There’s a terrible stigma that surrounds buying flowers, where many men believe that it’s ‘cheesy’ or ‘unimaginative’ and so they tend never to buy them at all. Perhaps it had something to do with James Morrison’s ‘You Give me Something’ where he sang: “I’ve never bought you flowers, ‘cause I can’t work out what they mean”.
Sure, that was way back in 2006, but surely, he could have hopped onto Google to read up on different flowers and their meanings. Or at the very least, bought some anyway because women love the thought!
And that’s what it’s all about: the thought of it. You might be wondering ‘how on earth do I go about buying her the right flowers?’. – And the long and short of it is, you can’t really go wrong if you put in the right amount of effort.
Sure, your better half might not be overly enthused by the colours (particularly if you say, “hey baby, I’ve bought some flowers in your favourite colour” and your way off!) But provided that she can clearly recognise that you’ve made an effort, you’ll manage to scrape at least some brownie points together!
Another common question among men is: “when should I buy her flowers?” And the answer is, not just when you upset her! If you buy her flowers every time you have an argument, and then one day you decide to buy them randomly (because you’re an awesome boyfriend and you love her very much), – Well, we all know what excellent memories women have!
So, the best answer to the question is this: whenever! The more random the better. If you’re not particularly struggling for money and you’re feeling particularly generous, get online and order her a beautiful Little Flower Box, or grab a stunning bouquet. You shouldn’t need a reason to make her feel good!
If you’re going to buy flowers on her birthday, make sure that they are extra special! Don’t just grab some which were on offer in your local supermarket because you’ve left everything to the last minute. The key to sending the perfect gift of flowers is planning, careful consideration and tailoring them to suit her individual tastes and desires. Don’t be that guy who just goes for the generic, tasteless rubbish.
Never mind what your friends think, worry about what hers think! And besides, if your friends are the sort who have to comment negatively on treating your woman and taking good care of her, then perhaps you need to find yourself some new ones.
And in all honesty, nobody even really needs to know! Of course, you can have them sent to her work, but the classiest thing to do is simply bring them home one evening for no reason at all, give her a big kiss and tell her that you love her.
In this post we’re going to explore something which could be considered to be rather a ‘taboo’ topic. It’s nothing untoward, vulgar or crass, though it’s certainly something which doesn’t fall into what you might think to be ‘the norm’.
Practically unheard of, right? Well, we want people to think…well, outside the box! Very few people ever think to buy men flowers. And to be fair, a great number of men don’t particularly show much of an interest in flowers. (or at least, they’d never care to admit it) However, the fact remains that there is not a man on this earth who doesn’t look at some beautiful flowers and appreciate them for what they are.
Flowers have a similar effect on all of us. Nature’s beauty really is quite difficult to ignore, which is why we’re going to explore a new alternative.
Just as a man is expected to buy his partner flowers now and again, perhaps it’s time for you to return the favour? At the very least, it’s worth a try! Let’s take a look at some of the benefits:
In the most positive sense, it’s a double-edged sword, – one with loads of gorgeous floral patterns cast into the steel. You buy your chap flowers and they’re going on display in your house anyway. So, whether he likes them or not, you get to enjoy them in equal measure.
Perhaps get him a little something else as well, particularly if its for his birthday, but as a little extra, some flowers could be a really thoughtful gesture. You can research various flowers and their meanings, look for certain species which come in his favourite colour/s, and even purchase flowers that come with FREE seeds. So, he can grow and nurture his very own. It will be interesting for you to see how well he does with growing flowers, particularly if you’ve yet but are planning to start a family!
There are many different combinations of colours and species which can be appealing to men. It doesn’t have to be all pink, in fact, there doesn’t have to be much in the way of colour at all. The key is to be as creative as you like and try to tailor the flowers to his individual tastes.
The odds are that you’ll be the first person ever to buy him flowers in his life. And it’s the little things like that which actually mean an awful lot to most men.
It’s also a wonderful way of letting him know that it’s OK to be vulnerable around you, and that he doesn’t have to pretend to be some “macho man” all the time. It lets him know that he can openly appreciate the finer things in life, despite how he might act around his mates. Just don’t have them delivered to him in work! One step at a time, yea?
