You are out of ideas of what gift you should make to a close person? I am going to give you one simple tip: painted mug/cup. It's easy fun and you can customize depending of the person's hobbies, wishes. You are going to need a porcelain marker and a cup or a mug, you can make it on a plates or other porcelain things.
Practice you skills of painter and start drawing something nice. I chose of course a cute drawing with a dog.
And this is is, simple and fun, right? So try it for you own , it's worth it :)
