What's the difference between a bouquet and letterbox flowers?

A bouquet arrives prearranged so the recipient doesn't have to cut and arrange the stems of the flowers themselves. There are also options to include a vase with bouquets.

Letterbox flowers arrive in a box that's big enough to be posted through your letterbox, with each stem of flower laid next to each other. With letterbox flowers, the recipient will have to cut stems to fit their vase and arrange them. It also arrives with flower food, as the flowers may not be in full display or at their best upon delivery.
