Welcome to your holiday organization headquarters! Discover all of the Martha-designed products that will help you celebrate the season.

Three Weeks Before Thanksgiving

Pack away the Halloween decorations—it's time for turkey and pumpkin pie! Here are the tasks that require the most lead time and should be at the top of your to-do list.

Plan the Menu with Trusted Recipes

From side dishes of seasonal produce to better-for-you desserts, Martha's collection of cookbooks is a trusted resource for easy-to-prepare and crowd-pleasing recipes. You can also turn to the Martha Stewart TV app to stream full episodes of her beloved show right on your phone. You'll find videos for holiday inspiration, trusted recipes, and other advice for the entire festive season.

Put Together Your Shopping List

Brave the crowds at the grocery store with confidence knowing you have an organized shopping list and a clear game plan. Want to upgrade your standard notepad to a detailed planner? Need new must-haves like seasonal dinnerware and serveware? Martha's got it all!

Pull Out Your Cookware & Food Prep Tools

Nonstick cookware and durable cooking tools allow you to spend time enjoying the day, instead of tending to a sink full of dishes. Martha's collection of cookware and kitchen gadgets were expertly designed in our test kitchens to improve cooking efficiency and safety. Her enameled cast iron cookware is perfect for one-pot recipes that help reduce clean up time.

Order Your Holiday Cards

Spread holiday cheer and a little love to everyone on your mailing list when you send beautiful holiday cards from Martha & Mixbook. These cards are fast and easy to create, which means putting together your own custom holiday greetings is so simple.

Two Weeks Before Thanksgiving

Now it's time to start preparing your pantry and space. Planning is key so you're not scrambling around when the special day arrives. Make sure you have enough bed linens (whether your family just wants to make their beds feel extra festive or you are hosting guests) and those important ingredients for the big meal. Additionally, you'll want to make sure you have all of your seasonal décor at the ready for the remainder of the holidays! By the time Thanksgiving comes around, you will be calm and relaxed.

Thanksgiving Day

Put a fork in us, we're done! Relax with family, enjoy the delicious meal you've prepared, and watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!

Chill the Wine in a Pinch

The perfect temperature for white and rosé wines is 45-50˚ F; any cooler and the wines' flavors begin to dull. If you don't have a wine fridge to regulate temperature, Martha Stewart Wine Co. has two chilling methods that take less than an hour. One technique calls for a damp dish towel wrapped around the wine bottle and placed in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. The other is a 40-minute refrigerator-free approach. Mix 1/2 cup of salt with a splash of water inside a gallon-size bucket, place the wine bottle inside, and fill with ice.

Pack Up the Leftovers

What a feast! Divvy up the leftovers for friends and family to enjoy the next day, or store them until round two later in the evening. Leak-proof and airtight seals will keep sauces from spilling and turkey from drying out. Glass food storage containers from the Martha Stewart Collection are freezer and microwave safe as well as BPA-free.
