Sending flowers to someone or ordering a floral arrangement to perk up your dining room table? One or two major online floral delivery services probably come to mind, but consider other many exciting sites. The following sites highlight what each floral delivery site is known for and does best.
The Best Places to Buy Flowers Online in 2021
Sourcing its blooms from socially and environmentally ethical farms, San Francisco-based Farmgirl Flowers creates a select number of designer-quality arrangements each day and ships them all over the U.S. (the lower 48 states). Bouquets feature the best, seasonal flowers available. There’s a rotating gallery of in-season blooms. For example, it could be armfuls of ranunculus or a “grown in the U.S.A.” selection gathered exclusively from American growers. The florist's charming packaging touch means that all hand-tied bouquets arrive with the stems wrapped in upcycled burlap coffee bags from local Bay Area roasters.

This vast online network of local florists, searchable by zip code, offers users the convenience of coordinating the logistics of a flower delivery online with the benefits of supporting a small business. As with other sites, you’ll choose a florist’s bouquet based on its picture, but there's a delivery twist in its “Bloomsnap” feature—all customers receive a photo of the arrangement they’ve ordered before it’s hand-delivered.
Keep it simple and keep the flowers coming with this floral subscription service offering delivery plans on a monthly, weekly, and bi-weekly basis. Monthly subscriptions start at $39 a month, and weekly subscriptions start at $44.99, depending on the plan. Single-variety, paper-wrapped bouquets feature popular, in-season flowers (think sunflowers, blue hydrangea, and tulips) and a no-frills presentation as far as design. However, free overnight shipping—direct from the site’s global network of premium, fair-trade growers—means flowers are top-notch fresh. Many stems arrive in bud form so flowers last longer, and the recipient can have the pleasure of watching them blossom.

A reliable option for same-day delivery (with handwritten cards) in select states across the country, Floom corrals the best independent hidden-gem florists within a convenient Amazon-style shopping platform. These pros have been curated by founder Lana Elie, a former luxury fashion marketing executive, and her team, to ensure that all bouquets are on point, with an aesthetic and presentation that’s unique to the florist who designed it. First-time Floom-ers are eligible for complimentary delivery.
Ordering from Bouqs helps farmers all over the world grow their businesses. Shop the “Farm to Table” option and your flowers are cut to order, which means the growers cut only what they sell—no wasting one out of every three stems as is the norm elsewhere. Each farmer has a profile so you know exactly where the flowers are shipping from, whether it’s “Farmer Paul” from California or “Farmer Juanita” in Columbia. Same-day delivery is also available through a network of local artisan florists, searchable by zip code.

DIY floral arranging kits are this site’s specialty, so only purchase flowers here if you know the recipient would genuinely take pleasure in self-assembling the stems.

Choose from one of four chic looks you’d like to explore on an ongoing basis (Modern Farmhouse, Rustic Cottage, French Country, or Warm Industrial), and different bouquets will arrive according to your selected schedule. Special one-off kits are also available for as little as $20.

This luxe online flower boutique offers neat, tailored arrangements of impeccable, long-lasting roses from Ecuador.
