Having made and used both face grain boards, and end grain I can say there isn’t really a huge difference in how they wear, cut, or effect the knives being used on them. Some write that it’s a huge difference. All I can say is I cook every day, usually at least 2 meals, so I’ve had ample time to try to see this difference, and can’t say I have.

If possible ask the recipient if they have a preference. Making long grain boards it’s much easier to add curved inlays, and if you want stripes it makes the most sense. If you want patterned then end grain are the ticket.

Now if any chopping is expected then I’m going to suggest only end grain.
