“Loved these gorgeous bouquets from The Bouqs Co.! They were delivered beautifully packaged and were easy to place in their vases.

“I used Instacart to deliver some birthday treats from Kroger to my grandmother who lives in another state. I just asked them to pick up a pretty birthday bouquet and even with a big tip, it was so much cheaper. My grandma loved it!”

“I used Instacart to order flowers from Costco to send to my sister. I asked the shopper on my notes to message me a picture of the color selection available so I could let them know my preference. It worked great! My sister was happy with the roses and she’s even growing her own out of the same bouquet!”

    Flowers are so expensive and only last one week maybe two if lucky. Instead give someone flowers for there garden or a plant.

    • PrincessMom

      We give my MIL a plant for Mother’s Day but then we send a bouquet for her birthday because it’s too cold out to plant anything and they have limited space for indoor plants. It works out well that she gets something to brighten up the house when the gardens outside are winter drab. 🙂

    • MommySpendsLess

      Casey – that’s a good idea if the person has the right spot for them and a green thumb. I love plants but under my care the potted ones won’t live much longer than the cut bouquets. I agree with your premise that, while beautiful and thoughtful, flowers are expensive for what you get out of them. I almost feel guilty whenever my mom sends me flowers. I’d rather have a cuddly blanket, kitchen gadget, faux plant, etc. because they’ll last for years and I can think of the giver every time I see/use them.

    • Savermom

      I don’t want to be given a plant. I don’t want to take care of one. I would be thrilled to get flowers once in a while!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thank you for sharing, Patti! I love fiddle leaf plants!

      • KKStanley

        I thought I’d check out the Amazon site for plants so I clicked on the link that Patti posted above. I was so excited to check them out until I was reading the reviews.
        They were pretty bad reviews, except for a few. Mostly, complaints about receiving plants that were rotting, small in size and damaged. That may not be a great choice for plants from what could see.

  2. susan-5

    Aldis usually has some great deals on Valentine’s flowers.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thank you!

    • Beverly

      I was just about to comment about the same thing! My local Aldi has nice and cheap (about $4) bouquets year round. I often remove the plastic and them in a vase from the dollar store or a thrift shop.

  3. acgold

    Thank you H2S, after seeing a post here we used Costco to send roses. They were beautiful. We have ordered a few times for various occasions, due to the affordability. They come perfect and last about 2 weeks with changing the water. There are many colors available. The people and places we sent them to do not have local florists to support.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      We sure appreciate your comment, acgold! I’ve had so much luck with the Costco roses, too! I love that they last several weeks, but even more the all the beautiful colors!

      • Csandst1

        Costco won’t deliver flowers Friday through Monday.

        • Atank

          I sent my mom flowers from Costco and she got them yesterday

  4. Sbhallinan

    I love having flowers weekly in my house, but it can get pricey. I just picked up some cheap flowers at Trader Joe’s yesterday and a really cute plant. All for under $15. Whole Foods often has really pretty affordable flowers and plants too, just FYI. Oh and plants from Ikea! My husband thinks I’m crazy, you should see my plant collection🤣. My new thing is clipping my own succulents to make mixed pots, it’s so fun and they are really pretty.

    • K. Nazario

      Ive been wanting to try! Do you use a rooting compound or just stick them in soil?

      • Sbhallinan

        You clip them, let the stems dry for a day and then just stick them in soil and water them a little. Put them in a spot that gets good sun and within 1-2 weeks or so they start to get roots. Water a little every week and until established. Then 1-2x a month after that. I have never had it not work!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      You sound really talented! Making your own mixed pots is a really affordable way to add to your plant collection. I am like you and love having fresh flowers weekly! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Lattemommy

    Just wanted to add that Wegmans has amazingly affordable flowers that last for weeks!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Thank you!

  6. Brit

    Also voting Whole Foods… have not tried Wegmans but believe that would be a likely place… affordability try Sam’s for roses or Costco. Does BJs carry anything? I suprised no one mentioned Lidl..while I generally in prefer Aldi for other items, Lidl has some $3 bouquets. I think this is the perfect time to mention that you can buy yourself flowers! You can share that with your daughters…and of course mention to your sons that a reasonably priced flower gift is a kind gesture 🙂 I am sure we have all dated someone at sometime in our lives that just didn’t get what the big deal was about flowers bc “they die anyway.” Lol! You don’t have to spend $80 on an arrangement. Thanks H2S for the informative post 🙂

  7. Betsy

    We swear by Trader Joes for flowers. Always a great selection and the best prices. Of course, now we have to wait in line to get in so there’s that- but still worth it!

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      I agree! They have such a nice selection to brighten up a home and they last a long time!

  8. Jennifer

    Thank you so much. Just used Costco to send my Grandma Valentines flowers. I haven’t gotten to hug her in over a year due to Covid. She lives in a nursing home in Queens, NY. I’m sure these will bring a smile to her face.

