West Allis Cheese & SausageLooking for a gift that will be appreciated and enjoyed by the recipient, not stuck in the back of a closet or re-gifted to someone else? How about a gift basket filled with real Wisconsin Cheese? The right basket is sure to show someone or a group how much you value them. Whether it’s one created personally for the occasion or a pre-made gift box, the right one will say: “Happy Holidays”, “Thank You”, “Feel Better Soon”, “Happy Birthday”, “Thinking of You”, “Great Game”, “Miss You”, “Happy Anniversary”, “Welcome to Your New Home”, “Congratulations”, “Happy Father’s / Mother’s Day”, “Or simply I love you!”

Ideas and occasions for gift baskets are limitless. Creating one is simple, but embodies thoughtfulness and generosity.

Pointers for Choosing the Perfect Wisconsin Cheese Gift

If you decide to go the pre-made gift basket or box route, select one that fits the recipient’s personality and includes quality, desirable products. The number one rule for selecting a Wisconsin cheese basket is:

Don’t ever give a gourmet food basket containing a lot of packages that amount to a only handful of food , weird little triangles of unknown stuff, or shelf-stable cheese (cheese food that contains chemical preservatives, artificial colors/flavors, and trans-fats… and lacks flavor!)

Use a reputable cheese company, one that delivers a presentable package of quality, substantially sized real cheese and sausage, ships it safely, and places the customer as its top priority. West Allis Cheese & Sausage Shoppe has been delivering Wisconsin cheese gift baskets for over 40 years and has been selected as Milwaukee’s Best Cheese Shop 4 years in a row (WISN’s A-List)!

If you want to create a personalized gift basket, there are endless possibilities and limited only by your imagination. Start by choosing a theme that would interest the recipient. Fill a basket, bowl, bag, box, helmet, etc. that relates to the theme and fill it with great Wisconsin Cheese and Sausage as well as other small gifts that fit the theme. If the person loves baseball, fill a baseball helmet with cheese, sausage, peanuts, and Cracker Jack. If your mom loves to garden, fill a flower pot with some of her favorite cheeses, crackers, gardening magazine, wine, seeds, and flowers.

For Christmas one year, I wood burned 24 cutting boards using a stencil the kids drew and shrink wrapped a great selection of cheese and sausage to the board. We handed them out to family, friends and teachers. They were very well received!

Have fun coming up with ideas and as always West Allis Cheese & Sausage Shoppe is here to help you out if needed.
