Speaking about myself, making my own stuff is not only refreshening my soul but also a great opportunity to show beloved ones they're worth the time I put in crafting. I already planned on some stuff which, unfortunately, I can't show you in case some guys are spying. :P
I like this idea, especially for creative people. It's cheap, though I wouldn't think the idea is cheap.
You don't need to be a genius to make those slipper. Craftynest.com shows you how. You just need time.
One-of-a-kind woolen gifts by Marthasteward.com are very smart.
Can you crochet? I tried and failed because of lacking patience :/ But these owl coasters are just adorable! If you can make them, would you mind sending one to me? Oh come ooon.. please!
Maybe something for your mom. I assume they're easy to make! Check out http://media-cache-ec2.pinterest.com/upload/230879918366517358_lOjCidoY_c.jpg

The diy bride had a great idea of envelope liners to make your envelope more personal. Nobody will throw that away...
More coasters! This one was posted on my favourite craft website, cutoutandkeep.net! I really thought about making some. Follow the link for a How-to.
I love this idea of a bow. But I don't know the source...
Sooo witty! I love this idea! - http://shealynnbenner.com/2012/05/tutorial-7-spray-painted-doily-canvas/
I hope you can use somet of these or maybe at least one. I would make them all. If I had time.
