Looking for a great next-day flower service that can deliver to just about anywhere in the country? (Or even the world?) Let’s take a good look at the pros and cons of three top flower providers on the internet to see how they stack up.

1-800 Flowers

1-800 Flowers is a local flower store turned national chain, offering people the power to deliver flowers to a loved one just about anywhere in the world with nothing more than a phone call (or a mouse click). And forget about next-day delivery – if you order by 2:00 p.m. in your recipient’s time zone, you can get it delivered that very day! (Deadline is different on weekends).

Delivery Range: 1-800 Flowers has a large delivery range and local stores in almost every state. You can send flowers internationally, too, but the selection varies greatly. (If you want to send flowers to Canada or England, you have plenty of options. If you are looking to send to Japan, however, your choices are a bit more slim… like in the area of one.) See here for a list of countries.

Price Compare on One Dozen Red Roses: 12 Rose Elegance Premium Long Stem Red Roses will cost you $49.99, including the 11" vase. You can also upgrade to 18 roses for $69.99.

Other Goodies: 1-800 Flowers offers all the typical gourmet gift basket fare, from chocolate covered strawberries to meats to wines. But they also offer some more unique treats like the cookie-of-the-month club, which delivers creatively designed frosted cookies every month of the year. You can also deliver stuffed animals, balloons, and other festive gifts.

Next Day Flowers

Who better to work with on next day flower delivery than Next Day Flowers? They are a subsidiary of ItsFlowers.com, specializing expressly in next-day deliveries.

Delivery Range: Next Day Flowers only offers deliveries within the U.S.

Price Compare on One Dozen Red Roses: One Dozen Long Stem Red Roses with a clear tall vase will run you $59.99 at Next Day Flowers. That is, unless you want to upgrade to the “deluxe” or “premium” sizes – those will cost you $69.99 and $79.99, respectively. However, they do not specify exactly what the difference is between these “grades”.

Other Goodies: Next Day Flowers focuses mainly on (surprise surprise) flowers, but they do offer a few options for sweet treats and festive balloons. There’s nothing necessarily wrong with that, but you will have to look elsewhere if you want a gourmet fruit basket delivered next day.

FTD Florists

Of course, no list of top floral companies could be complete without long-time player FTD. FTD offers next-day service to just about anywhere in the world, and they have a selection that could wow the most jaded gardener. You can get all of the traditional flowers delivered, of course. But if you are in the mood for a change of pace, how about a bamboo plant or bonsai tree? (Potted, of course). Shop by specialty collection, occasion, flower type, and much more. FTD also offers same-day service on many products, so check them out when you need some really fast brownie points.

Delivery Range: All over the U.S. and in many foreign countries. International orders can be next-day if you order by 2 p.m. Eastern time.

Price Compare on One Dozen Red Roses: You are looking at $49.99 for a Vera Wang Red Rose Bouquet, which is “one dozen 20-inch premium long stem roses”. Add on another $10 to include a vase, or upgrade to $84.99 in order to make it two dozen.

Other Goodies: You name it, they probably stock it! Godiva chocolates, luxury spa baskets, wine and cheese, balloons and bears, and the list just keeps going.

We hope you have enjoyed this look at the top names in online next-day flower delivery. Any time of year, a flower delivery is a great way to express your appreciation for the ones you love. Use these sites to make sure it happens fast!
