Some of the Best Valentine’s Gifts for Men from Our Flower Shop
Roses are an excellent choice for both men and women. Traditionally, red roses are popularly gifted on Valentine’s Day because they symbolize romantic love. Our Phoenix Flame design features a combination of fiery orange and yellow roses, which symbolize passion and friendship. Go ahead and show him how you feel with roses this year.
2. Tropical Flowers
Tropical flowers like protea, birds of paradise, red ginger, anthurium, and orchids bloom in fiery colors, interesting shapes, and strange textures that look great in the types of modern floral designs men tend to love. In our Beautiful Birds design, tangerine birds of paradise take flight among an array of orange and purple flowers.
Modern Day Romance
3. Compact Designs
Men also like more compact designs which are usually less frilly than traditional arrangements. Our Modern Day Romance design features bamboo arches, orange roses and protea blooms, and bright-green hypericum berries in a rustic, birch container. Your guy will proudly display this quaint, yet stylish design in his home or office.
If your man has a busy schedule, then succulents are the perfect low-maintenance gift for him. Spring for a succulent garden which includes a diverse selection of plants in an attractive container.
Small Dish Garden
5. Dish Gardens
If you’re not sure your husband or boyfriend will fully embrace a floral arrangement, then a dish garden full of non-blooming green plants is a perfect choice. This design will add a bit of tranquility to his environment, while also cleansing the air and replenishing the oxygen.
Why Flowers Make the Best Valentine’s Day Gifts for Men, According to Science
If you think flowers seem like a strange gift for a man, think again. Men actually enjoy receiving flowers just like women, and science actually says that they could help improve your Valentine’s Day experience. How so? Studies have shown that men who receive flowers can become more communicative and open, in addition to holding eye contact and standing closer to those around them. As a result, men become better at intimacy. So, if you’re hoping to have a few special moments this holiday, you should seriously consider giving your man flowers.
Picking a Perfect Bouquet for Your Guy
At first, shopping for a man’s floral arrangement can feel like a daunting task, but you’ll quickly see that there are plenty of designs to choose from. We recommend looking for a floral arrangement that doesn’t feel overly feminine. We suggest avoiding pastels or overly soft colors, opting instead for vibrant, saturated hues like greens, yellows, oranges, blues, and reds. If you think your husband or boyfriend would prefer a living plant, choosing one that’s simple to care for is essential. Succulents, snake plants, Dracaena, ZZ plants, and Chinese evergreens are all excellent choices.
If you don’t feel confident about selecting a design for your guy on your own, don’t worry! Our florists at VanderSalm’s Flowershop & Garden Center are always happy to help. Whether you order in person, over the phone, or online, we’ll provide you with expert advice and personalized recommendations to make sure you pick the perfect bouquet or plant for your beau this Valentine’s Day.
