Cheesy Things to Give this Holiday Season
So, this holiday season, why not help all your friends and family to become
your loved ones are equipped with the essentials for enjoying cheese on the regs.
Everyone needs at least one beautiful board for serving cheese. Slate boards are
my favorite because they’re durable and cheeses stand out against their matte darkness.
You can even add a monogram too, if you order through Brooklyn Slate’s website.
This little cleaver is truly the only cheese knife you need, whether for
slicing Havarti, chipping chunks off Parmigiano, or spreading soft, fudgy blues.
It also looks pretty bad-ass on a cheese platter.
Cheese paper: it’s what every cheese lover needs.
This French-made paper protects cheese from the harsh environment of
your fridge, helping to keep your cheeses fresh and free of unwanted mold.
A cheese pornographer’s dream! Lit by tea candles underneath the surface,
this portable raclette setup lets you pour melted cheese onto anything you want.
I especially recommend it for the cheese lover on Instagram.
Shameless self-promotion alert! #TheGoudaPin and #TheCamembertPin
are the sexiest cheese swag of the season. These hard-enamel bad-boys
are a thoughtful and affordable way to show off your undying love of cheese.
For anyone whose New Year’s resolution is to eat more cheese,
these adorable journals help keep track of every wedge and wheel.
Maybe buy some for your friends and start a monthly cheese meetup.
7.Damn Fine Jam
Most people won’t buy $10 jam, so buy it for them. My favorites are Quince & Apple’s Fig and Black Tea Preserves,
Stagg’s Banana Jam, The Preservation Society Pepper Jelly, and anything by Lemon Bird Preserves.
You can also stuff them into a basket filled with all their cheese-platter needs.
8. Great Cheese
Like, duh. Try gifting a whole wheel of something special, like Harbison,
this soft-as-frosting treasure wrapped in bark. If you’re traveling far, try an older cheese,
like gouda or Comté. They’re more durable and don’t require refrigeration.

9. Dank Drank
Give them a special bottle of their poison and add a cheese pairing suggestion to your card.
Rosé, parkling wine and bombers of craft beer or cider all pair well with lots of cheeses.
You can always mix it up a fine whiskey, which would go great with that wedge of gouda.
Murray’s is one of my favorite cheese destinations in NYC and I love their gift boxes.
Sometimes it’s just better to let the experts select the cheeses and the perfect pairings.
There are a lot of boxes to choose from, some with chocolate truffles and others with prosciutto.
They’re especially useful for sending to friends across the country.
All opinions are my own.
