It can be difficult to come up with fresh ideas for Christmas gifts year after year. But if you know someone who loves cheese and fine food, you’ll find the perfect solution in our Christmas Cheese Gifts range. We have a host of cheese and fine food selections as well as luxury cheese hampers, cheese platters and cheese knife sets, all specially selected to help you make someone’s Christmas extra special. Here are a few ideas to inspire you.
Cheese to give as a Christmas gift
When you think of Christmas cheese, Stilton immediately springs to mind. That’s why our lovely Stilton Jars are so popular at this time of year. They cost from £12 to £28 and come in attractive Paxton & Whitfield-branded 100g, 250g and 500g jars.
Alternatively, you might like to give a set of Stilton, crackers and Port, in which case The Paxton or The Whitfield will fit the bill. Both contain a delicious Stilton Jar along with crackers and Port – a great gift not least because they don’t need to be consumed immediately. The cheese and crackers as well as the Stilton will keep (unopened) for up to three months (though you’ll need to keep the Stilton in the fridge). .
Our cheese gift box sets are a good option for any fine food fan. New for this year are the Cheddar Lovers Box, which contains Cheese Squares, Cheddar and a chutney; the Blue Cheese Lovers Box which contains our Shropshire Blue Cheese Squares, a waxed Stilton and Quince; and the Rustic Treats Gift Box which contains Paxton & Whitfield Oaties, shredded pork and our Nuts About Prunes preserve. These work perfectly as gifts as there’s no need to refrigerate.
Cheese knives and cheese knife sets are also a great choice if you’re looking for a Christmas gift which will last.
The Paxton Cheese Knife and Sharpener Set includes a bone handled cheese knife with sharpening steel which has been exclusively designed for Paxton & Whitfield and costs just £25 while The Paxton Cheese and Wine Sommelier Set (£40) comprises a steel cheese knife with a quality corkscrew.
An interesting and rather unusual choice would be the Victorinox Cheese Knife (£45) a Swiss cheese pocket knife which is great for when you’re taking cheese as part of a packed lunch or picnic.
There are lots of other gift ideas for cheese lovers. Take our wide selection of quality cheese boards for example. There are wooden and slate cheese board options as well as our ever-popular Big Feast Oak Board (£45) which can stand proud as an eye-catching centrepiece, perfect for anyone who likes to entertain. Or perhaps the Cheese Curler, Camembert Baker or Fondue Set are what you need to make someone smile this Christmas?
