What is an appropriate gift or recognition for a great manager?

I have a great boss who manages about a dozen people. He is always supporting us, advocating for us, giving out recognitions and rewarding us for accomplishments. Also very technically skilled.
I'm leaving to go on a temporary assignment, and I would like to find some way to recognize him. But I don't want to come across as a kiss-ass. He does determine my performance evaluation and that obviously affects my pay, so I don't want to do anything that will make it look the wrong way.
Is it appropriate to give a gift? What about a card? Usually in my workplace it's acceptable to send a note to someone's supervisor if they perform well, but in this case, his supervisor is also ultimately mine. What if I involve a few other people, or do I need to try to get EVERYONE involved? Or is my performance for the group supposed to be its own reward?
