Have you started your holiday shopping yet? This year, all of our gift boxes will be packed in our brand new packaging! Whether you’re planning to put it under the tree or ship it to a loved one across the country, our cheese gift boxes are a beautiful and delicious treat that your favorite people will love.
Each handsome blue box comes filled with cheese and pairings, tied with gold satin bow, and snugly packed in our sustainable Greencell Foam insulated shippers so the contents stay cold and protected during shipping. We’ve even printed the inside of each box with a helpful cutting guide for different types of cheese. But what’s inside is even better.
Our new Cheese Board in a Box is a beautiful and delicious way to show your favorite person that you care, whether they’re a budding connoisseur or a hardcore cheese lover. We’ve also launched our Cheese and Chocolate Pairing Gift Box, which matches three luscious American artisan cheeses with three bars from one of our favorite craft chocolatiers. Here are all the tasty details about our cheese gift boxes for the holidays in 2022.
What’s in Our Cheese Board Gift Box
Each Cheese Board in a Box package includes 3 American artisan cheeses, including a lush bloomy rind wheel like Bloomy Breeze from Firefly Farms, a nutty Alpine-style cheese such as Meadow Creek Dairy’s Appalachian, and a complex, dynamic sharp cheddar like Deer Creek’s The Stag. The rotating seasonal trio fits well in the Grotto Fresco or Grotto Mezzo.
We also include a box of crisp Olina’s Crackers and 6 carefully curated gourmet accompaniments for you to enjoy with your cheese:
- Fig Jam with Pears and Honey from Blake Hill Preserves
- Divina Pitted Italian Green Olives
- Ziba Shakurbai Heirloom Almonds from Afghanistan
- 70% Dark Chocolate from Milène Jardine
- Sliced Calabrese Salami from Creminelli Meats
- Sliced Prosciutto from Creminelli Meats
Our cheese gift box is a fun way for your recipient to explore cheese and food pairings and build their own cheese board at home with our online guide for a delicious, no-cook meal. Each box includes tasting notes, pairing ideas, and beverage suggestions so they’ll get the most out of your thoughtful gift.
Gluten-Free, Nut-Free, and Vegetarian Cheese Gifts
What if the folks on your holiday gift list have food allergies or dietary preferences? No problem! It’s easy to customize each cheese gift box so the recipient can enjoy every item.
We offer alternative gourmet pairing items, like puckery cornichons, chocolates, and/or additional cheeses, for those who may have a nut allergy, need gluten-free crackers, or require vegetarian alternatives to charcuterie or traditional cheeses made with animal rennet. Just select your preferences on the product page to customize your gift box.
Cheese Gift Basket With Cutting Board
We love edible presents like gift baskets and boxes for holiday giving because they taste amazing—and unlike other gifts, they leave no trace. Sometimes, though, it’s nice to include something your recipient can use long after the last slice of cheese has been enjoyed.
That’s why we offer the option to include one of our handsome bamboo cheese boards in your gift box! Our bamboo boards aren’t just beautiful—they’re three times stronger than solid oak. With the proper care, they’ll offer a lifetime of enjoyment.
What’s in Our Cheese and Chocolate Pairing Gift Box
We’ve got another new cheese gift box for 2022! Our Cheese and Chocolate Pairing Gift Box brings together two of our absolute favorite foods: award-winning artisan cheese and craft chocolate.
Each box includes a soft and supple bloomy rind, an umami-rich natural-rind aged cheese, and a savory clothbound cheddar as well as gourmet crackers. We worked with our friends at Miléne Jardine Chocolatier to select three of their best bars to pair:
- 70% Dark Chocolate
- 70% Pistachio Dark Chocolate
- 70% Toasted Coconut & Kaffir Lime Leaf Dark Chocolate
We’ll include pairing tips, and your happy recipients can also consult our online guide to pairing cheese and chocolate for tips and ideas as they dig into your thoughtful gift.
