Best online flower stores for Valentine’s Day 2024

From stylish offerings that elevate your flower order past roses, hydrangeas and daisies, we’re making it easy to dazzle her with flowers this Valentine’s Day.

Best overall online flower delivery service: The Bouqs


The Bouqs

As seen on ABC’s competition reality show “Shark Tank”, the Bouqs promises farm-fresh quality flowers guaranteed to stay fresher longer. Their flowers are responsibly sourced and rooted in kindness — to the planet and to the brand’s partners. Because flowers are sourced directly from the farms in which they grow, there is no middleman. Flowers are in transit for less time, which means they’ll stay in bloom longer before wilting.

The Bouqs promises stylish, modern arrangements with a variety of elegant vase and accompanying gift options. The Bouqs suggests ordering your Valentine’s Day flowers early to guarantee they arrive on top. 

What you need to know about the Bouqs:

  • Flowers arrive in bud form, so they blossom before her eyes.
  • The Bouqs offers free shipping to subscribers. A subscription costs $49.
  • A $15 flower delivery charge will apply to most delivery orders for non-subscribers, though delivery charges can vary.

Best flower quality and selection online: Urban Stems


Urban Stems

When it comes to buying flowers online, we like the quality, variety of offerings, freshness and style of Urban Stems. Urban Stems guarantees same-day or next-day delivery to New York City, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta and Miami. The online flower retailer does offer coast-to-coast delivery to other cities, but can’t guarantee same-day or next-day delivery.

The real star of the show here are the modern arrangements, with extensive peony offerings (in season now) and unique designs you won’t find elsewhere. Urban Stems is a terrific choice if you’re looking for a modern and elevated arrangement, or are looking for arrangements with elegant flowers other than roses.

  • Please order at least 48 hours before your desired delivery date. Delivery costs $10-30 per order.

What you need to know about Urban Stems:

  • The brand has a freshness guarantee: If flowers don’t meet expectations, Urban Stems will make it right.
  • Flowers can be hand delivered within parts of Manhattan, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles. (Flowers that are not hand delivered will be packaged, shipped and delivered using a reputable shipper.)

When is the last day to order flowers for Valentine’s Day?

Mega online flower retailers such as 1-800-FLOWERS offer same-day Valentine’s Day ordering, but you’ll pay an extra delivery charge. Many local flower shops and online flower retailers will deliver your Valentine’s Day order anytime between Feb. 13 and Feb. 15, unless you specifically request a Feb. 14 delivery.

Each flower retailer has different Valentine’s Day delivery deadlines, but in general, the smaller the flower shop, the less flexibility they’ll have to accommodate last-minute orders. Even larger online flower retailers will see delivery spots fill up quick. We suggest placing your Valentine’s Day flower order a week in advance to guarantee you’re not shut out of flower delivery on Valentine’s Day this year.

We think the best day to have your Valentine’s Day flowers delivered is on Tuesday, Feb. 13, 2024. You’ll pay less in delivery charges and will be more likely to get on the flower delivery calendar, even if you’re ordering closer to the deadline. And with winter weather throwing wrenches into everything from NFL games to morning commutes, asking for a Feb. 13 delivery gives your gift extra time to arrive by Valentine’s Day if shipping delays occur.

The easiest way to save money on Valentine’s Day flower delivery this year is to order your arrangement early. That way, you avoid last-minute surcharges, shipping surcharges or paying higher prices because options are limited. You can also save money by choosing a delivery date other than Feb. 14.
