Unless you are lactose intolerant, you most likely adore cheese, because you would have to be crazy not to. If you know a special someone who is a big fan of cheese, there are so many gifts you can consider, which are ideal for birthdays, Christmases and everything in-between.
Luxury Cheese Hampers
Nothing screams sophistication quite like luxury cheese hampers, which have a wide selection of delicious cheeses in one beautifully presented gift basket. With various flavours to choose from, complemented by some scrumptious crackers and maybe even a pairing wine, you can guarantee your recipient will be in food heaven from the moment they open the hamper. Whether it’s for a friend, family member or colleague, you can guarantee they’ll feel extra special with this thoughtful gift.
If you’re going to opt for a cheese hamper, you should pick up some cheese markers, too. That way your recipient can mark each cheese to identify the different flavour strengths on the board. The key to a cheese board is to start with milder cheeses and work your way up to the strongest varieties. For example, if you start with a strong cheese like stilton, it will completely overpower your taste-buds and you won’t be able to taste milder flavours, such as cheddar. So, if you want your recipient to taste the full flavours of each cheese, treat them to some handy cheese markers.
A Personalised Wooden Cheese Board
A personalised wooden cheese board should be a staple item in a cheese lover’s home, because it is a celebration of their love of this creamy goodness. If they enjoy nothing more than whipping out the cheese board when friends come over, or simply like to take their pick from a selection in front of the TV, the customised cheeseboard is sure to become a much-loved present in their household.
Nothing says indulgence quite like melted cheese, right? A fondue set will therefore offer the perfect gift for cheese lovers to enjoy when they want to feel a little naughty. With their favourite flavour melting away in the pot, they can dip a variety of treats into the hot cheese, such as bread, chicken, vegetables or even apple slices. There are also plenty of fondue recipes online for them to try. Food heaven!
A Complementary Wine
What goes well with cheese? Wine, of course! Find out your recipient’s top cheese and pick the perfect wine to go with it. For example, if they are a gouda fan, you should pick up a bottle of merlot, which is sure to bring a smile to their face. Cheddar fans will appreciate a cabernet sauvignon, double Gloucester can be perfectly paired with a zinfandel, whilst parmesan goes well with a nice chianti.
Grilled Cheese Toaster
Nothing quite beats a grilled cheese toastie. With the grilled cheese toastie offering the perfect sandwich, your recipient will want to eat this cheesy-filled treat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is one gift they will want to use again and again.
