Tom and Huck brings these items to Potter as sort of offerings. Both boys’ feel guilty about not telling the truth. The gifts help to appease their guilt. Potter had also been kind to them in the past, doing little things like mending their kites. The boy's most probably stole the tobacco and matches for they had no money.
