Christmas is the perfect time to pop a bottle of port, lay out a favorite cheese, and kick up your feet. That’s why cheese gifts are great for everyone, from the super knowledgable fiend to the casual snacker.

Nothing excites a cheese enthusiast more than trying a new style, making their own, or splurging by upgrading their cheese board to something fancier (like this beauty from Anthropologie, $58).

We’ve gathered the best gifts for cheese lovers, from cheese making kits to fondue pots and hand-crafted cheese boards.

This Italian Cheese Making Kit makes up to 8 batches of cheese, all you need is milk. Included in this set are a cheese basket, thermometer, cheesecloth, vegetable rennet, citric acid, and cheese salt. You can make it in advance and enjoy the cheese with a bottle of port in good company, or you can create the cheese with your spouse and loved ones as a fun project.

Marbled Acacia Cheese Board

$58.00, Anthropologie

Why we like it:

  • Chocolate marble, acacia wood
  • Due to the crafted nature of this item, expect slight variation in the appearance of each unique piece
  • Hand wash

Display your fine cheese collection on this chocolate marble and acacia wood cheese board. The natural design will vary with each order, making each very unique.

One reviewer wrote: “I bought this item as a gift. As the other reviewers and the product description states, each piece is unique and will not look like the picture. My piece definitely had more chocolate marble in it. I still think it is gorgeous. Not only could this be used for cheese boards, but it would look beautiful as a centerpiece with some candles. It was also very heavy so I’m hoping that speaks to the quality.”
