Help me give the gift of cheese! Particularly Spanish, French, or Greek.

This is a holiday gift for my boyfriend's brother and sister-in-law. They're food and wine lovers and excellent cooks, so you think it would be easy, but they're also recently married so they have every possible kitchen or home thing. Why not cheese? They are knowledgeable about cheese (and put together a mean cheese plate). No known allergies. They took a pretty thrilling sounding vacation this year to Spain and France, and also honeymooned recently in Greece, so we'd like to call back to those trips.
We'd like to get them something from a place like Zingerman's or Murray's, but there are a lot of cheese-by-mail options out there! Have you given or received a mind-blowing cheese gift? Which one is the best for a budget of about $100?
Alternately: What are the essentials of a good cheese gift? There are a few fancy cheese stores in our area, but if we're going to put together a cheese gift of our own we'd like to come armed with some ideas.
