Default Today's my last day at work...when should I give the boss a thank-you letter?

I'm graduating college this week, and today is my last day of work at my student employment job. I've already done the standard letter announcing my termination date, but I wrote a thank-you letter to the director of the department too.

I ordinarily wouldn't write something like this, but the director has written a couple of letters of reference for me over the past four years and one of them was for the job I'm moving onto after graduation.

Should I just hand him the letter at the end of the day, or should I give it to him right now, even though I've got the whole workday left?

EDIT: the letter's not just "thanks for the recommendations," it's about how much I've liked working in this department and how the skills I've learned here will be useful at my new job.

I would give it to the director right before you day is over. That way you can have some time to thank him in person.

Heh, considering I've got a full day's worth of work to do today, I don't think that's going to happen.

Are you heading to a better job? Grad school?

I'd give it to them during the day. No need to give it to them as you run out of the building unless it's an F You letter.

Give it early in case he gives himself the afternoon off.
