I need some help, Craftsterland!

I put together this gift basket for a friend who is getting married. Aside from the basket itself, I made it all-



There are some bars of soap, tub tea, bath melts, two puffs, and two pair of knit socks. I'm going to add a set of felted wool dryer balls and two lip balms. Friend and Hubby-to-be have been living together for two years now, so they've pretty much set up their home and don't need a lot in terms of that kind of stuff. They are very eco-friendly, crunchy folks. I feel like I need to add more stuff, but I don't know what to add!

What can I add to this basket to make it super duper awesomesauce? ANY AND ALL suggestions are APPRECIATED!  Grin Grin Grin

That is such an awesome idea!  Fabulous!

And hmmm - maybe dryer sachets?  Some sort of lotion or massage oil?  Knit/crocheted washcloths?

A bottle of wine is almost always a good idea.  Cheesy

I like to create a theme for my gift baskets.  For example you have the makings of a nice romantic bath date night.  I would try to put together the makings needed for a romantic bath for two.

I would include a bottle of wine like cankle suggested.  If they're not wine drinkers, how about a nice craft beer or some loose leaf tea?
massage oil like kaz814 suggested.
scented candles to place around the room for ambiance
eye masks (for relaxing or some 9 1/2 weeks action if they're feeling racey)
chocolate truffles
maybe a romantic movie
a book on romantic massage

Best wishes to your friends on their upcoming wedding.

The items you've made look lovely!
