It features vibrant tulips, roses, and hyacinth with a giant, yellow cymbidium orchid as its centerpiece. This bouquet’s rainbow of color will catch your man’s eye just like you did when you first met!
Roses are perfect for either men or women, and red roses, symbolizing romantic love, are the classic choice for Valentine’s Day. Every color of rose has its own symbolic meaning, and we suggest sending him a bouquet with a variety of colors to show him all the different ways you love him. Our Candy Hearts arrangement includes red, yellow, pink, and orange roses, which respectively stand for romance, friendship, admiration, and passion.
3. Snake Plant
The tall, green spires of snake plants are lovely to look at, and they’re experts at cleaning and replenishing the air. Easy to care for, this potted plant is a no-brainer great gift idea for any guy.
If your man has a busy schedule and no free time to tend to a new plant, then choosing something that’s low-maintenance is essential. We recommend a Succulent Garden, which features a variety of hand-picked succulent plants in a stylish ceramic container. These beauties are super easy to care for. All they need is a sunny location and the occasional drink of water.

Why Science Says Flowers Are a Great Valentine’s Gift for Guys
Men enjoy receiving flowers just as much as women, but if you think it sounds like a strange idea, then we recommend seeing what science has to say about the matter. Studies have shown that men who receive flowers become more open and communicative. They make better eye contact and stand closer to those around them. If you’re hoping to share a special holiday with your significant other, then we recommend sending him flowers and a dose of intimacy for Valentine’s Day.
How to Choose a Floral Arrangement for Your Husband or Boyfriend
At first, choosing a floral design for a man can seem like a daunting task, but once you start looking, you’ll see that there are actually lots of appropriate arrangements available for men. If you’re not sure where to start, we recommend passing over designs that feature pinks and other pastel colors in favor of designs that use flowers in jewel tones, primary colors, neutral colors, or even in monochromatic color schemes. Typically, bolder colors translate as more masculine and softer colors as more feminine.
Red roses are a classic and gender-neutral choice. We also recommend orchids because they come in a variety of colors and container choices. Succulent gardens, snake plants, and ZZ plants are good selections, as they all fair well with minimal care.
