Flowerstation

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. The 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 the pretty petals. These flowers really do look the business. It's easy and effective – what's not to love?

These flowers are something really special, selected and hand-tied by the florists at Appleyard. They release a brand new range of flowers every season, so whether it’s winter or spring, you get a bunch of flowers with a stunning new design to suit the season. You can also order in the likes of house plants and, our personal favourite, the artisan hamper collection, featuring pitta chips and amaretti biscuits.

Bloom & Wild

Bloom & Wild are the guys known for making flower delivery simple. A beautiful bunch of flowers tucked up in a flat rectangular box that can pop through your recipients’ letterbox while they’re out at work. It’s no-stress, no-hassle flower delivery, and the flowers come in bud form so you get to watch them bloom over a few days (note the name), which means they last a long time too. Plus there are a bunch of great add-ons in the form of champagne, chocolate and all the good stuff.

Freddie's Flowers

Looking to go one step further this Valentine's Day? Don't just buy your beau flowers once, buy them a subscription for life – or as many weeks as you'd like. Simply put, Freddie’s is a slightly different ball game to the rest, as they don’t do one-time deliveries. This is for the flower enthusiasts (they describe themselves as ‘like the milkman, but with flowers’). You subscribe to get fresh, hand-picked flowers delivered fresh to your door every week or month, and you arrange them yourself according to Freddie’s arranging guide. But the subscription model is pretty chill – you can pause, cancel or skip a delivery at any time on the website.

Shop Valentine's Day, birthdays, anniversaries and thank-yous, all handcrafted by an experienced artisan florist - and they’re guaranteed to stay fresh for a minimum of seven days. You can also add special requests, like ‘mum likes roses’ or ‘dad hates lilies’.

Bunches are a family business founded in 1989, and they’ve been delivering the sweetest of flower bunches ever since. From birthday-themed flowers with a card to full hampers, they’ve got what you need for any occasion, especially if the recipient likes pink. They even do a cheese and snacks cool bag, with an array of cheeses, grapes, chutneys and biscuits, but we particularly like their dried flowers, if you fancy something that will last forever.

Petalon has a new signature bouquet every week throughout the year at a set price, all grown on their own farm in Cornwall. There’s also an ‘order now, choose your flowers later’ option, and they offer subscriptions too. Their flowers are bespoke and hand-tied in hessian for delivery, and you get next day delivery if you order before 3.30pm. The best bit? Petalon donates 100 percent of its profits to UK conservation projects.

These range from beautiful dried flower bouquets to infinity roses that come boxed up in a posh little package. Infinity roses are real, fresh roses that get preserved so they last ‘forever’. They deliver same-day in London, and next-day everywhere else.

These guys are based in London (where they offer same-day delivery), but they also offer next-day delivery nationwide. There’s a reason we love Grace & Thorn so much here at Time Out. They’re a little pricey, but it’s worth it for their bouquets – featuring unique, bespoke designs and wild aesthetics. Oh, and go here if you’re getting married – they’ve got everything from huge bridal bouquets to floral crowns and cute little buttonhole blossoms.

This is where to go if you’re looking for something a little more grown-up. Haute’s bouquets are classic, graceful and perfectly floral. Choose from a Rome-themed selection or a luxury rose bouquet, and add on a birthday cake or bottle of merlot if you fancy it. But perhaps its biggest selling point is the customisation – you can even choose the exact window of time for it to arrive with your pal. Perfect.
