    No, it is business not personal. A gift is too much, it could come across as bribing. You can send a thank you email. I’m sure that would be more than enough

    Obviously you wouldn’t mean it this way but some employers, if they heard you had given a gift to your referee, may misconstrue it as you having bribed them to give a good reference.
