As the holidays get closer, it’s our hope that we all find joy in the little things: a perfectly wrapped gift, a phone call from a friend far away, a delicious home-cooked meal, or a quiet night in with your loved ones.
At lineage, we not only believe in the power of communicating through food, but the tiny nuances included in the preparation process that makes every meal (no matter how small) memorable. The space that surrounds us is trivial, but enhances our experiences and sparks memories that are rich in love and happiness. From the candles to the napkins to the tableware to the spices used in every dish, and of course the quality company. Every element comes together to create a sensory experience that encourages your guests to linger longer and will be vividly remembered for years to come.
We have put together this small gift guide filled with design-forward, locally-made homeware that tells a story and elevates your home, while encouraging us all to live a more sustainable and beautiful life. Remember, it’s not about the tangible gift, but the sentiment behind it. We hope your holidays are filled with quality conversation, treasured moments with the people you love, and of course amazing food.
