Yes, men still open doors for women, and no, chivalry might be dying, but if you pay attention, you will notice it isn’t dead yet. What is an old and silly notion, however, is that something as decent and kind as showing respect (e.g., chivalry) is somehow gender-specific. So, do women give men flowers? Can women open doors, or can a woman give a man flowers without offending him?
Simply put, we live in a new age and a world with an entirely new set of social orders than what dominated societies for hundreds of years. That means that kindness, love, and acts of adoration are no longer based on gender or gender direction, but on the heart.
Do Men Get Flowers and Gifts?
The truth is, men have always been able to receive gifts. Unfortunately, there were a few periods throughout history where the world was so macho-dominated and chauvinistic that a man getting flowers from anyone, and, in particular, a woman, would have been frowned upon or mocked.
Today, can a woman give a man flowers isn’t the question. Now, the question is what kind of flowers are good for men to get. The answer will depend on the reason for the flowers or the occasion.
Popular Flowers for Men
If you have a special reason to send flowers, you may want to talk to your local florists about arrangements for funerals, birthdays, or other special occasions. If you are simply wanting to gift flowers to a man for no particular reason (or for more personal reasons), there are also some good choices.
Chrysanthemums are a good option for a flower that can be given for nearly any reason or occasion. These flowers are commonly used to express happiness, joy, and love. They can be offered as a simple hello to a special male interest, or just a thoughtful act of love for a childhood friend.
Roses are also another popular flower option for men and can range from expressions of love and passion (red roses) to power and congratulations (white roses). So offer a rose to the love of your life or your friend or brother who just received that big promotion.
