Bet he's happy he forked out $30.

There's nothing quite like receiving a beautiful bunch of fresh flowers.

While there are undoubtedly some grinches out there who will probably read this and grumble 'why would you pay for something that just ends up dead?' the same could be said of, gosh, we don't know, living life in general. So they should just shut it.

Bottom line: flowers are lovely. Receiving flowers is lovely. Even sending flowers feels lovely, simply because it's a lovely thing to do. Get it? LOVELY.

Where the novelty of sending flowers tends to rub off a bit is when you're whacked with the bill. Because let's face it, to have even a simple bouquet delivered only a short way away ends up being quite the costly exercise.

But it doesn't have to be. A number of innovative Aussie start-ups all over Australia are proving when it comes to flower deliveries, you don't have to break the bank. Here are some of our favourites.
