Half the fun of ordering something online is tracking the package as it makes its way to you. But, sometimes, you just need something fast — really fast, in an hour or less. We’ve rounded up six companies that offer one-hour delivery in New York, and some of the most fun, practical, and extravagant items you can order from each.
Everlane NYC Now
If your zip code in New York is one that Everlane services (select it from the drop-down menu), your item will be delivered within an hour for $5. Buy two or more things and the shipping fee is waived.
For when you need to get out of town. Fast.
A blazer for when you get invited to a last-minute lunch at La Grenouille.
For $10 a month, you can be a Postmates Plus member, which entitles you to flat shipping fees of $3 or $4. If you’re not a member, the shipping fee will depend on distance traveled. Each delivery will also include a 9 percent service charge.
There is something kind of extravagant about having an item delivered to you so quickly. Why not go really extravagant with truffle mashed potatoes from Bergdorf Goodman?
You can never have enough lotion in the dry winter months, and we like Kiehl’s cult classic Crème de Corps. This — or the Energizing Radiance Masque — would make for a perfect last-minute gift.
Place a minimum order of $20 and FoodKick will deliver to select addresses in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens (check on site) for a fee of $6.
When something calls for celebration, stat! FoodKick has plenty of prosecco and Champagne choices, from a cheap bottle of Mionetto to a (much pricier) bottle of Cristal.
Salted Caramel Apple is Four & Twenty Blackbirds’ most popular pie — imagine how much more you’ll enjoy it when it’s brought to you exactly when you’re craving a slice.
FoodKick’s “Drugstore” department has a slew of highly-giftable little tokens (if it’s a co-worker’s birthday, for instance, or you need a last-minute hostess gift), like this Marimekko notebook, magnolia branches, Acme smoked salmon, or fancy charcoal hand lotion.
Amazon Prime Now
Prime Now is an $8 one-hour shipping service (or free for two-hour delivery) for Prime members who pay $11 a month or $99 a year.
You accidentally invited a friend you ran into on your lunch break to your house for dinner. Order pizza, and get some fancy cheese, meat, and olives from Eataly to nibble on.
If you need to print an important document (a lease, a boarding pass, a W2 form), and Staples is closed…
For times when you’re expecting last-minute guests and need a last-minute hand vacuum to clean before they arrive.
Badminton, anyone? Be prepared for your next pick-up game at the park, or the beach, with this all-inclusive set.
