But the people who dislike flowers... is that only because they're the ones buying the flowers instead of receiving them? Traditionally, flowers are a gift to women from men... but what do men get? What do they want instead of flowers? Or do they actually just want flowers?

A good sandwich. I was on my way to visit my girlfriend 3 hours away this weekend, and she called and asked if i wanted a grilled cheese waiting for me when i got there. What an exciting gift that was. - Jefffahfffah
Male equivalent to flowers is probably money spent on a hobby. I bought my wife an expensive ring for our 8 year anniversary. She bought me a £18 switch game. Good trade I think. - Jamesxxxiii
Any gift that shows you actually listen to what they say goes a long way. I dated a woman once who noticed I drank a lot of seltzer water and felt bad when I didn't finish cause it went flat. She got me these can toppers off Amazon that was a couple dollars and meant more to me than most anything I've ever received. - ToHolyMountain85
Hugs. - Dralion2k
Honestly, the only time I've ever felt like how I imagine others feel when they receive flowers, I had talked to a friend who lives far away the evening before about how I was having a hard time, and then she just turned up at my door to give me a hug before she had to go catch a bus to her parents' house.
Between the utter surprise at her of all people turning up at my door, to how needed that hug was, I was completely in love with her for a hot second there. - NomenNescio13

One girl used to make me bad ass gift baskets. Beef jerky, snacks, some nice pens, beard products, favorite candy, silly “coupons” Those baskets were some of the most thoughtful and enjoyed gifts I’ve ever received. - Bubbleguts420
I work as a first responder. One day we were sitting on the truck, stuck in traffic, in the downtown area. A woman walked up to my window and handed me a single rose, smiled, and told me to have a nice day. I didn't even know how to respond to that.
But I'll be damned if my day didn't get 1000% nicer after that. Im in my 40s. That was the only time I remember ever being given flowers, and I regularly think about how nice it felt. Most guys don't get random flowers. Guys should get more random flowers. - Archimedeeznuts

To me it would be a huge portion of pasta carbonara, but I'm Italian, I don't count as a regular person. - charliecharlieIDK
I buy my husband paper-wrapped meat. He says there’s something nostalgic about an old fashioned butcher who still wraps brats in paper. Highly recommend. - Medium-Put-4976
I was at a store after a long hot day at the sawmill. And the lady working the register told me I smelled so nice, like fresh cut cedar. I'm sure I blushed because all I smelled was my sweat. That was 7 years ago. 😳 - EbenCommando
I got my ex a shower beer holder. I’ve never seen that man so stoked. - VividDreamsInPink
If it's from my gf/a girl I like it doesn't matter, as long as it's not something I really hate. Once my crush gifted me a not so special piggy bank. It has been my favorite piggy bank for the past 10 years. Once my gf (now ex) gifted me a very regular mug, it's still my favorite mug - given we did broke up peacefully tho. - lan0028456
A potted plant to use for fresh spice/garnish. If a woman gave me a basil plant, I’d probably propose on the spot. - Spongpad
I bought my now husband a tiny plant only 2 weeks into knowing him. It’s in our yard now and massive almost 22 years later! - Beccadrummer

Ngl, I never received flowers in my life and I would actually appreciate it a lot if someone just gave me a bouquet of flowers just because I never received any. - athnme
Flowers. Real talk, give men more flowers. As an ex florist i can count on maybe one hand the number of times I delivered flowers to a guy that weren't condolences or funeral flowers. And each and every one of them lit up like you wouldn't believe. - LordBirdperson
