The 12 Cheesiest Gifts for Cheese-Lovers
Know any cheese-lovers? Of course, you do! You’ll want to get your hands on our best gifts for cheese lovers. These cheese gifts are practical, fun and just a little bit cheesy (but in the best way!).
Marble cheese board
When you’re making a beautiful cheese board for your next party, you’ll definitely want a gorgeous board to display it all on. This marble one from Anolon is accented with a stripe of teak making it a great match for almost any decor.
OK, this one is cheesy, but it’s so fun and trendy! This print would look great hanging in any kitchen.
Keeping your cheese fresh can be a challenge (if it ever lasts more than a few days!). But if you find yourself with a refrigerator shelf full of half-eaten blocks and wedges, you just might want to consolidate with a silicone cheese vault. The vault won’t lock your cheese away with a combination, but it does lock in flavor and freshness. Really! We tested it! It’s well worth the investment to save every last morsel of gouda, cheddar and chevre.
Whether you’re indulging in a nice Manchego or a soft brie, you’re going to need a good set of knives to serve those cheeses up. These goldtone knives are an elegant yet modern option to go along with your cheese board. Get some ideas on how to assemble your perfect cheese spread here.
Cheese making kit
Know a friend that’s serious about cheese? Maybe that friend is you? Well, why not try your hand at making some yourself! This kit walks you through how to make mozzarella, ricotta, cream cheese and more. This is the cheese gift that keeps on giving!
You don’t want anyone confusing that white cheddar with a jack cheese on your cheese tray, do you? So why not grab a few customizable cheese markers. These slate signs can be written on with a chalk pen and wiped clean for your next party.
Do you know someone that never says “stop” to the waiter grating parmesan over their pasta? (Or are you that person?) This is the perfect gift. This rotary grater makes grating hard cheeses like parmesan and romano a cinch. Try it over these five-star pasta dishes.
Real cheese lovers don’t just limit themselves to that fancy cheese tray! They surely love all the cheesy dips, too, like queso. This adorable serving set is just right for your next Taco Tuesday. And don’t forget these great queso dip upgrades!
A book about cheese trays (and more!)
Undoubtedly the cheese tray is the purest way to enjoy a good cheese—just grab a slice and enjoy (I won’t tell if you don’t even grab a crostini). If you love assembling these beautiful spreads, why not take your tray to the next level. This beautiful book shows you how.
Some cheeses don’t require the heft of a knife. For those softer cheeses, spreads and cheese balls (we’ve got some dynamite recipes here), you’ll want some pretty spreaders. We love these silver spreaders for their antique look and positive vibes!
Know a cheese-loving hostess? This adorable dishtowel makes for a great hostess gift (so do these fun items). It’s small, useful and so adorable.
Cheese grater kit
We all know that freshly grated cheese is best (don’t know why?—check out our top three reasons). Get the cheese you want—sliced, finely shredded and more—with this seven-piece grater set from OXO Goodgrips. Best of all, this kit comes with a plastic container that helps you measure and store your cheeses. Nice!
