The 7 Best Flower Delivery Services That Ship Quickly
Never forget a birthday, holiday or anniversary again with these gorgeous last-minute options.
Valentine’s Day is less than a month away, and if you’re prepping for your kid’s class celebration or a work party, it’s easy to forget to send a valentine to friends and family. Instead of scrambling at the drugstore last-minute for pink and red chocolate, why not schedule a flower delivery? 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. Many companies offer two-day or even same-day delivery service in the U.S. Take a look at our favorite bouquets for Valentine’s Day below and bookmark these companies for birthdays, anniversaries and any other gifting occasions this year.
Best for Sustainable Options: The Bouqs Co.
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.” The shipping fee is $12 but you can score free shipping on weekdays with any order more than $100. Depending on your location, The Bouqs Co. select bouquets are available for next-day and even same-day delivery.
Best for Chic Arrangements: Urban Stems + Terrain
For the most gorgeous, borderline-bridal-magazine level, swoon-worthy flowers, it’s a (bouquet) toss between Terrain and Urban Stems. 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 their 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 hellebore, amaryllis and lily of the valley 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, but otherwise, Monday, Feb. 10 is the order deadline for Valentine's Day delivery.
Best for Prime Members: Benchmark Bouquets
Did you know that Amazon has floral delivery services? Yes, Amazon. And, yes, plural! 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. This means you don’t have to remember another login and password, and your payment info is already stored — no need to go hunt down a credit card. The Amazon store Benchmark Bouquets has several pretty arrangements for less than $50 with Prime shipping. And even better, some of their bouquets benefit the Life is Good Kids Foundation which helps children heal from early childhood trauma.
Best for Budget-Friendly Options: FTD
FTD has been in the floral business forever, and they have tons of quality bouquets for less than $40. Plus, they frequently run deals on a dozen roses (colors vary) for $25. That’s just a dollar a stem! And if you do procrastinate, they have a variety of options for same-day delivery based on your location.
Best for Variety of Flowers: ProFlowers
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.
Best for Variety for Same-Day Delivery: 1800Flowers
Down to the wire? 1800Flowers has a whole page just for same-day delivery with tons of options, from birthday arrangements to centerpiece designs. Several of their flower sculptures are also available for same-day shipping, from a unicorn flower cake to a petal puppy. These designs are super fun and sure to make the receiver smile.
These low-commitment gifts are perfect for anyone who's still not exactly sure where things are going but is excited to see what the future holds.
