What kind of gifts your husbands/boyfriends give to you?

For example, Samuel de Champlain - the famous explorer and founder of Quebec city - who in the age of 45 married a fair maiden of 12 (yes, twelve), gave his young wife a tobacco pouch, made of the whole skin from human hand, and the nails where still attached. I don't know if he gave her flowers as well, or maybe just a card ("Here a little souvenir from our new acquisitions in Canadas, darling"), but I admire his thinking out of the box. I ones gave my husband for his birthday a huge Chinese vase. I bet that young M-me Champlaine was less surprised then my hubby.
