A cheese basket is a gift that includes a selection of cheeses. Cheese baskets may also include cured meats, crackers, nuts, dried fruits, preserves, dips, and pickled vegetables.
Generally, 4 to 6 cheeses are ideal for a cheese basket. You can include fresh cheese if you're planning to deliver the cheese basket in person. But when shipping meat and cheese gifts, it's best to use cured meats and aged cheeses that don't require as much refrigeration.
