Hong Kong’s best florists
One of the most popular florists in town with regular customers ranging from hobbyists to high-society folks. Though not necessarily the most budget-friendly, Anglo Chinese does luxury well.

This Lyndhurst Terrace shop also gets busy during CNY when they offer everything from tangerines and orchids to other prosperity fruits. From $1,580.
For those who don’t have the time to make a trip to the florist, there’s Bydeau. This online and mobile flower boutique lets you pick and choose curated flower arrangements for every occasion and it can also do same-day delivery or by schedule. The signature hand-tied bouquets made with fresh flowers are a popular option, though, for something a little longer-lasting, you can opt for the flower vase options to brighten up any work or home space. Either way, you can make someone’s day with just a few clicks of your mouse. From $300; bydeau.com.
