Write a lovely, effusive thank you note and worry no more.

Yeah, just do one of these two things. I doubt most of the rest of the team gave lengthy speeches about their particular gift in that big noisy moment with lots of people talking. Don't overthink it. Boss will likely just think you waited for a quiet moment to expand on your feelings (whether in spoken or written form).

TootsNYC:
I think a few in-person comments about how perfect the gift is, and demonstrating a *quieter but still deeply felt and specifically appreciated* response will have the same effect on him eventually.

Just say how clever he was to get the perfect gift, and that you admire his gift-buying skills. And then say something about why you also like to work for him.  He'll realize you appreciate the gift AND his boss skillz.
