Love is in the air in Cincinnati, which can only mean that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! If you’re still trying to decide what to get for your husband or boyfriend, our romance experts at Adrian Durban Florists are here to remind you that you don’t need to look any further than our local flower shop. Read on for some great Valentine’s gift recommendations for your main man.
Our Best Valentine’s Gifts for Men
Members of the pineapple family, bromeliads are loved for their spiky-looking leaves and brightly colored blooms of red, orange, and yellow. Potted bromeliads make great house or office plants, and your guy will be sure to love his.
Orchids might not be the first flower or plant to spring to mind when considering a plant for a man, but they’re actually quite sophisticated gifts for a guy’s office or home. Plus, they’re relatively easy to care for. For men, we recommend the all-white Phalaenopsis orchid, which will bloom every winter, prompting him to think of you.
3. Nostalgic Succulents
Succulents are an excellent choice for a man with a busy schedule. They require minimal care but provide maximum beauty. For guys with a nostalgic eye, we always recommend the Chevy Pickup Keepsake with Succulents, which features a variety of green succulent plants potted in the tailgate of a classic Chevy pickup.
4. Tropical Flowers
Tropical flowers bloom in fiery hues and have interesting shapes and textures, which typically go very well in the types of modern arrangements that men tend to prefer. Our Tropical Exotic Flower Arrangement, with its selection of birds of paradise, anthurium, and exotic foliage, is a great choice for just about any man.
5. Something Yummy
If you know the way to your guy’s heart is through his taste buds, then you can skip the flowers and go straight to the edible goodies. Our Cincinnati Craft Beer Gift Box, with a selection of brews and snacks, is a great choice for a husband or boyfriend. Plus, you’ll probably get to enjoy nibbling, too!
Choose Flowers for an Intimate Valentine’s Day
Women often mistakenly assume that men don’t want flowers, but men actually enjoy them just as much as women. Plus, studies have shown that men who receive flowers can become more open and communicative. They also make better eye contact and tend to stand in closer proximity to those nearby. If you’re hoping to spend an intimate Valentine’s Day with your significant other, then flowers really are the way to go!
How to Select a Floral Valentine’s Gift for Your Guy
When choosing flowers for a man, we recommend avoiding pinks and pastels — unless you know that your guy really loves those colors. Usually, designs that highlight jewel tones, sunny colors, and vibrant hues are best. Also, men tend to like more contemporary-looking designs. So, we recommend arrangements that are small and compact and that feature clean lines. Before settling on an arrangement or plant, considering your guy’s personality and style will help.
If you’re not sure where to begin when choosing flowers for your husband or boyfriend, don’t worry! Our experts at Adrian Durban Florists are always happy to help. Whether you order online, over the phone, or in person, we can provide you with personalized recommendations and point you toward the freshest blooms available in our area to make sure you spend a wonderful Valentine’s Day with your special someone.
