After collecting the spirits, you can go back to where you first saw Wisp the Ghost. He will give you an item as a reward.

ACNH - Wisp Rewards - Wisp asks the player what kind of reward they want
Wisp will give you an item for collecting all the spirits as a token of thanks. You can choose between something new, and something expensive.

Should I Choose Something New or Expensive?

ACNH - Wisp Guide - List of Rewards
There isn't an exact pattern to what items Wisp will give you; oftentimes he gives out items randomly!

However, we found that he usually sticks to cheap items, even if you choose “something expensive.” That said, your best option is to choose “something new,” sto try and expand your catalog!
