What to bring to give away?

I'm going to have a little extra room in my suitcase on my trip to male from New York and wondered if there's something the locals might prize and/or want and/or get a charge out of and/or think is cool for me to bring along as gifts and/or tips, etc. Any ideas for small things, so I could bring a few of them? thanks!

we took a couple of football shirts to give away in addition to tip - not a great idea in retrospect - we bought medium size tops (based on previous visit to Maldives) but our waiter was tall and very broad shoulders - and did not care for football! He had kids, 2 very youg daughters ... - nevermind! I hope he could swap it with a colleague...
