7 tips for sending flowers

Sending flowers is a thoughtful way to show someone you care, but it can also be tricky to pick the right arrangement and get it delivered on time. 

Here are our top tips for sending flowers, whether you're looking for a last-minute gift or planning ahead for a special occasion.

Put in the work!

Do your research! Find out what your loved one likes, their favorite color, their preferred scents, everything! The personal touch this adds to your bouquet is what makes a difference. 

It’s best to include what you want to say in a card on the bouquet, along with a personal note or message about why you chose those particular flowers for them.

Honor the occasion 

Different flowers signify different emotions. Roses, for instance, symbolize love and beauty and are hence ideal for Valentine’s Day and anniversaries, while lilies symbolize innocence and purity, making them perfect for birthdays.

Choose long-lasting flowers 

You want to ensure the flowers will last through the shipping and still be fresh when they arrive. You also want your recipient to be able to enjoy their bouquet for the days to come. Roses, lilies, and delphiniums are good options. 


Don’t forget the allergies!

Flowers are lovely, allergies are not. Flowers like lilies, jasmine, dusty miller, and sunflowers have high pollen counts that may send your recipient into a fit of sneezing. Instead, choose flowers that are less pollen-heavy, like roses, carnations, and dahlias. 

Timing is key

Having a large bouquet of flowers delivered is a wonderful thing unless it shows up at the wrong time. Think about what the recipient will be doing when your flowers show up and whether they’ll be happy to see your flower bouquet. Buning’s same-day delivery service makes this considerably easier!

Make sure the delivery address and contact number are correct. This is especially important if you’re sending flowers to someone who lives in another country.
