This Thanksgiving will look a lot different than the celebrations you've known and loved (or suffered through) in years past. You may not be able to get to where you usually go. You may not be surrounded by all the same family and friends that drive you just crazy enough for it to feel like the holidays. But the one thing you can always count on for comfort, regardless of the place or the company, is having immense amounts of good food.

Even if your usual chef isn’t present and nobody around you has a clue how to mash a potato, all of that Thanksgiving food—which is honestly what we’re most thankful for every year—is just a click away. Stuffing your face is really what Thanksgiving is all about, and we want to help make that happen, regardless of the circumstances. Here are some options for getting an entire feast delivered to your front door, and others if you think you can handle everything except the bird. Make sure to order well ahead of time, then just pop in the oven on Turkey Day and dig in.

Burgers' Smokehouse

You can’t go wrong with this top-rated turkey. It comes pre-cooked, so all you have to do is thaw, unwrap, and heat up. If you’re handling the full meal, don’t sweat it. You can order sides like sweet potato casserole and desserts like Southern pecan pie from the smokehouse as well.

Order From $73, smokehouse.com

Harry & David

Harry & David is so much more than its famous Moose Munch. This feast includes a whole turkey, traditional sides like apple sausage stuffing and creamy Brussels sprouts, finishing touches of cranberry sauce and gravy, and a pumpkin cheesecake for dessert.

Order From $215, harryanddavid.com

The Honey Baked Ham Company

If your family prefers ham over turkey, the Honey Baked Ham Company has you covered. The premium pork, slowly roasted and topped with a sweet and crunchy glaze, is ready to go once it’s thawed and at room temperature, so you don’t even have to heat it up. Not only does Honey Baked offer quarter, half, and whole sizes, it also has several side and dessert selections to round out the meal.

Order From $109, honeybaked.com

Blue Smoke

Blue Smoke gives Thanksgiving the BBQ treatment, with a smoked turkey coated in its rub plus all the fixings. For dessert there's spiced pumpkin, apple crumble, or pecan pie.

Order From $145, bluesmoke.com

Omaha Steaks

Omaha Steaks understands the importance of poultry on Thanksgiving, giving a few turkey options to choose from, but you can also opt for a ham or prime roast dinner. Accompaniments include roasted garlic mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and pumpkin pie.

Order From $60, omahasteaks.com

Williams Sonoma

For a classic meal—turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie—order from Williams Sonoma. Its turkeys are free-range.

Whole Foods + Amazon Prime

Are you a Prime member? Great. Then you can get Whole Foods to deliver all the ingredients you might need, including a turkey, to your door. You still have to do all the prep and cook work, though.

Order Prices vary, primenow.amazon.com

Cajun Turkey Company

All those Cajun seasoning flavors are rubbed into these turkeys before they're fried up; there's a full-heat bird and a less-spicy bird. Make sure you have time to heat for an hour or so before serving.

Order From $99, goldbelly.com

Jive Turkey

Jive Turkey in Brooklyn offers unique turkeys: jerk, garlic roasted, even peach bourbon. Call the store to place a delivery order. Reheating is a cinch, too: The bird is ready to serve after 45 minutes in the oven.

Order From $100, jiveturkey.com

Willie Bird Turkeys

These free-range turkeys from Willie Bird Farm come in a range of options. Choose one that's organic or not, pre-brined or bare, smoked, pre-roasted, or uncooked.

Order From $100, williams-sonoma.com

Schiltz Goose Farm

If a turkey is too tame, switch things up with a brown sugar-brined goose smoked with hickory wood chips from Schiltz. To serve, thaw and heat for an hour—easy.

Order From $106, schiltzfoods.com
