Not all of us can plan ahead for Valentine’s Day. Some of you may be suddenly realizing that you planned very poorly for Valentine’s Day and now only have a limited amount of time to get flowers to your special someone. And sure, you could drop by a local grocery store or flower shop and pick up a bouquet and deliver it in person. But what if your loved one is in another city and you can’t do an in-person delivery? Or what if you’re wanting to avoid crowds? There are actually some options for last-minute Valentine’s flowers that you can take advantage of, even on Valentine’s Day itself.

Pro Flowers has an entire section with same-day delivery choices for Valentine’s Day. They’ve partnered with FTD to provide florist-designed gifts available for hand delivery on the day you order them. The bouquets range from $49.99 and up, but if you’re ordering flowers at the last minute, you’re probably not expecting them to be super cheap.

FTD also has same-day delivery directly through their site, if you want to go there rather than using Pro Flowers. Same-day delivery is typically available through 2 p.m. in your time zone, although the holiday cutoff time may end earlier around noon.

Another option is 1-800 Flowers. If you order flowers by 2:30 p.m. in your time zone on Valentine’s Day, you can get same-day delivery. Click here to check out the options available on the site. The cutoff time is earlier if you’re ordering fruit or delivering to a business rather than a residence.

Teleflora also offers same-day flower delivery if you place your order by 3 p.m.

Don’t forget FromYouFlowers.com, which also offers same-day delivery. Check out all your bouquet options to find the one that’s right for you. Some same-day delivery options include teddy bears and candy too.

UrbanStems also offers same-day delivery, but you’ll need to order fast. Some of their options are selling out.

While you’re making plans for flower deliveries, don’t make this mistake:

If you still need an online last-minute option, try Bouqs. This startup offers flowers from ecofriendly farmers and local businesses. The flowers come with a 100 percent happiness guarantee. And yes, they offer same-day delivery too.
