I’m a big fan of gifting flowers — both to others and to myself. They instantly brighten any room and are a welcome contrast to screen life, especially at a time when workspaces and living spaces are more commonly becoming one and the same. And, thanks to modern online florists, ordering stunning, fresh blooms is easier than ever before. What you see on these websites and apps is exactly what you’re gifting (or getting for yourself), so you can confidently choose the arrangement that best fits the style you’re looking for — whether that be a showstopping bouquet or your next plant baby. Below, you’ll find a list of our favorite online florists to keep on your digital speed dial, plus some recommendations we love for gifting all year round.
