Flowers can be thought of as a romantic gift. Traditionally it is a gift that is given to a woman from a man (most of the time). Romantic men send flowers often. The flowers and the men that send them are appreciated; they give smiles and make memories that last a lifetime. A woman that receives flowers will remember them forever… “I remember when I was having this really bad day and so-and-so sent me this big bunch of tulips. It turned my whole day around.” The cards men write? They are saved forever!
Well ladies… How about turning the tables on the man in your life? Do men like receiving flowers as much as they like sending them? Consider the following:
Your man may have never gotten flowers before. What impact do you think your bouquet will have? Will he remember them forever? Chances are “yes”. Will the flowers make him smile? He will laugh, he will smile, and he will feel giddy and like a king amongst men.
Want to take your honey’s focus off his work and onto you? Want to make him delirious for the rest of his workday? Send him a big bouquet of “anything nice”! His productivity will go down and he will love you for it.
Write a romantically witty card and you have doubled the impact. You may embarrass him a little but that is OK. Bring out his softer side just as you know that he is going out for happy hour drinks with the boys; or when you know that he is going somewhere to watch Monday Night Football. What about when he got that big promotion, when he closes the big deal, or perhaps when he did not? “I love you” is all you need the card to say; the flowers do the rest.
So what kind of flowers do you send your dude? Do they need to be masculine, over the top rustic, dark colored with lots of pointy things, twigs and branches? Not necessarily. I would even suggest not. Should they be super-pink and feminine? Not that either! Unless… he has a super sense of humor and the goal is to embarrass your construction worker on the jobsite! If you want to be funny and he can handle it, then do send all-pink.
More seriously, what do you send a guy? All flowers are beautiful so send him something beautiful! There is no need to over try for “masculine flowers” (I don’t even know that there is such a thing). Send him his favorite colors or scents that remind him of you. Did you go to a romantic dinner and there was a bud vase on your table that became the topic of romantic conversation? Send him a bouquet of those.
Here are a couple of “rules” in picking your flowers:
- Make your bouquet with one type of flower. Not a mixed bunch.
- Make your flowers in a short vase. Nothing too tall and not in a wicker basket.
- No pastels…
Bright yellow or mango-toned miniature calla lilies, purple tulips, burgundy orchids, or even a tight nosegay of green roses will all achieve the results you dream of… To get his mind focused squarely on you and nothing else!
Men are just as capable of appreciating the moment, the beauty of the bloom and the heart of the person that sent them. NEVER underestimate your man’s emotions.
So now you have an assignment –
a. Think about what your card will say.
b. Pick your flowers.
c. Send them…
