My ex collected a painter's work. The originals were very expensive and beyond my budget. For our wedding, i sought out the artist who lived around the globe. I befriended him and asked if he could paint me a commission for everything i had to spend, which was only 300.00. His work sells for about 10k. I sent him a photograph of the beach where my ex proposed marriage to me and he painted it. It is the only painting he has ever done of america. That was my gift. It still feels romantic to talk about it even though we are divorced...1
Oh, definitely girls are 'romantic' but it's not exactly the same way. From what I've seen not a lot of guys want girls to write them poetry; or make 'public declarations' of their love... it just gets awkward. But guys DO talk about how they want 'practical' gifts - cooking, laundry, help around the house.
Weirdly enough, girls run the risk of being 'too classically romantic' with a guy (like buying him sweets without reason or spoiling him with clothes/luxuries) which over time makes him feel 'guilted' - like he's not good enough in the relationship. From what I've seen, guys feel like that's 'their' territory and can trigger a lot of insecurities of not being 'equal' or 'good enough' in the relationship.2

I could imagine at least once in a while they do if they feel passionate, devoted, well-respected and romantic towards him. My girlfriend shares her romance with me in the form of spoiling me with my favorite candies, hand-drawn drawings with the two of us on it, an activity book for couples where we create our own pages and going to a super fancy dinner!
I don't expect her to be romantic like that around the clock as it can be mentally and possibly physically exhausting but its always nice to show your appreciation and romantic feelings towards your significant other here and there :) Usually guys are trying to make a good impression by showing their romantic interests to her so I can see why the reverse end of that question would be asked.1
