  • Does dad love cycling or going to the gym? Why not build an arrangement in an old pair of sneakers? Or maybe a gym bag. Pair this will a gift card to the gym or a new pair of workout clothes.

Think Flowers Aren’t For Dad? Think Again!

There seems to be a strange, unnecessary stigma floating around flowers for men. Why do you think that is? Do men not like flowers — of course they do! (No one grows more roses than my dad!) Maybe we think they’d be embarrassed receiving something so beautiful?  The trick is to find the RIGHT design to match your Pops!

Out of the Woods - Father's Day Flowers

Out of the Woods

This is the perfect choice for a nature-loving Dad. It uses sticks, twigs and moss to create a rustic feel any outdoorsman would appreciate. If you really want to man-it-up, as special instructions, ask your florist to use more or only green, brown and his favorite colored flowers.

Fisherman Flowers for Father's Day

Flowers of Distinction

There is something about this arrangement that reminds me of fishing. Perhaps it’s the unique leucadendron that looks like a plant you’d see swishing back and forth at the bottom of a lake. Imagine a few fishing lures dangling from the raffia, and you’ve got yourself a fisherman’s dream, if fishermen dreamed in flowers. (Who’s to say they dont?!)

High Style - Father's Day Flowers

High-Style Horsetail

This geometric wonder would be ideal for the stylish dad. Just think, if you’re dad is an architect, graphic designer or just likes style, this would be a perfect choice. I could see this design sitting on the desk of a doctor, lawyer or any sleek and sophisticated business owner.

3 Fabulous Fathers Day Arrangements

Yeah, there pretty much isn’t a less-than-fabulous Fathers Day arrangement in Flower Shop Network’s photo gallery. With that in mind, we racked our brains and came up with what we think are the three MOST fabulous Father’s Day flower arrangements ever. Lucky for your dad, all of these flowers are available from your local florist.

"You're The Greatest" Fathers Day Flowers

It’s really easy to tell Dad how much he means to you with an arrangement like the “You’re The Greatest” Father’s Day flowers. Fans of Babe Ruth may find this especially significant. Fathers day flowers like these are a real treat because they are brightly colored, full, contemporary and just masculine enough to make Dad feel joyful about receiving flowers.

"Artistic Tribute" Fathers Day Flowers

Father’s Day flowers don’t get much more in line with what Dad wants than the “Artistic Tribute” contemporary flower arrangement. This arrangement just screams “buy me for Dad!” The high-style “Artistic Tribute” Fathers Day flowers are nothing short of architecturally amazing, visually stimulating, and emotionally satisfying for the father whose child is you.

"Fiery Red Topiary" Fathers Day Flowers

Dad a sports fan? Then he’ll love the “Fiery Red Topiary” for Father’s Day! Flowers like these create a stylish display for every sporty dad. The fiery red color is right in line with the St.  Louis Cardinals, Atlanta Braves and other teams (it is baseball season after all.) Ask for a black ribbon or raffia instead and it’s the colors of the Atlanta Falcons! Whatever his team, whatever his sport, your local florist can create a beautiful topiary like this for your dad. Just ask if a color substitution is possible.

Love Your Dad? Send Him This Artistic Tribute

Corny lines aside, this is an awesome flower arrangement. I took one glimpse at the “Artistic Tribute” flower arrangement for Fathers Day and was taken back to memories of Daddy and me. You don’t have to twist my arm. I’ll share them with you. *smile*

"Artistic Tribute" Fathers Day Flowers

My dad is a big fan of architecture. Aside from military aircraft and Sherlock Holmes, it’s the only discussable thing we really have in common. Frank Lloyd Wright has been the subject of many conversations between us. We’ve often planned a trip to Falling Water. Pennsylvania is quite out of the way this year but I still want to let Dad know that we have a mutual interest. I want him to know that I love architecture the same way that he does and look forward to celebrating amazing pieces with him during a daddy-daughter road trip.

So why the blather about architecture? Take a look at the “Artistic Tribute” arrangement and you’re hooked. It is loaded with beauty. Its form stands out, grabs attention, and loudly portrays the best things about clean lines and linear form. This is not your average flower arrangement. This is a man’s flower arrangement. My dad being the John Wayne type anyway, I know he’ll appreciate this Fathers Day gift from his little girl.

Now what to put on the card?

Speaking of card messages, Fathers Day is June 21st. View several Fathers Day enclosure card messages to send with your gifts.

Fathers Day Card Messages For The World’s Best Dad

I absolutely adore my dad. My daddy is the coolest guy in the world (to me at least) but I have trouble telling him exactly how I feel about him. I could chock it up to sharing his non-touchy-feely-emotional personality, but it still amounts to the same thing-what do I say?!?!

My friends had suggested getting my dad some Fathers Day flowers and putting a sweet message on the enclosure card. Dad loves contemporary arrangements but more than anything he likes knowing that his “little girl” will always be his “baby.” Not to go into too much sappy sentiment about my father, I’ve decided to definitely send flowers. Now the predicament becomes figuring out what to put on the card. For this reason I asked local florists what they thought were the best Fathers Day card messages that they’ve seen. The results were heartwarming.

