Love is in the air in Webster, which means Valentine’s Day is nearly here! If you’re not sure what to get your husband or boyfriend for V-Day this year, our romance experts at Kittelberger Florist & Gifts are here to strongly recommend that you consider flowers (and we’re not just saying that because we’re florists).
Why Flowers Are a Great Idea for Your Guy on Valentine’s Day
Flowers are beautiful, they smell great, and men actually enjoy getting flowers just as much as women. Plus, science has actually shown that receiving flowers can make men more open and communicative. Men who receive flowers tend to make stronger eye contact and to position themselves in closer proximity to the people around them. So, if you’re dreaming up an intimate Valentine’s Day with your significant other, then flowers will help you make your dreams a reality.
The Best Floral Valentine’s Day Gifts for Men
1. Natural Designs
If your guy is the type to love a good nature walk, a day at the park, or even camping, then we recommend going for a natural design with organic lines and a wide variety of textures. Choose a fairly subdued color palette, like the one featured in our Au Naturale arrangement, to keep the romantic look from feeling overly frenzied.
2. Tropical Flowers
With their fiery hues, interesting textures, and unique shapes, tropical flowers typically lend themselves to the modernistic designs that men tend to favor. Our Orchid Whimsy design has a fresh take on the traditional tropical arrangement featuring orchids. These are displayed in a bed of pebbles and accented with protea.
Ceramic Dish Garden
3. Dish Gardens
Dish gardens are a gift that continues to give because your guy will be able to enjoy his for many years to come — as long as he gives it the right amount of love. Luckily, most dish gardens include plants that are easy to care for and that also do well in a variety of light conditions. With its diverse combination of blooming and non-blooming plants, our Ceramic Dish Garden will make the perfect addition to your sweetheart’s office or home.
4. Low-Maintenance Succulents
If your boyfriend or husband is someone who doesn’t have the luxury of free time, then we highly recommend choosing a garden of succulents that’ll require the absolute minimum when it comes to care. With minimum watering and maximum beauty, succulents make a wonderful choice for your special guy.
Lucky Bamboo In Glass
5. Lucky Bamboo
Bamboo plants are a great gift for the guy who already has everything. Bamboo is supposed to bring good luck, and no one can have too much of that! Arranged in a compact cube container, this Lucky Bamboo will look great on a desk, console, or even a bedside table.
How to Choose Valentine’s Flowers or Plants for Your Guy
When selecting a floral design or potted arrangement for your sweetheart, it’s important to remember his personal style and personality. You can start by thinking about the color first. We recommend avoiding pink unless it happens to be his favorite color. Typically, designs featuring bright colors like green, blue, red, yellow, and orange are best. Then look for an arrangement with either a naturally rustic design or something with a more contemporary, high-design feel.
If you don’t feel completely confident choosing a floral design for your husband or boyfriend, there’s no need to worry! Our experts at Kittelberger Florist & Gifts are always happy to help. Whether you order in person, over the phone, or online, we can provide you with personalized recommendations to help you select the perfect gift for your significant other this Valentine’s Day.
