Romance is in the air in Billings, which means Valentine’s Day is nearly here! If you’re still trying to decide what to get your husband or boyfriend for Valentine’s Day, our romance experts at Gainan’s Flowers are here to recommend that you seriously consider getting your guy flowers.

Are Flowers Really an Appropriate Valentine’s Gift for a Man?

Yes, they definitely are! Men actually enjoy receiving flowers just as much as women, and we’re delivering more and more flowers to men every year on Valentine’s Day. In fact, studies have shown that men who receive flowers can become more open and communicative. They also tend to make better eye contact and position themselves closer to their loved ones, too. So, if you’re hoping to spend a romantic and intimate day with your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day, we highly recommend giving your man flowers.

Tropical flowers like birds of paradise, bromeliads, protea, and anthurium all bloom in fiery colors and feature interesting shapes and unusual textures, which look great in the types of contemporary designs that men tend to prefer. Our Paradise arrangement features a variety of tropical blooms in a lush arrangement that’ll make your guy feel like he received an island getaway for Valentine’s Day.

Bromeliads are unlike most plants whereas they give off oxygen during the night instead of the day. They require a sunny spot and keep the center vase filled with water.


5. Potted Bromeliads

These tropical beauties naturally grow from the bark of trees in lush rainforests, but they’ll also do well growing in your guy’s home or office! In bloom, bromeliads are vibrant with bright colors like red, orange, and yellow. They’re relatively easy to care for, which will make your man feel like an expert in exotic plants.

How to Choose a Floral Arrangement or Plant for Your Guy on Valentine’s Day

When selecting a floral arrangement for a man, it’s smart to consider his own personal taste and personality. Unless his favorite color is pink, it’s usually best to avoid shades of pink and other pastel hues, as these can appear overly feminine for some men’s liking. When it comes to color, stick with vibrant hues, primary colors, monochrome color schemes, and jewel tones, or go with a design that prominently features his favorite color. We recommend looking for more contemporary arrangements that feature clean lines and compact designs or natural-looking arrangements with a rustic feel.

When you start shopping for a plant or floral arrangement for a man and realize the sheer number of options that are actually available, it can be a little overwhelming. If you’re still not sure what to choose for your husband or boyfriend, don’t worry! Our florists at Gainan’s Flowers are always available to help. Whether you order in person, online, or over the phone, we can provide you with personalized recommendations to help you select the perfect design for your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day.
