I don’t want to brag, but I feel like my friends and I have really gotten the whole wine-and-cheese night thing down to an exact science. We’ve nailed the ratio of hard to soft cheeses—smoky ones to funky ones. We’ve mastered cheese and meat (or cheese and fruit) pairings. And our knowledge of every kind of cracker on offer at Trader Joe’s is almost embarrassingly immense. Now, we just need to stock up on cute cheese boards.
You see, once you master your wine-and-cheese situation, it’s time to elevate things even further—to branch into merch. Wine glasses are an obvious place to start, but most human adults already own them. You could stock up on wine stoppers, which are genuinely useful to own—unless you consistently finish every bottle of wine you open (which…guilty as charged). Or you could buy the thing you probably keep forgetting you need: a cheese board (preferably, a cute AF one).
Have you ever tried to display a charcuterie spread on a regular ol’ plate? It doesn’t work. If you’ve bought more than two cheeses and expect to display them sliced (which you should), you’ll quickly realize there’s no room. Of course, you could put out multiple plates, but put out too many, and you’ll run out of table space.
This issue is easily solved via one simple must-have: a chic cheese board—a tray that’s not only bigger than a regular plate but also flatter than one (so you don’t have to worry about wasted space along the rim). Cheese boards are practical, and they’re often pretty cute, too, meaning you can take your charcuterie platter from low-key photogenic to seriously Instagram-worthy in one simple step.
Once you’ve bought a cheese board, you’ll wonder how you ever hosted a wine and cheese night without one before. And honestly, I can’t really answer that question. Can you?
