Men Like Flowers Too!

Men are often the givers of flowers, however men also like to receive flowers too.  Perhaps because they are unexpected… an expression of love, gratitude or for any reason.  Flowers prove that someone thinks enough of them to make them feel very special.  Although sending flowers to work may cause a little embarrassment, deep inside he is probably delighted.  Certainly sending dad a bouquet or plant on Father’s Day is always appropriate.  As fathers get older, sometimes they appreciate the beauty of the gift even more.  A Rutgers University Study shows that men who receive flowers also experience increased social interaction and happiness.  Among flowers men prefer are bright colors or flowers with strong, bold lines like bird of paradise or tropicals.  Containers should be solid color with simple lines and modern looks.  Vases can be cylinder shaped or cubes; nothing too fussy.  Plants with interesting leaves or features, cacti and succulents are also popular gifts for men.  Whatever gift you choose – flowers or plants – remember that he will love to know that you thought he’s very special.  Visit Waukesha Floral’s website for more information on ordering flowers and gifts.
