Romance is in the air in Palm Beach Gardens, which means Valentine’s Day is nearly here! If you’re still wondering what to get your husband or boyfriend for Valentine’s Day this year, our florists at Flower Kingdom recommend seriously considering a floral arrangement or a garden of living plants.
Are Flowers Really an Appropriate Valentine’s Gift for Him?
Although you might not believe it, a floral arrangement or a live plant is actually a wonderful choice for men on Valentine’s Day. They like to receive these types of gifts just as much as women, and we’re delivering more and more flowers to men on Valentine’s Day every year. Plus, research has shown that giving flowers to men can make them more open and communicative. Men who receive flowers, converse more openly, make better eye contact, and tend to stand closer to those around them. So, if you’re hoping to enjoy a truly intimate holiday this year, we recommend giving flowers.
Top Choices in Valentine’s Day Gifts for Men
1. Money Tree
Money trees are leafy green plants with twisted trunks that resemble miniature trees. They’re wonderful for purifying the air, and they’re also said to bring prosperity and good fortune. This money tree rises up from a sleek container featuring accent stones and moss, which come together to create a miniature, peaceful landscape.
Orchids are one of our favorite plants to give as a gift to any recipient. They have alluring blooms and are relatively easy to care for. For men, we typically recommend all-white Phalaenopsis orchids, instead of those that bloom in shades of pink and purple. An orchid’s exotic beauty will remind your beau of your unique beauty every time he witnesses it in bloom, which should occur every year during the winter.
Peaceful Zen Garden
Succulents are the perfect gift for a busy guy because, other than a sunny location, they require minimal care. This Peaceful Zen Garden features a variety of succulents, towering lucky bamboo, and a contemporary planter that’ll look great in any office or home.
4. Tropical Flowers
Thanks to their fiery colors, interesting textures, and strange shapes, tropical flowers tend to pop up in the more contemporary, modern-looking floral designs that men always seem to love most. Our Tropical Bliss arrangement, for example, creates interesting lines with bromeliad blooms and palm which are anchored by a burst of orange, yellow, and red flowers at the base.
Red Reveal Bouquet
5. Red Roses
Red roses are a Valentine’s classic because they symbolize romantic love. For a man, we recommend presenting them in a slightly unexpected way. For example, our Red Reveal Bouquet pairs red roses with red Gerbera daisies and alstroemeria, creating a lovely monochrome design that’ll make your beau’s heart beat fast.
How to Choose a Plant or Bouquet for Your Beau on Valentine’s Day
You might be surprised when shopping for your husband or boyfriend at the number of floral options you actually find. Choosing the right one for your guy can be a bit intimidating, if you’re not sure where to start.
If you’re looking for a floral arrangement, we recommend first considering those with roses or designs that incorporate tropical flowers like lilies, orchids, protea, and birds of paradise. It’s typically best to avoid pastel hues and stick with vibrant shades of red, blue, orange, and yellow, instead. If you’re looking for a plant, our favorites for men include ivy, pothos, lucky bamboo, money plants, and orchids.
If you simply aren’t sure what to pick for your guy, don’t worry! Our expert florists at Flower Kingdom are here to help. Whether you order online, over the phone, or in person, we’ll provide you with personalized recommendations to make sure you find a lovely design or healthy plant to make Valentine’s Day extra-sweet for your sweetheart.
