You should clarify that you're not actually looking for gikun or ateji.

comment Problems with particles
It's not so much a special usage of 「~ください」 but rather that 「ください」 is the imperative form of 「くださる」.

comment Problems with particles
「ね」 and 「か」 are sentence terminal particles. You want them to give you the shirt, so the shirt is the object of the sentence.

comment How to know what Okurigana signify?
EDICT claims that it's the counter for pieces of fruit. No clue how it's read though; I'd just use 「いっか」 myself.

comment How to know what Okurigana signify?
These aren't okurigana per se; I suspect that whatever tool you're using to look at them doesn't have or isn't presenting enough context to be able to distinguish from it.
