Flowers make a wonderful addition to any special occasion and a thoughtful gift for a loved one. Beautiful arrangements consisting of bright and sweet-smelling flowers can never go out of style, especially when it brings a smile to someone’s face. Imagine how ecstatic you’d be upon receiving a vibrant sunflower bouquet on the day of your graduation!
With flowers, you don’t have to spend a fortune to impress your receiver! Even though Circuit Breaker is over, Singaporeans are still encouraged to limit our physical interactions as much as possible. So, the concept of on-demand flower delivery has undoubtedly eased the process of having fresh blooms delivered straight to someone’s doorstep as a surprise. As there are many florists available in Singapore, here are some tips to keep in mind when picking a good and reliable flower shop!
1. Easy navigation on the website
Aside from the visual appeal, the website should both be easy to navigate and understand. Are there clear headers for you to go from one page to another without much of a hassle? Should you require additional assistance, did they state how they can be contacted?
For added credibility, the best online florist will also have a blog that serves to provide information to aid you as you make decisions on the type of flowers you want to purchase. Altogether, these are good indicators of a company that has invested the time and effort to ease and enhance the user’s overall experience on their website.
2. Versatile and updated list of options
An online floral shop that offers floral arrangements and services catering to a wide range of occasions is also an excellent choice! As flowers can be given on any occasions, versatility is essential as it shows the florist’s ability to accommodate all flower needs.
3. Efficient customer service
As you’re ordering flowers online, you’d want to deal with a florist who is trustworthy and dedicated to delivering the best services. From their customer service offered, you can get a good gauge of their commitment to quality in both their products and services.
If it’s your first-time buying flowers online, the thought of picking the right floral arrangement and bouquet can be quite confusing. Chat with their florist to clear any of your doubts. If you get satisfactory answers, then they’re probably someone you can trust.
4. Read online reviews and check out their portfolio
Reading reviews from people who have personally engaged with a florist’s service gives you an insight into what they offer and if they’re trustworthy! Browse through their client portfolio and read through comments and reviews through online searches.
5. Personalisation options
When you want to gift a bouquet to someone, it would be great to consider their taste so you can have a bouquet personalised accordingly. Better yet, elevate the overall gift-giving experience by decorating the flower bouquet yourself!

Many would recommend comparing prices. While that’s a great tip, it shouldn’t be the only consideration for choosing your preferred florist. Justify the costs by the quality of flowers, occasion and floral arrangements.
Buying flowers online brings a range of benefits. Aside from sheer convenience, you get access to a variety of options at the best prices. So, we hope the tips we shared above will help!
