Mother's Day is coming up soon, and if you'll be far away from mom or just can't be there on the big day, there are a number of ways to make her feel special and loved. Flower delivery services are a reliable choice, but with so many sites to choose between, you might understandably feel a bit lost on which to pick and which can get your gift to mom, or grandma, or another loved one on time. The guide below will take you through the ins and outs of the best flower delivery services there are to help you make the decision and find mom a gift she'll adore.
Whether you want to send a big bouquet of flowers, a box of chocolates, or if you have no clue what to send at all, the sites below will help you get your gift together and delivered on time for the big day. Delivery availability does vary depending on the items you select and where they're being sent.
The sooner you shop, the better. Not only will prices continue to rise as Mother's Day draws closer, but you'll also find that some delivery windows are completely unavailable on that day already. By placing your order soon, you can lock in a delivery estimate on the day and time you prefer.
1-800-Flowers uses local florists in your area to deliver the flowers you select online. There's even a service that lets you score mom a one-of-a-kind bouquet with flowers she'll love. This site has one of the best selections of all the flower delivery sites, and it has a large selection of other gifts to send along with them. If you want to send more than just flowers this Mother's Day, this is a great site to shop on.
Currently, 1-800-Flowers is offering contactless deliveries with no signature required. You can even score free shipping on your order through the Celebrations Passport membership which offers free shipping and no service charges at a variety of sites including 1-800-Flowers for just $29.99 per year.
FTD Online is one of the top flower delivery services in the world for good reason. With a wide variety of gorgeous bouquets and gifts to choose from, FTD lets you surprise a loved one on any day of the year. Standard delivery and same-day delivery pricing starts at $17.99, though you'll save quite a bit by ordering well in advance.
FTD Online has a lot more than flowers to order, so you could bundle mom's favorite flowers with treats like Godiva chocolates or a Starbucks gift basket.
Harry & David
Harry & David isn't a traditional flower delivery service. While you can order a range of flowers and plants on the site, Harry & David is much bigger than that. Along with a section for flowers, you'll find categories that are just as full with gift baskets of fruit, chocolates and candy, desserts, baked goodies, and more. Harry & David has big baskets and smaller gifts for every holiday and even a selection for those 'just because' moments.
You can score free shipping at Harry & David with a Celebrations Passport membership. For just $29.99 yearly, you'd earn free shipping there and at other sites including 1-800-Flowers, The Popcorn Factory, Simply Chocolate, and Personalization Universe, among others.
ProFlowers is one of the top flower delivery services in the country and ranked #1 in customer satisfaction by J.D. Power. Whether you're shopping for Mother's Day, a birthday, or practically any other occasion, ProFlowers has a wide variety of options to choose from and a 7-day freshness guarantee (14 days for potted plants). At this time, ProFlowers doesn't give you the ability to schedule a time for your order to be delivered.
ProFlowers even offers contactless delivery with no signature required so your flowers can be delivered safely.
JustFlowers has been in business since 1996 preparing flowers for events like Mother's Day and all sorts of occasions. You can find flowers for any event and have them delivered same day even; the site's Express Delivery option offers delivery within four hours. Of course, that won't be the case on Mother's Day when everyone is ordering and using the service. Be sure to order soon and get your delivery window locked in.
JustFlowers even has a Request field when ordering so you can request for your gift to be delivered during a certain part of the day.
Flower delivery can be quite a confusing thing. It's only after you reach checkout on half of the sites that you notice you're being charged an additional $20 for delivery, if you notice at all. Flowers Fast is free of tricks and confusing checkout pages. You clearly see the delivery fee and the price of any options you might have for adding extra gifts, and since the site is a bit smaller than the others, you're not inundated with options either.
Flowers Fast is named for its speed of delivery, but it also helps you order quickly too.
The Teleflora site is simple and makes it easy to find a gift for any occasion. Depending on when your order is placed, you can score same-day delivery on your gift or have it sent next-day if you're in a hurry. Of course, the best way to order flower delivery is by placing your order at least one week in advance, especially when the biggest flower delivery event of the year is coming up.
Teleflora offers contactless delivery on all orders. Due to high demand and limited flower availability, Mother's Day delivery windows are limited. Place your order soon for the best selection.
