Just like everything else in 2020, Thanksgiving looks different this year. The annual family reunion is now an epic Zoom, the Friendsgiving guest list has gotten a little cozier, and there's more reason than ever for wanting to skip the crowded grocery stores and long lines altogether. 

Limiting social gatherings and avoiding travel is going to be key this Thanksgiving according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), but it doesn't mean you can't enjoy turkey and all the fixings with those in your household. In fact, you can order an entire feast online through meal delivery kit services like Home Chef and Freshly, curated marketplaces like Goldbelly, and more. The dishes are pre-cooked so all you have to do is reheat it in the oven and serve. 

Here are 9 places where you can buy fully-cooked Thanksgiving dinner online:
