  • Mayfair

Based in London since 1956, this award-winning shop was founded by Lady Susan Pulbrook and Rosamund Gould, who was trained by the infamous (in the flower world) Constance Spry. Hard not to be famous with that name. She was famous for her flower arrangements but is also the co-inventor of Coronation chicken. Anyway. This means the flower displays here were adventurous and jaw-droppingly beautiful. Thankfully, the pair's artistry has continued on through the decades and Pulbrook and Gould provide incredibly high-quality blooms inspired by English country gardens from their shop in Belgravia and online. And they even do unbelievable faux bouquets for the not-so-green-fingered. Trust us, admirers will never spot the difference. They'll last longer too. Spray them with some perfume or something.

Gorgeous, hand-tied bouquets by experienced florists are what you'll find at Appleyard Flowers. Each season, they design a new range, which means you're guaranteed something oh-so cutting edge. 'The Birthday Collection' is a particularly pretty edit, with packages including Moët and truffles, 100 red roses, and a year's subscription, so the recipient receives flowers every month until they reach their next birthday. Proper romantic option for the flower heads you hold close to you. 

Bloom & Wild

While it has branched out into bigger hand-tied bouquets, it's the lovely letterbox flowers that make Bloom & Wild petal-pioneers. The perfect size to slot through the letterbox, you don't need to worry about someone being in to receive them, as these boxes of blooms will be there waiting on the doormat. Sort by occasion or collection and whether you're buying for a birthday, wedding or baby shower, Bloom & Wild will have you covered. Offering two-hour delivery within London, it's a great option for the forgetful. Oh, and if you want to make things even more special, pair your blooms with some small extras, from Charbonnel chocolates to sweet-smelling candles. Lovely stuff. As they're not fully bloomed on arrival the special someone will get to enjoy them blooming and being around for a little longer too. Everyone wins!

Flower Station is a true saviour for those of us with a memory like a goldfish or a severe case of last-minute-itis. It offers Londoners 24-hour service and same-day delivery (even on a Sunday) on orders before 6pm. Their bouquets vary in price, so there's something for every budget. But one thing you can always count on is the top-notch quality of their pretty petals. These flowers really do look the business. It's easy and effective – what's not to love! 

Grace & Thorne

One of the best things about East London florists Grace & Thorne, is that they deliver to most parts of London on a Sunday – even offering same-day if you order before midday (although that's cutting it fine, so choice may be restricted). These guys have done incredibly well since launching their tiny studio on Kingsland Road in 2011, offering artful bespoke designs that favour a wilder aesthetic. We're big fans. If the person in your life likes their greens, wants something more Insta than Facebook, and enjoys the more natural side of life, they'll love these.

Petalon

Don't panic, this isn't some trick to get you delivering your own flowers by bike, that definitely says Petalon and not Peloton. Unlike many flower delivery companies, which source a local florist to deliver your flowers nationawide, Petalon provide bouquets from their very own farm in Cornwall. That means that every week you'll find a unique new handful of bouquets to choose from. They come by bike, hand-tied and wrapped in hessian, so all the packaging is either biodegradable or recyclable, making for one very green service. The quality is excellent too and the arrangements are always beautiful. 

Rebel Rebel is the rock 'n' roller of the flower world. They'd have to be, really, with a David Bowie song for a name. As a blossoming independent business, RR offer a few exclusive – and exquisite – bouquet designs daily created from flowers bought each morning at New Covent Garden Flower Market. Naturally, they're all named after bands and songs. The extras are super cool too, with additions including hand-painted tin jugs from Pakistan and lovely Japanese florist's scissors. Very chic, and they'll last longer than the chocolates.

The founder of Flowerbx previously worked at Tom Ford for 20 years, which means the bouquets she now ships are super stylish (and really should smell damn nice, too). Specialising in single-variety bunches, this florist offers an elegantly simple, refreshingly clean aesthetic, that you'll be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. Just sort by occasion or flower type, pick the petals you like the most and select the number of stems you're after. And then? Well, you're away. Sleek and sexy flowers, delivered prompt, baby.

By now, you've probably heard of the concept of letterbox flowers; blooms that are carefully placed in a letterbox-sized package for the recipient to assemble on arrival. It's a convenient option when you're unsure if your giftee will be home on arrival; plus, they get to try their hand at creating a personal floral arrangement. Surprising how a misplaced Marigold here and a Tulip there can make the flowers look so different! Postabloom ensures that every delivery is fresh and beautiful, along with a free greeting card with every order. That said, you can also go old-school and order regular bouquets or even house plants in lovely white pots, for something that'll last a little longer (hopefully!).
