Who offers the best Flower Delivery service? If you're trying to put a smile on someone's face, few things work as effectively - and beautifully - as fresh flowers. Research done by LaSalle University and Rutgers University show that when people receive flowers, they're happier in the short-term, their mood is boosted over the long-term, and they feel more connected to the sender.

There really is something to the idea of "flower power"! Even the practice of feng shui associates fresh-cut flowers with increasing abundance and positive energy. Is it any wonder that so many people choose Flower Delivery to celebrate important moments like the birth of a child, to share the grief in times of bereavement, and even as a "just because" pick-me-up for a friend or loved one?

1 800 Florals

1 800 FLORALS Visit Site

Cost:

$29.99 to $289.95

Phillip's Flowers & Gifts, the company behind 1-800-Florals, enjoys a long, solid reputation: nearly 100 years in the industry and an "A+" rating with the Better Business Bureau. This Chicago-area florist delivers to all 50 states and Canada, offering same-day and next-day delivery.

Before deciding which arrangements you want to buy, you should understand the difference between 1-800-Florals' arrangements that are fulfilled through a florist network, and their direct-ship next-day flowers and bouquets. The latter come at a discount - but they also come in a gift box, unarranged. As the site says, "they are not recommended for delivery [to any] location where it would be inconvenient for the recipient to arrange the flowers". Keep that in mind as you browse your options.

The 1-800-Florals site isn't the freshest flower in the bouquet, so to speak. The look and feel is dated, and shoppers have to hunt around to find what they want. The easiest way is to either browse the 75+ options on the main page - which are automatically presented from highest price to lowest, by the way - or to choose from the Shop by Occasion or Shop by Product in the dropdown options at the top of the page.

As we started looking through our options, things got confusing. For example, when we looked at a basic arrangement of 3 pink and 3 yellow roses, we were given the option to choose between three prices, one of which said, "as shown". According to the information offered under "Why Three Prices?", selecting a higher or lower price changes the "presentation value" of the flower delivery. But, other than showing three bouquets of increasing size, the site doesn't explain what you'll get: just a vague "longer stems, larger blossoms, a fancier vase" description of possibilities. We would definitely prefer to know what we're paying for, instead of paying a higher price for something we hope will be nice and not too expensive.

Speaking of expensive, 1-800-Florals charges a hefty $19.99 delivery/service fee on every order. That might not seem like much if you're ordering their most premium arrangement at $89.95. But, if you're ordering their lowest-priced arrangement at $29.95, spending almost double to include the delivery might have you looking at other online florists. That delivery fee is also a steep increase over the $7.95 they charged in the past.

While we appreciate 1-800-Florals' long history and reputation, their options for flower delivery are much more expensive than the competition - without adding any increased value for your dollar in return.

From You Flowers

FROM YOU FLOWERS Visit Site

Cost:

$24.99 to $261.24

From You Flowers was once at the top of the market when it came to flower delivery. You can still find their "best value" and "best overall quality and price" awards proudly displayed on their site - awards won almost 10 years ago. Are they still the florist of choice?

Their online store still features plenty of bouquets and other floral arrangements, along with plants, gift baskets and food. The site continues to be easy to use; shop by categories featured at the top of the page and select the flowers that interest you. You'll see a detailed description of what's included, and most of the arrangements we saw included a vase at no extra charge: a perk compared with several competitors. You can also opt for Regular, Deluxe, and Premium versions, though you won't be told exactly how much more "deluxe and premium" your delivery will be. And, you still have the ability to add balloons, chocolate, or a teddy bear to your order.

We were also shocked to see how many reviews From You Flowers has on third-party, independently-verified sites: over a million on one site alone! But, despite the company claiming to have over 5 million satisfied customers, the ones we heard from were anything but happy with the flowers delivered by From You.

We found far too many instances where the wrong items were delivered, and customers were only given a percentage of their purchase price as a refund. Also, many people said that the arrangements and bouquets were of a much poorer quality than what was shown on the From You Flowers site - one person described it as paying an expensive middleman to deliver the same bouquets you could buy yourself at the local grocery store.

We're glad to see that this company is accredited by the Better Business Bureau and had an "A+" rating at the time of our most recent review. Unfortunately, that doesn't do much to fix problems like having flowers delivered after a funeral ends (instead of on time for the service) or refusing to offer a full refund when a delivery goes completely missing.

From You Flowers needs to make big changes to stay competitive within the flower delivery market. For now, we suggest you take a look at one of the better-rated services in our review.

Also, when paired with an additional surprise like chocolates or a beautiful crystal vase, flowers can leave a lasting impression when delivered to the home or office.

How can you tell which Flower Delivery service to use? Naturally, you want to select a business that will make sure that your selected arrangement is delivered to the right person, the right address, and in fresh, pristine condition. As you consider the various businesses that offer Flower Delivery, keep in mind these basic criteria:

  • Cost. How much will you spend to get the bouquets and blooms you want to send? Is delivery included, or will you pay an extra fee?
  • Selection. Does the florist offer a good variety of arrangements? Can you add extra items like candies or stuffed animals?
  • Reputation. What do previous customers say about the Flower Delivery service? Were their flowers delivered on time and in good condition? Does the florist have a satisfaction guarantee, in case your delivery doesn't go to the right address or there are other issues?
