One of the most thoughtful BF's I ever had would bring me my favorite hair products or fill my fridge with my favorite vegetarian foods. I called it bringing me flowers because the thought was the same (he was thinking of me). I know it took way more effort to do what he did and I appreciated it way more than flowers or chocolates.
I get food gifts all the time at work but I usually give them away or share with my coworkers since I am a vegetarian and have some food allergies so I won't chance having a reaction.
I always appreciate the gifts because it means that someone thought enough of me to actually get a gift for me. That thought means way more to me than whatever the gift is.
