Tips on Giving a Man Flowers

It’s almost Father’s Day, and if you’re still struggling for a gift for the most special man in your life, then right here’s where your dilemma ends.  Although the idea seems slightly irreverent at first, if you give it some thought, it’s quite unique and memorable.  Sure, masculinity is hardly associated with fresh blooms, but it would be a good idea to give your man flowers.  If you’re worried about your hubby or father raising his eyebrows and shuddering at the mere thought of you giving him flowers, here are some tips on how to somehow take the torture out of this task:

Pastels tend to spell femininity, so it would be wise to steer clear of pinks and peaches.  You could instead pick out more vivid colors such as bright yellows, oranges, and fiery reds.

When it comes to which types of flowers to choose, go for birds of paradise, anthuriums or orchids.  These are somewhat sturdier and more full-bodied, so to speak.  Shun the fluffy bouquets.  Your man would prefer a contemporary linear or angular arrangement.

To make it more personal, consider your man’s interests or hobbies.  For instance, if he’s a basketball fan, throw in some tickets to the next game with the flowers.  Or you could even color-coordinate the flowers according to the colors of his favorite team.

Even if your man isn’t into flowers, he’ll definitely appreciate the effort you put into it.  Not to mention, it’s a subtle hint for him to give you flowers too.
