If they didn't get any kind of rebate or discount upfront from me (former military or repeat clients get perks from me upfront), I usually give them a gift card to Dixieline Lumber or Home Depot, since I know they'll be doing some rehab.

Plenty of options but you have to know the client

Are they experienced investors?
If they are new to it i.e. first investment property perhaps a professional sketch or drawing of the property framed as a reminder

Try to tailor it to their personality but ideally something that stays with them and reminds them of you...
