We’ll go out on a limb here and say that almost everyone can appreciate a thoughtful bouquet of blooms — seriously, just ask science. Whether you’re shopping with a certain holiday in mind, or you’ve got a loved one who needs a colorful pick-me-up, the best flower delivery services make it easy to send a thoughtful gift in just a few clicks.
What Are the Best Flower Delivery Services?
Whether you’re particular about planning or you’re a procrastinator, many of the best online floral companies offer same-day flower delivery. Keep in mind that there’s usually a cutoff time, which is usually by 2 or 3 pm on weekdays or noon on weekends in your recipient’s time zone. Don’t forget that the pandemic may delay some shipments and that some holidays fall on a Sunday, so keep that in mind if you want your delivery to arrive on or by a specific date.
If you enjoy supporting your friendly neighborhood floral shop, many of these online flower companies also tap local florists to craft their blossoming creations (so your money is still going to a small business).
Here, we’ve rounded up some of the best ways to send flowers online for Valentine’s Day and beyond, from sustainable options to florals inspired by fashion — check out our top picks below.
1. The Bouqs Co.
The Bouqs offers same- and next-day delivery on its stylish floral arrangements, which come from local florists and are grown by eco-conscious farms that employ sustainable growing practices, reduce waste, and recycle water. One-time bouquets start at $39 (or $36 with monthly subscriptions), and the California-based company offers tried-and-true roses alongside a variety of arrangements with lilies, tulips, and other flowers.
New York-based Florists.com taps local flower shops across the nation to provide its gorgeous bouquets, many of which are available for same-day delivery. Pricing starts at $40, and you can also shop for plants such as bonsai trees and succulents, fruit arrangements, and gift baskets.
Count on FTD to deliver an extensive selection of arrangements for a variety of occasions, plus gourmet sweets and thoughtful gifts to go with your colorful blooms. The popular online floral company’s blooms start at $45 and same-day delivery is also available for select bouquets.
From birthday bouquets and Mother’s Day roses to sympathy arrangements and get well flowers, there’s something for every occasion and holiday at Teleflora, which works with local florists to hand-deliver its blooms. We like how easy it is to shop by recipient and flower color and type, and same-day delivery is available for some flowers. Other offerings include gift baskets, house plants, and succulents in charming containers.
5. The Sill
Maybe your recipient is allergic to flowers, or they prefer a gift that puts their green thumb to use. Online-turned-IRL greenery shop The Sill stocks a variety of shelfie-ready greenery ranging from low-light philodendrons to pet-friendly snake plants, plus minimalist planters that add a stylish finishing touch to your delivery.
Got a stylish flower lover? 1-800Flowers.com has same-day and standard shipping arrangements for birthdays, housewarmings, retirements, congrats, anniversaries, and other festivities.
If you’re still stumped on finding the perfect gift, then you’re bound to find something from one of the company’s other gifting-ready brands, which include Harry & David, Wolferman’s Bakery, Stock Yards, Personalization Mall, and Shari’s Berries, to name a few.
Bohemian-minded giftees will love the rustic arrangements from Terrain (the gardening-focused sister brand of Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters) which also offers live plants, dried stems and bunches, faux florals, vintage-inspired vases, and more. The home goods retailer’s also a great source for gifts such as candles, bath and body products, gift sets, decor, and other finds for lovers of shabby chic design.
ProFlowers is owned by online floral giant FTD, but its curated selection of arrangements means a more streamlined shopping experience for those who get overwhelmed by too many options. It also has a wide range of same-day flower deliveries starting at $50, so they’re a great option if you’re on a time crunch.
Unsurprisingly, the world’s most expensive online shopping mall also has a noteworthy flower department. Amazon Prime members can take advantage of free one- and two-day delivery on select items and free two-hour delivery from local Whole Foods Market locations.
