How to Create the Perfect Cheese Lover’s Gift Basket


Do you have a cheese lover in your life? Their day, National Cheese Lover’s Day, is right around the corner on January 20th. That being said, we want to give you a guide on how to construct the perfect cheese gift basket for your recipient. Let’s get started!


When it comes to creating a cheese basket, having a variety of cheeses is super important. Try and pick some with different flavors and textures, a good rule of thumb is to pick one type of cheese from each category:


Hard Cheese:

- Cheddar

- Gouda

- Pecorino Romano


Semi-Firm Cheese:

- Edam

- Cantal

- Manchego


Soft Cheese:

- Brie

- Camembert

- Goat Cheese


Blue Cheese:

- Gorgonzola

- Roquefort


Once you have your cheeses picked out, you can throw in a few more items like crackers and a bottle of wine and you have a nice gift. To upscale your gift basket a little more, you can take the crackers out of their box and put them in a cellophane gift bag. We just know any cheese lover would love to be the recipient of this basket!
