1. Bromeliads

A member of the pineapple family, bromeliads have spiky leaves and brilliant colors. These gorgeous plants make the perfect gift for a man. They’re easy to care for and stunning to look at. For Valentine’s Day, we recommend the Triple Bromeliad Garden which features three potted bromeliads in three lovely hues.

2. Succulents

If your guy has a busy schedule, then low-maintenance plants are essential. Succulents are wonderful because they require minimal care, but provide maximum style. This Sensational Succulents Garden features a variety of succulents in a sleek planter and is perfect for any home or office with a sunny window.

3. Orchids

Orchids typically aren’t the first plant that comes to mind when shopping for a man, but they’re really a wonderfully unexpected option. Their exotic beauty creates a sophisticated look, making them great for a home or office. For men, we especially love the all-white Phalaenopsis orchid blooms featured in our Dulce Duet planter.

4. Tropical Flowers

If you’d prefer to give your guy flowers for Valentine’s Day, arrangements of tropical flowers are a great choice because their blooms tend to have bright, fiery hues, interesting shapes, and unusual textures, which look great in the sort of modern designs men love. Our Memories of Paradise arrangement features birds of paradise, which will make your man feel like he’s spent a day on a tropical island.

White Roses

5. Roses

Roses are perfect for both men and women on Valentine’s Day. Traditionally, red roses symbolize romance, but you can go for an unexpected hue and send your man a bouquet of elegant White Roses instead.

Why Flowers Are an Excellent Choice for Men on Valentine’s Day

Men actually enjoy receiving flowers just as much as women. We deliver more and more flowers to men for Valentine’s Day each year. Plus, studies have shown that men who receive flowers become more open and communicative. They also tend to make better eye contact and stand closer to those who are nearby. If you’re hoping to spend an intimate day with your special someone on Valentine’s Day, then we strongly recommend giving your man flowers.

How to Choose a Floral Arrangement for Your Husband or Boyfriend

When getting flowers for a man, we usually recommend avoiding arrangements that feature pink or pastel flowers, as these can sometimes feel too feminine. If, however, you know your guy’s favorite color is pink, then go for it! Typically, bouquets with monochrome color palettes, bright colors, jewel tones, and sunny hues are the best choices. We also recommend more contemporary designs for men. Look for arrangements with sleek, compact designs and straight lines.

If you’re not sure what sort of flowers your man would like, don’t worry! Our experts at Al’s Florist are happy to help. Whether you order online, in person, or over the phone, we’ll provide you with personalized recommendations and help you make a wonderful selection for your sweetheart.
