Sending Flowers to a Man

Men love to get flowers for the same reason they send them – to be recognized. Everyone likes to feel special.

A good indicator of when it might be appropriate to send flowers would be to consider his favorite occasions for sending them. Does he send flowers for birthdays, or perhaps as a thank you? Don’t forget that no reason is often the best reason!

Just as women love receiving flowers for no reason at all, a surprise floral gift will surely catch his attention too.

The Best Designs and Colors for Men

  • Men are stimulated by color and are visually oriented. Research shows that men prefer vivid colors such as yellow, orange and red.
  • Flower arrangements that are contemporary, linear styles or natural styles are best. Other favorites might include green or flowering plants.
  • Tell your florist that you want flowers for a man and ask for specific suggestions. If your recipient has a hobby, perhaps you could highlight that. For example, if he is a golfer, tuck in a box of golf balls. If he is into cars, add an auto magazine or two. Your florist can offer creative suggestions for flowers that are sure to please.
