Father’s Day is approaching. Do you know what you’ll be giving dad? Have you thought about offering him flowers?
Sometimes, fathers end up with gifts that speak of the traditional man or a macho personality. But, there are plenty of men who love sensitivity and beauty, and don’t fit into a male stereotype. For these dads (and really for any dads), why not present flowers as a token of affection and appreciation?
If you’re considering giving flowers for Father’s Day, the following are some floral ideas and a few tidbits of father-figure trivia for you.
Flowers to Give for Father’s Day
Any flowers that convey your message of love to your dad are perfect for giving on Father’s Day. Some popular blooms for gifting on this holiday include roses, which offer reverence and gratitude, and flowers that make a bold statement like tropical varietals.
Consider flowers that are large, showy, and bright if your father often displays these kinds of characteristics. Think about gifting bird of paradise, lilies, or tulips in these instances. If dad is soft-spoken, introspective, and overflowing with compassion, opt for gentle blossoms like violets, orchids, or baby’s breath.
Father’s Day Fun Facts
Did you know that red and white roses are thought by many to be the official Father’s Day flowers? It’s common for some people wear one white rose in order to honor a deceased father. A red rose is worn to pay respect to a living dad. Give these stunners, if you like, or go with something different and unexpected like a single peony or even a bougainvillea plant.
