From complicated Zoom setups to smaller gatherings, Thanksgiving dinner will look different for many families and friends this year.

It doesn't help that food prices are on the rise.

In that spirit, major grocers and food brands are getting creative with unique deals aimed at families and first-time cooks.

A dozen items are in the deal, including a Butterball turkey, sweet potatoes, bagged stuffing and pumpkin pie ingredients.

"In a time when food costs are rising and the economy and markets are shifting, Aldi reaffirms its commitment to offering shoppers the lowest possible prices on groceries," the company said in a press release.

Campbell's notes that with some people hosting Thanksgiving for the first time, "many are nervous they may experience a mishap with their beloved traditional dishes," the company said in a statement.

The "Dinner Insurance" program lets failed cooks submit a claim and, if approved, an Instacart delivery person will send over a prepared dish.

You can get a whole Thanksgiving meal for free with Walmart (WMT), which partnered with savings app Ibotta to let shoppers get 100% cash back on nine items that can feed up to five people.

Included is Walmart's line of side dishes, a 2-liter bottle of Coca-Cola and a Butterball turkey.

Ibotta said that it hopes this deal eliminates "some of the financial anxiety we know they're feeling more than ever this time of year. "

Whole Foods is partnering with Progressive in offering a special type of "insurance" just in case the turkey turns out terribly.

To be eligible, customers must purchase a Whole Foods-branded turkey from the store from now through November 22.

For those more confident in their cooking abilities, the Amazon-owned grocer is once again offering deals on uncooked turkeys.
