Planning a lovely meal or celebrating a special tradition with your favorite people? Target will help you make every gathering memorable while getting more for your money as you set your Thanksgiving spread and prepare for the season’s holiday hosting.

“Our guests count on Target for exceptional value, trend-forward products and a seamless omnichannel experience - and our Food & Beverage business is a market-leader in all of those areas this holiday season,” says Rick Gomez, executive vice president and chief food and beverage officer, Target. “From incredibly competitive pricing on seasonal staples, to 150 new items across our owned-brand assortment and our partnership with Marks & Spencer, to free same-day order pickup services, our guests can trust Target to find joy without compromise.”

With all kinds of delicious, affordable options to pick from, getting from here to the holidays is simple:

Set the scene

The warm glow of candles, festive linens for the table and elegant dishes provide the backdrop for a day of conversation, laughter and delicious food. Target’s got them all to help you decorate and celebrate the season, from our Threshold Stoneware Pumpkin Jar to hold your seasonal soup to wreaths to deck the dining room. Better yet: These finer touches come at reasonable price points, with options that can fit almost every budget, including many under $25.

Assemble the board

A charcuterie board is a quintessential way to greet guests — and we have you covered with all the essentials. Set up your spread with our signature Good & Gather cured meat, cheeses and crackers, as well as sweet and savory extras like honey to drizzle and olives to pop. Try your hand at an on-trend butter board — or swap in veggies and dips for a fresh mezze platter. It’s easy to impress and stay on budget.

Prepare the main event

A quality bird at a value is key this holiday season and we’re delivering with our Good & Gather premium basted turkeys, priced right at under $1 per pound. And for those needing a meatless main or side for Friendsgiving, we’ll get you started with recipe ideas and inspiration that will leave all your guests satisfied.

Stand out with sides

While some come for the turkey, others are thankful for the sides. Make them return for seconds with seasonal twists to familiar favorites, like our Good & Gather Autumn Spiced Chopped Caesar Salad Kit. And a gourmet touch is in reach without extra work thanks to options packaged to heat and eat, such as Good & Gather Maple Bourbon Mini Sweet Potatoes in a microwave-and-steam serving tray. Want to lean into the classics? Target offers all the essentials to whip up table staples like stuffing, green bean casserole and mashed potatoes, all for under $5.

Make room for drinks and dessert

There’s no need to skimp on the sweets table this year. Freshly baked Favorite Day cupcakes and cookies offer a quick and easy treat, while home bakers can whip up an amazing pie with value-priced ingredients such as Good & Gather 100% Pure Canned Pumpkin, sweeteners and spices.

Essential to any holiday gathering is a well-stocked beverage bar, including wine, beer and spirits, as well as nonalcoholic options. Let guests add a sweet seasonal touch to coffee and hot cocoa with gingerbread or peppermint Favorite Day Whipped Dairy Toppings. Or they can make a plant-based play with options like Good & Gather Peppermint Mocha oatmilk coffee creamer.

Bring it all home

What’s just as good as a delicious, affordable feast? Stress-free shopping and prep that leaves more time to celebrate with your guests. Turn to Target’s same-day shopping options, from free Order Pickup and Drive Up to Same Day Delivery with Shipt, for fast, effortless ways to grab all your Thanksgiving and hosting must-haves all season long.
