gift advice

We are the proud owners of a new 2017 Honda CRV. We love it. We went through a car broker who came highly recommended. The experience was so enjoyable versus the 5 hour torture the dealerships put us through years before. I plan on taking this friend to lunch as a thank you.
I'd like to give the broker a small gift - that's how great he is. I need some ideas for a gift. I haven't been able to find out if he enjoys wine, etc. or side interests.

TIA

or so. Please tell me what a car broker is and how you find one. It's getting to be time to get a car and I HATE shopping/buying one. Never had a good experience.

Our best car ever - we hit 200k and my husband said we had to sell it before major problems. Great visibility and so comfortable - I am now in a Prius and miss my CRV. Enjoy!!!

A good friend recommended the broker to me. She and her family have used him for 15-plus years to buy cars. His business card states "automotive consultant". It's a one man business who locates cars through dealerships, will go to court with clients should problems arise with mechanics, dealers, etc.
I can't tell you how pleasant it was after the pressure of the dealership experience. It took about a week of driving cars, meeting with him, but we were not in a hurry to buy a car. We had time to think and do research on our own. The thing we appreciated was how the broker knew cars and their service records.
