Pros / They’re relatively inexpensive.
Cons / The flowers we received were fresh but had some bruising and tearing.
Verdict / ProFlowers is our best budget pick because it offers a wide variety of quality flowers and additional gifts at fair prices.
One of the reasons ProFlowers isn’t our overall best pick is that it arrived in a box without a vase, so we had to assemble the bouquet ourselves. This means whoever you send boxed flowers to will need the tools necessary to cut them out of the packaging. This might not be ideal for someone in an office. Keep in mind that you can select the more expensive option of ordering a bouquet with a vase.
You can customize your order by adding a variety of different kinds of vases, all of which are beautiful and unique. The website also offers a variety of other products, including stuffed animals, chocolates and other treats, jewelry and even home decor items. If you're struggling to find the right thing, you can search gifts intended for mothers, significant others, daughters or friends to get ideas.
ProFlowers sends an email confirmation when your bouquet is delivered, and you can track your order online as it makes its way to that special someone. Knowing exactly where your flowers are can be handy. The flower selection is also massive, including traditional options like roses and lilies alongside more exotic plants like bonsai trees and orchids. Greenery abounds as well with a lot more to pick from than just plain old baby’s breath.
It depends on the time of year, but ProFlowers sometimes offers discounts through promo codes. The codes we saw were always advertised in an obvious way on the homepage of the website, eliminating the need to search elsewhere for deals. This upfront discount made for even more affordable flower arrangements.
We ordered the One Dozen Red Roses bouquet, which came in a box. As with all flowers that came in a box, they were hard to get out. This bouquet came without any extra greenery, but the blooms looked good when they were unpackaged and unfurled totally within four days. It also came with instructions and extra plant food, just like the bouquets we got from FTD and Harry & David. They lasted an impressive 11 days in our lab and received high scores from our team of evaluators on appearance and smell.
