Giving a present to your boss is quite tricky. If you go expensive, he might think you are sucking it up to him. If you go cheap, well, you are viewed as cheap. You must go in between what is looked at as expensive, but keep it quality. One of the safest moves you can do when gifting to a superior is to treat him as a co-worker. Give the same (tasteful!) stuff you would give your office mates and you will be fine.
