Taste, thoughtfulness and time.
That’s the formula for finding the perfect gift. You’ve got the first two down pat. But time? That’s the elusive one.
Luckily, there’s an efficient way to find her a gift that says “I searched high and low for this” rather than “I just plucked the first thing I saw off the shelf.”
It’s called the Line.
Offering a collection of fashion, home and beauty products in a modern, approachable setting, the Line’s seasonal pop-up shop at the Waldorf Astoria — the e-tailer's first in Chicago — is ground zero for refined lady-gifting. With curated pieces from emerging and established designers, they take the guesswork out of holiday shopping.
Yes, she’ll love it. Yes, she’ll brag about it at brunch.
