Help me find a gift for a generous co-worker.

My friend, a man in his early 60s, has given me a couple of very generous gifts. (Two years ago a $100 gift card for Christmas and just recently an adorable rocking horse for my grandson.) I don't want to accept any more expensive gifts from him (he makes less money than I do). However, I couldn't resist the rocking horse. I want to pay him back somehow. He gives out candy at work so I sometimes bring some in. At work I do favors for him such as helping him out with writing memos since his English skills aren't great.
I have never been to his home but we give each other gifts from our gardens. He has brought in flowers for my birthday a couple of times. He does some gardening, sometimes gambles, is a practicing Catholic. He and his wife are very generous people. What would be a suitable birthday gift for him? Maybe something along the lines of a Good Luck Feng Shui item. I'm willing to spend around $100. On the other hand, I need to find a way to tell him I can't accept anymore big gifts. Help with that would be appreciated also. Thanks!
