Tomorrow is National Cheese Lover’s Day!

Tomorrow is National Cheese Lover’s Day!

Do you love cheese or know a cheese lover? Well get ready, because tomorrow is National Cheese Lover’s Day! I know what you’re thinking… “Not another holiday! We just finished up with all the big ones.” No need to worry, National Cheese Lover’s Day is an easy one, just eat some good cheese, share some with a friend, or send your favorite cheese lover a tasty cheese gift. Now don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with the occasional boxed mac and cheese dinner, but since this is a national holiday, don’t be afraid to get a little fancy. There’s no need to dive in and get the smelliest cheese you can find, unless of course that is your thing, but trying new cheeses can be a lot of fun! I recently picked up a smoked aged cheddar and some smoked gouda which were both delicious!   Here at GiftTree, we’re very lucky to live in close proximity to some awesome cheese makers and cheesemongers. Tillamook Dairy is a scenic 90 minute drive from GiftTree HQ on the lovely Oregon coast. They even offer tours of their cheese factory! Just a few hours north in Seattle, located in the historic Pike Place Market, Beecher’s Handmade Cheese has a location featuring a cheese counter, café and glass-walled cheese making kitchens. Last but not least, we’re also very lucky to have Murray’s cheese as a partner! Murray’s curated three gifts of amazing cheese, that reflect the unique character of some of the most respected cheese making regions in Europe.   Here is a selection of some of our new and best selling...
