Romance is in the air in Wilmington, which must mean that Valentine’s Day is almost here! If you’re not sure what to get your husband or boyfriend for Valentine’s Day this year, our romance experts at Julia’s Florist highly recommend flowers — and we’re not just saying that because we’re florists!
Why You Should Give Your Guy Flowers for Valentine’s Day
Men actually enjoy receiving flowers just as much as women. Plus, studies have shown that men who receive flowers become more open and communicative. They also make better eye contact and tend to stand in closer proximity to those around them. So, basically, if you want to have an intimately special Valentine’s Day with your significant other, science says you should give him flowers.
The Best Flowers for Men on Valentine’s Day
1. Pleasing Palettes
If your main man leads a hectic life, then give him a floral arrangement that’ll make him feel relaxed and calm. One way to create tranquil vibes with flowers is to focus on a color palette that’s easy on the eyes. The wash of pale blues, yellows, and seafoam greens in our Seaside Blooms bouquet create a feeling that’s just like a quiet walk on the beach.
2. Tropical Vibes
Tropical flowers like birds of paradise, lilies, orchids, and anthuriums bloom in fiery colors and have interesting shapes and textures. These unique blooms lend themselves perfectly to the contemporary designs that men tend to prefer. Our Paradise Found design makes a strong visual statement while delivering a touch of a tropical island vibe.
If your man barely has time for a lunch break during his busy days, then a low-maintenance option is perfect. We recommend a succulent garden that features a variety of plants but requires minimal care. Your guy will appreciate the beauty of the plants and your thoughtfulness in selecting something that doesn’t require much of his time to survive.
Plant-Blooming Peace Lily
4. Peaceful Plants
Peace lilies are absolutely gorgeous green plants that will bloom periodically for your guy to enjoy again and again. In between blooms, these plants simply burst with lush, green foliage. Easy to care for, your special someone will love thinking of you every time he admires his gorgeous lily.
Custom Tall Travel Mug
5. Keepsake Containers
Fun keepsake containers are a great way to give a floral gift that can be enjoyed for years to come. This design features bright pops of color to add a splash of cheer to your man’s holiday and a nifty, personalized travel mug that he can use every day on his way to work.
How to Select Flowers for Your Man on Valentine’s Day
When choosing flowers for your guy, it’s important to consider his style and personality. In general, we recommend avoiding bouquets with too much pink, when you’re shopping for a man — unless pink happens to be his favorite color. Typically, bouquets featuring primary colors, jewel tones, or monochrome palettes are best. When in doubt, look for a sleek and compact design or choose a low-maintenance potted plant.
If you still aren’t sure what sort of flowers or type of plant you should pick for your boyfriend or husband for Valentine’s Day, don’t worry! Our experts at Julia’s Florist are always here to help.
