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.

  1. As a father I can say I’d love to get flowers for father’s day.

    I’ve never been given flowers by anyone in my life but I’d really appreciate the thought. T think it’s because I give them to my wife so know how much thought and feeling goes into giving them so would love to be on the receiving end.

  2. hmmnn..bigyan ko kaya ng flowers si hubby???

  3. that is cool, but are the tips of giving a woman flowers

    • Yes, Eddy, this is the biggest tip on giving a woman flowers:

      Red roses, give them to her with a smile and a hug, and stare into her eyes until she kisses you. it’s pretty simple.

  4. I told hubby I will surprise him with a bunch of flowers and a big teddy at work one time. Nagalit sya. Di daw daw bagay sa kanya yun. Hahaha!

  5. This is a good idea…kaso wala namang flower delivery here. Mamimitas na lang ako sa paligid heheeh.

  6. Mommy Jes says

    i wanted to give my husband a flower so many times na ahahha apero d ko magawa…d ko maisip if awkward ba or what? ahahhaha ;) nweis about sa balloon, yes ako gumawa and sa you tube ako natuto ng mga gingawa ko pero ung basic ay sa panoood sa tita ng husband ko :D nung bdays kasi ng mga kdiddos taga gawa nmin tita ko…so ang una ko inaral ay ang paggaawa ng flower…after that lahat ped eko n aralin ;D via you tube :D

  7. I’m not sure I would ever send a man flowers, it really seems like one of those things that guys think are silly and a waste of money. I love sending flowers to a household (hooked on proflowers promo codes), but I feel like it is typically the woman of the house who gets enjoyment out of these. I find that men enjoy more practical gifts like putting their favorite snack in their briefcase.
