Flower delivery in Toronto is nothing new; this long-standing concept has undoubtedly prevented countless fights over forgotten birthdays and anniversaries. But now, it's even easier to impress your loved ones thanks to startups that'll deliver fresh blooms to you or your loved ones quickly.
From artisanal bouquets wrapped in denim and twine to gold-embossed roses, here are some of the companies trying to up Toronto's flower game.
Founded by childhood "besties" Michael Smaye and Raphi Aronowicz, Tonic Blooms promises delivery in two hours or less. Smaye and Aronowicz offer bouquets - named after women in their lives - succulents as well as colourful truffles from Toronto chef Brandon Olsen.
Flowers in the Box
When ordering online from Flowers in the Box, you can expect a delivery within approximately four hours. This local business launched in October 2015, but its owners have more than 30 years in the industry. You can grab bouquets starting at $40 or spring for the $120 "Charming Flower Box," which includes roses, chocolate and mini macarons from Butter Avenue.
If candy hearts aren't doing it for you, Unique Roses will print a sweet, little message on a Ecuadorian rose for you. While you won't receive these gold-embossed roses immediately, managing director Wasim Qureshi says his company can hand deliver them - if you're in the GTA - within 24 hours.
