Flowers And Men

What? Flowers and Men! Not really. Before you think of shaking your head in mock disbelief, let us enlighten you with the fact that most men have been obsessed with flowers as early as the Romantic period. Many a Victorian dandy has sniffed a bunch of blooms while writing scented love notes to his beloved and famous poets have waxed eloquent verse about their sheer beauty. Who can ever forget Daffodils by William Wordsworth?

Studies show that flowers actually have a positive effect on human beings and men aren’t far behind from being influenced? Though it is an established fact that men are not averse to flowers, one never really thinks of giving them flowers often. Get that idea out of your head. According to many surveys taken by men show that the vast majority of men would enjoy receiving flowers for their birthday or other special occasions. Flowers are as cherished by men as by women. Though they may not exactly go weak in the knees, men like to feel just as special and pampered as most women do.

Men like flowers in all colors, depending on their personalities. Some especially prefer colors that are vibrant and colorful, and enjoy flowers including the likes of red roses, pink orchids and yellow chrysanthemums. Not to mention any particular favorite flower the man might have from orchids to a cactus. Others like dark and unusual shades and appreciate when a lady gives them a sultry black rose.

When buying flowers for men, it is important to go for simple arrangements. Men usually don’t like arrangements that are very elaborate and fancy. In fact adding interesting green plants and herbs to the arrangement is usually a good idea. These days, contemporary styles with sleek lines are great favorites with men.

However, not all flowers can be given to all men. And in case you are questioning whether that’s a huge generalization, we are assuming you realize that certain flowers such as red roses symbolize passion and romance and are not really appropriate to be given as gifts to fathers, brothers, and so on. Flowers such as the white carnation – which symbolizes innocence – and the Belle of Ireland – which stands for good luck – can be gifted to any man, whether he’s a part of your family of group of friends. Remember, whether it is their birthday or a recent achievement in their professional lives, men like to be shown appreciation with flower gifts.

Wait! Men also like to use flowers as accessories. When your man wears a classic black suit and tucks in a blood red rose in his breast pocket, doesn’t he look absolutely divine? Yes! Men are known to like accessorizing their look with a single flower or a spray pinned to their pockets. This style not only looks very stylish but gives them an air of rakish charm. So don’t hesitate to tuck in that rose for him the next time you are headed for a romantic dinner at a lavish restaurant.
