Romance is in the air in Boston, and that can mean only one thing: Valentine’s Day is almost here! If you’re still wondering what to buy your boyfriend or husband for Valentine’s Day, we recommend looking no further than your local flower shop. At Central Square Florist, our experts recommend gifts that keep on giving — green plants and even floral arrangements!
Are Flowers Really Okay for a Man’s Valentine’s Gift?
Yes, flowers are completely appropriate for a man’s Valentine’s Day gift! In today’s day and age, men love receiving flowers. In fact, studies have shown that men who receive flowers become more open and communicative, they make better eye contact, and they tend to stand in closer proximity to their loved ones. If you’re hoping for an intimate holiday, then flowers are a great option.
We recommend looking for arrangements with compact designs, straight lines, and bright colors. If you’re not convinced that your guy would love to receive a floral arrangement, then we recommend taking good care of them with green plants that create a calm atmosphere and help clean the air.
Our Top Recommendations in Valentine’s Day Gifts for Guys
1. Good Luck
According to legend, a gift of bamboo brings good luck to the recipient, which makes an arrangement of Lucky Bamboo the perfect Valentine for your guy. Bamboo plants thrive in bright light or low-light conditions, making them a great choice for displaying in any home or office. In addition to good luck, bamboo will create a calm atmosphere, which is great for someone leading a hectic daily life.
2. Good Fortune
These leafy green plants are lovely to look at and believed to bring good luck and prosperity — two things everyone could use more of. Ascending from an attractive, contemporary container, this Zen Money Tree will make your man feel like he’s looking out onto a peaceful landscape anytime he admires it.
3. Easy Care
If you have a busy beau, then it’s essential your gift not take up any of his time. For sweethearts with stuffed schedules, we recommend our Zen Succulent Garden, which features a wide variety of easy-to-care-for succulent plants. Simply place these in a sunny location, sit back, and enjoy.
4. Red Roses
A classic symbol of romantic love, red roses are perfect for any man or woman on Valentine’s Day. For men, we especially love an arrangement that pairs red roses with other unexpected blooms like the white orchids and green hydrangea in our My Sweet Love design.
5. Tropical Touch
Floral arrangements featuring a variety of tropical flowers are also great for any man. Tropical flowers have fiery color palettes, interesting textures, and unexpected shapes, making them a great choice for a man who loves a taste of the exotic. This V-Day, let your guy relax and bask in the warmth of a Tropical Breeze with an arrangement featuring blooms like protea, lilies, and birds of paradise!
Where to Get a Valentine’s Day Gift for Your Guy
If you’re planning to get flowers or a plant for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day, then we recommend shopping with a local flower shop. When ordering from national flower delivery companies, you never know exactly what you’re going to get. Plus, it’s not uncommon to get hit with unexpected processing fees and delivery charges. When you order from a local shop, your money supports our community and you can also expect to receive stellar customer service and a high-quality product.
Whether you order online, in person, or over the phone, our romance experts at Central Square Florist can help you make the perfect selection for your beau on Valentine’s Day.
