Sure, we’ve already rounded up the best UK flower delivery services and dipped deep into the trendy world of dried flowers, but letterbox flowers are something of a specialty.

The best letterbox flowers can be ordered with next day delivery, so if you leave your shopping for beautiful flowers to the very last minute (oops!), you don’t have to worry. Also, since most mailbox flowers come in a button to save space in the box, they will last quite a long time. Not just five days. We’re talking over two weeks, in many cases. A gift that tough.

Are there any downsides to ordering mailbox flowers as opposed to their pre-arranged counterparts? Not really, to be honest, apart from the fact that they don’t come in water, which means they’ll need to be pruned and put in a pretty sharp vase after delivery. They can also arrive a little flaccid, but don’t worry, they’ll straighten up as soon as you give them a good drink.
