There's so much to think about when planning Thanksgiving. There's, of course, the Thanksgiving menu but let's be honest: It's just a turkey dinner if you don't make your table pretty, too. That's why there are so many details to consider for your holiday table settings. You can go all out with pretty themed dinner plates and festive placemats or add a simple but effective touch with a gorgeous centerpiece. But either way, the finishing touch to your whole tablescape will be the napkins.

We know, that can seem like a lot to consider. So if you're overwhelmed by the options, we're here to help by narrowing down the best Thanksgiving napkins you can buy in 2023. If you're into fancier and reusable cloth napkins that you'll have for years, we've got plenty of fun ideas. From pumpkins to plaids to classic turkey designs, you'll find picks for all family sizes from four to a dozen or more. Plus, many of these options have matching Thanksgiving tablecloths you can purchase to be on theme with one click to your cart.

And guess what? We've also got fun paper options, too. We know when you've got a lot of mouths to feed or just can't be bothered with another load of laundry, there's nothing simpler than disposable napkins. No matter what suits your needs best, you'll certainly be thankful in more ways than one once you set your festive table.

We have to admit: We love this set of four cotton napkins so much, we'd use them all season long. These gorgeous floral options are machine washable, so you totally can, too!

For under $25, you can get a set of 12 reusable cotton napkins. The duck weave pattern makes them soft yet durable and adds nice texture to the simple autumnal motif. They would look nice on a modern or more traditional table.

Opting for a classic plaid is an easy choice, especially when it's in such seasonal colors. This set of six is made of 100% cotton, so you can throw them in the wash and use them year after year.

Inspired by traditional folk art, this set of four makes such a gourd-eous option if you have simple stoneware or white porcelain plates. They need to be popped into the gentle cycle to wash, FYI, but we think it's worth it―especially once you see the matching tablecloth.

Your guests will simply gobble up this design! What's more on-theme than a turkey motif? This set of eight polyester napkins is machine washable and has five-star reviews.

If you're all about the country charm, look at this fun print! It comes in a set of 100 (!!) paper napkins so you can absolutely use them all season long, even if you have a ton of people coming over for the holiday.

A colorful paisley is a great alternative if you're kind of over all the foliage and pumpkins. They feel perfectly seasonal, yet different at the same time. These machine washable cotton beauties come in sets of four.

Simple yet stunning, these pretty embroidered picks are handmade. They come in sets of two per saying―thankful, grateful, blessed―so you can mix and match to set your table the way you want.

Setting up some nibbles to go with your Thanksgiving cocktails before the big feast is a great idea for an all-day event. This pack of 50 paper napkins will be perfect for that. They would also work really well for dessert, too!

Worried about pretty white napkins getting dirty? This set of 12 is made of stain-resistant and machine-washable polyester so that solves your problem. Plus, we love that pretty fall foliage.

This set of four napkins is also made of polyester, which by the way, means they won't shrink when you wash them! We love the alternative color palette of this set of four, too. White and blue pumpkins with a muted buffalo plaid still give that festive feel.

No list would be complete without at least one large buffalo plaid check. This orange and white set of four linen napkins gives an instant farmhouse chic feel to your tablescape.

Reusable napkins are great for use year after year, but having to worry about ironing them might feel like such a pain. This four-pack is made of wrinkle-proof polyester, so all you have to do is pop them on the plates.

Talk about heirloom quality! This set of six handmade cotton napkins can be customized with your monogram or a single initial. You can choose between dozens of color options, too. No wonder these have five-star reviews!

There's something so special about a minimalist design! It works really well if that's your overall aesthetic or you want to add a print to an otherwise busy tablescape. This set of four is made of wrinkle-proof polyester.

Who says you need a print or a plaid to be festive? This pack of 12 polyester napkins comes in perfectly seasonal solid colors: four each of yellow, burnt orange, and red. Or you can opt for a pack of six instead.
