Giving Men Flowers — A Do or Don't? 

Giving Men Flowers — A Do or Don't? 

Receiving flowers at work might make your face turn as red as the roses, but for men, a whole other level of embarrassment could bloom. Convention holds that men are supposed to send flowers, and women are supposed to receive. Still, I don't buy it! Who says men can't enjoy a fresh floral scent — and if you oppose mixing bouquets with business for any gender, bringing your guy some colorful flowers outside of work could really brighten up his home.

Crap, sent before I could finish. I would LOVE to return the favor for him and get him buggy flowers, potted flowers, or herb plants. It's a very thoughtful gift.

I voted Do, my guy loves to bring me flowers. He used to pick them from his house and often they had some bugs still in them. To this day (years later, we moved in together), he tells me he needs to find some buggy flowers to bring me. :) I prefer flowers in a pot, but don't have a place for those. Or herb plants, fresh herbs for delicious homemade cooking is romantic.

A don't, however my husband would love wine or chocolates and believe it or not candles. He loves candles almost as much as I do!

i would never give a boy flowers.... however i wish there was a male equivalent for a nice gesture you can take a girl all the usual cliche's - flowers, chocolate, wine, candles but what do you get a boy as a nice 'hi' gift beer or wine? what else?! this is the main question!!

I only replied don't because my boyfriend would probably think it was a waste of money. But something more masculine, like a bamboo plant bgorgeouss mentioned would be cool!

Amen bluebellknoll! My husband would be like "why did you waste money on this?" haha
bgorgeouss bgorgeouss 5 years
I voted no - I don't know any guy who dreams of receiving flowers from his girlfriend! That said, I did give my boyfriend a bamboo plant once (it was after a conversation we had about it bringing good luck), and he really appreciated it and still has it on his desk!

I think my husband would be much happier with a 6-pack of beer than flowers. :)

No for my husband. I don't think he'd even know to put flowers in a vase with water! ;)

Personally, I consider it a don't. I would never do that. Also, I agree with Hypnoticmix -- sending flowers would appeal to metrosexuals and homosexuals. Neither one I would be dating, as they're not my type.

I think it's safe to say that unless you're dealing with a metro-sexual or homosexual this is a don't. However, cool flowering house plants usually tropical because they're more masculine looking I think are cool.

Wow I'm the first. Seriously, no flowers for guys? Maybe my husband is an exception but he really likes getting flowers. I think for some men it's so unexpected that it's nice.
