What were your labor & delivery hospital bag special items?

What were the special items or things you took with you to the hospital for a birth in your family?
My partner and I are expecting twins (eek!) this fall and I am in charge of our hospital packing list. We will be working with midwives in a hospital setting, so my partner will be laboring in a "laboring room" and delivering in the ER (required for twins, even with a vaginal delivery), even though we are hoping for a "natural birth."
I have read many online lists and made a master packing list that includes the standard robe, magazines, phones, etc. What I am wondering is if there were special items you brought that made laboring/delivery/post-delivery more comfortable or warm. Also, any tips for the non-pregnant partner staying happy would be welcomed by me (I will be a nervous monkey!).
