It is possible that you may be misconstruing courtesy and kindeness for love. I treat almost all girls like that because it makes them feel special but I am very clear on boundaries. He may think of you as just a friend. If this is so, don't be disheartened, guys (like me in particular lol) don't realise when a girl is attracted to them and can sometimes confuse things a friend might do to things a person who has a crush on you does.
You may want to sutbly hint to this guy (maybe not to subtly) that you like him. Just drop things like, 'You're a really great guy, you know that?' into conversation. If he responds something along the lines of 'you're a great friend' or 'You're good too' he probably doesn't see you as anything more then a friend.
I hope things work out for you. You should also remember that if he doesn't like you more then a friend, it doesn't mean that no one likes you, just that one guy.
As for keeping presents, I'd see that as common courtesy. If someone (be it boy or girl) put in effort to make a present for me, I'd keep it. I don't think it neccessarily means he likes you more then a friend but I'd say he definately likes you in some way.
