Is there a way to send files directly to Google drive from Gmail?
Google itself does not provide any such facility. Anyhow, what you are asking is completely possible by using ifttt.com.
I have setup a service to provide such a feature very simply: https://www.emailitin.com/ - just click Sign In, link your Google Drive account, and you'll be given a custom email address to use for this purpose.
