Flowers may be closely associated with the art of romance, and have been used to mark events and milestones in our lives with others. And while flowers have typically been gifted to women, they can also be a great way to show our appreciation or celebrate momentous occasions with the gentlemen in our lives.
Studies have shown that men do appreciate getting flowers – and with a little care and thought put into it, it is possible to make an impact with daily flowers and get something that will appeal to their taste and brighten up their day. Here are some of our suggestions to help get you started.
Tulips are the ideal flower for pops as they symbolise spring and the celebration of new beginnings. Standing for perfect love, these elegant and easily identifiable blooms radiate happiness and convey comfort and warmth. Choose brighter colours such as orange or yellow so dad can proudly display them on his desk and freshen up his workdays.
Anthuriums is a heart-shaped flower that makes a bold statement just by itself. Available in an array of colours, it immediately uplifts any room and is a fitting flower for any space, adding an air of sophistication to the surroundings.
Nothing exudes peace and serenity more than Peace lilies, which are low maintenance plants that require a shady spot and watering just once a week – making it ideal for dads who have non-green fingers but still appreciate bringing nature indoors.
Also known for purifying the air and their natural sweet fragrance, white peace lilies are a good gender-neutral plant that dads can easily appreciate.
For expressing your heartfelt gratitude for #1 dad, gifting hydrangeas is a classic choice with its androgynous design and selection of colours. They are also easy to mix and match with other blooms and greens in a floral arrangement.
A great example of how to pair Hydrangeas is our classic Clean and Green arrangement that comes in fresh white flowers with a touch of pastels.
Evoking a wonderful sense of calm, orchids have been shown to increase concentration, productivity and memory retention when placed near your office desk. Symbolising pride and maturity, receiving white orchids is a safe choice for its clean and crisp aesthetic that dad will appreciate.
Red chrysanthemums make a more unique flower to gift dad. A great complement when combined with smaller blooms, chrysanthemums typically symbolise friendship – for the dad who is also a best friend. He’ll be glad to know the years he’s taken to build that side-kick relationship has finally come to fruition.
If you think that dad won’t be as thrilled to receive a bouquet filled with pinks and pastels, choosing bold and bright colours such as fiery red, royal blue, bright yellow and deep purple are great alternatives. Our Enormous Crocodile Hungarian pickle vases are big in personality, befitting of the macho man in your family.
Florals to remind him of being in touch with nature paired with a hidden handwritten card, his favourite vintage wine, or a pair of tickets to an upcoming blockbuster film for a night out with dad will show him just how much you care and appreciate having him in your life.
