Sending someone unexpected flowers straight to their door is bound to brighten up their day - and it doesn’t have to break the bank either. 

To save you browsing time, we’ve scoured some affordable online flower suppliers.

1.   Home Bargains

Surprisingly, Home Bargains has a selection of affordable bouquets which you can order online. Their flowers and plants start at £10.99 and they can be upgraded in size for an additional £5 or £10. Free standard 1–2 day delivery is included in the price, or £2.95 to guarantee next-day delivery. They don’t have any letterbox flowers, but you can add a message and send them directly to your recipient’s address.  

2. Bunches

Since 1989, Bunches has been selling flowers and giving a portion of their profits to charity. The cheapest flowers start at £16, which gets you a box of 12 classic carnations. Their letterbox flowers start at £25.

There’s no charge for standard next-day delivery on any of their flowers. They also have a loyalty programme which gives you 5p worth of points for every £1 spent. So, if you spend £30, you’ll get £1.50 worth of points. Regular flower buyers will see this add up, and your points are valid for two years.

3. Bloom & Wild

Free next-day delivery is standard with Bloom & Wild, although you can pay more if you’d like delivery by courier. You can get letterbox flowers delivered for £13 - saving £10 off the normal price. Bloom & Wild are big on sustainability as well. They offset the carbon that’s emitted for every bouquet delivered, and their letterbox packaging is now 100% recyclable.

If you refer a friend, you’ll both be credited with £10 when they make their first order.

4. Flying Flowers

It’s always nice to see the price you’ll pay, and with Flying Flower’s easy to use the website, every bouquet includes free 1st class delivery and a seven-day freshness guarantee. The cheapest flowers start at £19.99 but you can also shop for reduced flowers. You can get scented bouquets or some with chocolates included. Their letterbox flowers start at £19.99 and include some free chocs as well!

5. Moonpig

Personalised cards are not the only thing you can get at Moonpig. You can now send flowers and plants with them as well. Their bouquets start at £18 plus delivery (which starts at £2.99), and many of them are packaged in gift boxes that will fit through the letterbox if the recipient is out. They have a good selection of fresh and dried flowers as well.

6. Funky Pigeon

Funky Pigeon doesn’t just sell cards either. Their flowers start at £19.99 and if you spend £30 or more, you’ll get free delivery too. They also sell letterbox flowers, dried flowers, and plants, and can deliver seven days a week.

7. eFlorist

Standard delivery is £5.99 with eFlorist, but bouquet prices start at £12.99 for a bunch of lilies including a free gift of Guylian chocolates. Delivery is generally available six days a week, but some flowers can be delivered on Sundays. They’ve got a good selection of flowers for under £30 and new customers can get 10% off their first order by signing up for their newsletter.

8. Next

Next surprisingly also has a decent variety of flowers starting at £20 with free delivery. They sell letterbox bouquets, and for something a bit different you can buy flowers in wooden crates, vases and even jugs. You can choose flowers based on occasion, or you can get a monthly subscription where you or your recipient will get a new bunch every month.
