Father’s Day is coming up (and fast!) and as much as we love our dads (and we do!), they are notoriously hard to shop for. But if you’re sick of the same old bottles of whisky or boring ties, why not try something they’re sure to love – cheese (oh, and coffee and wine!).
At Cheese Therapy we’ve got you covered. We’ve pulled together the ultimate items to create some of the best Father’s Day gifts for the cheese-loving dad in your life.
The Best Father’s Day Gifts for the Cheese-Loving Dad in Your Life
With several oozingly delicious Father’s Day gift boxes to choose from, you’re spoiled for choice. You just have the hard part of picking which gift to get him!
Father’s Day All Australian Pack
In the Father’s Day All Australian Pack our expert cheesemonger selected the four cheeses that he would love to receive the most from his own kids. Following our winning formula of one hard (or semi-hard), one soft, one stinky and one blue, we start with the Fermier from L’Artisan.
Fermier translates to ‘farmhouse’ and this cheese is the essence of hand-made love. Imbued with a layer of ash in the process called Morbier, it is a true heritage cow’s milk cheese that dad will love.
After the semi-hard, dad can move onto the soft – a beautiful cow’s milk cheese, perfectly named Black Cow from the Nimbin Valley Dairy. This ashed triple cream brie is so buttery and lemony that dad won’t be surprised to find out it’s made from milk sourced from free-range Fresian and Jersey cows.
The stinky cheese in this pack is the unctuous Brewers Gold by Prom Country. A sensational, golden, complex cheese, Brewers Gold has been washed daily in a moody dark ale, a process that is sure to leave dad wanting more.
Finally, the blue! The Charlton by Berry’s Creek is an incredible and unique combination of white buffalo curd and yellow cow’s milk curd that makes this cheese totally distinctive. With its smooth, velvety texture and blue veins, it’s like a delicious piece of art.
Father’s Day World Pack
If your dad is more of an international gourmand, the Father’s Day World Pack might be the perfect gift. In this pack you get our top four international cheeses, including a hard, soft, stinky and blue.
Start with beautiful shards of Vintage Clothbound Farmhouse Cheddar from English Cheesemakers, Quicke’s. Made in the traditional way, this cheddar is matured under cloth for at least 18 months which allows it to breathe as it develops the creaminess, crumble and bite that will renew your love of cheddar.
Then move onto Laurus, the unique buffalo milk camembert that is bloomy, soft and elegant, created by iconic South Australian cheesemaker, Kris Lloyd. Will Studd’s Vacherin Le Duc rounds out the offering with his earthy, foresty stinky cheese. Available only seasonally you’ll want to jump on this before dad (and you!) miss out.
Finally, dad’s box is finished with the beautiful French blue, St Agur. Created by Bongrain, this blue is smooth, creamy and leaves a tang on your tongue dad’s not likely to forget.

Father’s Day Grazing Box
The Father’s Day Grazing Box is the perfect addition to the gift of cheese, complementing and enhancing it, and just making it that much more enjoyable. The Grazing Box contains:
- Fleur Lavosh by Silver Tongue, a delicious sourdough cracker, by Silver Tongue Foods
- Handmade Marinated Baby Figs by Far Meadows Lodge
- Raspberry & Chilli Dark Chocolate made by Kokopod right here on the Sunshine Coast
- Deliciously sweet and stinky Quince Paste and Pear & Pink Pepper Paste by Ugly Duck Fine Foods
Give your dad the best of both worlds!
And Then There’s Wine!
If dad loves a cheeky glass of wine with his cheese, then the best Father’s Day gifts have to be one of our specially selected Father’s Day wine, cheese and grazing hampers. A Father’s day pressie that also gives the gift of locally sourced, delicious wine? What could be better than that?
And we’ve got some of the best local wines going. You won’t find these at your neighbourhood bottle-o, and each bottle has been curated to match with our beautiful cheeses. Think Bronze Medal Winner, 2018 Zip Line Shiraz, with its dense rose petal perfume, plum quince fruits and a hint of vanilla. Or the Silver Medal Winner, 2020 Tru-Su Rosé, the perfect pairing with a cheeseboard with its zingy snap of acid and dash of red berry fruit sweetness.
Gift one of our Father’s Day World Cheese with Wine & Grazing Hamper and our Father’s Day Australian Cheese with Wine & Grazing Hamper and it’ll be literally everything dad could want.
But First, Coffee!
If your dad’s like any of the rest of us, coffee is one of the first things on his mind every day. And we believe the best Father’s Day gifts start with something that dad can use straight away – that’s why we love our wine, cheese and coffee hampers for Father’s Day!
What could be better than starting dad’s special morning with locally sourced, Australian grown and produced coffee! Our Father’s Day Australian Cheese with Wine & Coffee Hamper is chock full of goodies… and Skybury Microlot Peaberry Catuai Coffee!
Skybury’s peaberry is a rare coffee bean grown on the high Atherton Tablelands in Queensland. The sandy soils and subtropical climate provide the perfect growing conditions for coffee, and once roasted to perfection you get a bean with a more concentrated flavour, aroma and a distinct acidity.
Or try our Father’s Day World Cheese with Wine & Coffee Hamper. In this delicious box you’ll get our Globetrotter Pack with four of world's best artisan cheesemakers, Brockenchack's stunning Sparkling Shiraz and, of course, Skybury Coffees' House Blend whole beans.
Skybury’s House Blend is one of our favourites, and it’s sure to be dad’s as well. And with its smooth, easy-drinking, well-rounded flavour, it’s also wonderful paired with a wide-range of cheeses! It’s the perfect hamper to spoil dad!
If your dad isn’t into all the fancy schmancy bits and bobs, grab him an old-school whole wheel instead. There’s something festive and indulgent (even for the toughest of dads) about slicing into an entire wheel of cheese that makes it one of the best Father’s day gifts.
Our Triple Cream 1.4kg Tarago River Wheel is enough to spoil dad, and feed a crowd. And it certainly is delicious. With a soft, creaminess that simply melts into the mouth, we recommend eating this smeared on fresh, crusty bread at room temperature for maximum oozing goodness!
Free Shipping and Easy Ordering and Delivery
And don’t forget… we offer free shipping on every order over $130 anywhere in Australia. Plus you’ll receive text messages letting you know when your gift is dispatched, on its way and been received. Easy (and you don’t even have to leave home)!
We’ve got everything you need for the best Father’s Day gifts. Let dad know you love him – with cheese!
