When it comes to Valentine's Day, love is the greatest gift of all. But if you want to score extra points with your significant other, no harm can be done if you give them a stunning flower arrangement, too.

Even though we're in the final moments before Valentine's Day, there's still plenty of time to get a thoughtful bouquet delivered to your loved one's doorstep. And trust us, the generic arrangements at your local grocery store have nothing on these florals.

To prove our point and to help procrastinators feel fully prepared for Valentine's Day, ahead we've rounded up 15 gorgeous arrangements you can purchase right now that can be delivered within one day (or less).

These bouquets are so lovely, your S.O will think you've been planning this sweet surprise all year long. Don't worry, your secret is safe with us.


UrbanStems' mission is simple: Provide customers hand-picked, sustainable and modern floral arrangements. As a result, the bouquets not only last long, but also look as if they were cherry-picked from your favorite Instagram influencer's feed. They even have a Valentine's Day section to make the selection process even easier (but if your Valentine isn't a traditionalist, there's plenty of non-red and pink options that suit).

The real highlight is that many of the one-of-a-kind arrangements on the UrbanStems site are available for free next-day delivery (for orders made before 2 p.m. the day before) throughout the continental US. And if your loved ones reside in New York City or Washington, DC, you can even get your blooms delivered hand-delivered the same day.

Some traditional (and non-traditional) arrangements we're loving on the site now include:

The Majesty ($62;


The Amie ($170;


The Love Story ($165;



So you've really left your Valentine's Day flower shopping until the last minute. First things first, don't panic!

Flowers are FTD's bread and butter, and have been since the company's inception in 1910. While there's plenty of blooms available for same-day delivery (all of which you can check out here), if you're loved ones prefer ferns to florals, consider a potted plant instead. These greens can liven up kitchen tables, living rooms and even bedroom setups. Plus, potted plants are a more eco-friendly alternative to cut flowers.

So while FTD has a number of stunning flowers available for same-day delivery, we also suggest you consider their equally impressive assortment of plants. Some of our favorites include:

Large Comfort Planter ($115;


White Orchid Planter ($99;


Peace and Serenity Dishgarden ($67;
