Wine gift baskets are always a good choice. They're simple find, and even people who aren't that into wine can still appreciate a nice looking wine gift basket.
For the people you actually want to impress, or care about giving cool stuff, a cheese and wine gift basket is going to be a lot better. What’s not to love?
Cheese and wine naturally complement one another. Cheese is also a satisfying snack, especially as there are often nuts and seeds in the mix as well.
In this list, we’re highlighting some of the best cheese and wine gift baskets currently available online, making them easier to order, and there's more to choose from than your local grocer. Many of them include other items as well, helping to create a well-balanced gift.
There are a lot of options here, so to simplify, but one of my favorites is Harry & David's Deluxe Cheese & Wine Box. Harry & David are well known for their high quality gourmet food which is easy to buy & ship online. Plus, they have the option to upgrade the box to get charcuterie, cheese, and wine in one delivery.
Actually, Harry & David have a couple of gift baskets with cool themes like the Picnic basket (featured below), or you can pick a basket based on red or white wine, and whether or not you want to include Charcuterie in the mix!
There's too many options to choose from, but personally, I like rather than a one-time gift, I think it's really cool to give someone a subscription to a cheese of the month club or a wine of the month club.
Though you don't get the cool combo of wine and cheese, you can have fun sourcing the pairings, and these clubs often come with more details about the gourmet goods you get, like the story behind the wine maker, or which part of the world the cheese comes from.
Cheese & Wine Gift Baskets
Taste of Sicily Gift Basket
If you plan to give a wine and cheese gift basket, why not go all the way? This Taste of Sicily Gift Basket is a great example. In addition to the traditional items, it includes a cutting board, cheese markers, knives and cheese plates. You can also upgrade the wine and/or add extra treats to the basket.
Wine And Cheese Crate
Another option is this Wine and Cheese Crate. While it isn’t as bulky as a regular gift basket, the crate style would make this easy to transport and wrap up. The crate contains everything you need to enjoy wine and cheese, including a knife and a board, as well as chocolates, olives and crackers.
Chardonnay In A Box
This Chardonnay in a Box shows that gifts don’t need to be complicated. The box just includes 3 snacks and a bottle of chardonnay. It’s an easy way to show people how much you care.
Wine And Cheese Picnic Gift Set
This Wine and Cheese Picnic Gift Set is a fun idea. It contains 2 bottles of wine, along with salami, cheese and crackers.
Everything needed to enjoy a picnic is included too, like a cooler, glasses, a cheese knife and even napkins. You could buy a few more food gifts and stuff them in too, if you wanted something packed full of goodies.
The Wine And Cheese Grand Basket
This Wine and Cheese Grand Basket deserves its name. It offers a considerable selection of snacks that complement wine. This does include cheese, along with some cheese-flavored items. We can’t forget the related snacks either, like salami, olives and smoked almonds.
Fruit, Cheese & Stone Cellars Merlot Wine Gift Box
Gifts like this Fruit, Cheese & Stone Cellars Gift Box are unusual, but they shouldn’t be. The combination of items works incredibly well. You’ve got wine, cheese and crackers, along with fresh fruit and chocolate.
This creates a very nice balance of flavors and textures. The only problem is that the food would all be gone far too soon.
Gourmet Cheese With Wine Box
Many cheese and wine gifts are packed with filler items. This Gourmet Cheese with Wine Box is an exception to that rule.
It contains 4 different types of gourmet cheese, along with a selection of mixed nuts and dried fruit. Even more importantly, the included wine naturally pairs with the various items.
Three Cheese And Wine Gift Set
This Three Cheese and Wine Gift Set manages to be simple and elegant. It contains 3 different types of cheese, a box of savory biscuits and a bottle of wine, all nicely packaged in a wooden crate. The packing style looks more elegant than most and the gift is certain to impress.
Autumn Meat And Cheese Gift With Wine
This Autumn Meat and Cheese Gift with Wine adds meat into the equation. Let’s face it. Products like salami and sausage are the perfect complement to wine and cheese.
Why not give them at the same time? This particular gift takes the idea further, including various other snacks and a Give Thanks cutting board.
