While jewelry might be a good idea for most women, from my experience it really depends on how "high-maintenance" she is. If you see her wearing jewelry all of the time, then yes, probably a good idea. If all she ever wears is earrings though, that might be a bad choice - and an expensive one at that. Same thing with flowers - if she has told you in the past she loves them, then go for it, but I've come across more than a handful of girls in my circle of friends (myself included) that would much rather have a tangible, lasting item, than flowers that will die in a few days. Yes, they're pretty, but they're a waste of money ultimately.
General rule of thumb, unless she's a chef or has a freakish love of cleaning, don't buy her anything for housework or to use in the kitchen. Don't buy her anything she has to pour more money into (something that needs refills, or extra accessories) unless she specifically asks for them. And if she complains about her weight, don't buy chocolates. Don't tell her WHY you didn't buy them - just avoid it. That way, you also avoid the whole "Aww, these chocolates are yummy, but they go straight to my hips" conversation.
