That's wonderful! I am making stuff too. I make hankies for friends in cute Christmas flannels -paper dolls for the girls in my daughter's 2nd grade class. Cookies galore & fleece blankets . I make Christmas cards too. It's time consuming but, I always get the biggest thrill out of seeing the people close to me open the stuff that I've painstakingly made for them. It's really rewarding!

I thought about it, but I am not all that creative.

Yup! I made tile coasters for parents and aunts/uncles, and then parents are also getting a framed picture of dd, who's six months and first grandbaby (I found frames at walmart for $3 and my sister is taking the photos on Sunday)
