Do you smell that? I smell cinnamon and nutmeg and mashed potatoes and pie and cookies and happiness. Okay, maybe not that last one, but the other ones for sure!

We’re coming up on the second to last month of the year. Can you believe that?! I surely can’t.

That being said, this is the perfect opportunity to start promoting your holiday-themed content, and here are a few trends to help get you started:

Thanksgiving

You knew this one was coming, right? Arguably the biggest food holiday of the year makes people crazy for searching for the perfect recipes.

My suggestion to stand out from the crowd this Thanksgiving? Try to reimagine the classics. Create a some vegan Turkey-less Day recipe ideas. Post a few different stuffing ideas. Publish a non-traditional turkey recipe. Focus on healthier Thanksgiving grub. Surprise your readers and give them a new and exciting Thanksgiving favorite.

Turkey & Stuffing

That being said, turkey and stuffing searches are (unsurprisingly) trending in November!

But just how much are they trending? Well, hopefully this will help visualize it for you:

Crazy, right? Those sharp spikes in November should be a clear message that you should publish turkey & stuffing recipes accordingly. If you really want to try and hit it out of the park, try combining the two for an easy, all-in-one dish for your readers’ holiday feasts!

Coffee

Maybe it’s because of the ever-growing PSL craze, but people are crazy for coffee this month!

Try using coffee in a Thanksgiving cocktail. Readers are always looking for warm and cozy coffee-based drinks; try to come up with one that they can enjoy Thanksgiving morning that features the flavors of the season. Or you can try to incorporate coffee into Thanksgiving dinner, like a play on Red Eye Gravy or a chocolate pumpkin pie. It’ll definitely take some creativity on your part, but try incorporating a cup of joe into the holiday craze.

Crockpot Recipes

It’s that time of year, friends. Break out that crockpot! With the weather getting colder and the nights getting darker, searches for crockpot recipes are peaking this month.

This is a great opportunity to combine your readers’ interest in crockpot recipes with their desire to find the perfect Thanksgiving recipes. Crockpot Thanksgiving recipes can take the stress out of timing what goes into the oven and when, and they’re typically on the easier side of cooking. Not only that, crockpot recipes pretty much guarantee that the food cooked in them will be hot when it hits the dinner table.

Cardio/Walking

After all of that grub, it’s no surprise that cardio and walking searches spike this month. In some parts of the country, it’s still warm enough to go on a hike or a walk outside. In others, however, it’s much more enjoyable to stay inside.

Try coming up with creative ways your readers can get their cardio on in the comfort of their own homes. Better yet for food bloggers, come up with seasonal recipes that your readers can use to fuel those cardio-heavy workouts. Think nutrient-dense foods like dried fruit, apples, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin. Giving your readers a delicious way to fuel up might just make them more interested in the workout themselves.
