Gifts for the Ex-Boss

Ok, here is a weird one: I was promoted earlier this year over my old boss. I'm not his boss now but I am at a higher level. In years past we have always exchanged gifts, a tradition he started because he's a good guy who believes in giving gifts to his subordinates.

Gifts have always been pretty easy -- a business book, maybe a calendar or such.

I want this year's gift to be something special. A kind of thank you. But I don't want him to view it as anything pretentious. He's a little sensitive about this move, though neither one of us had anything to do with it nor really saw it coming.

Any ideas?
