Good Thank-you Gift?

I'm trying to find a good thank-you gift for my former English professor who is going away to grad school, so I thought I'd ask you English grad students for some advice. =)

He was so generous with his time in helping me last quarter. I was the only who received an A in his class, and I could not have gotten it without his help. Anyway, at the end of the quarter, I gave him a box of chocolates and a thank-you card. He seemed kind of touched since, honestly, most of his students think he's mean, and he realizes this (he told us this). However, he was like, my favorite prof.

My main reason for finding him a gift is because he offered to write me three letters of recommendations personalized to the schools to which I'm applying; most profs write only one and make copies. Plus, he's leaving my 2-year school for graduate school in Digital Literacies and Literature in Texas, and I want my gift to be one conveying this: good bye, good luck, and thank you.

What gift would be good? Should I get something that would complement his going away to grad school? If so, what? If not, what should I get?

Oh, and he is very sarcastic, cynical, and rational.

Thank you for your time.

Maybe a gift card to Amazon.com or a book store?
