Tell me your favorite products to have around the house for massaging your partner. Oils, candles, sheets, music, etc.

I’m putting together a massage kit for my wife, along with a coupon book for a weekly massage given to her by her loving husband. We already have a table (bought it about five years ago and only recently started using it regularly) but our oil is running low and I’d like to restock.
So I’m looking for the following:
Oils. I think we use some sort of lavender oil now. We like it a lot but we’re open to new things. Nothing nut-based, please. I just don’t like the smell. Oils with a romantic scent (whatever the hell that means. Bacon, maybe?) are especially welcome.
Music. Non-cheesy jazz, classical, folky, whatever. So far the stuff that has worked has been Norah Jones’ Come Away With Me (don’t judge me) and Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue. Please, no new age-y Yanni Windham Hell stuff. It should be something you could also put on on a Sunday afternoon or during dinner without wanting to stab somebody with a spork.
Other stuff. A good set of sheets for the table, your favorite candles, creams, towels, table warmers, oil warmers, books, whatever else. I'm pretty new at this so I'm not even sure what there is.
No electric massaging devices, thanks.
I’d prefer specific product recommendations rather than “check out Massage-o-rama.com or Good Vibrations for this sort of thing.”
