Contest: How would you like to be (a tiny bit) spoiled?

It started when I was thinking about biodegradable packaging for my yarny snack packs.....

It brought me to some clear bags that are intended for packing looseleaf tea.

Tea? Hmmmm.....tea and yarn go so well together..... there would be room in these bags for a few extra treats.....

maybe chocolate? stitch markers?

I could put together an optional extra-indulgent snack pack for spoiling one's self or someone else.....

So what do you think? What should go in a Yarn Lover's Spoil Me Pack?
Do you have sources for such items? Keep in mind that I want to keep the cost low for my customers but the indulgence high.
Tell me your thoughts.... If I end up using an idea (one I haven't mentioned myself, of course!) or source you mention, you win a Spoil Pack for yourself. If more than one person mentions the same idea or source, the winner will be chosen from among the contenders by random number generator.

There will be at least one winner, and there may be several. So jump in!

The contest runs 'til June 10th.
