Meat and cheese gift baskets are a great food gift to give
during the holidays. They’re perfect appetizers for entertaining, so hosts and hostesses appreciate the thoughtful gift.
You can choose form many brands and variations of the gifts themselves.
The Hickory Farms company is well-known for its delicious summer
sausage, but they have so much more to offer -- and their brand is synonymous with gift giving around the Christmas season.
The company even offers free shipping to the
military -- a very patriotic act by this company! In addition to sausages and cheese blocks, they also sell signature nut
gifts and fresh fruit, too.
Other brands also
have some amazing offers. Check out the Art of Appreciation Gift Basket called Smoked Salmon Seafood Gourmet Gift Box. It
has a fishing themed container, so it would make a great gift for a special man in your life.
It includes salmon fillets, an herb pate, smoked salmon pate, cheese straws, and a
variety of crisp crackers for the recipient. The same company also makes another gift basket that includes salmon, but also
has beef salami, a couple of cheese options, seasoned crackers, cheddar biscuits, and more!
A company called Wisconsinmade makes a tantalizing food gift basket called the Deluxe
Meat and Cheese Gift Box. It includes beef summer sausage and salami, a variety of cheeses in the flavors of tomato basil
cheddar, cranberry cheddar, and roasted garlic. It comes with a cheddar cheese spread and a few mustard options, including
stone ground, sweet and hot, champagne, and honey. A box of wafer rolls completes the gift basket.
The Swiss Colony company is a household name, just like Hickory Farms.
They are known for their sausage and cheese blocks, but there’s one gift box in particular that’s always a hit...
It’s the Swiss Colony Sausages ‘n Cheese Bars, which comes
in 4, 6, or 9-piece options. You can get their 4-piece pack, which includes Kreme Kaese and cheddar cheese, and their original
and summer sausages.
The 6-piece Swiss Colony
gift box includes the previous four items, but you get to add in some Colby cheese and a garlic beef sausage for your gift
recipient. And the 9-piece pack gives you all previous selections, along with a Caraway beef sausage log and Swiss and Edam
Swiss Colony meats and cheeses aren’t
all they have to offer. You can also give the gift of desserts, nuts and snacks, coffee, fruit spread, and even clothing and
homemade gifts. If you happen to know of someone who is on a sugar free diet, then they have a special category for that,
