Gift Ideas for the Men in Your Life

Sometimes, shopping for a gift for men can be a challenge. After all, how many ties can one guy own? For a truly original take on gift-giving, try a plant or fresh flowers, hand-arranged and hand-delivered by a Teleflora florist. Flowers can be a great gift for men when you pick out the right selection for his personality. Browse our gift suggestions below, all with him in mind. Granted, flowers are traditional gifts for women and some flowers evoke femininity as nothing else can. But flowers aren't just about pink petals and frilly ribbons. Instead choose for men stronger shapes and bolder colors and stay away from pastels. Tropical inspired flowers and plants are good choices for guys.

To say that men wouldn't like the color, fragrance and texture of a flower is like saying men wouldn't appreciate the finer things in life. There are plenty of blooms out there that are appropriate for any man who likes to live well. And think of all the men you know who like to garden. Besides, giving a flower or plant means that you won’t have to worry about whether it's the right size or style and it definitely won't have to be tailored!

Another bonus is that everyone who shares his space, whether at home or at the office, can get an instant day brightener just by glancing at the arrangement. Send your husband, son, brother, uncle, grandpa or any other male relative or friend a gift to congratulate him on a promotion, to say "get well soon", to celebrate your anniversary or Father's Day.
