What should I get my boyfriend for our anniversary?

I am a terribly uninspired present-giver and I really need some ideas! Our anniversary is in two days and I have no idea what to get him. I've tried asking him and the only thing he can come up with is an Olly Moss poster which retail for like $500. My budget is not over $100.
He is really into comics (like Batman, Superman etc), he likes cooking/food, and technological stuff (most of which I can't really afford). He is a UX designer and we are both in Brooklyn. We are moving in a week so some sort of print would be good because he could hang it in our new apartment. He is 26 and has a very active social life (we are always out and about). I was thinking maybe an "experience" type gift but he is already taking me out to dinner for our anniversary so I would want it to be more unique than that.
I asked here before about presents for him and ended up getting him an iPad case, which he uses every day. I've gotten him cookbooks/restaurant guides in the past, which haven't gotten as much use. I've bought him pajamas, which he wears a lot in winter, and I've baked things for him but I am not the best cookie-baker.
Any help is much appreciated!
