Is a little Christmas gift appropriate for our favorite server?

My husband and I go to our favorite restaurant once or twice a month and ask for the same server. I'll call her Jane. Once in a while (maybe once every 3 months) if Jane is off, she will seat us with another server (always the same one). I'll call him Steve. Jane very generous with us and always comps us our first drink. Often, she will send out a free dessert or pack a little bag of bread or chocolates for us to take home. Steve usually sends us a drink when he is our server. This is a fine dining restaurant and we always tip on the value of food served, not billed, and usually tip at least 30%. My question is this: Is it appropriate to show our appreciation by bringing Jane a bottle of wine or other token gift when we dine next week? What about Steve?
