We spend so much time searching for the perfect gift every year, but in reality, it’s those family dinners that get engrained into our memories forever. If you plan on hosting this year, or if you want to be an appreciative guest, you can find everything you need for the perfect Christmas meal right at Bed Bath & Beyond.

Preparing the dinner

Crock-Pot® 6-Quart Cook & Carry Slow Cooker

If you’re going to be cooking multiple dishes, you’ll want to have the necessary tools to make the process as simple as possible (without sacrificing flavor). With a slow cooker, you can just toss the ingredients inside and set a timer. It’s important to monitor your cooking for safety measures, but you don’t have to worry about turning or stirring anything. Instead, you can sit back, relax, and have a nice Christmas movie marathon. The Crock-Pot pictured above includes a one year warranty, recipe suggestions, and even a Little Dipper warmer as a bonus gift!

Kuhn Rikon Spill Stopper Large Koch Blume in Red

When you’re frantically cooking so many things at once, you might end up with a few careless mistakes, such as putting in too much oil or water. To prevent yourself from being splattered or having liquid boil over, you can purchase this lid to make your life a bit easier.

Setting the table

Waterford® Crystal Snowflake Wishes Goodwill 3rd Edition Double Old Fashioned Glass in Clear

Something about drinking a beverage from a beautiful glass just makes it seem like it tastes better. This Waterford crystal cup is decorated with intricate snowflakes, which give it that sparkling look. If you’re the type of host who will stop at nothing to make the dinner table look perfect, this piece is a must-have.

Snowflake White Foam Placemat

Want to decorate your table while staying on a budget? You can purchase a solid-colored tablecloth (such as red or green) at Bed Bath & Beyond starting at $5, then add some character with this snowflake placemat for just $3.99! You’ll find that the smallest touches can change the entire look of your table. Your guests won’t be able to resist posting pictures of your work on their social media accounts! #ChristmasDinnerForTheWin

Cleaning up

Hoover® Platinum Collection™ Professional Strength Instant Stain Remover

During Christmas, the last thing you want to think about is cleanup–you just want to spend your time with loved ones. Unfortunately, messes are bound to happen, regardless of how much you prepare for the occasion. With all of that dirt coming in from everyone’s shoes, and tons of different colorful food options, you can give yourself a heart attack just thinking about it. But, remember: worrying never gets anyone anywhere. Instead, be productive by purchasing professional-strength stain remover. All you’ll have to do is spray and dab and the stain, and the catastrophe will be averted within minutes.

FoodSaver® V3240 Vacuum Sealing System

If you do Christmas dinner right, you’re going to have guests who are absolutely stuffed after the meal, yet still have tons of leftovers for everyone. Rather than taking up room in your refrigerator with clunky containers that won’t keep the food fresh, consider getting a vacuum-sealing device. It’s an easier (and less expensive) method for sending home food with guests, and you can rest assured that your meals can stay fresh well into the new year!
