Being a hopeless romantic, there’s always one thing that’s stumped me…

…what’s the male equivalent of buying a girl flowers?

Now I’m sure there are guys out there who wouldn’t mind being given flowers, just as there are girls out there who wouldn’t appreciate flowers – but there’s no generic equivalent for us to fall back on for guys!

I suppose I could go down the route of ‘little trinkets every now and then’, or cooking meals out of the blue – but they both don’t quite have that same effect as a bunch of roses and a box of chocolates!

But in today’s world, with women becoming more and more equal to men, surely we can be a bit romantic too? The only question is what gift to give…
