The Best Charcuterie Boards for Holiday Hosting

What to Buy & Where to Shop
Best Charcuterie Boards

What would we do without CHEESE? From gruyere to gouda, feta to fontina, my love of the dairy product runs deep. After all, I married a man from the great state of Wisconsin! With the holidays coming up, I wanted to share a round-up of the best charcuterie boards. Additionally, cheese and charcuterie boards are a great way to add a dose of glamour to any holiday hosting gig. Plus, brands are designing unique shapes, sizes, colors, and using various materials to create innovative designs.

Beyond being functional, charcuterie boards are also beautiful décor to display around your kitchen. I keep mine on our countertops at all times!

Best Charcuterie Boards

In the coming weeks, I’m planning to showcase a few ways that I style charcuterie boards – what I buy, items that I love, and how you can create beautiful options that won’t break the bank. Today, it’s all about the best brands for cheese and charcuterie boards, and where to buy them!


First, etúHOME is my go-to brand for charcuterie boards. Specifically, I’m obsessed with their collaboration with interior designer, Caitlin Wilson. The cornflower hue styles match perfectly with our kitchen décor, and I love the feminine look and feel. Additionally, their boards come in other colors, including navy, white, merlot, and even pink. Best of all, my friend Colette is collaborating with them in 2021! I can’t wait to see what her collection looks like!

When Bob and I registered for our wedding, Bloomingdales was our first stop for elegant serving pieces. Yes, most of the items are pretty pricey. However, I highly recommend investing in at least one piece that really makes a statement on your tabletop.

Surprisingly, CB2 has a phenomenal array of cheese boards and charcuterie plates. Sure, CB2 is known for great dinnerware and dining pieces, but I was surprised at how many options they have on their site. While mostly modern, the pieces are unique and interesting. Definitely worth a look!

Over the years, Anthropologie has started to dominate the interiors space. Their serve-wear pieces are gorgeous, and I was really impressed with their stylish stock of cheese knives and charcuterie boards.

Cost Plus World Market

Okay, World Market has a range of affordable boards for holiday hosting. However, this style reminds me very much of Etu Home, but it’s half the price. Keep in mind, they also offer buy online and pick-up in store for a discount.

Mark & Graham

Until recently, I hadn’t really looked into Mark & Graham. Sure, I’d see them pop up on other blogs from time to time, but I never really scrolled through the website. Friends, talk about a game changer. First, start with their personalized pieces. Next, checkout their gift ideas. Last but not least, scroll through their serve wear.
