The very best flower delivery services in the UK
From birthdays to Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day, a beautiful bouquet is a fail-safe gift. I mean, who wouldn’t want a bunch of flowers to brighten their coffee table? Exactly.
Forget bae this V-Day – the 14th February is all about showing appreciation for the girls in your life. Yanno – your sis, your BFFs, your mum… your work colleagues? WHOEVER it is you’re loving, popping a nice bouquet of flowers in the post is the best way to show them you adore them. Or how about treating yourself to a beautiful bunch of flowers? Single ladies, there’s no better declaration of self-love – we’re telling you.
Flowers are also a fail-safe gift for those birthdays you totally forgot about. It happens to the best of us at times. But since so many flower delivery services now offer same-sex delivery, you don’t need to panic.
Order your bestie a bunch from your desk and it could be on hers by the afternoon! If you’re living in London, you’ll be spoilt for choice, because the capital is literally bursting at the seams with online florists. But if you live a little further afield, you can still get your hands on a super-pretty bouquet, no drama.
Floom operates nationwide (keeping scrolling to see the beautiful flowers they have on offer) and their flowers have an almost non-existent carbon footprint (round of applause!). We’re also loving Bloom & Wild who deliver their flowers flat in a box which fits through your letterbox. With instructions on how to arrange them yourself. Cute!
Operating nationwide, Floom was founded by Lana Elie after she was left horrified by a shoddy flower delivery. No one wants that, she thought, so she designed an easy-to-use website which sends genuinely beautiful flowers straight to your door. Or your BFF’s. Or your mum’s. Simply type in your postcode and it’ll bring up the bouquets of florists in the local area. The result? A beautiful bunch of flowers to your loved one and an almost-non-existent carbon footprint. Dreamy.
The reason we love Bloom & Wild so much? They deliver their flowers in letterbox packaging: flat, recyclable boxes. They offer next day delivery nationwide and same-day delivery in London. Forgot your besties bday? No problemo.
If you’re based in London, Appleyard Flowers will be an absolute life saver, because they offer same-day delivery in the capital. They specialise in seasonal flowers and create totally bespoke, luxury bouquets (mostly under £30). You’ll be able to choose from a variety of vibrant, beautiful flowers that your bestie is sure to love.
You’ve probably heard of Interflora already – they’ve been running for years, so they know exactly what they’re doing when it comes to gorgeous Valentine’s Day flowers. They have a dedicated Valentine’s Day section on their website with 22 gorgeous bouquets for you to choose from – and they won’t break the bank, either. Order now to get them delivered in time!

They always deliver flowers by hand (such a lovely touch) using their own same day flower delivery fleet. If you live in London, you can get them delivered within 24 hours, and you can even choose to buy the bouquet of the week or an adorable pot plant! How’s about that?
If you’re on a tight budget and on the hunt for beautiful flowers at a purse-pleasing price, head to Bunches. Most of their bouquets cost less than £30, with the cheapest bunches costing as little as £14.99. They also offer next-day delivery right across the UK. Result.
If you’re on the hunt for a specific flower, FLOWERBX is the place to go. You choose your flowers and how many stems you want of it, then they send it to your door step directly from flower markets in Holland. There’s no middleman, basically. These single-flower arrangements look really striking, and it means you can choose the recipients’ favourite.
Grace & Thorn
We’re obsessed with Grace & Thorn – their bouquets are asymmetric, wild and totally unique. You can order flowers in jam jars (so cute) or a “Get What You’re Given” florist’s choice box which requires next to no thought on your part (but makes a really lovely gift). We won’t tell if you don’t.
The Real Flower Company
The Real Flower Company is up there with our favourite flower delivery services, because they have a focus on sustainability. You don’t have to feel guilty about your gift! What’s more, The Real Flower Company specialise in scented flowers. Your bestie will be reminded of you everytime she walks into her bedroom. Aw.
