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?

Harry & David

HARRY & DAVID Visit Site

Cost:

$39.99 to $79.99

Harry & David has been a part of the gift-giving market for many years, from gourmet food and wine to gift towers and more. And, as part of the 1-800-Flowers brand family, Harry & David continues to offer a world-class satisfaction guarantee: a no-hassle refund or replacement if your gift isn't delivered in perfect condition, exactly as expected.

Also, as part of that brand group, you have the option of participating in the Celebrations Passport, which offers discounts and free shipping on many products, whether you're buying from Harry & David, The Popcorn Factory, or one of the other partner businesses.

If you're looking for a broad assortment of flowers, you definitely will not find it with Harry & David. Their selection is limited to just 11 bouquets and arrangements (5 fewer options than the last time we reviewed them). You'll find the basic lilies, tulips, and gerbera daisies, along with an orchid arrangement (when available).

One of the biggest negatives with using Harry & David for flower delivery is that none of their choices are available for same-day delivery - a fairly standard option with most florists, who use a partner network to fulfill orders locally. And, many of the flowers offered by Harry & David come in a box, with no vase. These two issues make Harry & David much less convenient than their competitors. Their limited selection might be due to the fact that their brand family includes the 1-800-Flowers label: a business that naturally specializes in flower delivery.

So, if you already participate in the Celebrations Passport and find something you like among the small selection Harry & David offers, you'll probably be pleased with the quality of the flowers delivered to your recipient. But, you'll definitely find a more robust selection elsewhere.

Flowers Fast

FLOWERS FAST Visit Site

Cost:

$24.90 to $497.90

Flowers Fast is based out of New York and has been in business for more than two decades. And, compared with some of their competitors' websites, Flowers Fast's online store seems like it might also be 20 years old. You won't find a glitzy site here.

You can find what you're looking for by using the navigation options on the left side of the page: shop by Occasion, Gift Ideas, Collections like Hallmark or Better Homes & Gardens, or by Price Range. Flowers Fast sells a good range of options, from simple baskets and bouquets in the Under $40 category, up to elaborate premium arrangements for more than $300.

On the high end, they offer a beautiful array of casket sprays and standing hearts for funerals and memorial services - something you won't find with every flower delivery service.

Every bouquet and arrangement has a detailed description of what is included. For example, the FTD Classic Beauty Bouquet comes with 12 stems and other greens in a classic vase. You can also upgrade to Deluxe or Premium arrangements, which come with 14 and 19 stems, respectively.

During the checkout process, you can add a stuffed animal, foil balloon, or boxed chocolates. And, pay attention to the "Special Comments" section: it defaults to allowing the florist to substitute a similar product if your arrangement is unavailable, so if you absolutely want it to be what you ordered, you'll need to replace the "yes" with "no". In that case, your order will be canceled if they can't deliver the exact flowers you requested.

At first glance, Flowers Fast has prices that are lower than other flower delivery services. But, when we added in the required $14.95 to $19.99 delivery fees, their prices were the same as or more expensive than the competition.

On a more positive note, Flowers Fast has a satisfaction guarantee: if you're not happy with the flower delivery for any reason, contact them or the delivering florist, where applicable, within 24 hours. They'll "provide a replacement or make other appropriate arrangements". We found a few customer comments that said the flowers their gift recipients received didn't look like the photos or weren't in good condition, but Flowers Fast took care of the problem.

Overall, Flowers Fast has a selection that's good, but at prices that are only okay and an outdated online store. Competitor flower delivery services offer a much more appealing shopping experience.

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?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Flower Delivery services available today. We hope this information helps you select the florist that can help put a smile on someone's face today!
