Why Flowers Are the Perfect Valentine’s Gift for Him (and You)

Men actually enjoy receiving flowers just as much as women, and giving your guy flowers could result in the best Valentine’s Day you’ve had yet. Studies have actually shown that men who receive flowers become more open and communicative, in addition to standing closer to those around them and holding better eye contact. So, if you’re hoping for an intimate day with the top man in your life, we strongly recommend sending him flowers.

How to Choose a Floral Arrangement for Your Guy

Picking out a floral arrangement for a man can seem daunting at first, but you’ll find out fast that there are actually lots of great options to choose from. Unless you know your beau loves pink or other pastels, we recommend passing up these colors, in favor of bold, bright hues like jewel tones, citrus, and primary colors. Monochrome color palettes are also popular for men. When shopping for floral styles, we recommend looking for modern, contemporary designs that tend to be more masculine looking than others. Keep an eye out for compact silhouettes and strong, clean lines.

If you’re not sure what flowers to get for your husband or boyfriend, don’t worry! Our experts at Mission Viejo Florist are always happy to help. Whether you order in person, over the phone, or online, we can provide you with professional advice and personalized recommendations to make sure you select the best Valentine’s Gift for your man this year!
