pix00 :  gift cards? Movies, restaurants, clothing stores? These can be pleasant to receive and they get to buy what they want.

Also drinks? Alcohol; wine, beer?

 When I left my last job, they bought me flowers, cake, and threw me a farewell dinner and gave me a farewell card. All so thoughtful.

pix00 :  Is a sushi or ice cream workshop something you think he’d enjoy? I’d be worried that someone who has literally zero hobbies would find something like that enjoyable

I’d probably just play it safe and get a giftcard to a nice restaurant, that you know he enjoys.

 I would do a gift card to a nice resturant.

A decent bottle of wine, something work-related like a tie clip reflecting your industry, and the rest in gift cards.
