By Candice Elliott | Updated: October 24, 2023

    Cheese aficionados know their love for this dairy delight exceeds the average block or wheel. But when gifting them something that complements their passion, clichéd items just won’t cut it. Dive into our curated list of 28 inventive and non-cheesy presents, each tailored to melt the hearts of cheese enthusiasts everywhere truly. Say goodbye to the predictable and hello to gifts that are as unique as their favorite Gouda or Brie!

  1. Sustainable Cheese Wrapping Paper
  2. gifts-for-cheese-lovers-paper

    This bee’s wrap paper is another excellent way to store cheese. It’s also eco-friendly! It’s breathable to keep cheese in perfect condition, washable, reusable, and compostable. The warmth from your hands softens the paper as you mold it around the cheese (or over a bowl or other food), and it cools to create a seal. The paper can be washed in cool soapy water and air-dried. 

  3. Grating Plate


    Cheese snobs do not consider the powdery stuff in a green can to be real cheese, never mind real Parmesan cheese. The best Parmesan comes in a wedge and must be hand-grated. That’s what this lovely dish is for. It’s a grating plate that can be used for grating hard cheeses, garlic, nutmeg, and turmeric, to name a few. The brush helps push what you’ve grated off the plate, and the tube is a garlic peeler. 

  5. Wine and Cheese Pairing Swatchbook 
  6. gifts-for-cheese-lovers-pairing-guide

    Wine and cheese are perfect together, but unless you’re an expert on both, it can be hard to know which wines pair best with which cheeses. This handy swatch book takes the guesswork out of it for you. Each swatch details the history, production, and flavors of 50 of the best cheeses worldwide and the best types of wine and vintages to pair them with.

  7. Cheesemaking Kit

  9. Dish Towel
  10. gifts-for-cheese-lovers-dishtowel

    Okay, we admit, this is a cheesy pun. Haha! See what I did there? This fun dish towel is made of 100% cotton flour sack material and printed with non-toxic ink. The towel is handmade in Asheville, North Carolina, and measures 28 x 28 inches.

  11. Fondue Maker
  12. gifts-for-cheese-lovers-fondue-pot

    Fondue is excellent not only because it entails dunking things into melted cheese but because it’s a communal thing too, and that’s always a perfect way to share food and fun with friends and loved ones. This electric fondue pot makes it easy. It includes the base, stainless steel, non-stick, dishwasher-safe bowl, temperature probe, eight fondue forks, and fork rack. You can use it for cheese, oil, or chocolate. 

  13. I Love Cheese Oven Mitt

    This oven mitt is for the unashamed cheese lovers out there! The glove is made of all cotton, and there is extra-quilted insulation on the inside, so your hand is protected from burns. In addition, the oven mitt is machine washable in case of cheese stains—a funny gift for a hostess with a sense of humor.

  15. Cheese Keeper
  16. gifts-for-cheese-lovers-keeper

    Cheese snobs would never store their cheese in plastic wraps or plastic bags. No, no, no! That is a cheese crime! The hardcore snobs don’t keep their cheese in the refrigerator, either. You can only fully appreciate the many nuances of cheese when it’s at room temperature. This cheese keeper allows the cheese to breathe while preventing moisture build-up and molding (the wrong kind). 

  17. Cheese Markers

This book will give you the backstory on more than 750 different cheeses and the areas they’re made, and it includes tasting notes and serving tips to elevate your cheese knowledge and cheese boards to the next level! 

  21. Grilled Cheese Toaster
  22. gifts-for-cheese-lovers-toaster

    I bet even the most renowned cheesemakers in the world love a grilled cheese sandwich. And not a fancy one with arugula and Asiago on wholemeal artisanal bread but one with cheap, fluffy, nutrition-free white bread and Kraft singles! This grilled cheese toaster can make either kind! Butter the bread, add the cheese, put it in the grilling basket, press the lever, and gooey, gooey, grilled cheese within minutes!

  31. Farmstand Fruit Spreads
  32. gifts-for-cheese-lovers-jams

    The sweet component of a cheese board is essential, and you don’t want to subject your best cheeses to average jelly in average flavors. However, that won’t be a concern with these fruit spreads. Each jar is made from local fruit from Alabama and handcrafted in copper kettles using generational techniques. The flavors are complex, unique, and delicious; Meyer Lemon & Thyme Blossom, Lemon Verbena & Dill Blossom, and Fennel Pollen & Lemon Balm. They will take your cheeseboard to the next level!
