It may mean ruining the surprise, but if you’re sending flowers to someone, make sure the recipient will actually be present at the address where you’re sending them. With the majority of online flower delivery companies, you can authorize the delivery person to leave the flowers at the recipient’s address, but, during testing, we realized that our writer lived in a Chicago house with a locked front gate, and she needed to be home for the flowers to be delivered. When she asked several delivery companies what she should do about the front gate, they stated that they do their best to leave the flowers inside locked gates, but if there is no access, the flowers simply can’t be delivered.

Shop our selection of gorgeous bouquets and arrangements. From our incredible luxury collection featuring stunning long-stemmed roses and exotic orchids to cheery mixed bouquets and festive seasonal collections, there’s something here for everyone, and every occasion. Last-minute shoppers will appreciate our helpful delivery options, including overnight and same-day flower delivery. We even offer the choice of Sunday delivery. When you can’t be there in person, flowers delivered same day are a wonderful way to let loved ones know you’re thinking of them.
