I suggest finding what the developer likes, like a hobby etc, perhaps asking 
directly or from web pages or friends.

Good default gifts for a geek are books, software and gadgets like the ones 
in http://www.thinkgeek.com

I would definitively not send alcohol since (s)he may not enjoy it and also 
there are special regulations in different countries regarding alcohol (for 
example in a 'religious fundamentalist' place like some US states, it's illegal 
to ship in even wine).

An idea is to avoid shipping, customs etc altogether and find something that can 
be sent online, like an eBook, software, game or other online service 
subscription, Amazon gift certificate etc. Besides this you can also send a 
postcard with some local/Canadian theme.
