I usually use 18 ga. I have a lot of it. You're pulling so few amps that you don't need anything special. If you can get your hands on Mil-spec wire used in aircraft, that would be great because of the low impedance.

the same size as the LED legs works for me. the wire from old wall wart transformers seems to work fine. i once seperated a single strand of wire from a wall wart to put LED's in a hotwheels car and coated them with 2 ton epoxy for insulation. they were virtually invisible.
