Do you ever feel when someone invites you over and says do not bring anything you have to bring something?

I do not feel comfortable going to someone and not bringing anything. They are feeding and I cannot come empty handed. I am going to a friend next week for Hannuka and since we could not meet for our birthdays I could not give her her presents. I am bringing jelly donuts for them but feel I had to do something else.I pulled a free picture out of google for Hannuka and put it on a placemat and put Happy Hannuka on it for them. It is not my creation, but, it is something. I tried to do my own but just did not work out. So, how many of you feel you have to bring something to someone you visit?

But it is still your creation. You made it with your heart! To me a gift from the heart is much more valuable than a gift that was purchased in a rush. I would much rather receive the gift you created, it shows that it truly comes from a loving heart. Yes, I still take things even though I am told not to.
I have a machine to do laminating and a program to design something to put on the placemat. I really do not feel good about not doing my own design but I do not have a lot of paper left to use. The paper I bought will not go in my printer so will go back and tell him and bring a piece to show him what I need. Thank you Toni. I feel very good if it is my creation and not a picture got from somewhere else. I had to do something and was sad that the paper I bought does not work and do not have much left. Thank you so much Toni.
