Need gift idea for independent 17 year old boy

A 12th grader did some really helpful things for me recently. The type of things you might pay someone for but he did it as a chessed and monetary payment would be too awkward. In other jobs he earns his own money and buys himself whatever he wants. I don't know of anything in particular that he would like and wouldn't buy for himself. But I really want to get him something other than words of thanks in appreciation of the pretty large favor he did for me.

Ideas please!
Budget is flexible because this means a lot to me. Depending how great the idea is I could go anywhere between $50-200 I think.

Hm a watch could be a good idea. Anyone know what's trending for boys this age?

He's not bookish and a gift card feels impersonal especially since he's not short on actual money. If he wanted something from iTunes he'd just buy it.

Anyone know what kind of watch might be "in"? Should I start a new thread to ask that?

Maybe something related to the favor he did for you
Example: if he built your sukkah- new tool(s), tool box
If he mowed your lawn: lawnmower or gas card
If he helped shlep boxes: comfy bean bag chair or other chair to relax in

My 20 year old ds has a Skagen watch. It has really nice style and it was slightly over $100. Think we bought it on Amazon. Here are some options: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=ska.....ss_tl
