The handbag was inspired by the need to carry around personal items and the extreme rareness of the gene that results in being born with bags for hands. Protect your appendage enhancer with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of purse hooks from Luxe Link.
Dozens of media outlets, including Marie Claire magazine and NBC's Today, have lauded Luxe Link's handy purse hooks, which decorate straps until they're needed, then unfurl to keep bags hanging safely from tables. The compact circles' clever design features an outer edge that unwinds and twists, revealing a curved arm sturdy enough to hold a 15-pound purse's strap or stage the rescue of a family of fallen closet hangers. Once the embellished front flips flush to any tabletop, bags hang without touching floors or falling out of sight.
Luxe Link's cache of faceplate designs ranges from nature-themed to blinged-out to decked with images of pop-culture figures such as The Beatles. Iconic artworks adorn such disks as the Birth of Venus hook ($25), and Swarovski crystals gleam in the shape of Hello Kitty's twinkling mug ($78). Personalize hooks by picking out a monogram ($25) or by presenting a zodiac print ($25) to a friend who happens to be Taurus the Bull. When not in service, Luxe Link hooks can slip back into compact shape or form a semicircular ring that works as a stylish purse charm.
