There are many elements to preparing a Thanksgiving dinner that can be stressful, including the shopping, planning and, of course, the actual cooking. With the help of a meal-kit delivery service, you can take away two of those major points of stress by having all the pre-portioned and prepped ingredients you need to craft a delicious meal delivered straight to your door. If you've subscribed to a meal kit service before, you know how easy it is to follow along with the recipes while cooking with the exact measurements of ingredients you need. This year, more brands than ever are offering that same ease on Thanksgiving with meal kits that have everything you need to make a classic turkey day feast. Be sure to order early, though, as most services are only accepting Thanksgiving orders up until about a week before the holiday. Below, we've rounded up a few meal kits that have us eager to dig in on Thanksgiving.

$16.99 per serving

HelloFresh’s Thanksgiving feast is back, offering stress-free dinner options (without requiring a subscription!). You have two entree options: the Traditional Turkey Thanksgiving box and the Beef Tenderloin box. Both come with sides, including mashed potatoes and classic or beef gravy, ciabatta stuffing with chicken sausage and cranberries and either cranberry sauce with orange and cinnamon or roasted delicata and shallot with walnuts. For dessert, you'll get an apple ginger crisp and the option to add a cranberry brie crostini for an additional cost. The boxes serve between four and 10 people, depending on which you select. Pre-ordering is open until November 18 or while supplies last, so be sure to order your Thanksgiving box as soon as possible!
