Sending Flowers to Men

Ladies are no longer the only ones whom love receiving flowers. 60% of men surveyed by the Society of American Florists admitted that they would like to receive flowers on Valentines Day. Now, before you ring up an order of 99 red roses, follow this guide to choose a floral arrangement that even Mars the God of War would approve:

Think back to the times when you would love to receive flowers: on your birthday, on special anniversaries, during down times, after a job promotion… there you have it.
There are no hard and fast rules about what colours are appropriate for each gender but unless you are absolutely very sure that he is perfectly fine with pink and purple (even if he is absolutely secure about his masculinity, it is probably wise to add in several masculine-coloured blooms), stray away from effeminate colours like pastels, pinks and purples. There is no need to settle for the fail-safe blue, though. Choose, instead, flowers in strong, vivid and monochromatic hues like bright yellow, intense orange, fiery red and royal gold.
What types of flowers to you send to a man ?
Like women, just about any kind of flowers – roses, tulips, lilies, sunflowers, orchids etc – are bound to touch even an alpha male. But the kinds that really appeal to them are flowers that are “sturdy” and “full of personality” like the angular birds of paradise, anthuriums or orchids.
◦Floral Arrangement
Skip the fluffy big bouquets and head straight for the exotic, tropical or contemporary arrangements in linear or angular compositions. If this is your first time giving your man flowers, you can play it safe with a flower/plant dish that he can place on his desk at work or on his coffee table.
◦Personal Touches
Incorporating his hobbies and interests into his floral gift will definitely earn you brownie points. If your man is into automotive, add in a car magazine. If he is a soccer fan, choose flowers in his team's colours. If he is a game freak, insert a few video games that he had been hinting at. You get the idea.

Last but not least, When ordering from your florist for delivery to the man of your life, be sure to let them know its for a male. The designer will know not to add a pink or purple bow and to make the arrangement as masculine and exotic as possible.