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Aw, love this! I’m so glad we were able to help you send a smile.

      • Jennifer


  9. Ms

    Did enyone tried instacart for flower delivery?

  10. Heather

    Great I will make a purchase!

  11. ienotaryservices

    In reply to Ms I used instacart to order flower from Costco to send to my sister I asked the shopper on my notes to message me a picture of the color selection available so I could let them know my preference, it worked great ! My sister was happy with the roses and she’s even growing her own out of the same bouquet!!

    • Ms

      Thank you ! I would give it a try too

  12. Sarah

    I have an amazing bargain grocery store locally that sells huge beautiful bouquets of flowers for $.99 or $1.99… seriously they are leftovers from walmart or other stores that were usually $10- $20. I literally tell my husband not to bother buying me any flowers because I get better bouquets through that store. They last like 1 1/2 weeks ❤️ The money goes back locally to the community too

  13. JanaGad

    Has anyone tried using a Groupon and go through Rakuten to buy flowers?

  14. kathy

    ALDI usually has bouquets by the registers for cheap $3.99 or $4.99.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the helpful tip, Kathy!

  15. Monique

    Smiths (Kroger) marks their flowers down often and sometimes you can get flowers in a vase for less than $5 🙂 I’ve gotten roses for $1.99 not in vase

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Great deal, Monique! Thanks for sharing!

  16. Katie

    I have used Farmgirl Flowers several times now. They have had simply stunning arrangements, some that ship for free. They are draw dropping arrangements especially the burlap ones. They also have an incredible customer service. We were once sent the right flowers but wrong colors, and they sent an entire replacement bouquet. If sending flowers, this is who I have used for the last year. Always gets rave reviews.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      OH awesome! Thanks so much for commenting! Super glad to hear what a great experience you’ve had ordering from them!

  17. runnergirl838

    I highly suggest finding a local florist. Ask if they work within any price point. I have a small boutique florist who does this for me. It’s a wonderful experience all around – I bring her a mason jar, suggest a color theme and my price point. She arranges it right in front of me. Best $20-$25 I’ve ever spent on a gorgeous bouquet! I do this every year outside of the major floral holidays (Valentine’s Day and Mothers Day).

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      What a great idea! Thanks so much for that suggestion! 🤗💖

  18. Betsy

    My husband knows to go to Trader Joes for flowers- so much more for your money! He’s gotten flowers from local florists in the past and they’ve never been as fresh as TJ’s and they were twice the price!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh wow! Thanks for the feedback, Betsy! Good to know that Trader Joes flowers have been so nice!

  19. Blue

    Sams Club has great flower for a decent price.

    • Sunny

      I agree. And their flowers last very long time. You get a good size bouquet too.

      • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

        Thank you, Blue & Sunny!

      • johnson16

        Just ordered some mother day flowers! Great deal!

  20. JJ

    I splurged this year and bought 50 yellow roses from Costco for under $60. They were fresh from Colombia and I received them today. I also ordered 24 roses from Bouqs and was impressed. They shipped from Ecuador. I’ve been laying low due to the variant so it’s nice having 4 vases of beautiful flowers in my apartment.

    I definitely get why I pay florists though! It was a lot of work trimming nearly 75 roses. 🤣

  21. Patricia Goff

    I got used to flowers living overseas because they were so cheap (off base). I used to go to the German stores or farmers market and get bundles for a few dollars. Now I buy them myself when I see them discounted in stores. I send my mother some from Aldi (overseas) a few times a year. I send her caregiver some too so she knows how much we appreciate her.

  22. Monica

    Wood flowers are amazing too! No care is required. They can be painted any color, won’t wilt and make a great keepsake for years to come. Curated Chaos Designs has some super cute options! Tinyurl.com/CuratedChaosDesigns

  23. Kat

    I used Instacart to deliver some birthday treats from Kroger to my grandmother who lives in another state. I Just asked them to pick up a pretty birthday bouquet and even with a big tip it was soo much cheaper. My grandma loved it.

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      That’s so smart, Kat!! Great suggestion!

  24. JamieD89

    Publix flowers are so cheap and last FOREVER. The only thing I go into Publix for is flowers. They also usually have large cheap vases as well that you can purchase and make your own arrangements.

  25. Huff

    Oh the horror of buying flowers from Bouqs! Bought a Groupon for $35 to get a bouquet of $65. Saved $30, great! Now, go to buy a $65 bouquet, lots of fancy ones that qualify but maybe 12 to 15 stalks of flowers in $65. You want something that looks decent, maybe 20 to 22 stalk, add another 25 bucks. 32 to 35 stalks, another 25 bucks. Then shipping, another 15 to 25 bucks.

    Then customer service….sigh! No thank you Bouqs…my business will be taken to anywhere else but to you!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SO sorry to hear that, Huff. ❤️Thanks for sharing your experience with us.

  26. Amber

    Yesss! Instacart is the way to go. I have done this a few times and it’s a win.
