Default Question about the LOR author

hello , i have a question regarding my LOR authors what is next ? I mean what is ethically acceptable to do as a thank you , a thank you card , or a thank you email or a simple professional gift like a pen or that kind of gifts? what do you think guys ! and when is the appropriate timing for such gesture? I need your input please.
I can see how much time consuming and annoying to write a LOR for someone and adding to that the difficulty of ERAS this year in restricting doing that only through LOR portal (doing registration , pdf files blab blab blab etc...)
your opinoin really appreciated.
