Up for is the correct answer.

Jeff made up for his neglect by taking Jane out for dinner next day.

Make up for is an idiom that is used to mean "to compensate for someone or something someone did." For example:

We all had to do extra work to make up for Harry, who was very tired from being out late the night before. We will certainly make up for what we failed to do.

Made is the past form of make hence, made up for is the correct answer.
