Giving a reward to a fellow employee for finding a lost item?

I lost my Fitbit at the office on Friday, after only having it for about two weeks. I put up a sign on the door leading out of the office area, not hoping for much, but got an email today from another employee letting me know that he had found it and would keep it safe for me until I'm back in the office tomorrow!
Anyway, I thought about getting him a card to Starbucks or something as a thank you, because I was pretty upset about losing the Fitbit (tiny but pricey at $100).
Reasons I had against this plan were :
1. I don't actually know who he is - I only started there in November, and it's a huge company. He works on my floor, but there's a gazillion people there too.
2. Maybe he doesn't like Starbucks?
Would you give him a small reward if you were in my shoes, or would a sincere thank you be enough?
