The holiday season brings back strong memories of the little things. A quiet evening by the Christmas tree sipping libations with those close to us, a call from someone you haven’t heard from in a while, or a big holiday meal surrounded by loved ones. Seeing the light in our favourite person’s eyes as they unwrap a meaningful present is a heartfelt moment you’ll cherish forever.
With each token of our love and appreciation, we give this holiday season, the sentiment that goes with it is just as important: I love you. I am thinking of you. You bring me joy and happiness.
In this guide, we’ve featured incredible gift ideas ranging from home decor, to fine dining and of course, our specialty: fare forward tableware designed to invoke nostalgia and sophistication to your kitchen.
As in all things Lineage, remember that the time we spend together making memories and enjoying good conversations over good food is oftentimes the best gift of all.

Shop for a gift that your loved ones can enjoy all year round with a piece of home decor that will remind them of you each time they look at it. We’ve curated a list of home stores and decor options that work well with any budget.
Many of our best memories have happened around the kitchen table. This year, surprise your significant other or loved ones with the foundation of reminiscing with a new dining table and chairs. Our friends at Moe’s Home have an incredible selection of tables to suit any taste, with matching dining chairs to accentuate. The Graze Dining table is our current favourite, accented by our Blackberry glazed dinnerware.

After the holidays, take a night off from the kitchen and treat that special someone in your life to a night out at one of these delicious restaurants. No matter your location, we have an exquisite option that will delight your taste buds. Pick up a gift card to one of these fine establishments for that perfect stocking stuffer.
The Mackenzie Room (Vancouver)
The Mackenzie Room is where Rustic meets Refined. Cuisine curated from local BC ingredients will entice you to forget the outside world to spend quality time with your loved ones. Enjoy a menu that is typically served family-style and created with purpose by head chef Sean Reeve.
Cafe BlackBird (Edmonton)
Cafe BlackBird is a Conscious Coffee Collective nestled in the heart of Crestwood. Pick up gift cards for coworkers or friends to treat them to a perfectly perked roast. Or consider their restaurant for all-day breakfast and brunch menus that will spark connection and conversation during a slow Sunday morning.
For our friends out east, we highly recommend snagging a gift card to town. Their philosophy is simple: good food, good prices, great location, grand times. That’s something we can get behind. They have created a delightful bottle shop with curated wines, craft beers and interesting spirits to shop, making it the perfect stop for the beverage aficionado in your life.
Enchant the one you love with a signature piece from Lineage Ceramics. Our tableware is designed in Vancouver and made in the hometown of our founder Shuobi Wu, Teochew. Each piece is handcrafted with love and intention, much like every gift you so carefully wrap and place under the tree each December. Here are a few ideas of incredible gifts to bestow upon your friends and family this holiday season.
If there is one gift we know will be a hit, it’s our Party Plate. At 11.5” across, this plate is the life of the party. It can handle any main dish for a festive feast or provide a quaint background for a dessert tray. For the ultimate gift for the host/hostess in your life, pair the Party Plate with a gift card to your local cheese shop. They can experience the joy of creating an expansive charcuterie board for their next soiree, all deliciously displayed in one of our four signature glazes.
Cozy up this Christmas with one of the newest additions to the Lineage Ceramics Family: the Coffee Collection. Our 8oz Coffee Cup and Saucer or our 3oz Espresso Cup is an impeccable gift for the caffeine lover in your life. Pair either of these handcrafted mugs with a package of locally roasted beans for a perfectly percolated package.
Lineage Gift Card
Isn’t the best gift one that they can buy themselves? Give a Lineage Ceramics gift card and let your loved ones pick out the tableware of their liking. We have an endless amount of options to fit any preference, from plates, bowls and cups to serving sets for 2, 4 or 6.
