plan it when he is away at meetings, so he isn't around to hear your coworkers talking about it. Schedule it for midday around lunchtime, and keep it simple. Decorate with streamers and ballons and a banner. Make a coworker pool of funds at about 5 or ten dollars each and present it in a gift card in a card signed by all employees..
If you wnt the party credit, buy your own nice lavish gift and wrap it and give it to your boss when everyone else is away, or just leave it on your boss's desk with a nice card.
