Send Football Themed Flowers For A Winning Husband

I don’t know about you, but my guy’s big into football. NFL, College… even the world of fantasy football has taken him over.

Sending a man flowers is almost taboo for some guys, but sending a man football themed flowers… suddenly he’s the hit of the office! Don’t ask me why, but there is a certain passion a man reserves for his team. You could buy him a dress in his favorite team’s colors and he’d probably wear it to the next big game, haha.

So for wives looking to send a little something special to their hubby’s office, football themed flowers are an obvious choice! Not only will they loveee the idea, but will show it off to all of their friends and co-workers.

If your hubby is in a fantasy league, send him flowers when he wins a big game, like the playoffs or the league championship Superbowl.  He will be thrilled you are taking an interest in his favorite hobby.

To send sports-themed flowers, contact your local florist and give them the team colors and mascot information. Although your florist may not have specific team items to use in the arrangement, they will have your colors in fresh flowers. For instance, the Cowboys themed flower arrangement (right) uses the colors blue and white and has a blue ribbon to set it off. (Silver ribbon would’ve been great on this one too!)

If you really want to surprise him, find out about his fantasy team. He would’ve picked a team name, colors and even a mascot — send him flowers based on that and maybe you’ll get some attention tonight instead of his roster!

  • fathers-day-basketGadgets & Gizmos: for the dad who always has the “newest” and “hottest” items on the market!! If your florist does not carry these items in the store, bring something in for them to incorporate into the elaborate, futuristic arrangement. Let your florist be as creative as they like by coming up with something new and unique that isn’t available in an “ordinary” flower arrangement or gift basket!
  • Grillin’ It Up: most dads are known as “King of the Grill.” A basket filled with grilling essentials and recipes is perfect for this guy.
  • Sports Galore: what father doesn’t have at least one sport he follows with the utmost dedication? Your florist can create a beautiful arrangement with flowers matching the team’s colors. Include some memorabilia for that team/sport or take tickets to your florist and ask her to tuck them into the arrangement.
  • Food, Food, and More Food: for the dad who loves to indulge himself! They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach; curb his appetite with a basket overflowing with gourmet foods. Your local florist may be willing to create a fruit/nut basket or even use chocolates and/or candy.
  • Popular Pasttimes: fishing, camping, golfing, running, bicycling, hiking… the list goes on! Dads find many ways to spend their spare time– what does your dad like to do? Most of these hobbies are nature related; ask the florist to create a rustic arrangement… perfect for dads that are on the go.
  • Play that Funky Music: music loving dads will go crazy for this theme! Choose a favorite artist, genre or decade to inspire the florist and let them voice their creative expression!  This fun theme could include tickets to a local concert or a CD tucked into the arrangement.
  • Cultural Buff: this guy is up to date on the latest and greatest movies, books, art and more.

Why Men Should Give Women Flowers

There is a kind of unspoken controversy over men giving women flowers. On one hand, you make the woman happy, on the other it could seem like you have ulterior motives. So, why should men give women flowers?

Penelope Trunk recently posted an article on her blog outlining several good reasons to give flowers:

1. Flowers Make The Giver Happy

This is so true. Flowers never fail to put a smile on the face of the giver and givee.

2. People think you are smarter if you’re a guy who gives flowers.

Believe it or not, studies show by sending flowers it gives the impression you a much more caring and emotionally intelligent.

3. You will be a better manager.

As she points out, not every bouquet means ‘I love you.’ You can send a bouquet of congratulations flowers for a job well done, or even use flowers to increase productivity by lowering stress and anxiety.

All of these are very good points that I’m sure all females would agree upon, but I still hear men arguing in the background! So for those unconvinced…

Listen up guys, when is it ever wrong to see your lady smile? It is never a bad thing to make the person you love happy and sending flowers always does the trick! If you think flowers are just a cliche gift without any spontaneity then you, my friend, are doing it wrong! Give gifts for reasons she wouldn’t expect.

Flower Arrangements For Men

Flower Arrangements For Men

For instance – a friend of mine’s husband was leaving on a trip, and she was not looking forward to coming home from work to find an empty house. Instead, when she opened the door there sat a beautiful bouquet of her favorite flowers. Not only had her hubby made her happy, she also did not feel as lonely as she would have without them. Not only was this spontaneous it showed he was really thinking about her.

There are so many reasons to give flowers … even if it is just a couple of stems you picked up at your local florist … they can really turn a bad Monday into a happy occasion with one simple gesture.

But you know, ladies, men aren’t the only ones who are skeptical about sending flowers. Guys enjoy getting them just as much as we do! (Though they may not admit it) Many florists offer dish gardens or garden planters. These are neat little containers with everything you need to keep a tiny desk garden at your office – men love these … (Much more manly than roses … )

There are so many reasons to give the gift of flowers and plants for men and women. So next time you are looking for something to cheer up your loved one, you know the perfect gift!
