Want to send flowers? As we’ve posited, you don’t need a societally-approved reason (birthday, anniversary, apology) to do so.

We’ve mentioned several online flower shops we like over the past few years. Below, we highlight some of those and why you should consider them today, tomorrow or on a random Tuesday in March. Your recipient will thank you whenever they arrive.

1-800-Flowers

The giant in the flower industry — the company works with 5,000 florists nationwide — 1-800-Flowers also offers up variety and plenty of deals. They also have flower subscriptions and, more recently, a partnership with Bespoke Post so you can add non-flowers gifts from that lifestyle site to your order (honestly, if you want to add anything to your gift beyond flowers, like food baskets, 1-800 might be your best bet).

Floracracy

Besides offering personalization and shipping to the lower 48 states, the Rockford, IL-based online florist  is also primarily female-run and has a strong commitment to working with domestic violence shelters. If having a greater mission is important to you, it’s worth checking out these arrangements, which do take a bit more time to pick out (because you’re customizing these!).

The Bouqs Co.

A farm-direct, transparent-sourcing florist that offers flower subscriptions and a weekly deal (on Wednesdays). Definitely the freshest bouquets you’ll get, based on our personal experience.

Teleflora

The site’s Deal of the Day offers a set price — lower than other arrangements on the site — for a local florist to design their own bouquet for your loved one with just a bit of guidance from you. Plus, you can get same-day flower delivery and the site offers a good explanation on the language and meaning of different flowers.

FTD

Flowers from this century-old business are modestly priced, and same-day delivery is an option. And not to be morbid, but they’re one of the few flowers sites that advertises funeral flowers on the home page.

Enjoy Flowers

No middleman here; you’ll get artisan bouquets from farms in Colombia, available via subscription.

Farmgirl Flowers

Farmgirl started with a very minimalist idea: One daily arrangement, with no sizes, flower type or color to choose from. While no longer the case, these are premium bouquets with purposely limited (but beautiful) options.

UrbanStems

Farm-sourced and promising “on-trend flowers and creating one-of-a-kind arrangements,” UrbanStems also has same-day delivery in DC and NYC, along with a good selection of plants.
