21 Cheese Gifts For A Seriously Gouda Holiday Season

In this world there are few things that we love more than our family, our friends, and our night cheese. And as the holiday season continues joyously on, we come to realize that the solution to the ever-growing list of presents we need to buy is simple: cheese-themed gifts. What says “Happy holidays” better than a cheese-of-the-month subscription, or a sweatshirt that properly expresses your love of wine and cheese nights? Nothing.

It’s safe to say that cheese has control over our lives, but really, we wouldn’t have it any other way. A warm, gooey bowl of mac and cheese is the culinary equivalent to a comforting hug. A smear of brie takes us to another plane as we enjoy a fancy, artistically cultivated cheese plate. And sometimes, there’s just nothing better than a heavy sprinkling of parmesan over a hot plate of pasta. We dream of cheese from morning to night, so why wouldn’t we express our love of it through holiday gifts?

Christmas morning, you’ll find me cozy in my pajamas with a tasty cheesy breakfast in front of me. I’ll have a proper stash of cheese-themed gifts waiting for everyone on my list, and hey, maybe I’ll even buy a couple for myself too.
