Flowers are a symbol of love and affection and all humans like to feel loved and cared for regardless of their sex. In recent studies, it has been shown that men love to receive flowers as much as women do. The attention indicated by getting flowers regardless of what the event is will definitely put a smile on that special person’s face. Whether it is your dad, brother, boyfriend, husband or friend, flowers are a great gift idea on several occasions. Valentine’s Day, Father’s day, Congratulations, Get-well-soon, Birthdays and Anniversaries are some of the best occasions to get a man flowers. But is giving a man flowers the same as giving a woman? What do you need to bear in mind when buying flowers for a man?
Men differ from women in that they are visual beings and tend to judge the quality of things by what they see. The best flowers to get a man therefore are those with vivid colours like yellow, gold, red and orange. Keep away from purple and pink flowers as much as possible unless the man in question is into these colours. Even if so, mixing in with masculine colours would be ideal in ensuring that the flowers are well received. A good bouquet that would suit any occasion for a man is the red kisses available on Freshflowers.com.au, which come in a manly black pack enclosing a dozen brilliant red roses.
Don’t be super girly
A flower arrangement that would please a woman could be met with resistance by a man. When sending a man flowers, settle for exotic or contemporary arrangements. Natural styles are better accepted than fluffy and big designs. Choose flower arrangements that exclude ribbons, bows or any other additional fluff. Simple arrangements are just as beautiful but will appeal more to a man. A phalaenopsis orchid in a glass vessel would be an excellent idea as orchids have strong shapes and the design is simple enough with no fluffy additions that would otherwise deem the arrangement too feminine.
Consider a plant
A plant always hits the mark in impressing the recipient, male and female and is perhaps a safe bet for a man. It also lasts a while longer, and can be displayed at work or at home. These make great housewarming gifts too, so opting to have orchids, pines or Poinsettia delivered would certainly be received well by a man. From the boardroom to the home, they won’t look out of place and may be a safer choice for those you’re a little less sure of what flowers to send.
What kinds of flowers appeal to men?
Just like women, any type would do but it is best to stick to sturdy flowers that are full of personality to impress. Authuriums, orchids and birds of paradise are great flower choices for any man but that is not to say that other types will not work. The best way to decide is to consult a florist before making any purchase. State clearly that you are looking for flowers for a man and they will surely help you choose the best.
