When someone found my phone at the mall and gave it back to me a week later, I gave them a card and a nice bottle of wine and she really appreciated the effort, so I think you definitely are on the right track!

What a nice guy!!  Glad to hear it turned out well!  Is there a good restaurant that you could get him a gift certificate to?  Not all guys drink liquor but all of them eat!!

Don’t give him alcohol, you don’t know this person at all. Offer him cash. He either is giving the purse back because he is hoping for a reward, in which case he’ll take the money or he is just a good person, so he’s not expecting anything.

Aww, that’s so sweet!  I wouldn’t give cash, although I don’t really have a good reason.  It’s possible his fb pics might indicate if he drinks, lol. If he does, I think a nice bottle of something is great; if you can’t tell, I would stay away from alcohol as a gift.  A gift certificate to a nice restaurant is always good; or you could do an amazon gift card too – they’re good for everyone, since you can get practically anything on amazon.

This happened to me earlier this winter – I dropped my wallet and I was sure it was gone, but a sweet older couple found it. I brought them a big bouquet when I went to pick it up, and they were so touched!  But I imagine flowers are not the best gift for a 20-something guy, ha.

I was also going to suggest against alcohol; unless his FB page makes it very clear that he enjoys alcohol responsibly, you never know … he could lead a dry lifestyle, he could be a recovering alcoholic, heck, he could be a raging alcoholic!
