The Art of Gifting

Love pillow via Orchard + Olive

I often get asked how I came up with the idea behind our company. For the most part, it's a lot like asking someone how they figured out what they wanted to do in life (career wise). Which means that yes, there are dreams and aspirations involved but there are also coincidences that get you there. 

House of Lilac was founded on the premise of thoughtful gifting. I was once told at a conference that one of the ingredients to doing what you love was to take what mattered most to you in life and transition that into your work life. What mattered most to me in life was and is my family. And giving to them on all levels was and always will be my priority. What I loved and wanted most was a career full of creativity, flexibility, and success. Cue a love for thoughtful gifting and wrapping (always) and mix that with the wonderful clients who coincidentally saw these talents in me and asked me to source and gift for them, and the House of Lilac gift company was born. 

We love what we do. We are on the mission to perfect the art of gifting by sourcing, curating, and gift styling our gift boxes and details with all the thought and all the love our hearts can give. And we work every day with the hope of not only spreading this love to those who receive our gifts but also with the belief that it is more blessed to give than to receive.
