This Might Be the Most Convenient Way to Send Flowers to Your Loved Ones
Giving a bouquet of flowers to someone you love for Valentine’s Day isn’t exactly a new idea, but the ability to order a gorgeous arrangement of fresh, sustainably sourced flowers in advance is, whether that’s weeks ahead or with just a day to spare. And that's exactly what online gifting company Urbanstems is ideal for.
The company works with Rainforest Alliance Certified farms (meaning they meet certain social, economic, and environmental standards) to source fresh flowers sustainably and responsibly before creating beautiful flower and plant arrangements in-house. The bouquets are available for next-day nationwide delivery (and same-day delivery in New York City and Washington, D.C.) for convenient gift-giving. They’ll arrive in a tall cardboard box that keeps the stems fresh and upright for a seamless delivery.
Right now, you can order in advance so the perfect arrangement gets to your valentine, your galentine, or yourself by February 14. And, if you use our exclusive promo code, LOVE15, you can save 15% off your entire order through Valentine’s Day.
This bright bouquet is brimming with delphiniums, lisianthus, roses, and asters in orange, pink, and blue hues. It’s a cheerful arrangement fit for a celebration. Choose to add a white or clear glass vase to your order or display the blooms in your own vessel. Each arrangement comes with easy care tips to keep the flowers fresh for as long as possible.
