We've raved about Bloom & Wild many a time, and they are definitely our favourite flower delivery service. They specialise in really lovely, hand-tied bouquets and gorgeous letterbox flowers that have a lovely, soft look and scent. The fact that they fit through a letterbox means that no one has to be in, to receive the delivery, and each flower is so meticulously wrapped that they arrive in perfect condition. 

We love that every bouquet comes with styling tips from the Bloom & Wild florists, so you can learn the best way to display your flowers. All the flowers are picked still in bud, so you (or the lucky recipient) can watch the flowers open over the first few days.

If you're after a really affordable flower delivery service, make sure you check out Eflorist, because not only do they have great prices, but there's always some kind of offer going on, to save you money. If you order before 3pm you can get same day delivery, which is a massive plus, and these are the longest lasting flowers from our pick, with up to seven days of freshness. 

We especially love that Eflorist partners with local UK florists and their bouquets are personally prepared and handmade to order. And because they aren't flown from anywhere or have to travel long distances, the blooms stay fresher, and you get to enjoy the flowers for longer.

Reasons to avoid
-Do not offer same day delivery 

We love a brand with a story and ethics behind it, and we know you do too, and that's why we really like Bunches. Bunches give 10 per cent of their profits to help those in need in both the UK and developing countries, and the company is really involved with seeing how this money is spent to better people's lives. 

They also make sure their flowers all come from farms that adopt the best agricultural practices (save on water consumption and emissions, disposing of waste properly) and are sourced from Florverde Sustainable Flowers (FSF) certified farms in regions found in parts of the developing world. 

As well as being ethical, the flowers are all gorgeous and last for ages.

The best place to order flowers for all styles

Specifications
Delivery options: Next day delivery
Flower freshness: 5-day guarantee
Letterbox delivery?: Yes
Prices from: £18
Reasons to buy
+Great value+Options for gifts with flower delivery+Many colours and styles  

You might know Moonpig for their funny cards and the slogan that seems to forever be stuck in your head, but they sell really gorgeous flowers, too. They have bouquets to suit all styles and occasions, including options that come with hampers, chocolates, booze, balloons and more.

You can pick between courier delivered bouquets or letterbox flowers if you aren't sure your recipient will be in. The letterbox flowers are unopened buds, so they will bloom after they have arrived, which we think is lovely, but if you are after the oohs and aahs, go with a hand delivered bouquet.
