A Guys Guide to Sending Flowers

For the man who thinks, 'it's a jungle out there' when it comes to buying or sending flowers, our simple tips from the girls will pave the way:

Be Spontaneous!
Guys Flowers

If you really want to make us feel special, surprise us! Anniversaries, birthdays and Valentine’s Day are obvious occasions to send flowers and we are quite used to receive flowers at these times. In fact, we love it!

Why Wait for an Occasion?

Flowers given for no reason other than 'I was thinking of you today' make a huge impact on us, simply because they are unexpected. We love surprises!

Try Something New

Most of us are keenly aware of the multitude of flower varieties available and are eager to see new flowers first-hand. Why not consider sending some unusually coloured roses, like peach or yellow, or an arrangement of mixed exotic flowers?

Being innovative demonstrates that you have consciously thought of a way to delight and surprise us, not simply sent something we will be merely satisfied with; plus - your originality will not go unnoticed!

Don’t be Predictable, it May be More Expensive

It is a classic case of supply and demand when the price of roses peak around Valentine's Day.. so why not surprise us by sending your gift a week earlier, with a card saying 'Couldn’t wait to spoil you. Let’s celebrate our Valentine’s Day tonight!' The unpredictability of your actions may be seen as even more romantic and thoughtful. Roses flourish in spring and summer and Roses Only often offer great value specials during these months. All the more reasons to be spontaneous!

Flowers Don’t Mean Commitment

Yes, this is true that long stem RED roses are traditionally linked to romance and love, however, the card message will really determine your feelings and intentions towards us, so please relax and just send us some gorgeous, red roses. We love them regardless!

Roses of other colours do not necessarily have this romantic stigma attached. Simply select roses based on colours that we like or wear often, or perhaps the colours that are most dominant in our home or office. Another option is to send a flower arrangement or bouquet of mixed flowers, as these gifts are suitable for all occasions.

A Flower Gift for Everyone?

From romantic to friendly to 'something in between', flowers are a gift suitable for all recipients and great choice for all occasions such as anniversaries, birthdays, the birth of a new baby, sympathy gifts and more.

Sending flowers is a great way to express many thoughts and feelings:

Pink Roses
  1. Thank You
  2. I'm Sorry
  3. Get Well
  4. Congratulations
  5. Good Luck
  6. I Miss You
  7. I Love You
  8. Thinking of You
  9. Welcome Home
Can I Send Flowers to my Work Colleagues and Clients?

Sending flowers to colleagues and clients is becoming increasingly popular and is seen as a professional way to show your appreciation and thanks. However, do ensure that the card message expresses your true sentiment. To find out about the Roses Only Group's range of imaginative suggestions for your corporate gifting call one of our dedicated Corporate Services team on 1300 767 376 or email us on

How do I Get the Best Reaction?

Go for gold! If you really want to make a statement, send the flowers to our work address. We will be the envy of all our colleagues and you - the apple of our eye.

Flowers are Never Boring

Because of their infinite diversity and unique appeal, flowers can be given time and time again without losing their 'specialness'. Each new floral arrangement is a fresh and individual declaration of appreciation, reflecting positively on your imagination and thoughtfulness.

Be Prepared

When ordering with Roses Only, have all the delivery details ready. Sending flowers to 'a gorgeous blonde girl with green eyes working on level 3' is not sufficient. There may be many of us on level 3 fitting the description. Make sure you know our name and a surname, name of the company we work for, and have your payment details (credit card or paypal) on hand.

A Gift of Roses Only goes a Long Way

Every woman remembers the last time she received flowers; we treasure this moment forever. You not only score 'brownie points' with us, but also with our friends and family, as we will be the envy of all our co-workers and friends and they will never stop asking us questions.

Ask Roses Only for Advice

Selecting flowers may be a bewildering experience for the uninitiated man. If in doubt, phone Roses Only for advice on 1300 767 376 (international: +61 2 8415 9206) or contact us via email.
