The Best Cheese Gifts for Mother’s Day

It’s almost Mother’s Day—and that means it’s time to look for the perfect gift for the moms in your life. And if they like cheese? Well, you’ve come to the right place! These are some of our favorite cheese-centric Mother’s Day gifts that you can use to show the moms on your list how much you appreciate them.

Cheese Boards, Slates, and Knife Sets

Upgrade Mom’s cheese gear with a fresh set from our online gift shop. It’s got everything you need, including sizeable servers, chic black slates, and hand-carved wooden cheese knives. You can even write on the handles of our new black resin cheese knives so everyone knows which knife to use with which cheese. 

Her Very Own Cheese Grotto

If Mom is truly cheese-obsessed, she ought to have a Cheese Grotto in her kitchen! It’s the ultimate cheese storage method, after all.

The Classico is for those with a serious cheese habit—or who like to make and age their own wheels at home—while the Fresco is a slightly more compact yet still roomy model that holds several wedges at once. If she keeps just one or two cheeses around at a time, check out the Mezzo. The petite Piatto is great for the mom who’s just starting her cheese journey—or one with a smaller kitchen.

Cheese Packages and Cheese Subscriptions

Of course, the mom on your list needs something tasty to put on those boards or in that Grotto. Browse the bundles in our online cheese shop—we’ve got sets of cow, sheep, and goat cheeses she’ll love. 

Want a gift that will keep on giving long after Mother’s Day is over? Check out our monthly or quarterly artisan cheese subscriptions, featuring fantastic selections from a different American artisan maker in each shipment. 

Cheese Tasting Gift Boxes

Want to send Mom everything she needs for a delicious, exciting cheese feast? Get her one of our tasting boxes! You can customize the box with her favorite pairings like olives, charcuterie, chutney, truffle honeycomb, or dark chocolate—or choose our Full Artisan Cheese Tasting Gift Package to include them all!

Got a mom who eats vegetarian, nut-free, or gluten-free? No problem! Just choose the appropriate options when purchasing your box. 

A Virtual Cheese Tasting for the Whole Family

If your clan can’t be together for Mother’s Day, you can still share a fun experience and a lovely meal from afar with one of our virtual tastings or cheesemaking classes! Grab tickets for you and Mom to our cheese board building class on May 15 or our halloumi cheesemaking class on June 27. 

Want to get the whole family together for a virtual cheese experience in honor of Mom? Check out our private virtual cheese tastings! We’ll send you a box full of amazing cheeses and accompaniments to enjoy and can even coordinate wine pairings. If she’s a little more into DIY projects, go for our private virtual cheesemaking classes, which come with a home cheesemaking kit for each guest. Just add milk and cream! 

Cheese Grotto Digital Gift Card
