We all know someone who is crazy about cheese and what better present than some lovely cheese! Do you have a friend or family member who always opts for the cheese board rather than a sweet dessert, would they choose cheese over chocolate? Some people would even have a cheese wedding cake rather than a traditional cake. They may always choose the savoury option over sweet or they may love both.
Cheese may not be something that you would think of as giving as a gift, but it makes a great gift for anyone who loves cheese or someone who has plenty of things and you think would like some luxury cheeses. Obviously, you need to know if the person likes cheeses and if it would be something they would enjoy and not something you would buy for someone who has a dairy intolerance or really dislikes cheese.
For a cheese fan, the gift of cheese is bound to make them smile a cheesy grin! There are so many different types and varieties of cheese and you could get a selection of cheeses in a box maybe along with some chutney’s or you could make up a hamper with cheeses, crackers, chutney and maybe a bottle of wine or port too as they make a perfect accompaniment to cheese.
Ok so you aren’t just going to get them a pack of Cathedral City Cheddar and some supermarket own brie for a gift you are looking at getting some luxury cheeses and there are websites that offer some wonderful hampers full of delightful tasty cheeses from around the world. You could sign them up for a cheese subscription where they receive different cheeses to taste each month of the year. A cheese subscription would make a wonderful wedding gift or birthday gift or maybe a Fathers or Mothers day gift. A cheese subscription can be bought for any occasion and it would be fab to receive a little surprise package of cheese each month to enjoy. The perfect way to get your cheese loving friend to sample new cheeses and maybe they will get to taste some cheeses they have never tried before.
Or how about a cookbook with cheesy recipes or a cheese tasting workshop may be right up their street. Once you get thinking there are plenty of gifts you can buy someone who is mad about cheese.
