I recently received a dozen roses from the nice people at Bouqs so I could do a Valentines Day Bouqs review. Bouqs appeared on Shark Tank in season five; they didn't get a deal, but they're selling a lot of flowers!
In case you forgot, Bouqs hand cuts flower orders right from the fields in Ecuador – on the side of a volcano! The advantage to this is the flowers you receive are much fresher than anything you'll find at a florist (unless they grow their own) or other online florists.
If you want the fresh-cut flowers, you need to give at least 7 days lead time. If you need overnight delivery, they have that option, but the real value of Bouqs is getting the freshest flowers.
With Valentines Day coming up, you should order now and schedule delivery so your Valentine gets the freshest flowers possible. While you're at it, do what I did and sign up for the Bouqs Concierge Service, that way you can schedule flower deliveries for all the special people in your life who love flowers. When you sign up, you get 15% off! Order Bouqs now for Valentines Day!
Valentines Day Bouqs: Roses
I ordered one dozen roses for this review. That costs $40. 2 dozen roses costs $50, 3 dozen costs $60. For online flowers, this is a very good price. The best part is, the flowers are so fresh, the roses will still be blooming a couple of weeks later. The picture at the top of the article is the Bouqs bouquet the day it arrived. The picture here to the right is the same bouquet one week later. The blooms are still tight and vibrant, the stems are strong, and there's no drooping at all.
The folks at Bouqs say “a week in is a great time to trim the stems, change water, & pack the blooms a bit tighter for support.” The last time I ordered Bouqs, I did this and they hung on for almost three weeks! Imagine what a hero you'll be when your loved one still has their Valentines Day Roses in March!
