Thanksgiving should be stress-free!
I can’t believe Thanksgiving is right around the corner again! If you want the key to a stress-free turkey day (and I think we’ve all had enough stress for one year), then follow my lead as I help you plan the perfect, most stress-free holiday you’ve experienced yet!
To help you get set, we’re sharing these FREE Thanksgiving printables to guide you from planning and preparation to your very last bite.
I’ve broken down the perfect Thanksgiving day into three FREE printable sheets as a fun and helpful Gobble Guide! This will help to get you organized in advance so you can pull off an incredible gathering to enjoy with your loved ones this year.
The key is to plan ahead and stay organized, so let’s start planning now so things will run smoothly the day of Thanksgiving. You’ll be so glad you followed these tips so you can actually be able to relax & enjoy your meal and your family time this year! 😋
Use this FREE printable as a plan to write out what you’re serving for your Thanksgiving menu. My printable even has plenty of space to write your entire grocery list! From sides to the main course, there’s a section for everything so nothing will be forgotten this year!
Hip Tip: Eating keto?! We have a keto Thanksgiving meal plan on our sister site Hip2Keto.com, including a printable grocery list!
Use this FREE printable as a checklist to prep ahead on tasks to make sure you’re on track as Thanksgiving approaches. It’ll let you know how soon to thaw the turkey and I even included tips on what can be made in advance. Some dishes can even be done as many as 5 days in advance so make sure you print this one ASAP!
Use this FREE printable to know how much food you’ll need for each dish your serving this year. This cheat sheet can help you plan accordingly for families and Thanksgiving celebrations of all sizes!
I’ve hosted multiple Thanksgiving celebrations, so here’s some additional advice I have to offer:
Get help from others.
Try to assign a few of the menu items to other family members or guests that will be joining you this Thanksgiving. Doing this will make things less overwhelming when you have fewer dishes to make.
Utilize your other appliances.
Oven space can be an issue come Thanksgiving Day, so with that said, make sure you’re using your other small appliances to help. You could use a slow cooker for warming mashed potatoes, a toaster oven for heating casseroles, and so on.
Air fryers are fabulous too – check out Sara’s review on the Ninja Foodi Indoor Grill and make sure to check out our full lineup of air fryer recipes to try something new this year. Plus, watch the stores for their annual Black Friday air fryer sales, so if you don’t already have one, you can score a great deal on a new air fryer!
Buy premade goods where it counts.
There’s no shame in using meal shortcuts like frozen pie dough, store-bought stuffing mix, pre-made pies, etc. In fact, we often use frozen Rhodes dinner rolls and bread as they are so yummy and actually taste homemade! No matter what others are doing, do what works for you and your family – even if that means keeping things as simple as possible!
Hip Tip: Want to get literally everything pre-made this Thanksgiving? These places often offer entire Thanksgiving meals for pickup or delivery!
Thanksgiving is a day to be thankful, stuff your bellies full of good food, and enjoy the holiday with loved ones. Don’t forget to be in the moment, stay unplugged, and try not to stress over everything being super perfect. It’s the memories your kids will remember most! ❤️
Happy Thanksgiving, Hip2Savers!
