Taking gifts

Hi all,

First time poster so be gentle :-)

We are going to TG for our first visit on Wednesday 16th April, can't wait after spending the last few weeks reading the forums.

We are planning to take some gifts (football shirts, balloons, kids vitamins & painkillers etc) but we are unsure about who or where is best to give it to. Don't want to play the benevolent tourist part (although would love to see a bunch of the local kids in the Glasgow Rangers shirts), so can anyone suggest the best way to make sure that what we take gets to people who would benefit most from it,without causing any fuss? We are staying at the Senegambia for 7 nights.
