Default Male equivalent of flowers?

What's a nonsexual equivalent of flowers for a man? I want to do something to show love and appreciation with some romance today. I'm getting home late so it can't be dinner either. He already has beer. Ideas?

Wow....I'm sitting here wondering what would make me feel the same as a woman would when she gets unexpected flowers and I'm coming up empty. I'm not a "gift person" though.

A gift card somewhere? Lowe's, Home Depot? I think an unexpected provacative text would do more for me that a gift card though.

Well said from top to bottom.

Not to be cliche, but does he have a favorite sports team that he's passionate about? Maybe memorabilia, or some "swag" for the office or vehicle.

We have an issue with me being HD and he is LD so if I do anything sexual it seems kind of selfish. I know it's bizarre.
Maybe I'll get him flowers.

Maybe one of those edible arrangements that has a bouquet of fruit or candy or cookies?

A 12 pack of his favorite beer, bottle of his favorite liquor, golf balls, a new electronic gadget, tools, etc...

Pretty much anything that he is into.

What would do it for me, a "Thank You"; no card, no gift, just a sincere thanks

Beer. A selection of microbrews. You can add a red bow, but it's not necessary.

Give him a back massage...it doesn't have to be s*xual. Or, make an appt for him to get a massage. At a legit place, of course.
