I have always taken pics, and if it's not a casual gift but something special, I give them a ball band or instructions so they can care for it properly, yes. With knitting, I plan to post it on my Rav account so I have the info on needles, yarn, etc.

When i was regularly sewing wedding gowns, I used to buy an extra yard of fabric and lace, and would wait to see if they had a baby while they were still in my ken...and then I'd make a christening gown out of the fabric!

Latest FO: A shrug for an Anthropologie swap in beautiful Casbah sock yarn, in Cedar, a dark green semi-solid, my own pattern. Also a quick Noro Silk Garden neckwarmer for my friend Aideen, in a vine lace pattern.
