Without a doubt, Thanksgiving celebrations are going to look a whole lot different this year. Whether you’re hosting a smaller-than-usual gathering and don’t want to go all out, looking to send something to a loved one who you won’t be able to see this year, or simply hoping to avoid setting foot in the grocery store, shopping online is the way to go.

To help you get started, we’ve rounded up some of the best offerings (mains, side dishes, and desserts!) to enjoy on Thanksgiving day, which can be ordered online and picked up in store or shipped to your door.

HelloFresh Thanksgiving Feast

HelloFresh’s Thanksgiving Feast contains everything you need to make a meal that feeds eight to 10 people (which is the absolute max number of people you should be gathering with this year). The Turkey + Sides box includes a roast turkey with a garlic herb butter rub and gravy, sides like mashed potatoes with garlic and sour cream, smoky maple Brussels sprouts, ciabatta stuffing with chicken sausage and cranberries, and cranberry sauce with orange and cinnamon. Don’t forget to save room for dessert: an apple ginger crisp with cinnamon pecan crumble. If you’re hosting a smaller Thanksgiving gathering, you’ll have leftovers for several days to come.
