They are capacitors. Used to filter out any noise that may be present on the power supply rail (I.E. they are connected between GND and VCC next to each IC)

I found that I didn't need them (I guess I was just a bit lazy) but it is always good practice to add those caps to every IC in your circuit.

They don't have to be any specific value.

0.1uF would work a treat.
