Romance is in the air in Fort Worth, which means Valentine’s Day is almost here! If you’re not sure what to get your husband or boyfriend for Valentine’s Day this year, our romance experts at Gordon Boswell are here to recommend that you seriously consider giving your guy flowers.
Why We Recommend Giving Your Guy Flowers on Valentine’s Day
Men actually enjoy flowers and plants just as much as women. In fact, we deliver more and more floral arrangements to men for Valentine’s Day every year. Plus, studies have shown that men who receive flowers can actually become more open and communicative. They make better eye contact and like to be physically closer to those around them. So, if you’re hoping to spend an intimate, special day with your main man this Valentine’s Day, then we highly recommend giving him flowers.
Our Top Selection of Valentine’s Day Gifts for Guys
Modern Dish Garden
1. Dish Gardens
A dish garden featuring a variety of live potted plants is always a great choice for a man. These designs rarely feel frilly or too feminine for a man’s taste. They’ll create a calm and relaxing environment in an office or at home, and they’ll help purify and replenish the oxygen in the air your significant other is breathing.
Zen Succulent Garden
Succulents are some of the easiest plants to take care of because they’re native to the desert. As a result, they hardly ever need to be watered. For guys, we love our Zen Succulent Garden which features a variety of succulents, tranquil bamboo spires, and contemporary stone accents. Your man can simply place his succulent garden in a sunny location and enjoy thinking of your whenever he looks at it.
3. Contemporary Designs
Floral arrangements with clean lines, compact designs, and no unnecessary frills are popular options for men. Without the clutter, modern floral designs highlight the natural beauty of each element that’s included. Our Peach Garden, for example, includes clusters of peach roses, calla lilies, freesia, and more for a stripped-down look that’s stunningly attractive.
4. Tropical Flowers
Tropical flowers bloom in fiery hues and have interesting shapes and textures that tend to do well in the modern, minimalist floral designs that men tend to prefer. Our Soleil floral arrangement is the perfect example of how tropical blooms can triumph on their own in an arrangement. This design includes birds of paradise, anthuriums, and a variety of exotic foliage.
Texas Craft Beer Basket
5. Beer Basket
You know your man best, and if you’re not convinced he’ll love flowers, then why not find your way into his heart through his stomach? Our Texas Craft Beer Basket is filled everything your guy could want for celebrating a game day or just recovering from a long day.
How to Pick the Perfect Floral Arrangement for Your Man’s Valentine
When choosing flowers for a man, it’s important to consider his own tastes and personality. Unless his favorite color is pink, we recommend avoiding bouquets that primarily feature pink blooms or flowers in other pastel hues. It’s best to stick with vibrant colors, monochrome palettes, and jewel tones.
If you’re not sure what type of plant or floral arrangement your husband or boyfriend would like, don’t worry! Our expert florists at Gordon Boswell are here to help. Whether you order online, over the phone, or in person, we’ll provide you with personalized recommendations to make sure you and your sweetheart celebrate your best Valentine’s Day yet!
