Everyone knows someone who is obsessed with cheese — and, no, we don’t mean someone who hangs out by the charcuterie board at any party. Chances are, you have a family member, friend or colleague who has multiple varieties in their fridge at all times, can devour a cheese board solo, and can rattle off the differences between manchego and mozzarella in the drop of a hat.

So, what better way to celebrate your favorite cheese lover with an ooey, gooey gift? Turns out, there are more options than a wedge of their favorite varietal. From fondue sets to cheese board accoutrements, and everything in between, these unique presents are just as satisfying as an extra-long cheese pull.
