8 Flower Subscriptions Perfect For YouCONTRIBUTORS (4)

We all know buying fresh flowers is an easy yet thoughtful way to make someone’s day (especially your own!). But it can be tough to keep those grocery store blooms from wilting before day three—let alone learning how to arrange mixed stems and flowers. Enter flower subscription services. Unlike a one-time flower delivery, these clubs deliver weekly, monthly or every few months and keep your home looking—and smelling—oh so fresh.

Plus, they come expertly arranged. All you have to do (at most) is give the stems and leaves a quick trim and plop them in a vase for show-stopping arrangements. Our team of experts tested 10 services to find the best picks for every budget, flower preference and gifting style. This way to fresh blooms!

“My Bouqs bouquet arrived in an impeccable shape. We had been experiencing an autumn heat wave, yet my blooms came fresh—no wilting in sight!” shares Taste of Home‘s Senior Shopping Editor, Katie Bandurski.

“They were easy to unwrap and arrange in the included vase. While a bit of a craft project, it was fun to trim the stems and put my own twist on the arrangement of lilies, white roses, snapdragons and greenery. (I was impressed that some of the more fragile buds, like hydrangea heads, were double-wrapped for protection.) I’ve been enjoying my Bouqs for over five days, and they’re still going strong! Many mail-order flowers I’ve received have a shorter lifespan than florist arrangements or grocery store blooms, but I continue to be amazed at how long my flowers from The Bouqs Co. last.” Learn more about UrbanStems vs. Bouqs.

Taste of Home Product Testing Manager, Annamarie Higley, notes, “My 1-800 Flowers bouquet, which came from a local shop called Bayside Garden Center, absolutely delighted the maximalist in me. It was a cornucopia of textures and colors, and every bloom seemed to be at its best upon arrival. The yellow cockscomb was my favorite of the bunch—I’ve never seen anything like it. I’m blown away by the size, variety and presentation.”

Every detail, from the neat packaging to the included vase and stunning blooms, amazed me. Flowers are undoubtedly tricky to deliver, let alone when sent inside a cardboard box versus hand-delivered in the vase. My bouquet of white and pink roses, delphinium, snapdragons and thistle arrived carefully wrapped with zero damage in sight.

Trimming and arranging the flowers was half the fun, and my bouquet lasted almost two weeks. Plus, it arrived with fresh flower care tips to keep it in tip-top shape. UrbanStems truly masters every part of the ordering and receiving process, making it my new go-to for gifting.

Consider using this viral tape trick for a professional-looking bouquet. This service makes a great retirement gift or care package.

My BloomsyBox arrangement featuring red and white roses arrived just in time for the December holidays. Though the bouquet arrived expertly arranged, I quickly trimmed the stems for maximum freshness and plopped them in a clear glass vase. Some of the white roses began to turn a bit brown at about one and a half weeks, but it was hardly noticeable thanks to the eye-catching red blooms. Despite the less-than-ideal winter weather, my bouquet remained intact for a whopping two and a half weeks. BloomsyBox is officially my go-to for show-stopping flower delivery.

Show off your blooms in a unique vase, or consider a mason jar flower arrangement for a farmhouse vibe.

Best for DIY Arrangements

Bouquet Box

Pros:

  • Includes all the tools for mastering a flower arrangement
  • Expert-designed flower-arranging blueprint
  • Multiple subscription plans and bouquet sizes available
  • Eco-friendly flowers
  • Cancel at any time

Cons:

  • On the pricey side, but you receive several flower-arranging tools, too

Billed as a “floral arranging experience,” Bouquet Box is no ordinary flower subscription. Sure, the blooms that arrive are undeniably beautiful, but what makes it a masterpiece is that you can arrange it yourself! Don’t let that scare you, Bouquet Box includes all the bells and whistles needed to create a luxe DIY floral arrangement (think a grid vase for easy arranging, shears, a stem stripper, ruler, step-by-step instructions and of course, farm fresh flowers).

