A Man’s Guide To Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to celebrate love, but for many men, navigating the realm of romantic gestures can feel like uncharted territory. Fear not, gentlemen, for this Valentine’s Day guide is tailored just for you. Unlock the secrets to making this holiday truly special.

First and foremost, let’s talk flowers—the timeless language of love! While roses are a classic choice, consider exploring blooms like orchids or lilies that reflect your partner’s unique personality. We’ve got you covered — find the perfect bouquet for your sweetheart in our Valentine’s Day collection!

Next up, is the art of gifting. Beyond traditional chocolates and jewelry, consider a personalized touch that speaks volumes. Whether it’s a custom piece of art, a hand-written love letter, or an adventure that resonates with your Valentine, thoughtful gestures leave a lasting impression and bring you closer together. 

Lastly, don’t forget the power of planning. A carefully orchestrated evening, complete with a romantic dinner or a surprise outing, can elevate the celebration to new heights. Remember, it’s not just about the gifts, but the effort and intention behind them.

Choosing The Perfect Flowers


If you are having trouble with picking a color, find out what her favorite color is, or try and match her personality. If she is spontaneous and carefree, then choose a bright color like a hot pink or orange. If she’s an old soul, consider a light pink or white. If she is strong and intense, choose a darker color like a deep red or burgundy. If she likes tradition, consider a classic red rose bouquet. 


Although roses are the number one flower sold on Valentine’s Day, other flowers are also a great fit for the occasion. If you are sending flowers to relatives, like a sister or mother, roses might not be appropriate. Instead, choose a nice bouquet of orchids or tulips. If you are in a new relationship and this is your first Valentine’s Day together, then a traditional bouquet of red roses may be appropriate, but if you have celebrated many Valentine’s Days together, a break from tradition is a nice surprise. 

Price and Quality

It might seem silly to spend so much money on a bouquet of flowers, but remember that your loved one will greatly appreciate the gift. Valentine’s Day only comes around once a year. Although it’s tempting to cut your costs and buy a bouquet from your local grocer, in doing so, you are choosing price over quality. The flowers might look okay at first they will quickly deteriorate once they are brought home. By buying flowers from Calyx Flowers, you will not only get guaranteed quality that lasts but also exceptional customer service and delivery.
