A selection of Cheese gifts for Christmas
We love cheese here at hampers.com …we also love all of the traditional accompaniments that really make a cheese board extra special, especially at Christmas – from chutneys, to pickles, to hand-baked crackers and biscuits.
Don’t forget the all-important job of choosing a special drink to go with the cheese too – wine, port or cider? What is the favourite of the cheese lover in your life? Hopefully, we have the perfect match below.
Here’s a small selection of cheese gift boxes and cheese and wine hampers (in a Friends' style, we hope you like) that we have on offer for you this Christmas season:
The Luxury Port and Stilton Hamper
The Port One
You can’t start a list of Christmas cheese hampers without port and stilton – it’s a classic festive combination – so we present to you The Luxury Port and Stilton Hamper .
In the lovely bamboo tray, the blue cheese lover in your life will find a delightful porcelain jar of Fine Cheese Stilton, as well as a 75cl bottle of Croft vintage Port from 2013.
To accompany the stilton and bring out the rich flavours in the Port, your specially chosen gift recipient can enjoy a spiced plum chutney, from Tracklements, as well as divine rye and charcoal sourdough crackers from the artisan bakers at Peter’s Yard. It’s the ultimate stilton and Port Christmas giftbox, delivered direct to their door.
For something a little smaller, see also The Little Port & Stilton Christmas Gift Box.
The Christmas Season Selection
The no alcoholic beverage one
Do you know a cheese lover who enjoys their cheese even better without an alcoholic beverage?
Whilst we admit, the mince pies and Christmas pudding have a touch of alcohol, The Christmas Season Selection comes without a bottle of something alcoholic. Instead, it has the most delightful selection of festive treats and includes a truckle of the Snowdonia Cheese Company’s Ruby Mist Cheddar, blended with white port and a hint of brandy to really enhance the flavour, as well as Savoursmith's Somerset Chedder Shallot Crisps, ...well, they had to be cheese-flavoured crisps, didn’t they?
The Christmas Eve Nibbles Hamper
The double Cheddar one
The Christmas Eve Nibbles Hamper includes not one, but two truckles of Cheddar cheese – a delight for any cheese board connoisseur.
Alongside the Ruby Mist, in its gorgeous deep purple wax coat, your special gift recipient can also enjoy a brand new addition to our Christmas hampers – the blue wax coated Rockstar. What a name, hey?!
It is the Snowdonia Cheese Company’s first vintage cave-aged Cheddar, matured in Welsh slate caverns in the heart of Snowdonia – just imagine what that must be like…and the taste is heavenly, or should that be 'earthly'???
The Classic Christmas Hamper
The red wine one
If you are looking for a Christmas wine and cheese gift basket, then look no further than The Classic Christmas Hamper.
It contains an utterly delicious, medium bodied, fruity Finca Amalia Rioja – a classic red wine to pair with cheese.
For long, dark winter afternoons or cosy Christmas evenings in, the red wine can be enjoyed with award-winning Ruby Mist Cheddar cheese and a spiced plum chutney on fig and spelt sourdough crackers.
Then, follow those savoury delights with a sweet selection of a mince pie, a slice of Gold Crown fruit cake and, perhaps, a Belgian chocolate or two.
We also have our traditional Cheese and Wine Hamper – perfect for all times of year, but especially at Christmas. Take a closer look.
The Grand Christmas Hamper
The big one
The Grand Christmas Hamper is an absolute stunner – one for all of the family to enjoy.
For all of the cheese lovers spending Christmas together, there are three delicious choices – a Black Bomber, a Ruby Mist, and the finest stilton, in a gorgeous blue and white jar.
There is a selection of crackers, as well as both Mrs Bridges’ cranberry sauce with port and Tracklement’s sticky fig relish.
To drink, you'll find a bottle of Croft Fine Ruby Port and a Savian Primitivo Puglia to draw out the flavours in each of the cheeses and the other savoury treats.
Your lucky gift recipient will have to dig deep to find these seven items though…as they will be nestled between Champagne, a Sauvingnon Blanc, marinated pork rillette, chocolates, cinder toffee, fudge and plenty of Christmas treats, including mince pies.
It's a stunning a selection in a lovely lidded wicker basket.
