A good human being is returning my lost iPhone and declining the posted reward. What's a good way to thank him?

I lost my phone on a business trip across the country a week ago. I'd pretty much written it off, but today a nice gentleman contacted me at the number I'd posted on the "Lost Phone" message on the screen to return it. I had offered a $100 reward in the message (if you're unfamiliar, iCloud lets you lock your phone and post a message on its screen so that anyone who finds it can contact you), but he declined.
I will be sending him a prepaid FedEx envelope to send the phone back across the country to me. I'd like to send him a token of my appreciation, but opinions are divided as to what I should send:
a) I would go for sending him the $100 in the form of a gift card (Amazon, or some restaurant in his area);
b) my boyfriend suggested $50 so it doesn't look like I'm ignoring his statement declining the reward;
c) if either of these seem a little too over the top, any alternate suggestions would be appreciated. It would have to be cost-effective to ship across the country.
Thanks in advance - the general goodwill I'm now feeling towards all humanity extends to you all!
