Help me think of some simple gestures of appreciation for a friend who is giving me free music lessons.

A musician friend has been giving me guitar lessons. He specifically did not want to be paid, but I've been trying to bring him something small each time we get together as a token of appreciation. My default is baked goods, but that gets old and I am running out of ideas. He is in his early 60s, very educated, lives alone, obviously into music (mostly bluegrass and folk).
I'm looking for small things I could make him that would be either useful or a pleasant surprise for him when we meet. Food suggestions are okay, but preferably on the healthier side and freezable. Think simple, wholesome gestures: for example, if I had a tomato plant I would love to bring him tomatoes or a jar of home-made sauce (note to self: start tomato plants.)
Thanks for any suggestions. Our lessons have been really enriching for me and I just want to reciprocate in some small way.
