Christmas hampers that are a feast for cheese connoisseurs

We know that people who love cheese take it rather seriously, so our experts have hand-selected only cheeses from the very best creameries for our cheese hampers, meaning they’re guaranteed to make a statement. Our ever-popular Cheese & Crackers hamper is a winning combination of fabulous cheeses from Barber’s Farmhouse, Cropwell Bishop and Ford Farm – including Wensleydale with cranberries, a Christmas classic! – plus savoury biscuits, a gorgeous caramelised red onion chutney and moreish marinated olives to create the most irresistible Christmas cheeseboard.
But what pairs best of all with cheese is an excellent wine, so with the advice of our Master of Wine, we have also carefully curated a stunning choice of Christmas wine and cheese hampers that will really impress a cheese lover.

Those with a love for blue cheese would be delighted to receive our Classic Port & Stilton gift box, with a generously sized wedge of Cropwell Bishop Blue Stilton to devour with a bottle of Graham’s Fine Ruby Port; just the thing for rounding off a delicious Christmas dinner. Or for those with continental tastes, our Baked Brie & Bordeaux box has everything needed to create the perfect baked brie at home, including a ceramic brie baker which makes this a cheese gift that can be enjoyed for many Christmases to come!
However, one cheese sometimes just isn’t enough for the most dedicated cheese lovers! You can spoil them with The Cheese Lover gift hamper, which comes complete with a feast of four irresistible cheeses that are perfectly complemented with a bottle of Chilean Merlot, and not forgetting a box of cheddar biscuits and a cheeseboard chutney.

For cheese connoisseurs with the most discerning tastes, our elegant Artisan Cheese Selection is a celebration of fine British cheeses, with four varieties to choose from including creamy Bath Soft Cheese and tangy Dorset Blue Vinny. Accompanied by a box of multi seed and oat crackers and a bottle of rich Bordeaux red wine, all presented on a rustic wooden cheeseboard, this Christmas cheese and biscuits hamper really has all the makings of a cosy night in and is ready for the very lucky recipient to tuck into right away.
