Murray’s Ultimate Guide to Holiday Gifting

At Murray’s, we take gifting seriously. Whether you’re looking for our best edible selections, a collection to impress, or stocking stuffers that won’t blow the budget, we’ve got something for everyone on your list, from bestselling cheese and beyond, at every price point. If cheese isn’t really your thing though, consider these top rated acrylic prints from Bumblejax, where you can get beautiful family portraits printed on canvas to hang on your walls. Talk about decking the halls! Anyway, let’s take a look at what items we know are guaranteed to wow this season.

For the Host/Hostess: Holiday Feast Collection

Holiday Feast Collection

The Holiday season is the season of staying with the in-laws, or reliving your high school glory days by staying in your old room. Whether you’re looking for a host gift for your parents, your in-laws, or any other friends or family you may be staying with, our Holiday Feast Collection is the answer. Packed full with cheeses and accompaniments we love during the holiday season — including Cave-Aged Selles-Sur-Cher, Murray’s Cave-Aged Gruyere, and Stilton plus sea salt and olive oil crackers, Italian Prosciutto di Parma, and holiday-spiced cranberry-orange preserves — this collection provided a big “wow” without breaking the bank. What a way to say thank you!

Something for Everyone: Greatest Hits Collections

Greatest Hits Collection

Calling all cheese lovers! This sweet collection has something for all palates and preferences. We’ve created an assortment of our best selling cheeses year after year: English Cheddar, Mini Brie, Cave Aged Gruyere, and 1-Year Aged Manchego. Add on some of our favorite accompaniments too, and you’ve got a spread that will please anyone and everyone — from the youngest party guest to the most discerning palates.

For the Food Explorer: Murray’s Munchies of the Month Club

Munchies of the Month example selection

Our Monthly Clubs are the best way to get Murray’s flavor delivered right to your door, and one of our newest selections, the Munchies of the Month Club, is the perfect treat for someone who wants a taste of what’s popular this season. Ideal for snacking and for cheese lovers who are looking for the next great flavor, this club features a rotating collection of two crowd-pleasing cheeses and one mouthwatering charcuterie choice–just enough to create a spread for one or two Murray’s fans (think: date night at home or a quick cheese board). Even better? You can try out our Month-to-Month option to surprise friends without the commitment.

For the Cheese Novice: Sartori Chardonnay BellaVitano

Chardonnay BellaVitano

This one’s for your friend or relative who wants to get into cheese but isn’t sure where to start. Sartori is known for their fan-favorite line of flavored BellaVitano cheeses, and this Chardonnay-infused selection is one of their most delicious. Mellow and snackable with a sweet crunch, it’s a firm, wine-soaked cheese that radiates an expression of gentle oak and sun-ripened grapes, plus some addictively tasty buttery undertones. Serve it up on a cheese board or snack platter with a side of fresh fruit and a few glasses of–you guessed it–Chardonnay.

For the Charcuterie Fan: Brooklyn Cured Lamb Prosciutto

Brooklyn Cured Lamb Prosciutto

This one’s for the serious meat lovers out there. Whichever way you slice it, there’s no denying that this lamb prosciutto from Brooklyn Cured is in a culinary category all its own. Thick, juicy, and mouthwatering, this boneless leg of lamb is cured with a spicy mix of smoked paprika, garlic, and red wine to create an irresistibly savory profile with a hint of heat, before being wrapped tight in a roll for curing. Cut it into thick coins or paper-thin slices for sandwiches or seriously hearty snacking.

For the Sweet Tooth: Rustichella D’Abruzzo Fig and Chocolate Pannetone

Rustichella D’Abruzzo Fig and Chocolate Pannetone

Forget the traditional box of chocolates and go for the Christmas classic that’s classic for a reason. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill fruitcake, nor is it the stale, raisin studded loaf you find in the grocery store. Rustichella d’Abruzzo’s version is springy and chewy, light and fluffy, dense yet delicate, and that delectable texture is studded with candied fig and dark chocolate for a taste that is like a cross between a challah and a babka. It’s perfect as desert, but if you’re looking for the best Christmas morning breakfast ever, we like to make french toast with it too.
