Hasn't 2020 been stressful enough? Consider this your official permission to outsource the hardest work of Thanksgiving to someone else. With so many companies jumping on board to offer Thanksgiving meal kits, there are options for everyone, especially if you're looking for a few extra sides or veggies to lighten up the meal. Here are 10 places to order your Thanksgiving meal.

Where to Buy an Entire Thanksgiving Meal

Williams Sonoma

Williams Sonoma offers a ton of Thanksgiving options, from a classic meal for four featuring a stuffed turkey breast (for a slightly more manageable main than a whole turkey), to a totally tricked-out meal for 12 with a whole turkey, sides, gravy and desserts. You can even opt for a Southern-style dinner with a deep-fried turkey, cornbread dressing and more. They've truly got it all.

Harry & David

As it turns out, Harry & David does more than just pears. Their Thanksgiving headquarters offer everything from pre-roasted turkeys and hams to individual sides and pies, to full-out packages that have the whole meal ready to heat and eat. We're telling you, they've thought of everything, including a beautiful harvest centerpiece for the table.

Blue Smoke

Thanksgiving may not bring to mind visions of barbecue smoke wafting into the air, but Blue Smoke is ready to prove that any meal can be barbecued, especially Thanksgiving. Their Thanksgiving packages are customizable and include house-smoked turkey breast, tons of sides and the ability to add as many pies as you want.

Blue Apron

Blue Apron's Thanksgiving meal is super adaptable: You can go for the whole meal and order their whole box with turkey breast and sides for up to eight people, or you can mix and match depending on what you want. Like a regular Blue Apron box, you'll get pre-portioned ingredients and easy-to-follow instructions that will make your Thanksgiving a breeze (and give you bragging rights that you made it all from scratch!).

Omaha Steaks

Omaha Steaks makes it super easy to order a precooked Thanksgiving meal that still feels personalized. For $159.99, you get to choose one item from each of five categories. With options like a whole turkey or a spiral-sliced ham for your main dish and the ability to choose between roasted-garlic mashed potatoes or whipped sweet potatoes for your requisite potato item, there are definitely options for everyone here.

Whole Foods

Whole Foods has made the pre-Thanksgiving shopping even easier this year by offering a wide selection of recipes for all types of Thanksgiving celebrations. Once you've selected a recipe you want, add the ingredients to your Prime shopping cart and quickly have everything you need delivered to your home.

Goldbelly

Goldbelly specializes in bringing super-beloved regional specialties to family tables across the country, and it's a great way to add something a little special to your holiday table. Order a salted caramel apple pie from beloved Brooklyn bakery Four & Twenty Blackbirds or get a smoked turkey breast delivered to you from Austin's famous barbecue joint Terry Black's.

Purple Carrot

Trying to accommodate restricted diets, or just trying to incorporate more vegetarian dishes into holiday meals can be challenging. Purple Carrot makes it easy to pull together a plant-based Thanksgiving with their holiday meal kit which serves four people with hasselback butternut squash, ciabatta stuffing, roasted Brussels sprouts and a pear-cranberry crisp.

HelloFresh

There's no denying that turkey isn't always the most inspiring Thanksgiving centerpiece, which is probably why HelloFresh has the option to go for a peppercorn-crusted beef tenderloin, which you can serve alongside their ciabatta stuffing, smoky maple Brussels sprouts and an apple ginger crisp. The recipes, like usual, will be easy to follow and simple to pull off with the help of HelloFresh's illustrated recipe cards.
