Valentine’s Day is almost here, and while pink teddy bears might not be the best choice of gift for your beau, flowers are actually a great, yet unexpected option! As it turns out, most men actually really like to receive a nice floral arrangement — especially those who choose to send them, too! If you’re not sure what to get for your boyfriend or husband this Valentine’s Day, don’t worry. Our romance experts at Busch’s Florist in Jefferson City are here to help you out with some wonderfully unique gift ideas.
5 Interesting Valentine’s Day Gifts for Guys
1. Red Roses
Red roses are the classic symbol of romantic love, which makes them perfect for anyone — man or woman — on Valentine’s Day. For your beau, we recommend choosing an arrangement without baby’s breath, a flower with a more feminine profile, and pairing your red roses with a sturdier bloom, instead. The opulent white calla lilies in the Be Still My Heart bouquet create the perfect look.

2. Potted Plants
A live plant is a Valentine’s Day gift that keeps on giving, as they’ll flourish for many years to come. You can choose any easy to care for a potted plant like blooming, exotic orchids, a dish garden of succulents, or a bamboo plant for good luck in love. These look great in an office or at home and help keep the air fresh and clean. Plus, your sweetheart will be reminded of you whenever he waters his new plant.

3. Vibrant Flowers
If you’d like to send flowers, but want to go for an arrangement that’s unique for Valentine’s Day, we recommend choosing designs that feature vibrantly colored blooms, rather than flowers in pastel shades. You can go for a monochromatic design, like the Lily Sunshine bouquet, which features all yellow lilies. Our Bright Smiles bouquet is also great with pops of warm primary colors.
4. Fondue Pot
If you’re after a gift with a little less green, you might as well make your way to your special guy’s heart through his stomach with a gift for the kitchen – a fondue set. All the rage in the 1970s, fondue has made a comeback in a major way. Your man will love dipping all sorts of delicacies into melted cheese or chocolate.
5. French Press
If your man fancies himself a coffee connoisseur, then a fancy French press will make a great Valentine gift for him. Plus, you can enjoy sipping coffee from the freshly brewed beans, too!
Why You Should Choose Flowers for Your Guy This Valentine’s -Day
If you’re hoping to enjoy an extra-romantic Valentine’s Day this year, then flowers are the right choice for your man because studies have actually shown that men who receive flowers become more communicative. They make better eye contact, stand closer, and even smile more — all ingredients for a magical holiday.
Where to Find a Great Gift for Your Man This Valentine’s Day
When ordering flowers, it’s always best to choose a local flower shop, instead of a national floral delivery company. With a local florist, there’s no middleman, and you’ll actually speak with a person at the flower shop when you order. You can always expect to receive exceptional service and high-quality products. Plus, you’ll never get hit with an unexpected delivery fee or processing charge.
