It's that time of year again—the leaves are starting to change colors, temperatures are dropping, and Thanksgiving is right around the corner. If you're interested in doing less this year, we don't blame you! Whether you're hosting your first Thanksgiving or are a seasoned pro, this food-focused holiday requires a lot of work, and that's where meal kits come in handy. This Thanksgiving, some of the best meal kit delivery services we've tested can handle most of the hard work for you.

What to know before you order a Thanksgiving meal kit delivery

You’ll need to create an account with the brand of your choice in order to view and order their Thanksgiving offerings. And in some cases, like with Purple Carrot, you’ll need to be an existing meal plan subscriber. With most meal plans you can cancel at any time, so you’d be able to ditch these deliveries post-holiday—just make sure you remember to cancel!

HelloFresh has two protein options for its Thanksgiving feast: turkey and beef tenderloin.

HelloFresh is one of the best meal kits we've tested, so its stellar Thanksgiving lineup comes as no surprise. If you're feeding a larger crowd around eight to 10 people, go for the box with a Roast Turkey with a Garlic Herb Butter Rub. If you've got a smaller group of between four to six people, opt for the box featuring Peppercorn-Crusted Beef Tenderloin with Sherry Thyme Jus.

The HelloFresh Thanksgiving boxes will ship on select days from Nov. 16th to Nov. 23rd with the option to choose your delivery day, as with every HelloFresh order. If you choose the turkey box, keep in mind that it will take four days to thaw fully before it's ready to cook. And if you're feeling extra festive, select the optional appetizer add-on: Cranberry Brie Crostini.
