Man Gifts

I recently read in Cleo somewhere that from their research they found that up to 90% of guys secretly liked receiving flowers but would not openly admit to it. It was a bit of a surprise to me but seeing that this was published in Cleo it must be true! So there I was hatching a plan to buy Jacky the biggest and most colourful bunch of gerberas ever, when coincidently Kyle and Jackie O had a discussion about bad man gifts.

Jackie O’s husband Lee recently came back from overseas and she greeted him with a big bunch of flowers at the airport. Lee didn't even try to hide the fact that he thought it was a pretty lousy present, which came as a massive surprise to Jackie. So sparked the whole debate of ‘crappy male presents’.
In a quick survey around the office it would seem that flowers for a guy is a no no and my colleague compared it to buying a Mad Max dvd for his girlfriend. So does Cleo have their facts wrong?
