#1 A cheese tasting trip

If you are looking for the best gifts for cheese lovers who also love traveling, I just found the perfect gift for you!

On Viator, you can find over 6,000 different cheese-related tours around the world. Some fun tours you can think off are cheese and wine tasting in Paris, The Edinburgh cheese crawl, or a cheese-making workshop in Spain.

You can find a tour close to the recipient’s home, or at their next travel destination. And if you are not sure when to book the tour for them, you can always go for the Viator gift card (called the Global Experiences Card), so they can book it themselves.


#2 DIY Italian cheesemaking kit

This is definitely one of the best gifts for cheese lovers who love Italian cheese. And let’s be honest. Has there ever been a cheese lover who doesn’t love Italian cheese? A cheese lover who doesn’t love a delicious mozzarella, parmesan, or ricotta?

And the best thing about this gift is that they don’t even have to travel to Italy to try a fresh, homemade cheese. They can simply make it at home!

The kit includes all the equipment and ingredients that they need to make six of the most popular Italian cheeses; mascarpone, mozzarella, bocconcini, burrata, ricotta, and ricotta salada.

And not just one batch, but up to ten batches of each cheese!

By the way, if you like the idea of giving DIY food kits, you may also like the next gift or the 25 international DIY kits.


#3 International DIY cheesemaking kit

If you liked the idea of gifting a DIY cheesemaking kit and your recipient loves cheese from around the world, then this international cheesemaking kit might be even better than the Italian version.

Just like the Italian one, this kit includes all the ingredients, equipment, and instructions (very helpful) to make different cheeses.

In the international kit, the ingredients can be used to make the following cheeses: mozzarella, ricotta, mascarpone, halloumi, Greek-style cheese, Scottish crowdie, labneh, goat’s cheese, queso blanco, and paneer!


#4 US cheese gift basket

If you are looking for gifts for cheese lovers who don’t have time time to make their own cheese. Or those who are (let’s be honest) simply too lazy or impatient to make the cheese themselves, cheese gift baskets are the way to go.

The Jasper Hill Farm cheese gift baskets are available in seven different styles and may include ten different kinds of cheese (depending on which style you choose).

But there is one drawback to this gift. Food52 only ships inside the US. So if you are looking for cheese lovers gifts for someone outside the US, you should go for the next cheese gift basket.


#5 English cheese gift basket

If you liked the idea of gifting a cheese gift basket and you are looking for cheese gift ideas for someone who loves the UK, this is the perfect gift for you!

An English cheese gift basket. The box includes burts blue, washbourne, Cornish yarg, Westcombe cheddar, crackers, and Yorkshire chutney. A delicious treat for people who love English cheese


#6 Cheese knives set

Are you looking for gifts for cheese lovers who also love Morocco or Portugal? This is the gift you need!

I know, I know.

Morocco and Portugal are not really two countries that are famous for their cheeses. But these cheese knives are decorated with the typical Moroccan or Portuguese tile print. So even though the cheese is not from one of these countries, the pattern will still remind the recipient of their favorite country!


#7 International cheese gift basket

Alright, this is the last cheese gift basket, I promise.

And this last basket is also one of the best gifts for cheese lovers who love all types of cheeses.

The basket includes seven different kinds of cheese from around the world.

All they need is a sh*tload of cheese and some veggies and bread to dip in the cheese.


#9 Cheese-related phone cases

Personally, I thought the “To brie or not to brie” one was quite funny. But definitely check out Zazzle of the giftee doesn’t love puns as much as I do.

Oh, one last remark about the phone cases. Unfortunately, Zazzle only provides cases for iPhones and Samsung phones.


Cheese gifts for mid budgets

Now I know that a cheesemaking course is not really the first thing you think about when you are looking for gifts for vegans, but did you know that there are plenty of ways to make delicious vegan cheese too?!

I am a huge cheese lover myself, and cheese is the main reason why I still eat vegetarian instead of vegan. But, I must say the vegan cheese market is getting better and better. And the more I try, the more enthusiastic I get about vegan cheese.

So why not give cheese lovers the opportunity to broaden their horizons and try and make a dairy-free cheese for a change?

It’s definitely one of the most sustainable cheese gift ideas on this list!
