2024 UK Christmas Dinner Cost Calculator

This Christmas dinner cost calculator allows you take the generic Christmas menu on this page and change the menu items or ingredients, their unit cost and quantity, so you can quickly determine exactly how much your specific holiday dinner will cost.  The table is pre-loaded with the typical items and their typical 2024 cost taken from our annual cost of Christmas dinner survey, which also has current costs for items at Tesco and tips on how to save money!  The default below is for 4 to 6 people with good appetites! Our default is a 5 kg turkey, making a meal for 4 to 6 people (with leftovers!), but you can change that and everything else for your own situation.  We put in other alternatives (like beef, gammon or chicken) with zero quantity so you can quickly add or edit them.
