In our tests, we asked 11 people from our office to go through and rate how well each bouquet looked and smelled. This meant spending time with every arrangement seeing whether the petals or leaves were damaged, how open they were and whether their color was bright and healthy. Reviewers also noted whether the roses were worth the cost and if they would recommend buying flowers from that company. 1800 flowers received the highest scores by a margin, with people noting the bouquet’s fresh smell, undamaged petals and leaves, and just the right balance of extra foliage.
The website allows you to customize your order, choosing between standard, deluxe and premium bouquets. There are a wide range of flowers to choose from as well, ranging from traditional roses to mixtures of daisies, carnations and lilies, and even a flower-covered cake. While the bouquet we got was ranked highly by our reviewers, you should keep in mind arrangements that are outsourced to local florists don’t always arrive exactly as they look online. The company 1800 Flowers used when they shipped to our lab was also used by Flower.com, so in the end we received two identical bouquets.
1800 Flowers also allows you to add extras like a stuffed teddy bear, chocolates or balloons right on the order page. For Valentine’s Day the company offers an array of different red and pink arrangements and vases to suit the tastes of your significant other. The Hugs and Kisses Bouquet with Red Roses comes with large pink carnations and white daisies, and the Swirling Desire Bouquet features mostly red flowers while pink lilies provide a softer color against greenery. With low prices and amazing customer service, including a confirmation email when your flowers arrive, this is our overall best pick.
