Can a Woman Send Flowers To A Man?
Traditionally we’re taught that flowers are for girls and other women, but times they are a changin’. If you’d like to gift flowers to your boyfriend, brother, father, or any other man in your life, there’s no reason why you can’t. It’s time to change the game!
Sending flowers to a man is not girly, and it’s definitely not unmanly. Men may actually enjoy receiving them as gifts, because the entire flower delivery experience makes them feel as special as you do when he arrives on Valentine’s Day with a bouquet of roses. Or when an extravagant vase arrangement of orchids is delivered to your office with a loving note.
But, we understand that you might still be nervous about showering a special man in your life with floral love. We’ve answered your questions below to help you choose the right bud for the boy on your mind.
What Does it Mean When a Woman Gives a Man Flowers?
When you send flowers to a man, it means the same thing as when a man sends flowers to you. Flowers are a great way to let him know what you’re feeling and how important his presence is in your life. Whatever the occasion, there’s a bloom to say what’s on your mind, as long as you choose the right colour and flower type to convey your message. Warming up to the idea? Follow these tips from our florists to gift your man the right flowers:
Love Him with Red Roses
The rose is an easily recognisable symbol of romantic love. The red rose is your go to flower when you want to tell your date, boyfriend or husband that you love him. A bouquet works best, but if you’re in a steady relationship, or celebrating an anniversary, you may wish to surprise him with something more. For those extra special occasions, a boxed or vase flower arrangement will fill the air with romance.
Be Platonic with your Man with Pink Roses
It’s not all love and romance with flowers. They can convey admiration or affection too. Pink roses are for those extra special men in your life with whom you share a mutual and platonic affection. You can give a bouquet of pink roses to family members, best friends, mentors at university or work, colleagues and other important role models.
Celebrate Friendship and Joy with Yellow Roses or Lilies
Brightly coloured and sunny flowers like roses or lilies are what you need when you want to send a floral gift to a friend or colleague. If you want to congratulate them or wish them a happy birthday, any posy, arrangement or bouquet with these buds as the main attraction will tell him you’re thinking of him on his special day.
Yellow is also the colour of positivity. When there’s a reason to celebrate, he’ll appreciate that you thought of him with a flower arrangement as grand as these events:
- Sporting victories: When he wins big, show him and the team that you’re in their corner with a bouquet of yellow roses.
- Promotions: Hard work is often rewarded with advancement and a posy of yellow lilies, chrysanthemums and gerberas is the perfect way to say congratulations.
- Graduations: A degree is earned through effort and persistence. To celebrate his wisdom, send him an arrangement of purple and yellow flowers.
All that matters is that the occasion and the message are joyous and positive.
Say I’m Sorry with White Flowers
If you had a fight with your boyfriend or a guy you care for, or he’s going through a rough time, white flowers are what you need to offer apologies, sympathies and condolences. Send him apology flowers in the form of a bouquet of white roses, lilies, orchids or gerberas to tell him that he’s in your thoughts, and can rely on you for support.
The meaning of your floral arrangement or bouquet is in the flower type and colour, not the gender receiving it.
Is it Weird to Gift a Guy Flowers?
The simple answer is: Not at all! Many women ask us this question and our advice is to remember that guys love to receive gifts and feel special like anyone else. If you’re still not certain that flowers will impress him or convey the right message, you can always pair your bouquet or arrangement with another gift.
Our top ten ideas for men’s gifts that pair well with flowers include:
- Travel packs
- Computer and mobile phone accessories
- Snack hampers
- Pamper hampers
- Gift vouchers
- Event or movie tickets
- His favourite wine or beer
- A book by his favourite author
- A new outfit for work or the gym
It’s not weird to give a guy flowers, but if you’re worried about how he may react, any of these gifts will help take the attention away from the flowers. Instead he’ll be focused on the message that they symbolise.
Do Guys Like Getting Flowers Delivered To Work?
When flowers are delivered to a workplace the recipient is by default the centre of attention. Who can miss a box of popping rainbow roses or bouquet of majestic orchids adorning a desk or work station? In bustling CBDs like Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, a flower delivery will take his mind off the day’s stresses, and bring attention to the occasion at hand.
So yes, guys like being in the spotlight. They’ll remember the experience of being harassed by co-workers for details about the sender. Every time they see your gift in the days following, your flowers will be a reminder that you thought of them.
Why Send Flowers To His Office or Workplace?
There’s dozens of reasons why he might enjoy having flowers delivered to work, and there’s a range of occasions on which to send them. If you’re in doubt, choose an understated posy or bouquet over a flamboyant floral arrangement. We would recommend surprising him with a flower delivery to say:
- Happy Birthday
- Happy Valentine’s Day
- Have a great first day
- Congratulations on your promotion
- Congratulations on your new client
- Congratulations on a completed project
- Have a good day
- Feel better soon
- Farewell and good luck
Guys like receiving gifts as much as anyone else. A bouquet or arrangement of flowers to brighten his day or celebrate his achievements at work will not go astray, or injure his pride.
