You want the latest, cutest, tastiest everything—but who has time for all that shopping?
Problem solved with a new crop of niche home delivery companies. Just enter a credit card and let the good stuff come to you.
For the grill or the crock pot
High-quality meat is a priority, but it can be hard to find. Enter GreensburyMarket.com, which sources 100% organic meats from around the country. Prices are comparable to Whole Foods, and better if you buy in bulk.
For the kids
Kiwi Crate is guaranteed to banish the phrase “Mom, I’m boooored”, for a mere $19.95 a month. Each crate contains materials for several projects around one theme (think dinosaurs or gardens). Ages 3 to 7.
BarkBox is like BirchBox…for dogs. For $17 a month, your pooch will receive a monthly shipment of goodies—shampoos, toys, and treats. Also a neat gift for committed canine parents.
For your soul
Envy the folks who always seem to have hip, tasteful art on their walls? For just $50 per month Art in a Box will send you an original work by a Bay Area artist.
Looking for a delightful delivery but not every month? Consider The Thing Quarterly, “a periodical in the form of an object.” Contributors include Miranda July, Dave Eggers, and James Franco.
