Target Offers A $25 Christmas Meal Kit For Last-Minute Shoppers

This affordable four-person meal bundle is geared toward small gatherings.

If you're in a time crunch and on a budget, Target has a Christmas dinner bundle for that. For $25, you can feed a table of four, and for anyone hosting a small or last-minute gathering for Christmas dinner, $6.25 per person isn't too shabby.

Target is making this bundle available up until Christmas day, which means that if you're out there shopping on Christmas Eve, you won't need to scramble around the grocery store to find what you need. You can also order curbside pickup service, which means you don't have to haul heavy groceries around either.

What you get with Target’s $25 holiday meal bundle

Target's holiday meal bundle features a bone-in ham (the best kind of ham), and some easy-to-prep ingredients for sides. Here's everything you get with the kit:

  • Good & Gather frozen gold and white corn blend
  • Good & Gather russet potatoes
  • Favorite Day demi French bread
  • Del Monte cut green beans
  • Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup
  • Market Pantry hickory smoked spiral-cut bone-in ham (6 lbs.)
  • Favorite Day peppermint sandwich cookies
  • (The price and brands of items may vary slightly by location, and the 6-lb. ham is an approximate weight.)


    Sure, it's not a super intricate meal. It's a pretty sturdy base of ham, corn, potatoes, bread, green bean casserole, and cookies—but the trade-off for opulence is convenience, which many shoppers are looking for this time of year. And since there are so many heat-and-eat options available, you can easily tack on extra sides and sweets if you want a few more things without much extra work. (Or you could simply ask your guests to bring extra stuff. After all, you're hosting.)

    If your original dinner plans get screwed up by a misbehaving dog or you just don't want to bother dealing with too many logistics, you can pick up the bundle on Christmas day, after presents are unwrapped. At the peak of a season when it feels like everything else can be stressful and expensive, at least there's one Christmas dinner that doesn't threaten to break the bank.
