Preconception gift basket ideas?

My darling friend who is amazing with my four kids is finally ready to have her own and SO excited! It's her birthday this week and I want to give her a basket of goodies Nothing too risqué though
I've already given her a copy of Taking Charge of Your Fertility and a basal body thermometer since she is worried about not being able to conceive.
What other goodies would you add? She has been perusing babies r us and buy buy baby constantly but not buying yet of course. Plus I am offering her all my baby stuff- she is like a sister to me :good vibes:
What would you add to a gift basket?
So far:
Prenatal vitamins
Baby doppler (she's had a miscarriage before)
Pregnancy tests
Candles

Thanks for your ideas!

She can feel when she ovulates so I wasn't going to put those in. Great suggestion though!

I already gave her the Mayo pregnancy book, prenatal prescription, and the gift of health. Any other good books?

A water balloon slingshot so they can dispose of any condoms that are laying around.

Great Expectations is a good book. Not as scary as What to Expect.

A Thinking Woman's Guide to a Better Birth - great book. If you are including other pregnancy books.

I think including Pre-Seed might be a bit risque. But it is a TTC safe lube.

Honestly... The fetal Doppler that you are giving is one of the best gifts ever. I bought one. It honestly helped me stay sane during my pregnancy!

What brand do you use? I may just order a medical grade one, since I am going to be a midwife. I can save it for later!
