Video: Flowers With A Masculine Character
There are many options when it comes to choosing a gift for a woman, but the list shrinks significantly when you think about a gift for a man. And when you think about what the perfect gift for the man of your life should be, it is unlikely that fresh flowers come to your mind. But in vain! It's time to expand your imagination and show courage in expressing your love, because men, like women, want to know that they are loved.
It is common knowledge that most women around the world love to receive flowers, whatever the occasion, and even more so - just like that. The bouquet of fresh flowers received as a gift not only fills any day with special light, but is also a sign of respect, friendship, devotion, gratitude, love … the list of feelings can be endless! Moreover, flowers can speak when any words may seem insignificant.
But in the centuries-old tradition of giving flowers, women have always predominated as the recipient. Indeed, in those harsh centuries of human history, men were clearly not up to flowers, so no one even admitted the thought that men might also like to receive flowers. Fortunately, times have changed. Every year in the world more and more men receive flowers from their loved ones, business partners and their family members. Fresh flowers are becoming an increasingly popular gift option for the stronger sex. Sending a bouquet of flowers in our time has become not only a great romantic gesture, but also just a wonderful way to show someone how important this person is to you, be it a birthday, some other holiday, or just a spontaneous outburst of love.
The world has realized that flowers are just a bright way to give your love, to express your emotions. And, therefore, there is no reason why a bouquet can be exclusively for a woman. Having received a bouquet of correctly selected flowers and decorative greenery, a man of importance in your life will not only receive several beautiful flowers, but will also be glad that you value him highly enough to give him a bouquet, informing about your attitude towards him in this charming look.
Although the motivating reasons why we choose a bouquet for a man are not much different from those that they themselves are guided by when choosing them for women, nevertheless, when choosing flowers or living plants for men, several things should be remembered:
Men prefer stronger shapes, bolder colors, darker shades, so stay away from pastels.
- tropical flowers and plants are good choices for real guys;
- potted plants are a great choice as they add life to any home or office and are a constant reminder of your feelings.
Flowers for real men
The white orchid is a great plant, definitely not gender dependent, which makes it one of the best flowers for men. In addition to its exotic appearance and sophistication, it exudes a wonderful sense of tranquility into its surroundings, making the orchid a wonderful desktop flower for an anti-stress work environment. A study from the University of Michigan found that having orchids in the workplace also increased concentration, productivity and memory retention by 20%. So, giving a potted white orchid is a great idea for any man in your life! Anyway, orchids - from small dendrobium to large vanda - are a popular choice for a masculine bouquet!
Modern research has also found that men prefer bouquets with crisp shapes and vibrant colors such as red, orange and yellow. But they do not like overly pretentious compositions and sophistication.
Large chrysanthemums of bright colors are a great choice! And in the language of flowers, chrysanthemums mean friendship. Hence, it is just the perfect flower to thank the person who is next to you, be it a father, husband, brother or business partner.
Bird of paradise flower
Flowers of the tropics are a great gift for a man. We can safely say that men are more fond of flowers, which are more unusual than elegant. For example, the royal strelitzia is a flower with a truly remarkable appearance, for which it is also called the “Flower of the Bird of Paradise”. It looks like a brightly colored bird in flight. It is a truly unique flower that will truly make everyone turn to it and that is what makes it one of the best flowers for men.

There will also be bamboo plants, which are known to bring good luck, and also, due to their appearance, are a good gift for men.
Psychologists say the white lily is one of the best first flowers for men who are not used to being cared for! The plant itself is very aesthetically pleasing with its beautifully delicate white flowers, while they also help purify the air by removing harmful gases. With all this in mind, the white lily - so lovely and calm - seems like the perfect flower for anyone.
The flower that never fails to bring a smile to your face is the gerbera. Another versatile choice in many vibrant colors. It is such a bright and colorful flower that in the flower dictionary it symbolizes a smile and cheerfulness. This makes it a wonderful flower for a gift to a man, because you give him a smile and cheerfulness, and who doesn't want to receive them as a gift?
Colors with a "masculine character" also include: sunflowers with their bright colors ranging from yellow to dark orange; gladioli - flowers imitating spears, it is certainly also one of the most "courageous" flowers; protea is a favorite of florists, an exotic plant with a very original appearance; tulips are typical spring flower "soldiers" with an amazing variety of flowers; and, of course, the floral classics - roses, reds and other dark colors, they are especially good in bouquets for older men.
Today, the etiquette of giving flowers as a gift only to women is just one gender difference in our culture that seems to be quickly evaporating. If you think soberly, there is nothing masculine or feminine in the ability to recognize, feel and enjoy the beauty and aromas of fresh flowers. Fresh flowers are a new and very subtle communication tool of the XXI century. Statistics show that nowadays more and more people in the world are aware of this fact, which means that women and men are more likely to buy flowers as a gift for men - friends, spouses, brothers, sons and fathers. And this makes the world only brighter and kinder!
