What would you put in a London survival pack? I'm putting together a shoe-box sized survival pack to give to a newcomer to London.

I've recently transplanted myself to London (the big London, not London, Ontario,) from Toronto. My girlfriend will be joining me here in a few weeks.
I'm loving the city and settling in! To be romantic, silly and practical, I'd like to put together a little London Survival Pack for her, something the size of a shoe-box.
So far, I've got:
- A London A-Z Pocket Size
- An Oyster Card with 50 pounds on it
- A tube map
- Comfy insoles, as a joke, for waking around
Most of my ideas involve getting around the city, since that's the part of settling in that I find most interesting.

By the way, the previous London AskMe threads have been invaluable in helping me settle in around here. Thanks!
