I moved to the states last year, from Canada. I married an American, we got a lawyer and started working on the applications. Well, yesterday I got my final acceptance, and am now a permanent resident. However, we couldn't have done all of this if it weren't for his boss. She is super generous and footed the bill. We're talking thousands upon thousands of dollars.
There won't be any way to actually repay her, ever, but I really want to give her more than a card and flowers. I don't know her at all, and my husband is a little dense when it comes to these things. She's rich, so what do you give someone that has everything- and I mean everythingHuh

What about a "something of the month" gift.  This way it's ongoing.

I'm not sure what your husband's job entails or anything, but if it's a high stress job for his boss, perhaps some things to help her relax? Not directly related to gratitude, but the opportunity to even just get a manicure or massage may go a long way, since she's taken such good care of you, she ought to treat herself as well. Gift certificates for a manicure and some lavender bath salts even in a nice package (with a thank you note but thats a given) would mean a lot to me anyways.

Or, if you know if she's got a green thumb at all, a somewhat rare to the region but simple plant (example: gardenias where I live- not too high maintenance, but definitely not native) and something saying that her kindness is rare, and your thanks grow continually?

How about just a note, expressing your extreme gratitude and appreciation? She has helped you change your life and I think anyone who goes out of their way to help others appreciates your appreciation.  Smiley
