It’s February 11 and you want to send a bouquet of fabulous flowers to your sweetie, so you head to your favorite flower delivery website and … $80 for a dozen roses? A $25 rush delivery fee? Suddenly you’re contemplating whether this relationship is worth it. (Kidding). But there is a better option — turns out grocery delivery service Instacart is the ultimate Valentine’s Day hack to send beautiful and high-quality yet reasonably-priced flowers fast (same day, in as fast as an hour), to anyone, anywhere in the country.

With Instacart, you’ll likely spend upwards of 50% less on high-quality flowers compared to specialty flower delivery sites.

Moreover, some retailers on the Instacart marketplace are even running Valentine’s flower deals that you can take advantage of — for example, you won’t find a better deal on roses than ALDI’s half dozen for less than $5!

Sending flowers and treats to your Valentine couldn’t be easier. Just log onto your Instacart account, enter your recipient’s address, choose a store in their area, and purchase flowers and treats to be delivered to them that same day, or schedule for a later date. When you check out, write your shopper a note to let your Valentine know the special delivery is from you.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
