   Be there for them.  Sometimes the sharpest title closers or attorneys will miss something.   It is imperative that you review every document, especially the CD.   More than once I have quietly passed a document to the title closer and tactfully asked a question about something that I knew needed correction.

Being there is the best things you can do for them.  As Fred Griffin said, things are missed or something is inaccurate that needs to be changed.

I like to give a closing gift that has shelf life. A bottle of wine is soon gone. I want to have something that reminds them of me.

I'll give them the key.  :)

If I get more attached with the client, I may get them something personal or make something yummy for them.

Back in the day (90s) it was common in the city of Moorpark for new home owners to get a coupon book from the city (I think) with coupons for pizza and local places.  Maybe something like that?  My mom never wanted to cook on moving day!  Dinner out or a pie in.
