Whether you're busy, bed ridden, or just plain lazy, it's a dream to live in a city where everything from premium Napa Valley wine to gorgeous flower bouquets can be delivered to your door step same day. That's why we rounded up the best white glove apps around town. Because why would you do it yourself when there's an app for that?
The miracle that is Naked Wines is pretty close to turning water into vino, and involves less energy. Before 10 am on a weekday morning, I chatted with a Naked Wines curator about what varietals I enjoy the most and by 5 pm that day a box of 12 different Napa and Sonoma county wines was sitting at my desk. Voilà! Choose from pre-curated boxes or make your own 6 or 12-pack of vino on the site. Plus, if you don't like what they packed, you get your money back! Download the app.
In an office full of girls, flower deliveries are a fairly common occurence, and there's nothing better than a bright bouquet of yellow tulips (or whatever flower is in season right now) sitting on your desk during the week. That's where Bloom That comes in. The best part? They deliver in under 90 minutes from the time you click send, and can head to the East and South Bay too! Download the app.
There's no reason you can't have a great meal at home on a weeknight. Munchery's freshly prepared meals are designed to be quickly reheated so you can enjoy a piping hot meal in just a few minutes— instant gratification! Plus they come with a crisp salad and a guilt-free dessert. And for every meal you order, they donate one to someone in need.
I do not exaggerate when I say that there are tons of Google Shopping Express bags littered around the 7x7 HQ. We're obsessed. And how can you not be when you can get everything from toothpaste to hiking boots delivered to you via Google car? Purchase today and you'll get six months of free same-day delivery. Swoon.
Why no one invented Shyp sooner is beyond me. In an age where the majority of people do their shopping online, it makes perfect sense that you also need an app to return all those packages you maybe shouldn't have purchased on a whim. Cue Shyp. Just snap a photo of the item, enter its destination, and request a pickup— Shyp takes care of the rest and you don't even need to repackage it. Download the app.

Starving? Caviar is here to rescue you from your hunger with incredible speed. I ordered a sando from Wise Sons at 11:45 am last week and at 12:15 pm I was eating it at my desk. The premise: Order a dish from one of the City's best restaurants, and Caviar will place your order, pick it up, and deliver it to you in the time range you specified.
