Gift for a native Parisian

A 30 year old friend, a native Parisian has helped us with planning our trip any suggestions for something we could bring back for him ?

A Parisian that age would generally appreciate a good bottle of champagne or cognac. I would go with the cognac because some people would feel obliged to open the champagne immediately (even if it was not chilled - yuck!).

You could always invite them for lunch/dinner?

Agreed, would take him out for a meal to a place of his choice, lunch or dinner, depending on your budget. If really on a tight budget, drinks.

Oops! Forget to mention he's here in the USA we'll be visiting Paris so can't take him for a meal.

Could you just ask him what he might like you to bring back? When I went to London, a British friend looked after my cat. When I told her I 'd like to bring her back something she'd been missing, she came up with a short list of things that were easy for me to find and that she was happy to have again.
