I always lean towards experience type gifts over physical gifts. Since your civil wedding is on his birthday what about a romantic surprise birthday/ceremony celebration after the wedding? 

Since he loves food you can either buy from a restaurant or make his favorite meal and pack it in a picnic. Add some wine and a blanket and find a nice place in a park or by a lake. 

Or an at home spa surprise. I did this for my husband one year and he loved it! I lit candles, had spa like music playing, and made several different rubs and mixes I had in the kitchen to make a body scrub, face mask, hand moisturizer, and topped it off with a 30 minute back massage. Guys like to be pampered too and he really enjoyed it. 🙂  

Other ideas are taking him for a night on the town. To save money you can have dinner at home with homemade pizza and wine and go out to a cheap comedy show. Or since he likes games take him to the arcade and act like kids again. 

As long as the event is a surprise I think he will love it because you put time and effort into creating an experience he would enjoy.
