My poor husband is both romantic and sentimental, however. After thirty years of marriage he's still trying to find romantic gifts I would like, and I am still telling him, "I like practical. The necklace is cute, but we can't afford it and I really wanted a mop."
Same for my husband. I'm not into jewelry, perfumes and other things women generally want for gifts. Though flowers are ok (but I would tell him 1 rose is as pretty as a dozen). He had courted me with roses so it was tradition for him to send me roses for V-day & our anniversary.
After a few years he stopped buying the jewelry, etc for birthday & Christmas and bought me practical things. At least I wanted some things he'd enjoy shopping for. Tools for MY toolbox, electric tools and a staple gun.
