We should be excited about Thanksgiving, the official kickoff of holiday entertaining! It shouldn’t be a stressful time, but it certainly can be, and there’s a lot of pressure to get it right if you’re the one hosting the grand feast. Sure, recipes can be found everywhere, whether passed down from loved ones or brought up on our phones in one click—but sometimes family and work-life demands don’t always allow the time we need to pull this famous Thursday together. Whether you’re in search of a single turkey, a table full of sides or just one really good pie to end the meal, here are seven 11th-hour ordering options to save the day.
The Honey Baked Ham Co. has been synonymous with the holidays for years. Something important to remember: They offer more just ham! If a traditional turkey meal is what you’re after, you’ll find starters to desserts and everything in between.
Maybe you have the turkey under control. If so, let Home Chef assist with the side dishes. Another big player in the weekly meal-delivery space, Home Chef is offering two new dishes just for the holidays. Bonus: All sides are vegetarian in case any of your guests eschew meat.
With new and exciting chef-driven recipes to choose from weekly, Plated doesn't disappoint for easy haute holiday cuisine either. For Thanksgiving week, let it simplify making stuffing with sausage and squash, or the ever-popular holiday staple, pecan pie—no recipe hunting or grocery shopping required.
If you’re concerned about the star of the show, let Greenberg Smoked Turkey, Inc. take care of it for you. Based in Texas, the Greenberg family has spread its taste of the smoky South nationwide for more than 50 years. If you need shipping beyond the Central states, you’ll want to hurry to place your order.
It’s not all chocolate baskets and candied nuts over at Harry & David. You can choose a Thanksgiving dinner complete with items that can be purchased a la carte. Whatever it is you need, it’s got you covered—and don’t forget to throw in a bag of the ever-popular Moose Munch too!
Worried you might forget something? That won't be a problem with the HelloFresh Thanksgiving Box. This package comes with everything you'll need to put together a holiday feast, including a roast turkey, four sides and an apple-ginger crisp for dessert. Deciding to forgo a turkey this year? Not a problem. You can choose the sides and dessert option instead.
The Martha & Marley Spoon Thanksgiving Box for this year, called the Complete Feast, has everything you need to make your holiday dinner. It comes with a turkey, four sides and a dessert. While you can purchase this without a subscription, you can't procrastinate: It's only available to order until Nov. 14.
Finally, if delivery is not critical to your Thanksgiving timetable and store pickup is an option, consider Whole Foods. Have guests with special diets? Whole Foods offers a vast menu for all, including gluten-free, vegan and dairy-free options and more. Make the meal extra-special and start your cocktail hour with some bubbly and a few oysters from the East Coast; they offer multiple varieties. Or if you have Instacart in your area, get them to do the shopping for you.
