Is there an appropriate gesture for a favorite shop that is closing?

One of my favorite coffee shops is closing their doors after many years in business. I'm thinking of getting something for the proprietors to thank them for their many years of brightening my mornings with caffeine and conversation, but I'm not quite sure what would be appropriate.

I really will miss this coffee shop and the people who run it. I had thought that a gift certificate and a card for the three of them might be nice, but then I was wondering if a bottle of wine would be more appropriate and/or suitable for a wake. I assume that a Starbucks card would be right out.
Alternatively, is it just too weird? Maybe the last thing they want is a reminder, it's going to be difficult enough as it is on the store's last day in operation...