Cheese & Wine Gift Basket
This Cheese & Wine Gift Basket is a particularly impressive gift choice. It contains a selection of different cheeses, chutneys and savory biscuits, along with a bottle of wine. The entire thing is packed into a sturdy hamper that could be reused time and time again.
Lake Joseph Wine And Cheese Board
This Lake Joseph Wine and Cheese Board isn’t marketed as a gift board, but it has most of the same features. You’re still providing wine and various snacks (2 types of cheese and 2 types of crackers). The gift also contains an unusual serving board that hosts 4 cheese knives. There is the option to add on more goodies, if you want something more comprehensive.
Tillamook Cheese And White Wine Gift Basket
Sometimes good gifts come in small packages, as this Tillamook Cheese and White Wine Gift Basket shows. The box contains just the right amount of items to make a good gift, without going overboard. It’s also a relatively inexpensive gift basket choice. That might be relevant to anyone shopping on a budget.
Wine & Cheese Celebration Gift Basket
This Wine & Cheese Celebration Gift Basket is truly amazing. It comes with 3 individual boxes, all packed full of delicious treats. Stacking and wrapping the boxes makes for an especially enjoyable gift.
The featured items include 3 bottles of Regalo Valley Ranch wine, dried fruits, chocolate-covered pretzels, cheeses, salami and much more.
The Golf Caddy Wine And Cheese Board
The best gifts are often those that offer something a little bit different. This Golf Caddy Wine and Cheese Board does exactly that. The included cutting board is shaped like a golf bag, while the cheese knives all have golf clubs as their handles.
The gift also features everything you would expect, including cheese, crackers and the wine.
Sonoma Harvest Gift Basket
This Sonoma Harvest Gift Basket comes from Sonoma. It features a selection of their products, including 3 types of cheese, jam, mustard and fudge. There is also a cheese board, 2 bottles of wine and some extra snacks in the mix. The whole thing is simply perfect.
Tour Of Sonoma
While there are many cheese and wine baskets out there, this Tour of Sonoma is one of the most impressive.
It doesn’t just contain cheese and wine either. There are many related items included, such as a cutting board, mustard, extra virgin olive oil, dipping oil and even some chocolate. We can’t forget the cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay that are also present
Wine & Cheese Treat
I love how this is called a Wine & Cheese Treat. It’s an accurate description of this small gift, which contains a bottle of wine, smoked sausage, some cheese (gouda or edam) and water crackers. Just be aware that this comes in a gift box. The pictured cutting board isn’t a part of the gift.
Savory Expressions: Gourmet Wine & Cheese Gift Basket
This Savory Expressions Gift Basket follows an attractive gold and green theme. The selection of snacks isn’t limited to cheese either. There is a range of related items included as well, like various crackers, some cheese straws and smoked almonds.
Cabernet Classic Wine And Cheese Gift Basket
There aren’t many items in this Cabernet Classic Wine and Cheese Gift Basket. You’re just looking at a bottle of wine, a package of Sonoma Jack cheese, some crackers and cookies. Even so, the combination of colors makes this an elegant gift. It’s also perfect for situations where you don’t need something too complex.
Kosher Wine And Cheese Board
Why settle for a traditional gift basket when you can have something like this Kosher Wine and Cheese Board? The gift has a greater focus on extra items, including a cheese board and knife set.
You’re not limited to a small number of snacks either. You can customize this gift to add on various extra items. You can even change the type of wine included.
War of 1812 White Wine Crate
This War of 1812 White Wine Crate is a twist on the wine and cheese idea. The gift doesn’t have the same selection of snacks that you normally see. The only food items are grapes and cheese.
Some other interesting items are included too, like a cheese board, cheese tools and a book. You also have the chance to add on other items, if you feel like the crate doesn’t offer enough.
Keep Smiling Gift Basket
This Keep Smiling Gift Basket is a fun choice for cheese lovers. It includes 5 different types of artisan cheese, along with related snacks. There are some other bonuses too, including cheese knives, wine tools, a cheese board and an amusing wine holder.
The Master Entertainer Collection
The Master Entertainer Collection doesn’t look like most other wine and cheese baskets. The biggest difference is the choice of items.
Instead of containing typical snacks, there are many more substantial choices, like a blueberry peach crisp, a ready-to-cook prime rib and green beans. Several kinds of cheese are included in the mix as well, along with a serving tray and some cheese knives.
