7 Christmas dinner delivery boxes for 2021: the food and recipes you need, including HelloFresh and Riverford Organic


A CHRISTMAS dinner delivery can save you time and effort when preparing festive food.

From Gusto and HelloFresh to Mindful Chef, you have an array of options to choose from.

With Christmas being getting closer and closer, it's time to start thinking about food preparation and all the festivities — especially with some predicting meat shortages.

But it can be exhausting: sourcing ingredients from different shops, thinking about combining flavours, and finally making sure that everything is ready at the same time with no dish getting cold, can take enormous effort.

Luckily, a Christmas dinner delivery can save you time and money by delivering chef-created recipes for your convenience.

These delivery boxes vary in price, size and recipes: so make sure you've got the one that suits your needs the most – and don't forget to leave enough time to cook it.

Each of our chosen boxes contains both recipes and ingredients, so you can create the perfect Christmas dinner, hassle-free.