When sending Fathers Days flowers, local florists have found that the best enclosure card messages are those from the heart. In the interest of sharing-because that’s what Daddy taught me-I’ve included their top choices below. Feel free to share or add your own!

Florists Choice:  Top Fathers Day Card Messages For Dear Ole Dad

1)       Thanks for giving me the best things in life: Your time, your care, and your love. Happy Fathers Day.

What A Guy Wants – Flowers Of Course!

Flowers For HimYou know there is song about what a girl wants, how about what a guy wants? Most men and women all want one thing – appreciation. Yes, it is that simple. Everyone wants to be appreciated.  But, how do we show appreciation to the men in our lives? With flowers of course! Think about how you love to receive flowers, the way they make you feel appreciated and loved.  Not to mention, research has demonstrated the mood boosting power of flowers for both men and women.  So, a bouquet of flowers will give him the same wonderful feeling you get from a special flower delivery.

How To Find The Right Gifts For Men

Finding the right gift for your guy doesn’t have to be difficult. It just takes a bit of thought as to what he might enjoy and an element of surprise. An unexpected gift such as flowers will surprise him and keep him thinking of you all day. As you know, flowers come in a plethora of varieties, colors, textures and fragrances. So, when deciding what to send, think about his favorite color, scent, hobby and other personality defining things. Then call your local florist and describe your guy and the flower ideas that you think he will like.  Not sure about what type of flowers to send? Don’t worry, your florist has a million ideas and they will be happy to create something perfect for your guy. In fact, florists have containers, colors and textures that have a masculine appeal.

Special Occasion Gifts For Men With A Twist

Looking for a gift for a special occasion such as Valentines Day or your anniversary? Send him a dozen roses in his favorite color.  If roses aren’t available in his favorite color, have the florist wrap them in paper or ribbons in that color.  For a special twist add an element of anticipation when sending flowers.  Before delivery remove three or four roses from the dozen with a note on the enclosure card that says “To my love, this is really a dozen, the ones missing are with a special surprise that will be waiting for you at home tonight.” The surprise at home is up to you; let your imagination go wild. I guarantee your man will feel very loved and appreciated as he anxiously awaits his evening surprise.

Flowers For Dad

Gifts For Dad That Say “I Love You”

When distance keeps you from celebrating with dad in person, a special gift is needed to show him how much you love and miss him.  Sending dad flowers is great way to say “I love you” and “I’m thinking of you.”  Flowers will brighten his day adding to the special memories he has of you. Every time your dad walks by or looks at the flowers, he will be reminded that you are always thinking of him. Nothing is better than that feeling. It’s as near to a hug as you can give.

Gifts That Boost Morale

Is the man in your life having a work problem? One that a boost in problem solving energy might fix? A 2003 Texas A&M study found that flowers in the work place boosted a man’s creative problem solving skill (reading productivity) by 15%.  This is only one of the morale boosting benefits of flowers.

According to the Society of American Florist 60% of men surveyed said they enjoyed receiving flowers. Think about it 60% of men want you to send flowers to them. That means if you know 10 men, 6 of them want flowers. Maybe your boss,  your husband or boyfriend is one of the six.  It could even be your co-worker who covered for you during that long lunch break. I suspect the other 4 guys simply don’t know how good it feels to receive flowers or are afraid to admit they want flowers. So boost some morale and send flowers today to a guy you know.

Really? Send Him Flowers

Still apprehensive about sending a man flowers. There is no need to be. Sure it’s out of the ordinary and not at all expected. Those are the very reasons why you should send flowers. Giving flowers to men is great way to say “I love you,” “I’m sorry,” “Thanks,” as well as any other reason you can think including “just because”. Remember flowers will let him know that you are thinking of him.

Father Day FlowersFor the first timers, here are a few guidelines to follow. Men tend to like less elaborate flower arrangements. Stay more in line with linear arrangements and  nothing too “frilly” or delicate. Roses are an excellent choice, as well as carnations and daisies. Men enjoy tropical flowers like Bird of Paradise or flower arrangements with an outdoorsy feel.

This type of arrangement is a man pleaser with its a rectangular glass vases strong foliage (pittosporum and hosta leaves), peach lilies, bi-colored rust peach roses, gerberas and fantastic texture with blades of lily grass and dried lotus pods. This rich and intense arrangement speaks to men.

Still a bit shy about sending men flowers? Don’t be. However, you can always test the waters by sending a blooming plant. The most important thing to remember is that men, just like women, want that feeling of appreciation, love and that feel good feeling that somebody was thinking of them.

With the many types of flowers that a florist can use to make a fun, flirty or even a friendly arrangement for a man, you have a multitude of gift giving options and opportunities. There are so many reasons to send a man flowers: for his birthday, for fathers day or “just because.”  My personal favorite is the “just because.”  Why? Because it lets my husband know I’m thinking of him and it gets me something in return – an extra special hug and kiss from a very appreciative husband.  Remember flowers are a way to send a hug. So, contact your local florist and send flowers to your guy today.
