What Every Man should Know about Giving Flowers

We wonder how many men have seen the disappointed look on a woman’s face when her man gives her the wilted overpriced flowers from a petrol station! If you’re desperate to make a great impression, flowers can be the answer, but it also needs some thought. When sending your loved one flowers, it’s important to follow a few tips, and luckily for you, we’ve listed a few below…

When to give flowers

Why wait for the big occasions such as Valentine’s Day or birthdays? It’s much nicer to be spontaneous and to give flowers at any time! Whether you send them to the recipient’s door or to their place of work, online florists allow you to purchase beautiful blooms online, many of which can be sent via next-day flower delivery.

What not to do

Many men wait until the last possible moment to buy flowers for a special occasion, and often miss the boat, as many brick and mortar florists close at 5pm. This is when buying flowers online using the same or next day delivery option is a blessing. You can order an array of bouquets, tailored to various tastes and events, all at the click of a button. Presenting your loved one with pretty blooms is a guaranteed way to put a smile on their face and is certain to put them in a great mood.

When to buy her flowers

Don’t use flowers as a way to say sorry – it’s a given that some give flowers when something is wrong. Instead, buy your partner, friend, or date flowers just because you feel like it! Surprising them with a bouquet after a long day of work or prior to a date is a great way to add a little joy into their day.

Just because

You don’t want to be that predictable guy! You want to keep romance blossoming, surprise her and keep her wondering. These things aren’t achieved by once a year of flowers. You may even wish to set up a monthly flower subscription for that special someone, especially if you work overseas or if you’re in a long-distance relationship.

Third date

Some girls can be a little wary of flowers presented on the first date, and even on the second. It’s best to get to know each other a little better first, and a bouquet will then make a great addition to a third date. It may seem old fashioned, but the truth is, we all love receiving flowers and you will never disappoint a loved one when presenting them with beautiful blooms.


We’ve already stated that flowers don’t need an occasion, however, they’re also a great option to give on an occasion – such as birthdays, anniversaries, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, and as a way to say congratulations. All of these events are acceptable times to give a floral gift.

Being savvy about it

If you’re savvy and look online, you will discover a huge range of blooms including flowers for all occasions. If you’re unsure of which bouquet to choose, online florists such as Serenata Flowers are certain to give you a little inspiration. The best part? They offer same and next day delivery and have something to suit all budgets.

Don’t overthink it

People like to joke about how complicated women are, yet the right flowers at the right time can melt even the most intricate woman’s heart (we hope)! When you know how, what to look for, and where to get a bouquet for less than what you would spend on lunch, it’s a simple yet effective gift.

Choosing the right bouquet

When it comes to choosing the right bouquet, think about her favourite hue and her favourite bloom. If you’re unsure of either, consider her style or decor. If it’s very classic and minimalistic, opt for a sophisticated bouquet in muted hues. If she’s more eclectic in style, choose a tropical bunch of blooms brandishing a variety of hues. Regardless of which flowers to give, you can’t really go wrong, as the majority of blooms promise to add colour and fragrance to the home and it’s always important to remember that it’s the thought that counts.

Returning home to a bouquet of beautiful blooms or opening the door to a delivery of them is an instant pick me up and is a present that is certain to make the recipient feel loved, special and provide an instant surge of happiness. And when cared for correctly, they’ll last for many days, meaning they’ll continue to put a smile on her face all week!

Delivering flowers

The Office Delivery: Sending flowers to her work is a great thing to do if you wish to impress someone, whilst making them feel special, as the entire office will likely make her centre of attention for the day. Online florists will deliver to any address, including the office address.

To her home: Sending flowers to her home address is an easy feat when you order them online. You can even opt for the likes of letterbox flowers if you’re concerned that she won’t be in to receive them. This way, they will be waiting for her on her doormat when she arrives home.
