Is a homemade gift a good way to show a guy I'm interested?

I like a guy. I don't know how he feels about me. Would it be weird to make him a gift?

So I have known this guy socially for about six months, though we're not super close, we do run in the same/similar circles. He's an outgoing and flirtatious guy, and I can't figure out whether he likes me or just is a nice, flirtatious, but uninterested guy. He has done various things that made me feel like he might be interested and others that indicate he might not be. Every time I am presented with an opportunity to find out, I become frozen in abject terror and completely unable to act or speak. (Already in therapy so don't even). I would really like to show him that I'm interested without making things awkward or unfomfortable for him/ our future, unavoidable interactions if he's not. I haven't yet gotten to a place where I can ask him out.
He was recently in a minor car accident and has been having some neck and back pain. I want to make him an oat-bag. I thought I could add some EOs to make it smell a little bit like his favourite ice cream. Is this a good idea? Bad idea? Too subtle? Not subtle enough? Too "friend"ly and not "I realy like you"? Coming on too strong?
Yes, I know I am overthinking this because my fear has caused me to lose all perspective. Please offer some perspective for me. Anonymous because I get incredibly, painfully embarassed and sensitive and terrified about my feelings with these kinds of things.
