In any relationship, there are many—and we repeat, many!!—occasions and opportunities for a flower delivery. And this is especially true in the time leading up to your wedding, when both your stress and love are real. (Seriously, take our word for it: The gift of flower deliveries can come in handy as a surprise for your partner, or as a thank you when a loved one helps check an item off your wedding to-do list.) But between all the birthdays, special occasions, and just-because surprises, Valentine's Day will always come out on top as one of the most popular day for flower deliveries.
As much as we all hate to admit it, the pressure is real on February 14th. There will be balloons, gifts, fancy dinners, and grand gestures. And while all of that is well and good, there's something over-the-top yet not totally cheesy about a beautiful flower delivery. As a gift, it feels real, authentic, and beautiful—which, in our minds, is what true love is all about. Plus, the options are virtually endless. With traditional bundles of roses and more unique boxes of blooms, there's a bouquet out there for everyone.
So, with that said, our editors put together a list of nine flower delivery services that we can honestly stand behind. Whether you're a groom ordering for your future wife or a bride sending your BFF an "I love you" bouquet, keep reading for our take on the best places to order flowers online. And while the arrangements on these sites are all stunning—seriously, we could scroll for ages—our top tip is to remember who you're ordering for. If her favorite color is pink, consider an arrangement of pastel blooms rather than the standard red roses. If she's into sustainability, find a place that upholds her values. If she loves a good class of wine, get her a bottle of rosé to go with her roses! And if she's not into flowers at all, consider selecting a succulent in a really cool container that would look awesome at her desk at work. Because as much as we all love the thrill of a flower delivery, there's nothing as special as one that resonates with both you and the one you love.