Cabernet & Cheese Party Gift Basket
With 3 bottles of cabernet sauvignon wine, this gift basket is a red wine lover’s dream. It includes plenty of other tasty items too, including 2 types of cheese, crackers, olives and a nut mix. The whole gift is stored in a fabric-lined basket that could easily be reused.
Wine & Cheese Italian Gift Basket
As the name suggests, this Wine & Cheese Italian Gift Basket focuses on Italian wine. There are also grapes and hard Italian candies, which you don’t normally see in a gift basket. The whole thing is presented well and would be a popular gift choice in many situations.
Hickory Farms Charcuterie & Wine Gift Set
Most gift baskets source their ingredients from many different locations. That’s not the case for this Hickory Farms Gift Set. The featured foods all come from Hickory Farms itself. The selection includes cheese, salami, cranberry pistachio crisps and fig chutney. The addition of a cheese board and a bottle of wine round the gift out nicely.
Foxen Wine + Cheese Gift Box
This Foxen Wine + Cheese Box comes from the Santa Barbara Company. Not only does the gift look good, it also contains different types of snacks than many others. You’re not seeing the snack brands that are commonly featured either.
A similar pattern is true for all of the products from the Santa Barbara Company. Thankfully, the brand does feature some baskets that can be shipped.
Marvelous Merlot Wine & Cheese Gift Basket
This Marvelous Merlot Wine & Cheese Gift Basket lives up to its name (except for the basket part, of course). It offers 2 different kinds of cheese, along with cheese biscuits and some other snacks.
The pictured cheese knife, wine glasses and ice bucket are included as well. The style is much more interesting than a basket that just contains wine and snacks.
Bloomsbury Wine & Cheese Gift Basket
I love how this Bloomsbury Wine & Cheese Gift Basket isn’t just the same old thing. The grapes alone makes the gift stand out, as does the metal fruit basket that the gift comes in. Even the snacks are unusual.
These include 2 boxes of crackers, Fig of the Land Jam, Nude Bee Honey Co. Blueberry Honey and, of course, a Boss Gourmet Cheese Sampler. It’s easy to see how the gift would be a hit.
Cheese Charcuterie And Wine Rustic Gift Basket
It’s easy to see why the word rustic is included in the title for this gift basket. The piece does have an old-fashioned feel to it. It’s another choice that includes some less common snacks and additions, like a jar of Vodka & Garlic Olives.
The gift comes in the dark wooden tray in the image. The color of the tray helps to tie the whole piece together nicely.
Hickory Farms Reserve All The Cellar’s Best Crate
This gift crate from Hickory Farms is an especially good choice for wine and cheese lovers. The main reason is the cheese. The crate has 5 different types of cheese, which is more than most others.
You’re not getting a large number of unrelated snacks either. The only other snacks are the salamis, which are a perfect complement to the cheese and wine.
Beautiful Brie Baker Gift Basket
This Beautiful Brie Baker Gift Basket has a few interesting aspects. One is the colors, which combine well together. Another is the snacks. There are some unusual ones, including various types of dark chocolate.
The most appealing part is the baked brie idea. The gift includes everything you need to make baked brie, including a torch and a blue dish. No other gift basket has those items.
La Rochelle Wine & Cheese Gift Basket
This La Rochelle Wine & Cheese Gift Basket is another one to consider. It uses a different packaging style than normal, while still looking great in the box. This time the gift recipient gets 3 different types of cheese and 3 condiments. Plus the wine, of course.
The gift comes from Yorkville’s. This means that you’re able to make changes or additions to some of the items.
The Ultimate Wine & Cheese Picnic Basket
This is called The Ultimate Wine & Cheese Picnic Basket for a good reason. It contains 12 individual pieces of cheese – a selection that includes plenty of different types. There aren’t many other items included, but that hardly matters. After all, cheese is the main focus here, right?
Italian Wine & Cheese Pairing Gift Basket
I love the combination of items in this Italian Wine & Cheese Pairing Gift Basket. Not only are there plenty of goodies to choose from, but most of them are also Italian. The style means that it would be impressive as a gift. There are even some hard Italian candies in the mix.
If you've had enough of the Italian stuff (is that possible?), you can venture on to our California wine gift baskets.
