6 Gift Ideas to Make Every Cheese Connoisseur Melt
If you're like most of us, you probably have someone in your life who is difficult to buy for.
And you've likely experienced the tough task of having to purchase a gift for someone you don't know very well.
If this sounds all too familiar, not to worry, we're here to help!
We have compiled a list of our favourite gift ideas for anyone who loves cheese.
And after all, who doesn't love cheese?
1. Chic Cheese Art
There’s a fine line between cheesy art and cheese art.
Whatever the occasion, make sure you’re gifting the latter!
The person you’re buying for may love cheese, but chances are, they don’t want a giant picture of it on their wall.
However, something that adds a bit of chic style, and a dose of humour, can make for some awesome cheese art gift ideas.
If you're feeling creative, want to give something more personal, or simply want to stick to a small budget, there are plenty of great ideas out there for easy art that you can make yourself!
2. Cheesy Skewers
No cheese lover's kitchen is complete without a set of cheese skewers.
Well, that is unless they prefer to chow down on an entire cheese wedge with their fingers—and depending on how much they like cheese, that may very well happen behind closed doors!
But all jokes aside, a beautiful cheese platter deserves the proper cheese-enjoying instruments! And there are some seriously stylish skewers out there that’ll make the perfect gift for anyone who loves fine cheese.
3. Cheese Making Kit
As every cheese connoisseur knows, cheese isn’t just a dairy product. It’s a lifestyle, and an art.
Making it can be challenging, but also rewarding, and a lot of fun!
It may not be for everyone, but if your cheese-loving friend or family member is a little on the adventurous side and enjoys cooking or creating, a Cheese Making Kit is a great way for them to try their hand at cheese making.
4. Cheese Pairing Reference Book
If there's one thing we've learned in the cheese business, it's that no matter how much you think you know, there's always more to learn.
Any connoisseur at any level of experience should have at least 1 book about cheese pairing.
It's a great reference to have around when planning for a cheese platter, and it makes a lovely gift for any cheese lover.

5. Cheese Journal
Anyone who loves gourmet cheese is always on the hunt for new and exciting varieties to try.
But more often than not, they have also experienced trying to find "that cheese I had that one time, but I can't remember the name".
Or maybe your friend or loved one is exploring the world of gourmet cheese and wants to keep track of their findings.
This is where a Cheese Journal comes to rescue! The journal is a great way to keep track of new cheeses and flavours. Some even come with a vocabulary library!
6. Cheese Sampler or Cheese of the Month Club
So we've covered some of our favourite gifts to help your friend or loved one enjoy their gourmet cheese.
But one of the best gifts you can give to anyone who loves cheese, is cheese itself!
We've got a great assortment of Cheese Samplers, which include at least 3 different gourmet cheeses and at least 1 condiment (except for the "Just Cheese Please Sampler").
And our Cheese of the Month Club is a great gift that allows someone special to enjoy a different selection of fine cheeses each month.
We hope this will make you're next gift-giving event a little less challenging with some ideas that any gourmet cheese enthusiast is going to love!
