With every passing year, the most mundane things — grocery shopping! Pharmacy runs! — seem to get a little bit easier. And now, even picking out the best flower bouquets for your girlfriend — and ensuring they actually arrive on time, at the right location, and are exactly what you ordered — can be done through Amazon.
There are plenty of things that can go wrong when ordering your S.O. a bouquet of flowers — check out these horror stories about online florist companies, if you're interested — but Amazon, on the other hand, is always fast and reliable, especially for last-minute orders.
The huge variety and affordable prices make ordering flowers through Amazon particularly appealing. Many of these bouquets are available via Prime, so you can order them in as little as two days in advance (a lot of the florists selling through Amazon provide free overnight delivery, too ). Last year, the e-retailer even offered free one and two-hour delivery on Valentine's Day. Plus, since you can read reviews from other customers, you'll be able to make sure the seller has a proven track record of delivering fresh, quality flowers.
So, bypass the jacked-up prices and general hassle this year, and order your flowers the easy way instead. And if you're not sure what kind of bouquet to get your girlfriend, we've gathered seven beautiful options you can't go wrong with, below.
