1. UrbanStems

You won't get a more seasonal arrangement than at UrbanStems. These guys only sell stuff they can acquire from farms, so the variety they stock changes each month. Each arrangement is imaginatively named (The Winona, The Geoff, The Apres Ski…) and cut by the capable in-house pros. And the best bit? Delivery is already included. Swish.

2. Floom

Take the guesswork out of ordering flowers with Floom, a digital service that delivers stunning blooms from Chicago’s top florists, including Asrai, Fleur and Marguerite Gardens. The interface is easy and downright beautiful, and you don’t have to worry about sifting through cheesy arrangements in search of something special. Browse a selection of thoughtfully curated bouquets and plants—all meticulously photographed so that you know what to expect—and schedule your delivery. There’s something for every price point and occasion, from birthdays to celebrations to tough times.

3. Flowers For Dreams

Shopping Flower shops River West/West Town

Born as a college project, Flowers for Dreams has revolutionized the concept of floral delivery in Chicago. How? The company set out to do away with baby’s breath and pesticide-infested roses in favor of modern, locally sourced stems. To top it all off, a quarter of its profits go towards a local charity each month. Starting at just $35, you can get a charming bouquet artfully wrapped in rustic, recyclable cloth, hand-delivered. You'll also never be upsold on a teddy bear, box of chocolates or cheesy balloons—they don't even carry them! The flowers are center-stage.

4. Ode à la Rose

If the name didn't give it away already, Ode á la Rose is French. Or at least it was founded by a couple of lovely French guys, who add unfiltered levels of chic to their arrangements. Each bouquet is hand-tied in their West Town studio in Chicago, then packaged in a stylish pink box and sent out for delivery (same-day within the city of Chicago, next-day to the suburbs and neighboring cities in the Midwest). And to ensure you're absolutely happy with your order, they'll even send a photo of it to you before they dispatch.

Roses Only

5. Roses Only

All things rose-y are the raison d'etre of this flower-filled online business. Pick your bunch by choosing size, colour and more, choose a gift pack (with chocolates) and get next-day delivery if you need it. You can even purchase specially treated (but real) flowers that’ll last for an entire year. And if that isn’t enough to convince you: The company’s blooms have been featured on The Ellen Show and are popular with other celebrities, too.

Shopping Flower shops Logan Square

Owner Kelly Marie Thompson stocks her one-of-a-kind Logan Square boutique with only the freshest seasonal blooms in both exotic varieties and contemporary styles. Order arrangements for pickup or delivery for special occasions, weddings, or just because. Once you're done drooling over the beautiful flowers, you’ll also notice the shop's charming selection of fine cards, candles, jewelry and home goods.

7. Southside Blooms

A "farm-to-vase" flourist on the city's South Side that grows beautiful flowers in vacant lots, this local business prides itself on bringing beauty to the neighborhoods it operates in as well as its customers. You'll find a small selection of bouquets available for delivery within the Chicagoland area. If you're feeling extra kind, you can also donate an arrangement to a person in need.

8. The Bouqs Co

Though the Bouqs Co is a national floral delivery service, this company has more compelling arrangements than the humdrum bouquets of carnations and daisies you see on some competitor sites. In fact, The Bouqs Co sources all of its flowers from eco-friendly and socially responsible farms, with the blooms cut the day that you order them. That includes a collection of blooms grown at the base of a volcano in South America. (How's that for a story?) With a streamlined ordering process, the price you see is what you get, with the delivery fee included. Choose from dozens of floral designs, with same-day delivery also available.

9. Marguerite Gardens

Shopping Flower shops Ukrainian Village

Inspired by European-style flower shops, Marguerite Gardens offers a fantastic range of fresh blooms from the familiar (roses, lilies, tulips) to more unique (pincushion protea, raspberry thistle) in a rustic-industrial West Town space. Without a doubt, the best way to order delivery from Marguerite is by selecting "Designer's Choice," and allowing the pros to pull the freshest stems from their inventory—all you have to do is choose a price point ($75, $90 or $125) and they'll do the rest.

10. Field & Florist

With a farm located in southwest Michigan, Field & Florist deals in exquisitely fresh local blooms—which means nothing's flown in from afar. Right now, the shop is offering select stems for delivery alongside a collection of beautiful gifts, including hand cream, tinctures, masks and oils—perfect for Mother's Day.

11. BloomNation

Instead of the usual selection of impersonal, mass-produced bouquets you find on most online retailers’ websites, BloomNation showcases unique arrangements from local florists. Working with a network of local shops not only allows them to offer easy same-day delivery, but also gives you a much more diverse selection to choose from. Blooms on offer include peach roses tucked inside a teal hatbox, the dusty peach arrangement pictured and even glass terrariums filled with teeny-tiny plants. Aw.

12. ProFlowers

ProFlowers has an arrangement for every occasion (funeral, birthday, engagement, business gifting) and even offers same-day delivery nationwide. It may not be the trendiest choice, but it certainly is one of the most convenient.
