Is there a Veggie Christmas Box?
Unfortunately, we don’t offer a veggie option in our Christmas Box. However, we will have a veggie roast alternative on the menu for our boxes over the festive period, so make sure you check out our regular menu nearer the time.
When will the Christmas Box be delivered?
The Christmas Box is a one-off order and will be delivered to your chosen address on the 22nd December. Please remember that the cut-off for ordering the Christmas box is the 14th of December, so get your order in quick!
Do I receive a whole turkey or turkey crown in my box?
If you’re ordering a Christmas box for 4-6 people, you’ll get a turkey crown. The Turkey crown weight is between 2kg - 2.75kg. Our larger boxes for 8-10 people contain a whole turkey. The whole turkey weight is between 5kg - 6kg. We’ve done it this way to make sure there’s the right amount of turkey for everyone around the table, while also helping you to reduce food waste.
What addons can I get with my Christmas box?
If you’re ordering the Turkey Christmas Box, you can get the cheeseboard side and dessert for an extra fee, However if you order the Beef Christmas Box you can only get the dessert at an extra fee and no cheese box.

What's the cut off date for ordering a Christmas box?
In the same way as our subscription, we need to have a cut-off point for the ingredients to be ordered from our suppliers. This way we can make sure we only order exactly what we need. As a result, we’ve made the deadline to order or make any amendments to your Christmas box, Thursday, 14th December at 11:59 PM.
How long will my Christmas meal take to prep?
Turkey Box: Total cooking times for 4-6 people are 3-4 hours the night before and 4-5 hours on the day. For 8-10 people you will need 3.5-4.5 hours the night before and 5.5-6 hours on the day. Beef Box: Total cooking times for 4-6 people are 3-4 hours the night before and 3-4 hours on the day. For 8-10 people you will need 3.5-4.5 hours the night before and 3.5-4.5 hours on the day. Don’t worry, you won’t be in the kitchen the whole time as we’ve tried to help you finish the majority of the prep work the day before! Remember, the recipe booklet will be available closer to Christmas for you to get prepared way ahead.
Can I order more than one Christmas Box?
. Yes, you can buy as many as you like, they'll just need to be placed as separate orders. Enjoy!
Can I order a Christmas box if I don't have a HelloFresh subscription?

Do I need to skip my subscription if I order the Christmas Box?

Can I order from my account if I have a HelloFresh subscription?

Will I need to buy any special ingredients?
Everything you need will be delivered pre-portioned for you. Just like our subscription boxes, we make sure you have everything to cook up a delicious Christmas feast. You'll just need some basics like foil, oil, salt, and pepper.
