Cheese Carvings of Pets Are a Thing This Holiday Season

What do you get the person who has everything? Well, if they have a pet and love cheese, we might have an answer for you.

Whisps is offering pet portraits carved from blocks of cheese this holiday season, and they’re almost too cute to eat. Made of 100% cheddar, the sculptures are fully edible—just tell your recipient not to think too much about how they’re eating their pet’s face.

Of course, they’re custom-made. All you have to do is upload a photo of your loved one’s animal. The cheese statues weigh between 3-4 lbs. and are about seven inches tall. At $200, they definitely won’t suit everyone’s holiday budget. However, giving the gift of 4 lbs. of cheese that looks like your friend’s beloved dog or cat is priceless.

You can also get a custom cheese head of a relative, significant other, or your best friend. Just upload a photo of them, and their face will be turned into a cheese masterpiece. Unfortunately, at this writing, this option is out of stock, but it’s worth keeping your eyes peeled on the site for a restock.

If you or someone you love has an object that’s meaningful to them—like a childhood teddy bear for example—you can also have those turned into cheese carvings!

Again, $200 might be out of your price range, but no worries—there are tons of budget-friendly gifts for the cheese lovers in your life.