Choose your desired bouquet size and delivery frequency. Schedule deliveries every month, every two months or every three. Or, purchase one-off themed arrangement kits that catch your eye instead. By the time you finish your first arrangement, you’ll be dreaming of all the possibilities. Even better, arrangements are so fresh that they last the better part of two weeks rather than a few days. Bouquet Box gives recipients the tools, instructions and inspiration to begin arranging their own bouquets just like a professional. It’s not just a pretty arrangement—it’s a bonafide hobby!

Pomp Flowers

Pros:

  • Single rose bouquets and mixed rose bouquets available
  • Option to add a custom message for gifts
  • Subscription flexibility

  • Because they're roses, this subscription is a tad pricier

We love that you get to choose between a rose bouquet or mixed blooms, and you can customize the subscription frequency. They make it extra special when gifting to a loved one by including your custom message too.

“My bouquet was delivered in the middle of a Wisconsin snowstorm—and it still arrived in perfect condition,” says Katie. “Pomp’s impressive packaging protected every single bloom. Plus, the bouquet was massive! I enjoyed it for well over a week.”

Best Flower Subscription Gift

Olive & Cocoa Bouquet of the Month Club

Pros:

  • Bouquets arrive beautifully pre-arranged
  • Reasonable price point
  • Multiple subscription plans and bouquet options
  • Cancel at any time

Cons:

  • Flowers needed more insulation during delivery to protect them from weather elements

We all know flowers make the best gifts, but how do you pick the perfect flower subscription for a loved one? Leave it to Olive & Cocoa’s Bouquet of the Month Club for gift-able arrangements ideal for any season. Katie carefully evaluated the quality of service. “My flowers arrived on a cold November day, and some of the stems were a bit frozen. A little more insulation could have protected them more upon arrival. They were wrapped in brown paper and zip-tied to the box. They also came with care instructions and a cute little card.”

Katie Bandurski/Taste of Home

Despite a few quirks during the delivery, Katie explains, “One of my fave parts of Olive & Cocoa flowers is that you can pretty much just place them directly into a vase. I chose to trim the stems a little, but they were already beautifully arranged.”

As for how long the bouquet survived in the middle of a Wisconsin winter? “Like I said, I was worried these would only last a day or two because some of the stems came partially frozen,” says Katie. “But they survived for a full week! (Except for a few of the hydrangeas). I loved the blend of blooms spanning red roses, hypericum, hydrangea, spray roses, thistles, calla lilies and more. It’s truly the perfect winter bouquet. The price is quite reasonable, too. You get a generous bouquet, and the more months you buy, the cheaper it is. Plus, the experience is luxurious!”

Speaking of gifts, Olive & Cocoa offers the cutest gift baskets for every occasion too.

KATIE BANDURSKI/TASTE OF HOME

Katie tried this club and was instantly impressed. “Right out of the box, this gift doesn’t look like much. It is literally just a pot of dirt! But after a few days in the sun, little shoots start to form and the bulbs emerge. Then come leaves, buds and, finally, blooms. This is such a fun twist on a traditional flower bouquet. Instead of watching the arrangement wilt and die you can enjoy it coming to life!”

Choose from three, six or 12-month subscriptions.

Sending and receiving flowers is no easy feat. For starters, flowers are extremely delicate. Not to mention their cost can rack up quickly.

From the variety of stems available and ease of subscribing, to the overall delivery experience, we tested 10 flower subscription services to find the absolute best arrangements for your home and loved ones. We also carefully evaluated how long the stems last, from when the first petal drops to when the flowers wilted completely.

FAQs

How does a flower subscription work?

Most flower subscriptions are customizable based on how often you want blooms delivered. All of the services we tested are available as one-, three-, six- and 12-month subscriptions. You also get to choose the bouquet size. As for the blooms, most arrangements are seasonal, so you can look forward to a little something different with each delivery. Or, if you prefer the same style of bouquet each month, some services allow you to subscribe to a particular arrangement, like all red roses or all peonies.

Can I give a flower subscription as a gift?

Absolutely! Since most services offer multiple subscription plans, gift show-stopping arrangements delivered for three- or six months straight. If you’re feeling generous, you can also give a 12-month subscription, but it’s not necessary to participate in a flower subscription.
