Personalized Charcuterie Board
The best charcuterie board gift ideas start with a high quality serving piece. Made of 100% acacia wood with a white-wash finish, this personalized board makes it easy (and stylish!) for giftees to graze their favorite fruits and cheeses, meats and spreads. While you’re at it, check out this one-of-a-kind mushroom-shaped charcuterie board, too—it’s one of our favorite mushroom decor pieces.
Filled with deluxe European cheeses, this cheese crate is the ultimate charcuterie board gift for cheese lovers (aside from a cheese of the month club subscription, of course). They’ll enjoy snacking on Swiss diablo, French Brie and Italian robiola. So no, this isn’t your ordinary brick from the grocery store.
Taste of Home Boards Platters & More
Even seasoned charcuterie board assemblers know that putting a meat and cheese platter together is a true art. Help them hone their skills with our very own charcuterie board book: Taste of Home Boards Platters & More. It’s filled with more than 50 charcuterie board ideas, all of which are guaranteed to impress guests.
Chalkboard Cheese Markers
Help your cheese-loving friends create their own board by gifting them these chalkboard markers. They come with chalk for labeling and are easy to reuse. Just wipe away the chalk with a wet cloth. No one will ever confuse the Jack for the Swiss again.
They’ll need some specialty meats to eat with all that cheese! Prosciutto, salame and soppressata are some of the best charcuterie board meats for an unforgettable spread—and they’re all included in this cured meats set. It’s just one essential part of building the most impressive Christmas cheese board.
Take a step back from your go-to cracker. Artisanal crackers need a place on your platter. We love the variety of Carr’s table water crackers. They’re light and won’t take away from all the other yummy goodies on this list.
A charcuterie board gift isn’t complete without a few spreads and mustards. This mustard collection complements any meat and cheese board thanks to their versatile flavors. Whether they prefer the original sweet honey mustard or have adventurous tastebuds for caramelized onion mustard, your giftee is in for a treat. There’s even a champagne mustard! You can’t go wrong with a mini jam jar, either.
Snacking on fresh fruit has never looked so cute. These small, handpainted stoneware bowls make the prettiest addition to any seasonal cheese plate. Plus, this dish doubles as a colander so they can wash and serve without dirtying an extra dish.
Because butter is best served smooth, this butter bell is a charcuterie board gift your loved one will enjoy every day. There’s a pocket to fill water at the base to keep butter flavorful and fresh. We love a butter crock for crafting an oh-so-spreadable butter board, too.
If they’re planning on hosting many wine and cheese nights or dinner parties, they’ll need a set of appetizer plates fit for party-throwing. This reusable set is dishwasher-safe, too, for easy cleanup.
Cheese spread-lovers know the key to making a charcuterie board for any size party is having a variety of boards to choose from. This marble and wood serving board fits the bill for intimate gatherings and at-home happy hour spreads. We’re seriously obsessed with the marble touch.
A quality serrated knife is always a good investment—and this beauty is no exception. They’ll be able to cut through breads, pastries and other delicate items with ease. As a Test Kitchen-favorite, this knife doubles as one of the best gifts for bread bakers.
Dark Chocolate Caramels
This charcuterie board gift is for the sweet tooth. These fancy caramels are the perfect excuse to indulge in chocolate on cheese night. Plus, they partner nicely with other cheese board accompaniments. (Or, add ’em to a chocolate charcuterie board.)
They’ll love these spoonable treats. These fun-sized preserves are a must for smearing on top of crackers, cheese and cured meats. They’re also featured in the Bonne Maman countdown, which is a coveted Advent calendar every year.
Use these sleek tools to serve cheese, olives and other bite-sized hors d’oeuvres. This pick set comes with eight tools so they’ll always have enough serving utensils on hand.
Throw this stash of gourmet mixed nuts into their gift bag. They’re roasted to perfection and are perfect for filling in the gaps on a charcuterie board.
We can almost taste the warm, crispy flavor of this artisanal bread. They’ll love the variety of this three-pack delivered straight to their door. And yes, bread is a charcuterie board food—it pairs perfectly with any meat, cheese or spread! Find more delicious Goldbelly food gifts.
Dried Fruit and Nuts
A handful of dried fruits and salted nuts always rounds out any appetizer tray nicely. For an extra touch, mix chocolate-covered fruit in, too.
In a pinch, gift them an appetizer assortment they don’t have to think about. This box from Harry & David is filled with impressive spreads (think green olive spread and bruschetta spread). It’s perfect for impromptu gatherings—or when they’re short on time this holiday season.
There’s no better food and wine pairing than cheese and a glass of red. Top off their charcuterie board gift with a Winc subscription. Wine is hand-delivered to their door just in time for a cheese board party, or they can save it for a “me-night.” Whatever the occasion, they’ll love sipping on quality wines they’ve never had before.
