Thanksgiving Delivered? Here are 5 Lifesaving Thanksgiving Dinner Meal Kits
Every year Thanksgiving seems to sneak up on us. There never seems to be enough time to browse for recipes, write a grocery list, go shopping, and let alone actually spend hours in the kitchen preparing everything.
And sometimes it can be even more difficult to bicker with your family about who’s bringing what and wondering if you’ve covered all the bases—sides, turkey, dessert, and of course options for those with dietary restrictions.
Meal delivery has been a trend for some time now. People everywhere use meal kits to make dinner on busy weeknights a cinch. Perhaps this Thanksgiving your family may have a better time before dinner chatting and following a few simple directions, rather than fighting over the small area of space in front of the oven.
If the idea of having Thanksgiving delivered to your doorstep sounds like an enormous burden off of your shoulders, then check out these five lifesaving Thanksgiving dinner meal kits.
Chef’d and Wolfgang Puck
For some people, the best part of Thanksgiving is the tradition. When relatives start bringing vegan butternut squash mac ‘n cheese, they just can’t handle it. If you’re one of those kinds of people, then you’ll love the Thanksgiving dinner meal kit collaboration between Chef’d and Wolfgang Puck. Everything featured is a more traditional recipe.
Last Thanksgiving, Chef’d offered sides like brown butter mashed potatoes, candied yams, and green beans with crispy shallots. In past years for dessert, you could choose between chocolate pecan pie or Granny Smith apple pie—or have both!
The benefit to this delivery meal kit is that you can pick and choose what you want and skip items you’re not interested in. This means a customized Thanksgiving dinner suited to your family’s wishes—minus the chaos. Get free delivery on any orders over $40 with a Chef’d promo code.
If your family idolizes the Thanksgiving turkey, then Sun Basket may be the Thanksgiving dinner meal kit for you.
Your family can order a box full of healthy-ish sides to make the rest of the meal prep easy, but Sun Basket doesn’t offer a turkey. So you can keep your turkey tradition and have a partially home-cooked meal.
Last year’s offerings included a kale and leek gratin with Gruyere cheese, roasted Brussels sprouts, delicata squash topped with currants and fried shallots, and apple sourdough stuffing with Italian sausage.
The nice thing about Sun Basket is that most of their sides are heavy on the veggies, so you can nosh with a little less guilt. Get $40 off your first meal delivery with one of these Sun Basket discount codes.
Williams Sonoma’s Thanksgiving delivery service is incredibly versatile.

Martha Stewart and Marley Spoon
Be on the lookout for what Martha Stewart has cooking this year. She is known for her cooking expertise, and for creating the perfect holiday table.
Last year Martha Stewart teamed up with Marley Spoon to deliver a 12-to-14 pound free-range turkey, dried cherry and herb stuffing, mashed potatoes, Brussels sprouts with pomegranate seeds, and a cider vinaigrette.
For dessert? A brown butter apple pie. If you’ve got a family of vegetarians, you can purchase a box without the turkey.
The kit comes with a holiday planning booklet and tips for decorating the table. Get $30 off and free shipping on your first order with a Marley Spoon promo code.
In previous years, Blue Apron has offered a Thanksgiving-inspired meal around the holiday. If you are big into massive meals, then this is the best choice for you and your intimate gathering.
Last year, Blue Apron’s Thanksgiving meal included turkey breast with mashed sweet potatoes, kale and cranberry sauce that ran about $10 per person. This is ideal if you only have a few mouths to feed and are looking for something simpler, or if you want a second Thanksgiving meal for your “friendsgiving.”
