Love is in the air in Albuquerque, and the most romantic day of the year is just around the corner. If you’re still trying to decide what to get your husband or boyfriend for Valentine’s Day, you might be surprised to find out that we have a large selection of wonderful Valentine’s gifts for guys, including flowers, at all of our Peoples Flower Shops locations.
What Science Says About Giving Flowers to Men
You might think that flowers seem like an odd gift for a man, but science begs to differ. Studies have shown that men who receive flowers become more communicative and open. They make better eye contact and also stand closer to those around them. In other words, giving a man flowers could make him more open to intimacy. So, if you’re hoping to share a special moment or have an important conversation with your guy on Valentine’s Day, we recommend giving him flowers.
Favorite Valentine’s Gifts for Men Found at Our Flower Shops
Roses are perfect for men and women, especially on Valentine’s Day. Red roses specifically symbolize romantic love, making them a classic choice for the season of romance. Our Loverboy arrangement is a great choice if you want to send your significant other roses this year. In this design, deep-green eucalyptus leaves perfectly complement ruby-red roses with festive accent ribbon.
2. Tropical Flowers
Tropical flowers like orchids, birds of paradise, ginger, protea, and anthurium bloom in fiery hues and have interesting shapes and unusual textures that work well in the types of contemporary floral designs men tend to love. Our Hearts of Paradise is a perfect example of an arrangement that highlights the unexpected beauty of tropical flowers with a modern look that features red and white flowers.
3. ZZ Plant
If you’re not sure your man knows how to care for a plant, then the ZZ Plant is the perfect solution. This leafy green beauty basically needs to be neglected. It can survive the harshest droughts and thrive in very low light conditions. So, if your guy’s thumb isn’t the greenest, he’ll still get to enjoy his wonderful Valentine’s gift for years to come.
Succulents are extremely low-maintenance, which makes them perfect for a man with a relentlessly busy schedule. Our most popular succulent garden includes a diverse variety of vibrant green succulents in a sleek ceramic container.
These tropical plants are members of the pineapple family and have spiky, green leaves and spiky blooms to match. Our Bromeliad Garden includes three vibrantly blooming plants that your man will adore almost as much as you.
How to Choose the Perfect Floral Arrangement for Your Guy
Selecting a floral arrangement for a man is not much different than choosing one for a woman; beautiful is beautiful. We usually suggest choosing designs that feature deeper or darker tones, like reds, rather than pastels and powdery pinks. Men also tend to prefer more modern floral designs that have clean, strong lines, and compact silhouettes. If you’d rather give your husband or boyfriend a live plant, we recommend anthurium, orchids, leafy green plants, and succulents that are both attractive and easy to care for.
If you still aren’t sure what to get your guy for Valentine’s Day, don’t worry! Our florists at Peoples Flower Shops are always happy to help. Whether you order online, in person, or over the phone, we’ll provide you with expert advice and personalized recommendations to help you choose the perfect floral gift for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day.
