Men enjoy receiving flowers, but stereotypical ideas about certain colors are still prevalent in today’s culture. Your friend may not be crazy about pastel shades such as pink, lavender, minty green or pale yellow. As a general rule, it’s better to send “manly” types of flowers in purple, maroon, deep blue, or other rich, bold colors. Most men aren’t crazy about sweet-scented flowers, but a flower with a spicy scent may be just the ticket. For example, try purple or dark red carnations with a clove-like aroma. Instead of feminine crystal vases, look for a solid, natural container constructed of metal or wood.

I guess I’m a stereotypical man then. Receiving flowers really does nothing for me. If I get flowers and card for my birthday I’m more grateful for the gesture itself than the actual flowers. Luckily most people know me enough to realize this. Most times they bring me real potted plants most of the time without flowers, which I do appreciate.
