How to Save on Flower Delivery this Holiday Season?


Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner, which means it’s time to start thinking about how you can save money on your flower delivery this holiday season. We all know that sending flowers is more expensive than other gift-giving options available to us, but there are ways that we can save money without sacrificing quality or quantity of what we send. With these tips, I hope you will be able to give flowers to those who matter most in your life!

Order in advance.

If you want to give flowers, order them in advance. Ordering early will ensure that you get the best deals and the best selection of flowers. Also, ordering in advance can mean avoiding delivery delays on December 25th!

Choose a local florist.

Another way to save on your flower delivery is by choosing a local florist. When you buy flowers online, you’re not only buying the flower arrangement itself, but also paying extra for shipping and handling. If you choose a local florist and go in-person to pick up your order, there will be no shipping costs involved at all! This can save money on both ends of the transaction: if they are selling their arrangements at wholesale prices, then they’ll probably pass some of those savings along in their prices; if they aren’t selling their arrangements at wholesale prices (or even just slightly below), then going in person will guarantee that you don’t pay any more than necessary—and possibly even less than what it would have cost if purchased from an online retailer like Amazon or eBay.

Local florists also tend to have better selection when compared with big box stores or mail order companies because they have access to fresh flowers every day—they can cut them up into bouquets whenever needed instead of having them sit around for weeks before being used as part of another customer’s purchase decision process. And finally…

Buy flowers in bulk.

The cost of flowers can add up quickly, especially if you’re buying them for a special occasion. The best way to save money on flowers is to buy them in bulk. You don’t have to order all of your flowers at once—you can do it over time and spread out the cost, but it’s worth checking out stores or websites that sell flower bundles because they often have deals that allow you to get a discount on large orders.

Buying your flowers in advance will help ensure that they don’t wilt before delivery day as well as give you more flexibility when choosing which ones go where (and how many). If possible, choose a local florist who offers free delivery or reduced rates on same-day pick-ups so you can avoid paying extra fees for shipping services. If you need help finding one near where most of your friends live then just ask around!

Another great way to save money is by sending group gifts instead of individual ones; this way everyone involved only needs one bouquet instead of two or three separate ones (which would otherwise cost more since each person would need their own bouquet). Plus: everyone gets something nice without being stuck with something they didn’t want! It’s also nice because the recipient feels like part of the family flower plan

Send a group gift.

Another option is to send a group gift, which can be done through several different services. Group gifting allows you to send flowers to multiple people at once and then split the cost between all of them. This is also a great way to send flowers that are meant for different people in one order and pay less overall!

Group gifting sites include:

  • Flower Messenger: You can create an account or use Facebook connect; this site will allow you to choose from a variety of arrangements, select the delivery date and time frame, then enter the recipient’s name and address as well as any special instructions (like “Happy Birthday!”).

Flowers are delivered by courier service.

Become part of the family flower plan.

If you’re not already part of a family flower plan, it’s easy to get started. All you need to do is:

  • Sign up online or call 1-800-FLOWERS (1-800-356-9377).
  • Provide your credit card or PayPal information and billing address.
  • Select the types of flowers you want delivered—you can choose from roses and tulips, or maybe even a fruit bouquet! You can even add chocolates or other sweet treats if you’d like them in addition to the flowers.

If at any point in time, you want to cancel your subscription, just log into your account on the website where it was created and find a way to cancel there too _(ahem_). If this blog has convinced you that this is something worth doing for yourself or someone else who needs some extra love during this holiday season, go ahead and give us a call at 1-800-FLOWERS (1-800-356-9377) today!

There are many ways to save money on your flower delivery this holiday season so you can focus on giving flowers to those who matter most to you.

Here is how:

  • Order in advance – Buying flowers in advance means that the florist doesn’t need to rush your order, which will result in lower prices for you. Many florists offer discounts if you place an order a few weeks before Christmas and New Year’s Eve, so plan ahead! This will also help ensure that any last-minute changes or substitutions can be made smoothly before the big day arrives. If there’s no rush, just keep one eye peeled on deals through December 20th—you may find some great savings!
  • Choose a local florist – Local florists tend to have more experience with local weather patterns than larger companies do (since they have more control over their deliveries), so they can give better predictions about when certain types of flowers will arrive at their destination safely (which helps avoid unnecessary delays). Plus, if there is an issue with something like damage during transit or delivery time changes due to inclement weather conditions then it’s easier for them since they know exactly where everything is going without having too much information about what happened along the way – allowing them more control over resolving any problems quickly without compromising quality standards set by other suppliers.”
