Get ready for a return to seasonal socializing with a fresh new look. Modella Lifestyle, in Vineland, has 5,000 square feet stocked with gorgeous women’s fashion, including designer clothing and accessories from favourites like Joseph Ribkoff, Tribal Fashion and Desigual. Pamela’s, in Jordan, is another stylish stop for women’s clothing and accessories.

Host A Perfect Holiday Gathering

Opening your home to guests again can feel a bit overwhelming after such a long hiatus, so make things easy on yourself by setting up a Lincoln-themed beverage area where guests can serve themselves sensational local sippers. Be sure to include a few bottles of bubbles, like Honsberger Estate Winery’s Blanc de Blancs Brut or Cabernet Franc Brut. Local beer is also a must, and Bench Brewing Company’s many seasonal sippers are sure to impress. Craft ciders are a great addition to any bar, with excellent local options nearby from Fielding Estate Winery and Lincoln County Cider. Be sure to have some non-alcoholic options too, like a mocktail featuring one of the delightful syrups made by Dillon’s Small Batch Distillers.

Other fantastic options for stocking up the bar for the holidays include Cave Spring Vineyard, Legends Estates Winery, London Born Wine Company, Rockway Vineyards, Sue-Ann Staff Estate Winery, The Good Earth WineryVieni Estates, and Vineland Estates Winery. For the ultimate bartending assist, call in The Mobile Mixer, and have their staff arrive in a hip bar on wheels to serve your guests.

Getting a hand from a local chef is another excellent way to add some ease to your holiday hosting duties. Consider bringing in food from local Lincoln favourites, like August Restaurant, Barnett Catering Co., Beamsville Bakery, Conversations Café, Giganti Events, Just Cooking, Lake House Restaurant, Smoke and Moonshine, and The Butcher and Banker Pub.

Wow Your Hosts With Just The Right Little Gift

Show your hosts how happy you are to be welcomed into their home again with a thoughtful gift that shares your love of Lincoln. A rare plant, a beautiful hand-tied holiday bouquet, an ornament for the tree or a tasty box of pastries from The Watering Can are all excellent options. Other excellent options for restocking your seasonal stash of host and hostess gifts include Cherry Lane, Grand Oak Culinary Market and Little Foot Farm.

Lincoln businesses are here for you this holiday season with a range of safe shopping options. If you’d prefer to shop from home, many local businesses are continuing to offer online shopping, curbside pickup, and home delivery. Reach out to the companies you’d like to support to learn more.
