I made a scarf for my husband 35 years ago. It took a while to knit, but it turned out really well. It's now my daughter's favorite winter item. She loves it.

I made a delicious dinner for my wife last year. I cooked some of her favorite dishes, including steak and salmon. She was very happy with the meal.

I gave my husband a watch and wallet one year, so now whenever he looks at the time or buys something he always thinks of me.

I made coupons for my mom when I was a kid. They were for chores around the house. I made one which said I would be quiet for half an hour. She liked that one the best.

I like making things for people. I like cute things. I made a Christmas card for my family with a picture of Santa Claus on the front and a special message inside.
