What to buy the serious yet funny boss who doesn't like suck-ups?

I'm looking for an understated but nice ($20-30 or nice homemade items) gift for a boss who's hosting an in-home holiday party (so it will be for husband and wife). Boss is both quite serious and funny and not a fan of anything that appears to be obsequious.

-A bottle of wine (based on what I know about the family)
-Anything specifically for the boss like a paperweight; I am looking for a gift for both hosts and not just my boss
Some ideas I had:
-A poinsettia (but feels weird because they'll probably already have several decorations in there and only costs about $5 where I live)
-A killer baked good I make (only feels weird because I know some people don't like eating things other people made in their home, and I don't know my boss well enough to know whether this would be an issue, though maybe the rest of the family, including their 3 kids, would enjoy it)
Any other ideas?
