Is It Really Appropriate to Get a Guy Flowers for Valentine’s Day?
Yes, yes, and yes! In this day and age, men truly appreciate and enjoy receiving both flowers and live plants from their loved ones. They show that you care and that you’re thinking of them, which is an important message to communicate clearly. Plus, research has actually shown that giving flowers to men can make them more open and communicative. It improves their eye contact and also leads them to stand more closely to their loved ones. So, if you’re hoping to have a magically intimate Valentine’s Day with your honey, then we highly recommend gifting an attractive floral arrangement.
Our Top Flower and Plant Picks for Guys on Valentine’s
’65 Ford Mustang Bouquet
1. Choose a Classic
What guy doesn’t love a classic beauty? And beauty doesn’t get more classic than a manly bouquet arranged inside a cherry red ’65 Ford Mustang. This design features a cheerful arrangement of blooms in bright yellow, red, blue, and white, plus a miniature mustang that your guy will enjoy for years to come.
2. Lucky Bamboo
Bamboo is said to bring good luck, and this Bamboo Getaway arrangement is sure to have your man feeling especially lucky when he receives it as a gift from you! In this compact arrangement, bamboo spires rise above a cluster of tropical flowers in fiery hues like protea and lilies.
3. Romantic Roses
Red roses are a classic for Valentine’s Day because they symbolize romantic love. They’re the perfect flower for a male or female recipient, but for men, we recommend choosing a rose arrangement, like our Rose Oasis, which highlights roses in a unique and modern way.
Tropical Bliss Bouquet
4. Contemporary Design
Rather than looking like flurries or bursts of flowers, more masculine-looking floral arrangements feature high-design and a contemporary feel. Our Tropical Bliss Bouquet uses a variety of tropical flowers to create the perfect marriage of all these modern elements. With dashes and splashes of color, this bouquet feels smart and sophisticated and will look impressive in the home or office.
5. Clean Lines
A compact floral design featuring strong, clean lines and elements is the perfect choice for a man on Valentine’s Day. Our Fantasy Found arrangement has an impressive vertical lines and upward movement achieved with towering bamboo, a swirl of palm, and a column of red flowers which seem to splash upward from the design’s contemporary cube container.
How to Choose Flowers for Your Man for Valentine’s Day
When shopping for flowers or plants for a man, you’ll have a bigger selection than you might expect. We recommend sticking with bright, bold colors like red, orange, blue, and purple. Designs incorporating roses or tropical flowers like birds of paradise and protea are great choices, as these bouquets tend to be most appropriate for a male recipient. If you’re looking for a living plant, you really can’t go wrong. Some of our favorites include peace lilies, dish gardens, bromeliads, and succulents.
If you’re not sure what to pick, our experts at Durocher Florist can provide you with personalized recommendations to help you choose something that will best fit his personality. Whether you order online, over the phone, or in person, we’re here to make sure you have wonderful Valentine’s Day with your sweetheart!
