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 Valentine's Day and isn't offering delivery right now or your sweetheart 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.


Down to the wire? 1-800-Flowers has a whole page just for same-day delivery with tons of options, from birthday arrangements to chic centerpiece designs. Even better: They have a new collection of same-day Valentine's Day bouquets just in case you forget!

Urban Stems

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


Terrain is owned by the same company that owns Anthropologie, and the floral arrangements have the same funky-hip vibe you're used to seeing from Anthropologie's products. Terrain also sells a variety of potted plants, like French staghorn ferns, aloe and fiddle leaf figs, that also make great gifts, especially since the recipient can enjoy them much longer than a bouquet of cut flowers. Several bouquets are eligible for two-day shipping.

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.

Benchmark Bouquets

Did you know that Amazon has floral delivery services? There are several Amazon shops 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.


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

Yup, 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!

The Sill

If you're more of a foliage fan than florals, The Sill is the best place to scoop up potted plants — several under $50! — to gift someone or treat yourself. We love the selection of trendy ferns and palms. And The Sill has even started to dip their toe into the world of flowers with potted orchids and DIY bouquet kits. For a Valentine's Day gift, we love these new ceramic message pops. They look just like conversation hearts.


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 just 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.


Wow, just wow. Roseshire is the Cadillac of rose bouquets. They are not cheap, but it's truly a luxurious experience. Even the packaging is chic — and specifically themed to each arrangement. But the most impressive part about a Roseshire shipment is how hydrated and healthy the roses are when they arrive. Each stem arrives in its own little water tube as well as chilled and cool to the touch as if it were perishable food to protect.

Venus et Fleur

Venus et Fleur was the first 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. The prices are much higher than a dozen roses from the grocery store, but these roses also last 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. And for Valentine's Day, there's even an option to guarantee arrival on February 14.
