But before you buy flowers online, it’s important to note that you usually have two options: boxed or delivered by a florist. Boxed flowers usually don’t come pre-arranged or fully bloomed, which means you have to do a bit of work, but they tend to last longer. But if you want your sweetheart to enjoy all the splendor of a fully blossomed bouquet on February 14th, then the local florist option is your best bet.
Below, you’ll find 12 highly regarded floral services that are expected to be delivered by Valentine’s Day this year.

Our favorite: Darling Medley — $ 64.99
1-800-Flowers is probably one of the OG services that comes to mind when you think of flower delivery. There is a ton of valentine bouquets to choose from, as well as gifts like chocolates and teddy bears that your Valentine will find especially sweet. Additionally, we have found that 1-800-Flowers delivers quality bouquets in a timely manner after test the service ourselves.
One thing to note though: We found that the flowers on site delivered by local florists were far superior to those delivered in boxes. Those that arrive by the florist are well laid out and fully flowered, compared to those that come in a box that you will have to cut, feed, and place in a vase, which decreases the romance when receiving flowers. Plus, with a huge selection of local florists, you’ll be able to find the perfect bouquet for your sweetheart.
Our favorite: Bloomsy Roses Plan — $ 44.99 / month
Although BloomsyBox is technically a flower subscription service, you can still purchase a unique bouquet of the site for Valentine’s Day. Or you can just use the subscription and keep the romance blossoming for months. The flowers are all locally sourced and the site offers a range of seasonal flower bouquets. When we tested BloomsyBox we were impressed with their vibrant blooms which arrived on time and lasted around two weeks. While we haven’t received any of the individual bouquets, if they look like the subscription, your Valentine’s Day will be blown away.
Our favorite: I love you forever – $ 69
Several of my friends and colleagues have bragged about the fresh, eco-friendly flowers from Bouqs. I even sent a lovely bouquet to my parents and they loved the quality of the flowers. They source from local farms, so you get information on which farm your bouquet is coming from with every purchase. The site sells individual bouquets, but also offers a floral subscription service (which would also make a great permanent gift for your Valentine’s Day) that gives you 30% off your first bouquet. Our trade editor has been using the service for a year and is absolutely obsessed. Her mother receives them too and always sends her pictures and rejoices in the beauty of every arrangement.

6. Flowers Pro
Our favorite: Bouquet meant to be – $ 55.25
ProFlowers is an FTD company and has similar offerings, but with a slight twist. This is the first service we tested that delivered beautiful blooming flowers right out of the box rather than waiting a few days for them to straighten out. The flowers we tested lasted a full week without fading, which is shocking considering they are already in full bloom. In our experience they also arrived on time and looked absolutely stunning.
7. The threshold
Our favorite: Pink anthurium — $ 68

One of our editors bought a houseplant from The Sill and loved the plant delivery service. She enjoyed how well packed and safe her ZZ plant came with care instructions, so her plant is always thriving. You can expect the plant you choose for your Valentine’s Day to arrive intact.
