The Best Last-Minute Father’s Day Cheese Gifts

Even though Father’s Day comes late this year, there’s a lot going on, and maybe you haven’t had the chance to shop for the special dad in your life yet. Or maybe circumstances have you social distancing from Dad when you’d usually be together on the holiday, and you’re looking for a way to show your appreciation from afar. 

Not to worry—there are still plenty of great gifts that your cheese-loving dad will love. If you miss the Tuesday, June 16 deadline for us to ship cheese packages and Cheese Grottos to arrive by Sunday, June 21, these last-minute Father’s Day cheese gift ideas are just the thing to make Dad’s special day.

cheese subscription service

Get Dad one of our artisan cheese subscriptions.

The gift that keeps on giving! With our Monthly Cheese Subscription, you can sign him up for a delivery of one, two, or three of our amazing artisan cheeses every month. Each month, we highlight a different small-scale domestic maker producing some of the best wheels in the country right now, from buttery Bries to brawny blues. 

If once a month is a little much, go for the Quarterly Cheese Subscription instead. He’ll get two pounds of cheese every three months—a periodic reminder of how much you care.

Let him go nuts in our online store with a Cheese Grotto gift card. 

With a Cheese Grotto gift card, Dad can shop to his heart’s content in our online store, whether he’s into discovering new cheeses or having a beautiful, handmade Cheese Grotto of his very own to keep his favorite wedges tasting their best

This way, he has options: Dad can pick and choose between single cheeses or purchase a bundle from a single maker. And the Grotto comes in four different sizes, from the petite Piatto, for the cheese lover who keeps just a couple of wedges on hand at a time, to the stately Classico, with the capacity to age or store up to eight pounds of your favorite varieties (or even homemade wheels).

If Dad is more into experiences, we’ve also got some virtual tastings and cheesemaking classes coming up, too. Gift cards are good for tickets to our cheese and wine pairing class with Suhru Wines on July 12th and our Italian home cheesemaking class with Farmsteady on July 25th.

Use our Grilling With Cheese guide to make a Father’s Day menu Dad will love. 

If you’re lucky enough to be able to spend time with Dad this Father’s Day, we suggest preparing a summery, cheese-centric meal on the grill while he kicks back with a beverage. 

Our Grilling With Cheese guide features some of our favorite ways to incorporate cheese into your cookout repertoire, from queso blanco-topped elotes to juicy, chevre-stuffed figs to crispy, squeaky halloumi. After all, that’s what Father’s Day is all about, right? Good times with your favorite Dad.
