Best Australian Christmas Meal Kits

Australia’s Best Christmas Dinner Kits Delivered in 2022

Cooking a Christmas feast is stressful. We’ve all been there.

A few crazy (and expensive) trips shopping for a mountain of ingredients, waking up early to get the turkey in the oven and a military-style operation to make sure everything gets cooked on time.

Invariably, Christmas Day loses its magic by around 10am. Thankfully, there are services that take away most of the Christmas dinner stress.

They’ll deliver everything you need to easily make the perfect Christmas dinner. Here are our favourite Christmas dinner kits across Australia in 2022.

HelloFresh Christmas Box

HelloFresh Christmas Dinner

HelloFresh are my top-rated meal kit, offering a premium service that consistently delivers incredible results. Each year, they put together an awesome Christmas box.

  • Serves: 4-6, 8-10 or 12-14 people
  • Main Course: Lemon & Rosemary Roast Chicken AND Baked Ham
  • Price Range: $199.99 – $439.98
  • Cooking Required: 3 and a half hours prep time the day before and an extra 3-4 hours on Christmas day with one person cooking.
  • Order Until: 11:59PM AEDT 13th December 2022.
  • Delivery Areas: Everywhere in Australia excluding NT

For around $30 per person, you’ll be able to cook up an absolute feast. A starter of Christmas crispbreads including Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese gets your meal off to a winner before serving both Chicken and Ham for the main course.

Close off the day with a Smashed Pavlova and Cheesecake-Topped Brownies. Indulge yourself by adding a Cheese Board for the inevitable evening munchies.

If the HelloFresh Christmas Box has you salivating, you’re in the right place as I can offer an exclusive 10% discount for all Food Box Mate readers. Merry Christmas.

QuiteLike Christmas Dinner Kit

QuiteLike are a totally new meal kit service rapidly expanding across Australia (review coming soon!) and they’re providing a mouthwatering Christmas menu.

I think Quitelike have put together an incredible looking menu at a competitive price point. Whilst I can’t (yet) speak about the quality of their meal kits, I think they’ve got a fantastic proposition.

Starter, Main and Side all delivered with clear cooking instructions and ready in less than 2 hours.

The only thing missing is dessert… although those aren’t exactly hard to find at this time of year.

Dinner Ladies Christmas Menu

Dinner Ladies Christmas Menu

One of the most extensive Christmas menus you’ll ever see, with the ability to pick and choose just the dishes you want. Dinner Ladies provide a service where meals are ready to throw straight in the oven, so provide a perfect time-saving solution.

  • Serves: 4, 6 or 8 people. Order multiple to serve a crowd.

I’ve loved Dinner Ladies meals every time I’ve tried them, so I can confidently say these are dishes you’ll be proud to serve. Don’t sleep on the desserts of Lemon Curd or Fig and Date Pudding. Delicious.

We’ve tried this service a few times so you can check out our Dinner Ladies review.

Marley Spoon Festive Menu

Marley Spoon Festive Meals

Marley Spoon were the Food Box Mate reader’s 2022 winner based on our meal kit industry survey. Known for their amazing variety, there’s no doubt their Christmas meal kit will deliver an amazing experience.

  • Serves: 2 or 4 people
  • Main Course: Lamb Roast with Cranberry Salad, Roast Chicken with Herb Butter & Hasselback Potatoes or Sticky Roast Beetroot Salad

In contrast to the HelloFresh box, Marley Spoon allows you to choose from a wide variety of different dishes to build a Christmas menu that’s perfect for your family.

The dishes are a little less traditional than one might expect, with options like Lamb Roast with Cranberry Salad, or a Sticky Roast Beetroot Salad. For those with a sweet tooth, you can also find Spiced Brownies.

Ordering the Marley Spoon Christmas dinner is as simple as ordering off their standard subscription. If you aren’t already a Marley Spoon customer, that means you can get a huge discount off your Christmas dinner.

Dinnerly Festive Menu

Dinnerly Christmas Dinners

Much like their parent company Marley Spoon, Dinnerly’s festive offering is part of their standard menu which comes in at an incredible discount price. If you’ve already spent too much on presents this Christmas, Dinnerly is a great option.

  • Serves: 2 or 4 people
  • Main Course: Maple Pork Steaks, Lamb Roast or Peach and Haloumi Salad.
  • Price Range: $5.90 – $9.75 per portion of each dish.
  • Cooking Required: 30 – 60 minutes per dish.
  • Order Until: Available w/c 12th December and 19th December. Orders close around 7 days before each week depending on location.
  • Delivery Areas: All across Australia.

I’ve always enjoyed Dinnerly as they tend to stick with simple dishes with limited ingredients. Over Christmas that’s super important as it means less time spent stressing in the kitchen.

There are some interesting options with a Dinnerly Christmas having Maple Pork Steaks, Lamb Roast or Peach and Haloumi Salad. The Lamb Roast also comes with a dessert of Nectarine Cakes that sound delicious.

Maybe the Dinnerly options aren’t for Christmas Day, but they are perfect for the other days around Christmas when you have a slightly smaller gathering. You have the added benefit of their incredible new customer offer as well, which makes Dinnerly unbelievable value.

Delidoor Christmas Dinners

Delidoor Festive Feast

Much like Dinner Ladies, Delidoor will deliver your Christmas feast ready to throw straight into the oven.

  • Serves: Variable
  • Main Course: Confit Pork Belly or Glazed Ham or Stuffed Turkey or Stuffed Butternut Pumpkin.
  • Price Range: Dishes from $24
  • Cooking Required: 10 Minutes to throw dishes in the oven.
  • Order Until: Until STOCK RUNS OUT. Likely by 15th December.
  • Delivery Areas: NSW, VIC, QLD, ACT.

Curate your own Christmas menu that arrives pre-prepared so you just have to throw everything into the oven. The only way this could be easier is by hiring your own chef, though I suspect Delidoor is a whole late cheaper.

Entrée’s include Salmon Gravalax and Confit Pork Belly before some amazing Turkey, Ham and Pork options for your main dish. Top it all off with some Mince Pies, Christmas Pudding or Chocolate Fondant.

This menu is comfortably the most traditional available in Australia and is perfect to serve for larger families.
