What to get my boyfriend as a general "you're awesome" present?

My boyfriend spoils me to death and I want to get him a present to show my appreciation for what a sweetheart he is. The problem is, I have no idea what to get him and he basically has the money to get anything he really wants.
We are long distance; I live in Seattle and he lives in NYC. He is 26, a UX designer, and he likes oatmeal and white chocolate macadamia cookies, comic books (like Batman), video games, going out to eat, music, and movies. He is both really social and pretty nerdy. He is not a very "manly man." He has gotten me presents that I use every day-- nice headphones (he already has some), an iPhone (he is up on new technology for his job and already has everything in this category, plus it's out of my budget), a loose leaf tea pot, and added me to his music streaming service. I would really love to get him something he can use every day.
He shops at Banana Republic, J.Crew, and Uniqlo, and I thought about a gift card but that seems impersonal. I don't know if I want to pick out clothes for him because I am not sure that I know his taste enough to get him something he'd love. Experience ideas are out since we are apart, but I'm open to solo-experience ideas.
My budget is about $50. We have been dating for 7 months. I have no idea where to start! Any ideas are very appreciated :)
