A definitive guide to making delicious cheese hampers

Whether it's for a special occasion, a thank-you gift, or simply a token of appreciation, cheese hampers are a timeless way to show someone you care. Because they come in all shapes, sizes, and varieties - these delicious gifts can be tailored to any budget or preference. Here's everything you need to know about how to make the best cheese hamper gift.

Why choose to make cheese hampers as a gift?

Cheese hampers make thoughtful gifts no matter what special occasion calls for them. With careful consideration when selecting types of cheeses and accompaniments such as crackers, jams or chutneys, you are sure to find something suitable no matter what preference or lifestyle choice your recipient may have!

Five steps to making the best cheese hamper gift.

1. Choose the perfect cheese.

When putting together your cheese hamper, you’ll want to consider the recipient’s preferences. Soft cheeses work best when served as part of a meal, while hard cheeses are more suited to snacking on their own. If you don’t know the recipient’s preferences, opt for a selection of both hard and soft cheeses. You can also add some variety with different flavours, textures, and colours of cheese.

2.  Add delicious accompaniments. 

Cheese tastes even better when paired with delicious accompaniments like bread, crackers, chutney, olives, nuts and dried fruit. These items add flavour and texture to the overall experience of eating the gourmet cheese in your hamper. You can pick up these items at most specialty grocery stores or as part of specially curated hampers from stores like here at Hamper Lounge. 

3.  Find a basket. 

The next step is finding an appropriate basket for your gift. You want something that looks nice but also has enough room for all your goodies! Wicker baskets with handles are popular choices for hampers because they look great and are easy to carry around. If you don’t have access to a wicker basket, any container with dividers, such as a picnic basket, should work just fine too.

4. Be creative with your presentation.

Presentation is key when creating the perfect cheese hamper! Make sure your basket looks inviting by arranging all of the contents neatly and adding some decorative touches like ribbons or bows to give it an extra special touch. You can also include some fun extras like wine glasses or corkscrews if you're gifting someone who enjoys pairing their cheese with wine or beer.

5. Add some finishing touches.

Finally, add some finishing touches, such as ribbon or gift tags, to make it extra special! Giving someone a well-curated gift like this shows that you took time and thought into putting it together, making it even more impressive than just buying them any old present from the store shelf!

Everything you need to know about cheese hampers.

What do you put in a cheese hamper?

You can add items like crackers, fruit, nuts, and wine to complement the cheeses and add a touch of elegance to the hamper. You can also use different types of containers, such as wicker baskets or wooden boxes, to create a visually appealing presentation. Finally, make sure to label the cheeses so that your recipients know what they're trying.

Hamper Lounge provides you with an extensive variety of cheeses and elegant packaging options, so you can be sure that your cheese hamper will be impressive.

How long does cheese last in a hamper?

Cheese can be stored in a hamper for a surprisingly long time as long as certain conditions are maintained. The most important factor to remember is to keep your cheese at the correct temperature as this will keep it from overheating or becoming too dry.

Generally speaking, a basic cheese can last around two weeks in an airtight container at temperatures between 2 and 7 degrees Celsius. On the other hand, firmer cheeses like cheddar, parmesan and Swiss have been known to last up to six months when properly refrigerated.

Do you have to keep a cheese hamper in the fridge?

Ideally, yes! Cheese needs to be stored in the refrigerator to maintain freshness, prevent bacterial growth and allow for slow ripening. The ideal conditions for refrigerating most types of cheese would be between 1°C and 3°C. This temperature range means that bacteria won’t grow at an alarming rate but still allows the ageing process to continue slowly, so the taste will develop further over time.

Is it better to buy a cheese hamper?

Absolutely! Cheese hampers offer a great way to explore the world of cheeses. With such an array of different and delicious types in stores, it's hard not to be intrigued by what could lie inside. Our cheese hampers here at Hamper Lounge are filled with an amazing variety of options that you won't find elsewhere and can be enjoyed by everyone.

How do you make your cheese hamper look impressive?

Making your cheese hamper look impressive requires a bit of knowledge of the different types of cheese, presentation skills and some creativity. First and foremost, you should know about the variety of cheeses that are available and how to properly store them once they have been purchased or made. After selecting the items to be placed, be creative with your decorations!
