Flower delivery in NYC: 16 best online stores

1. The Bouqs Co

These eco-friendly flower sellers ensure that all their blooms come directly from farms, which means that your flowers will arrive as fresh as possible. Also, the fact that they remove the middleman means that those savings are passed to you. So that’s pretty neat, right? Oh and if you're after something a little more long-lasting, opt for delivery of one of the ‘dried collection’ options and your blooms will last for up to a year. A great way to express your never-dying love.

Where they deliver: Along with standard delivery, there's same-day delivery all over NYC when you get your order in before noon. Score. 

Why we like them: With irresistible names like Vanilla Cake and Butter Pecan how could you not want to get your hands on one of these trendy, beautifully handcrafted bouquets? 

What’s the price point: Arrangements start from $54 without a subscription, and from $38 for subscribers. 

2. Ode à la Rose

Whether you’re ordering for a few blocks down or outside of NYC, these guys have got you covered. Founded by Louis Brunet and Olivier Plusquellec in 2011, the very French Ode à la Rose delivers some seriously lovely-looking bouquets for Valentine's Day, both within NYC and beyond. The website is ordered by occasion, color, and price, so you’ll certainly find something for whatever you’re looking for. And the best part? They all come hand-tied in Ode à la Rose’s signature little box. Perfect. 

Where they deliver: Delivery all over NYC? You bet. And if you just so happen to need a last-minute miracle, Ode à la Rose also offers same-day delivery.  

Why we like them: It's a sumptuous slice of Paris in the Big Apple. Incredibly eye-catching, each Ode à la Rose bouquet is elegant, striking and delicate. Our favourite? Sabine. Just wow.

What’s the price point: Find the perfect bouquet from $58.


3. ProFlowers

These guys are the experts when it comes great-value flower delivery. You can bag yourself a beautiful bouquet for as little as $40, ranging from stunning roses to grow-your-own wildflowers and even terrariums, filled with your very own botanical ecosystem. ProFlowers deliver same and next-day all over the country too (so it’s not just lucky New Yorkers that get to benefit from your generosity) and they offer a superb range of add-ons to make your gift even more special. Think irresistible Belgian chocolate-dipped Oreo cookies and 3D pop-up cards.

Where they deliver: They've got almost all of the US and Canada covered, as well as international shipping options too. 

Why we like them: What can we say? We're a sucker for a pop of colour, and these bouquets certainly know how to hit the mark, with one to suit just about every mood. But if you're not sure what to go for, their long-stem roses always work a treat. 

What’s the price point: Make yours or someone else's day from $40 for a bouquet.

4. FTD

Founded in 1910 with just ten florists in the collective, FTD (Florists’ Transworld Delivery, if you’re wondering) has since grown from telegraph deliveries locally to online deliveries worldwide. They may not be as classy as Starbright or Winston’s, but they’re not as pricey either. For very affordable prices, you can get the prettiest blooms to make someone swoon. When we got our bouquets from Cress Flowers & Events in Queens, they arrived fresh (and smelling like they’d just been picked) inside glass vases, one of which had a painted gold base. The most breathtaking bouquet was themed after “a Parisian stroll” with vibrant roses, hydrangeas and alstroemerias.

Where they deliver: All over NYC and then some. Panic gifters they've got you; same-day is available on orders in before 2pm on weekdays and 1pm on weekends.

Why we like them: The many themes for all occasions, including the vague but oh-so-lovely 'cheer someone up'.

What’s the price point: Floral arrangements start from $40.


5. From You Flowers

If you’re someone who tends to put things off until the very last minute, fear not. From You Flowers is here to save the day. FYF’s same-day delivery service has come in handy for many last-min shoppers. From You Flowers specializes in providing top-value flowers with speedy delivery, so while the bouquets here might not be quite as over-the-top as some of the rest on this list, you can rest assured you’re getting plenty of bang for your buck.

Where they deliver: Good news, NYC, From You Flowers work with network of trusted local Florists who can deliver pretty much anywhere in the US of A. 

Why we like them: Ever in the mood to give someone a gift just because? From You Flowers have a lot of cheerful and quirky bouquets in that department.

What’s the price point: Find the one (as in the right bouquet) for as little as $31.99.

6. The Sill

The obvious option is to go down the cut stems route where special occasions are concerned. (And, hey, The Sill is doing a lovely DIY bouquet kit of its own.) But how about opting for something a little more permanent? The Sill is selling a collection of appropriate pot plants, all with pretty features or eye-catching foliage.

Where they deliver: They ship across all 48 states, with same-day delivery and curbside pick-up in select locations, NYC included. 

Why we like them: From pet-friendly to air-purifying, The Sill created a vast catalogue of stylish planters to look good in literally every apartment. Get more shade than sunlight? You can even find a leafy pal according to light tolerance.

What’s the price point: Planters start from $34, so pretty cheap. 


7. Flowerbx

Flowerbx's founder worked alongside Tom Ford for 20 years and caters to top design houses in New York and London – so you can bank on super-stylish bouquets and fresher-than-fresh blooms. Search through bespoke collections and you find seasonal hues with a classic sense of elegance.

Where they deliver: Flowerbx deliver to selected states on the East Coast, including New York, New Jersey, New Hampshire and more. Manhattanites have it a little too good with same-day delivery on orders made before 1pm.

Why we like them: Receiving a bunch from Flowerbx is truly a spectacle, so it just might be enough to get you out of the dog house. And if there's one we adore the most it has to be the Pink Sweet Avalanche Collection. 

What’s the price point: Find the perfect gift from $60 - ideal for those who want to make a statement. 

8. BloomNation

Founded back in August 2011, this flower delivery service crowdsources its catalog of arrangements from florists in the local area, so you can select from the freshest, seasonally appropriate blooms in your area.

9. Teleflora

The ol' grandmomma of all online florists, Teleflora has held its corner of flower delivery for over 80 years. After you place an order online, the company sends it to a local florist to arrange and deliver by hand. It’s also perfect for procrastinators: that's right, as long as you place your order by 2pm, you can still get same-day delivery. A lifesaver, indeed.

Floom sources high-end flowers from local New York florists, offering gorgeous traditional-style bouquets of peonies, tulips, and more. There’s a huge array of delivery options here, so this is the place to shop if you want plenty of (beautiful) choice.

Why we like them: You count on Floom to deliver on time, with floral arrangements from local independent suppliers that always hit the mark. 

What’s the price point: With such a wide variety, you'll find something to suit any budget. But in case you're looking for a ballpark, we'd say $52.


11. Roses Only

There's no question about what this online flower-seller is all about. Roses, only. Got it? Good. This store prides itself on roses of varied colors and varieties, which you can buy in gift boxes of six to 100. Go for the traditional deep red, or branch out for blushing pink or one of the other many hues. All kept pristine and beautiful. 

Where they deliver: Roses Only deliver pretty much all over — well, except for Alaska and Hawaii (sorry, guys). 

Why we like them: These long-stemmed roses are expertly grown, then carefully plucked and pruned to ensure your nearest and dearest get the very best blooms.

With shops in both Brooklyn and Soho, Julia Testa’s designer flowers are available across NYC with same-day delivery. They might not be the most budget-friendly of the bunch – but man, oh man, are they beautiful. We love the unconventional asymmetrical shapes of many of their bouquets. 

Where they deliver: Get yours hand-delivered to wherever you (or they) across NYC. There's also a special courier service for deliveries that fall outside of Julia Testa's general delivery radius – don't bet your bottom dollar on it though, these guys are quite popular.
