By giving them to Dany he also symbolically cements her status as Targaryen Princess. The eggs are valuable in themselves and delivered in a way that tends to confirm the value and authenticity of Dany. Ilyrio is buying the Dothraki horde, though not in quite the crude sense that Viserys understands. Why not give Young Griff the dragon eggs? Because he is buying an army, and Young Griff does not have an army. Khal Drogo does. Because he exchanged them directly for the army and the invasion. Drogo never looks twice at the dragon eggs. I read AGoT's for the first time in ages, just a few months ago and there isn't even one scene of Drogo saying "man those dragon eggs are nice". Dany was the gift to Drogo and Dany alone. The 3 eggs were a gift to Dany and for what reason, I still don't know. Preston has a whole conspiracy theory, about how Illyrio was setting up the eggs to hatch all along. I don't fully believe it, but it makes more sense than a lot of the stuff I heard the fandom come up with, in regards to why he gave them to Dany, if she was only pawn to be thrown away for Faegon.
