Surprise bouquets are a great way to brighten someone’s day or make a holiday extra special. You can schedule these orders well in advance or make the order at the last minute and the receiver will never know. If your local florist is already booked full for Mother's Day and isn't offering delivery right now or your mom lives far away, these online sources can get the flowers they deserve in time. We’ve rounded up the best companies with floral and even potted plant delivery services in the U.S. Take a look at our favorites below and bookmark these companies for birthdays, anniversaries and any other gifting occasions this year.

The Bouqs Company

We’re a big fan of The Bouqs Co. here at HGTV. The arrangements are cheerful, whimsical and, most importantly, ethically sourced. The company sources directly from farms around the world but only partners with eco-friendly farms that “minimize waste, recycle water and use sustainable growing practices.” Depending on your location, The Bouqs Co. select bouquets are available for next-day and even same-day delivery.

Urban Stems

For the most gorgeous, borderline-bridal-magazine level, swoon-worthy flowers, it’s a (bouquet) toss between Urban Stems and Grace Rose Farm, below. Urban Stems curates incredibly trendy designs, colors, florals and foliage, and even has an exclusive line of bouquets designed by fashion powerhouse Vogue. Depending on your location, same-day delivery is available on select arrangements.

Grace Rose Farm

Grace Rose Farm is a family-run farm in California that prides itself on its ethically grown and harvested heirloom garden roses. They specialize in unique colors and varieties of roses, which can be purchased in individual bouquets, as well as weekly and monthly subscriptions. Additionally, Grace Rose Farm sells stunning rose bushes and potted roses, so there's something for every kind of rose-lover. While not all of their roses are available for next-day arrival, 10 stunning options are.

Grace Rose Farm

Farmgirl Flowers

Part of the fun of a gift is the gift wrap — even when it’s mailed in a cardboard box — and Farmgirl Flowers does a great job of presentation. The San Francisco-based company’s signature burlap-wrapped bouquets feature burlap from recycled coffee bags from local roasters near their headquarters and a hand-tied ribbon.

Fresh Sends

Looking for an easy-to-pick bouquet that never disappoints? Look no further than Fresh Sends. The trendy flower delivery service only offers a select variety of flowers and prides itself on sending only the freshest stems each and every time, wrapped in the brand's signature newspaper print, The Fresh Times. For Mother's Day, the brand created The Mother's Day Send, which features The Stem bouquet wrapped in a special edition "The Freshest Mom" newspaper print. It's available in regular (15 to 18 stems) and full-size (24 to 27 stems) options.

Benchmark Bouquets

Did you know that Amazon has floral delivery services? Several Amazon shops are selling fresh-cut floral bouquets and arrangements, and it’s hands down the easiest way to order flowers because it’s all through Amazon, often with free Prime shipping and sometimes Prime overnight shipping, depending on your location. The Amazon store Benchmark Bouquets has several pretty arrangements for less than $50 with Prime shipping. Even better, some of their bouquets benefit the Life Is Good Kids Foundation which helps children heal from early childhood trauma.


Down to the wire? 1-800-Flowers has a whole page just for same-day delivery with tons of options, from Mother's Day and birthday arrangements to chic centerpiece designs. Just in case you forget!


FTD has been in the floral business forever, and they have tons of quality bouquets for less than $50. Plus, they frequently run deals on a dozen roses (colors vary) for $25. And if you do procrastinate, they have a variety of options for same-day delivery based on your location.


ProFlowers, an FTD company, has so many different kinds of bouquets, from tie-dyed roses to a gardenia topiary. Some of their designs are really out there, but if you’re looking for something unique that you can’t find at the grocery store, this is your spot. Plus, they have a large assortment of bouquets eligible for same-day shipping if you order before 2 p.m.

Edible Arrangements

Yes, you can get flowers from Edible Arrangements! The FruitFlowers collection pairs beautiful blooms with indulgent fruit. Food and flowers? Few things are better than that duo! Of course, if you want classic, non-edible flower arrangements, the company sells those, too.

Edible Arrangements

The Sill

If you prefer flowering plants over bouquets, The Sill is the best place to shop for yourself and others. The retailer has an entire section dedicated to flowering houseplants, as well as full pages categorized for trees, plants, faux plants, and orchids. Another highlight of the brand? Each plant is clearly labeled if it's pet-friendly and if it's easy to care for.


You can't talk about potted plant shipments without mentioning Bloomscape. There are so many sizes to shop, from tiny windowsill pots to XL floor planters. And the site makes choosing the best plant to gift a breeze. There are pages for low-maintenance, low-light and pet-friendly plants, but we really love the page just for plants that are said to bring good luck. These make the perfect present for a housewarming, birthday or any other occasion where congratulations are in order.

Venus et Fleur

Venus et Fleur was the first forever flower brand to market in the U.S. and continues to be the preserved rose brand with dozens of rose colors and container materials to choose from. The signature hat boxes start at $44, but there are also collections with elevated materials such as the Parisian-inspired porcelain series. And for Mother's Day, the brand released a variety of forever hydrangea arrangements that make for the perfect springtime centerpiece. Keep in mind: The prices are much higher than a bouquet from the grocery store, but these flowers last much longer. Preserved roses — if properly taken care of — can last one to two years which is a much more sustainable gift. Complimentary shipping is one to six days, however, the company also offers express and overnight delivery.

What Are Forever Roses, And Do They Really Last Forever?

Here’s everything to know about the preserved rose trend, plus where to buy the best ones.

Ode à la Rose

Ode à la Rose is a flower delivery service owned by two French men who were inspired by Paris and passionate about bringing its floral allure to the States. "In France, flowers aren’t just something you send: They tell a story on your behalf. From the variety to the number of stems, from the color choice to the composition, bouquets carry meaning, heart, and passion. Picking the right one is a tall order," the site reads. With this in mind, each Ode à la Rose bouquet is designed with the utmost care to help shoppers lean into Parisian culture while falling head over heels for gorgeous stems. The brand offers same-day delivery in major metropolitan areas and next-day delivery everywhere else.
