Flowers For Men?
Well, why not - men love flowers too! Gone are the days when flowers were only gifted to women. These days, whether it's a birthday bouquet for him, an anniversary bouquet for your husband or even just because - there are many flowers out there that are "suitable for men" and will definitely put a smile on their faces. And truth be told, most men are so accustomed to giving flowers, that when they do receive one themselves, we guarantee they'll be smiling from ear to ear!
Even though we don't think of flowers as inherently "feminine" or "masculine", we can't deny that some flowers are more suitable for women than for men. For example, some flowers look better when paired with a dress than with a suit! And vice versa for men as well! Here are some of our flower suggestions and tips to get the perfect blooms for your man PLUS some gift ideas and gift sets to pair with them. Keep reading!
How to Choose Flowers For Men
While we believe flowers are for everyone, we also know not every guy will be crazy about whispy, pastel pink roses or fluffy plumes of baby's breaths. So make choosing the right flowers for him easier with these helpful tips.
- Use strong colours: Forget the pastel pinks and peaches. Opt for bolder, stronger colours like maroon, deep purple, orange or even black. Conversely, you could even go for a gender-neutral white!
- Skip the added accessories: Flower bouquets for him should be kept simple and doesn't need to be covered in colourful frilly ribbons or sparkles. Unless he's into that, then go ahead!
- Striking shapes and textures: Similarly, flowers for men tend to have robust petals and a more solid structure rather than soft dainty ones. E.g. Avoid any floofy matthiolas and baby's breaths. But if your blooms still need a filler, then...
- Go for foliage: Instead of feathery fillers, try something bolder and greener, like monstera or eucalyptus leaves. There's just something about that jungly vibe that perfectly balances the bright blooms.
- Choose your vase carefully: Instead of the usual clear glass vase, pick a wooden or clay vase for a more rustic touch. Or simply cover the inside of the vase with a spiral of leaves like these.
Flower Suggestions For Him
Now that we've given you some tips on HOW to pick the best flowers for your man, let's share with you WHAT the best flowers are. Or at least our favs! Here's a list of the best flowers for men.
We think Lilies are some of the most quintessential flowers for men. Upright and firm when unbloomed, vibrant and striking when bloomed! Perfect for any man to show off his confident side. Plus, they come in so many different colours, you could even get him a whole rainbow of flowers if you wanted to!
Despite their popularity as a romantic flower, roses definitely aren't just meant for women. Their classic look and multitude of colours make them great flowers for men too! Just keep in mind that some roses have deeper meanings than others, e.g. red roses signify love and romance, while yellow roses symbolise joy and friendship.
Pro Tip: If you're not keen on giving your man flowers of a certain colour due to its meaning, then opt for a more neutral white colour.
These tropical flowers are a sure-fire way to make your man feel exotic and dashing. Their striking bright orange petals look like flames shooting up from the ground, while their dark green leaves create an interesting contrast that's both enticing and exciting.
Pro Tip: Pair these flowers with something more masculine such as a wood or clay vase to really bring out its fiery energy!
Unlike most other blooms, sunflowers give off an air of energy and cheerful happiness rather than femininity. Maybe it's the bright yellow petals or its large blooming face that looks like Teletubbies' happy Sun Baby staring at you. Either way, it's sure to put a smile on your man's face.
Some flowers are just too unique to pass up. Like anthuriums! They come in all shades from red, to green and even blue, so you can always pick his fav colours! The best part is, these hardy blooms last wayyyy longer than most other flowers after being cut. That means he can admire it for longer!
Leaves and Foliage
Sometimes, the best flower bouquet for men aren't flowers at all! While these aren't pretty little blooms, you can still make a wonderful arrangement out of just leaves and other green foliage. Like the picture above! Some of our favourite leaves to use are monsteras, eucalyptus and even rosemary leaves.
