The chances are high that you have a party-inclined friend who loves to throw together a social event as often as possible, and in a spectacular fashion to boot. Unsure of what to gift your favorite cheese-loving party host at their next birthday party or get together? Take a look at a few of these delightful gifts that are sure to please the cheesy social butterflies within your friend circle.
Serving in Style: Presentation Gifts
Extra Large Stone Age Slate Cheese Board (on Amazon): No cheese-lover’s party is complete without the perfect serving platform for all of their delicious cheeses, and this beautiful slate board is large enough to hold a wide number of cheeses and accompaniments with ample room to spare. The board even comes with pieces of soapstone chalk so that the host can easily label and identify specific cheeses and other goodies on the serving platform.
Swiss Cheese Party Plates (on Amazon): Equally as entertaining as they are functional, these adorable party plates genuinely resemble a hearty slice of Swiss cheese. Each set comes with four dishwasher-safe plates, and each of the plates has a built-in notch that fits almost any size wine glass, so guests are left with a free hand to open doors or sneak more bites of cheese from the serving station.
The Munchies: Edible Gifts
The Fruits & Honey Trio Gift Box (on Cheese Companion): Our Fruits & Honey trio set of Cheese Companions will make the perfect addition to any party host’s cheese plate at their next event. Each trio includes a Spanish orange blossom honey as well as one jar each of the Dried Fruits Companion and the Pear Ginger Companion. Each jar complements a variety of different cheeses, from basic cheddar to a strong-flavored blue cheese, making every bite an enjoyable culinary experience.
Perfect Partners Cheese Pairing Box (on Amazon): Take some of the stress off of your host’s plate by gifting them with a cheese box containing 3 cheese offerings specifically tailored for red wine, white wine, or beer drinkers. Each box contains 24 ounces of cheese, and each cheese comes with a handy reference card highlighting which beverages are most suited to its flavor profile.
Handy and Helpful: Appliance Gifts
Boska non-stick fondue set (on Amazon): Although a fondue pot may seem a little bit retro, any party goer will be hard-pressed to resist the temptation of a giant bowl of melted cheese after a few cocktails. This fondue set was part of one of our giveaways earlier this year, and it is seriously nice. What we loved the most about it is the non-stick finish. It made it really easy to get the nice crust of caramelized cheese at the bottom of the pot! The fondue set comes with a 1 liter bowl (nice size) and 4 fondue forks.
Boska Raclette Cheese Melter (on Amazon): Help your host step things up a notch with the assistance of a cheese melter that creates perfect sheets of melted cheese to cover everything from potatoes and meats to simple appetizers. The electric Raclette melter simply plugs in and warms the desired wedge of cheese to the perfect gooey consistency to compliment a whole host of tasty treats.
The More You Know: Reference Gifts
Cheese & Beer (on Cheese Companion): If your partying, cheese-loving friend also happens to be a beer connoisseur, consider gifting them with Janet Fletcher’s book that will explain in great detail which beers pair best with certain cheeses. Consider gifting this book with a pack of the host’s favorite beer as well as their favorite cheese for a complete experience.
The Charted Cheese Wheel (on Pop Chart Lab): As well as being a great reference if you find yourself curious about a particular type of cheese, this unique piece of artwork is also an entertaining point of conversation during social events. The chart includes 65 of the most beloved cheeses from around the world, all sorted into categories that detail everything from which animal provided the milk for a specific cheese, to the varying textures certain cheeses possess.
No party is complete without some fantastic cheeses and cheese accessories, so be sure to keep your host well-stocked with a wide variety of entertaining items that will ensure their next event is a complete success!
