With the holiday season in full swing, I thought I’d share a gift idea that is simple to put together but such a joy to receive: cheese board essentials in a box. This sweet & sophisticated holiday gift idea is a thoughtful one that can be executed at the last minute but won’t seem like it at all. The sweetness comes from honey and the sophistication refers to how your recipient will feel when receiving and using what’s basically a cheese board setup in a box! When I shared this cheese board tutorial, I mentioned that honey pairs perfectly with blue cheese. Well, this honey has real honey comb in the jar, which is also a great complement to any cheese board. Honey comb is edible and often served with cheeses and crackers. Think about giving this gift to your hostess with the mostest friend, the wine lover, the foodie, the teacher, or anyone you want to surprise with something special for the holidays.

Sweet & Sophisticated Holiday Gift Idea Tutorial

What You’ll Need

  • Cheese board (marble if you’re feeling extra fancy)
  • Cheese knife
  • Don Victor® Orange Blossom Comb Honey Globe Jar(get one for yourself, too!)
  • 2 pieces of wired ribbon, each about 4 times the length of the cheese board
  • Gift packaging (additional ribbon, box, gift bag, etc.)


Lay out one piece of ribbon lengthwise then place the cheese board on top and center the jar of Don Victor® Honey on top of the cheeseboard. Tie the cheese board and honey together with a loose knot. Slide the cheese knife through the knot then pull it taut to secure.

Thread the second piece of ribbon between the Don Victor® Honey jar and knot then form a bow.

Fluff out ears of the bow and you’re ready to gift! You can leave this gift as-is or place in a gift box or bag of your choosing.

I chose to use Don Victor® Honey for this tutorial because of the honey comb you can’t find with just any honey brand and the fact that it’s raw, unfiltered, and not processed in any way! That is my favorite kind of honey I like to use and I buy it from Walmart (in the Hispanic Foods Aisle) and highlighted where to look in the photo below.

This is an inexpensive, gourmet gift that can be given at any time of year but I hope it inspires your holiday giving this season. You can find more Don Victor® Honey inspo on their Pinterestor Facebook. Thanks for reading!
