Wine Lover’s Gifting Guide + an Easy DIY Charcuterie Board for Two


Nothing pairs better with wine than a delicious charcuterie board. This quick and easy DIY charcuterie board is perfect for two, but feel free to double up on any item to serve larger crowds.


  • kiwi, sliced
  • strawberries, sliced
  • red grapes
  • mandarin oranges, peeled
  • fig fruit spread
  • smoked beechwood cheddar cubes
  • merlot cheese cubes
  • rosemary-parmesan pimento cheese spread
  • ripened brie
  • raw and unfiltered honey
  • smoked beef sausage
  • water crackers
  • sweet wheat crackers
  • vegetable crackers
  • sea salt and chive crackers
  • poppy pepper crackers
  • sweet pickles
  • butter toffee pecans


  1. Spreads and other items on your board that come from a liquid (like those sweet pickles) are best when served in a small bowl or ramekin. Fill several small vessels first as they will serve as the structure within your board.
  2. Add the meats to the board, ensuring you pre-slice any meats as necessary. 
  3. Arrange your cheeses evenly around the board, and for others, like brie, that do not come pre-cut, place a cheese knife near it for easy access. For other cheeses that come in cube form, drop them in any available spot.
  4. In between your bowls, meats, and cheese, add a handful of crackers and provide a few different options.
  5. Fill in any gaps on the board with your fruit and other remaining items. It’s okay if the items touch each other unless that’s not your thing. 🙂


Before serving, you can also bake your brie for 10 to 12 minutes until it’s soft and gooey. Let it cool for 5 minutes and drizzle raw and unfiltered honey on top.
