I love cheese! Creamy brie, sharp cheddars, port wine spread, and goat cheese topped with herbs, these make me feel like a kid in a candy store. My husband and I love sampling cheese, cooking with cheese, and having a date night each week where we dine on a variety of cheese, crackers, and grapes with a nice bottle of wine for dinner. I can whip up a last minute dinner out of virtually nothing, as long as we have cheese in the house. So from one cheese lover to another, these cheese gifts will have you devising new ways to engage your love for cheese.
Unique cheese gifts
Ready to take their next gathering to another level? For the host or hostess who loves cheese, a cheese baker will make a great gift. Make sure to give it with a cheese wheel and a crusty loaf of bread for dipping. This dish can go right from the oven to the table, so they can serve this melted cheese delight without transferring it to a serving dish.
Another unusual gift for cheese lovers is a quesadilla maker. Being a cheese lover, quesadillas are a staple food in our house. We always have tortillas and cheese in the refrigerator. We just add in leftover meats and vegetables for a quick tasty dinner. However, we sometimes lose the fillings when flipping it. A quesadilla maker prevents this problem. This one can even be used to make homemade tortillas.
You can also get them a cheese toastie maker. Again, when you make them on the stove, the fillings often fall out when being flipped. Sometimes they cook unevenly, and it is hard to get the cheese to melt completely. A cheese toastie maker will cook these sandwiches more evenly and melt the cheese better. Anyone who lives for cheese will know what I’m talking about and appreciate these useful gadgets.
Best cheese gifts
This fun cheese gift has 30 different kinds of cheese that can be made at home. I am going to take this on as a new hobby!
For the meat and cheese lover, get a cheesy bacon box so they can cure their own bacon in addition to making cheese. We love this meat candy at my house, so I will have to try this too. Bacon and cheese just go so well together.
You will want to get them a step by step cheese making guide for additional tips and ideas.
Best gifts for cheese lovers
Send them for a cheese and wine tasting, or a beer and cheese tasting. Good cheese, good drinks, and good friends all go together to mark a special occasion.
For cheese tasting at home, get them a cheese subscription box. They will get four seasonal cheeses to try, delivered right to their door. Or you can get a tea, cake, and cheese box for those who like sweets with their cheese. For some history about local cheeses, get A Cheesemonger’s History of the British Isles in paperback.
Favourite gifts for cheese lovers
Our family likes to have holiday game days where we spend time together eating appetisers and finger foods, while playing games. We made fondue this year and served it with bread, grapes, and raw veggies. It was fun spending time preparing the fondue together and then eating it while playing Scattergories.
For the traditional Swiss dish raclette, a party hotplate with individual cheese pans and individual spatulas will be a big hit. The top is a griddle for cooking up cheese or other snacks. I think this will be great for a small gathering. Don’t forget to include a fondue cookbook with tasty recipes for them to try.
Cheese presents for family
This is a quick game, similar to Irish Snap. It is best for up to 8 players ages 8 and up. Games don’t take long so you can fit in as many as you like.
For the younger crowd get Cat and Mouse, a game where you have to be the first to collect pieces of cheese and get to the top of the giant cheese. For adults who like puzzles, get a wine and cheese jigsaw puzzle.
Gourmet cheese gifts
Six gourmet cheddars fill this box including Ginger Spice, which has chunks of crystalized ginger, as well as creamy Black Bomber. They just need some crackers, grapes, and a bottle of red wine for a smorgasbord of cheese filled delight.
Brie, bleu cheese, hot chilli, plus luxury cheese biscuits can be found in the Cheerful Cheesemonger Hamper. Or get a Luxury Cheese and Smoked Salmon Hamper and pair it with a good bottle of white wine. Boozy Cheeses has a selection which includes gin & tonic cheese, a whiskey orange round, and a cheese made with brewer’s yeast. Pair these with a craft beer.
Presents for cheese lovers
While these cheeseboards make excellent gifts, you may want to order one for yourself as well. Many come with a set of cheese knives and they make a great display for entertaining.
Mini chalkboards with liquid chalk for labelling cheeses will come in handy. I need to get some of these myself. They can be erased and used over and over again. This marble cheese slicer also makes an elegant gift. If the cheese board you choose doesn’t already come with utensils, get them a cheese knife set as an additional gift.
Fun cheese gifts
Looking for some fun cheese themed gifts? What about some silly cheese themed earrings? Whether slices of swiss cheese or mini charcuterie boards, these are sure to get a laugh.
For someone who likes sweets, cheesecake scented candles will be a delight to the senses. Or get them a silly t-shirt declaring their love of cheese. For a funny gift for kids, a cheese nightlight will give them a warm glow to see by, emanating from a wedge of cheese.
This is a date night in a box. A bottle of wine, tasty cheese, and some crackers, what more can they want?
For the beer lover, get a cheese pub hamper which includes beer, meat, cheese, and other snacks. The hamper comes with two beers, so it also makes a great date night.To create a meat and cheese board at home, send a charcuterie letterbox gift which also includes olives, crackers, and chutney. However, this one doesn’t include wine, so you might want to send a bottle of that as well.
What to get someone who loves cheese
Everyone loves pizza. I have new neighbours who want to buy a pizza oven for their yard. I say, why not get one for the kitchen. Then you can make cheesy pies all year without worrying about the weather.
Cheese gifts for a sweet tooth
Cheese doesn’t have to be savoury. It can be sweet too. Who doesn’t like a mouthwatering piece of rich cheesecake? This gift will give them a selection of tiny bites of Heaven.
Useful gift ideas for cheese lovers
You don’t want to get them fancy cheeses only to have them go bad. A cheese vault is the proper way to store cheese. It allows the cheese to breathe without moisture build up, therefore preventing mould from forming. Another way to keep cheese fresh is by wrapping it in cheese paper.
For shredding cheese get them a box cheese grater. The box design makes it easier to keep steady and the majority of the cheese goes inside the grater so it doesn’t end up all over the counter.
