Cheese: A delicious gift you can give this holiday season

If you’re still struggling with what to give those last few folks on your list, think outside the box and grab some gourmet cheese.  Cheese is the simple surprise that’s guaranteed to delight whoever receives it.

Here are three easy steps for giving the gift of cheese this holiday season:


Wrap it!

Cheese comes in so many shapes and sizes, so add some festive paper and ribbon to cheese types like Tickler, Danish Blue, Brie and more, for a stunning presentation that allows your friends and family to unwrap some holiday cheer.


Package it!

Once your cheese is wrapped, place it in an attractive open basket and roll up some paint-by-number cheeseboard templates that allows anyone to recreate six Pinterest worthy cheeseboards created by Canada’s favourite foodies. You can find all six of them here at  Here’s a sample of one by @viranlly


Present it!

Now for the good part – building the cheeseboard!  You’ve provided your friends and family with the ingredients and tools to recreate a stunning cheeseboard masterpiece, now they can assemble it together for a fun family activity.

All six of Canada’s favourite foodies selected Castello Cheese to build their cheeseboards which is Canada’s number one specialty cheese for a reason – the quality and taste is exceptional!

Spread some Castello Pineapple Cream Cheese on a cracker and watch both the kids and the adults flock!  The six cheese types used in each cheeseboard template, take the work out of guessing which one to choose – so trust the experts and your cheeseboard will be anything but bored!


Happy Holidays!
