If you're looking to thank someone fast or are the type of gifter who can't be bothered with tracking packages, meet The Bouqs, a floral delivery service that we've been fans of for quite some time. Backed by chief floral designer Eric Buterbaugh (who just opened his own floral studio on Beverly), the LA-based company has just launched same-day delivery, offering standard bouquets ($60) and deluxe versions ($70) that will hit your giftee's doorstep in just a few hours.
"As a farm-to-table flower company, we're excited to be expanding our catalog to offer a locally designed product that is delivered as fast as two hours after ordering," explains CEO John Tabis.
Get to ordering your expedited eco-friendly stems here, and tell your East Coast friends that The Bouqs is coming for them soon: New York and Chicago services will be rolling out this July!
