When is it NOT a good time to send flowers? Of course Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, an anniversary, a birthday (or apology) are obvious occasions, but a bouquet of colorful petals can brighten anyone's day – even if it’s for no reason at all. Try out one of these cheap flower delivery services in the USA to easily send fresh, gorgeous bouquets (and maybe throw in some chocolates or even an edible) without any hassle. All of these services will deliver anywhere in the country, and some will deliver globally.

Even though you don't need an excuse to send flowers, if you're buying some for a very special occasion, there's heaps of expertly curated plants that look and smell divine. Choose from bouquets specifically designed for a friend's birthday, congratulating a relative on graduation, marking a career milestone, or sending get well soon wishes. If romance is your goal, you might also want to plan a getaway to one of the most romantic hotels in the US, but kick things off with a beautiful bouquet of roses first. 

Some of these services offer same-day delivery, while others offer options to get your bouquets from nearby local florists to guarantee a super fresh flower arrangement. What are you waiting for?

Best cheap flower delivery

Floom is one of the biggest names in the flower delivery game right now. The digital service allows you to order flowers, plants and gift baskets from local, independent florists all over the country. Just enter your zipcode, then persue by type of flower, occasion and more. Your bespoke bouquet will be hand-delivered to your boo on February 14th. 

This is farm to table for the flower industry. Bouqs Co sources its blooms from sustainable, eco-friendly farms across North and South America, and the best bit is they only cut what they sell. So nothing goes to waste and flowers often last longer than the ones you find in any grocery store. Plus, with flowers from $39 – or $28 if you subscribe – the Bouqs Co make for a happily affordable option.

Instead of packing your delicate posies into a box, Teleflora works with local florists to hand deliver every arrangement, meaning that you can avoid the split second of despair when trying to take them out of the packaging. The wide selection of bouquets includes something for every holiday, occasion and recipient, including plenty that can be delivered on the same day. Can’t decide which bouquet to order? Order the Deal of the Day: you just pick the price point, and a florist will do the rest.

Though the name screams French decadence (rightly so), it turns out that this sustainable flower shop is also pretty affordable, with their best-loved bouquets starting at the $64 mark. If you're based in New York and Chicago, you can expect your elegant bouquet that same day. For orders elsewhere in the US, Ode à la Rose works with their suppliers in Holland to get you your stems as quickly and cheaply as possible.

Founded in 1910, FTD was one of the earliest companies to get into the flower delivery game. Since the company works with more than 30,000 florists in 125 countries, it makes it easy to send a bouquet almost anywhere. They also are really on it with seasonal flower collections, like the curated selections of florals picked in gorgeous sunset tones for the beginning of fall. 

Like many nationwide floral brands, ProFlowers offers a bevy of blooms for same-day, nationwide delivery. You can find old standbys at surprisingly affordable prices (red roses for as low as $40), as well as more unique options like a juniper bonzai tree, a floral peace sign wreath and a tulip garden. Plus, it's easy to throw in a succulent or cheesecake pops to really make your delivery stand out.

Working with a tight budget and short time frame? Luckily, From You Flowers offer inexpensive options that can be delivered the same day, in some cases. Seriously: we’re talking around $30 for some arrangements. Though the designs can be a bit run-of-the-mill, the convenience factor certainly makes up for it. Besides, it's the thought that counts, and who doesn't love a classic bouquet?

As the name implies, Florists.com partners with local shops to deliver arrangements whenever possible. If they don’t have partnerships with florists in your area, though, they’ll ship your bouquet in a gift-wrapped box. These aren't just standard arrangements, either: you can also send live plants ranging from daffodils to mini orchids and fun fruit bouquets like an oversized margarita glass filled with chocolate-covered strawberries. There's also gift baskets, which are pretty much themed bouquets of food for occasions like Father's Day and newborn babies.

Though the name of this flower delivery brand hearkens back to the pre-internet era, they’ve since taken their massive catalog online. And since 1-800-Flowers.com also owns Harry and David and several other gift brands, too, it’s a snap to add a fruit basket, chocolate-covered strawberries and other goodies onto your order. Basically, it's the easiest way to sort out a pretty little gift without dedicating too much time to it. Why not treat yourself to a bunch to brighten up your home while you're at it?
