How do you show your boss that you are appreciative of his generosity?

My boss recently approached me with the offer of a substantial raise - which I promptly accepted. This offer was totally unsolicited. As a matter of fact, I requested and received what I considered to be an above average raise earlier in the year. I've been with the business through some tumultuous times when compensation was sluggish and I think this is his way of saying thanks for sticking it out with the firm.
Should I give him a gift to express appreciation for his generosity? If so, what type of gift would be appropriate?
If it helps, I would define my relationship with my boss as friendly and mutually respectful. He is also the owner of the firm.
