Default Overall list when getting your first hedgie?

Hi! I am excited to get my first hedgie for my birthday! I have been researching and researching, but decided to ask you all what are the supplies you use!

What is a general list of everything needed for a hedgie?

Here is what is on my list:
C and c cage
Igloo
fleece liners and scraps for under igloo
food and water bowl
food (i will be purchasing high quality cat food)
wheel (I will be purchasing the Carolina Storm Bucket Wheel that comes with a litter tray)
treats (mealworms)
room heater(which i already have)

And things not necessary but wanted:
Pop up play pen

Does anyone have anything to add to this list?

CHE with a 10" deep dome lamp, a digital theremometer with sensor. A thermostat to plug in the CHE. A light and timer so s/he can get 12-14 hours a day of daylight. Cuddle sacks, unscented baby wipes, Aveeno unscented oatmeal baby wash. Nail clippers, tooth brush and a hard-sided travel cage that can be hooked into the car using a seatbelt.

Most people just stuff a plastic or cardboard box with fleece scraps for a dig box. I also had a rock garden for Lily - a metal baking pan, 1" high, filled with small aquarium stones (not the gravel, but small stones about the size of a quarter or so). I had a couple of silk aquarium plants in it as well and would hide treats (thawed frozen crickets mostly, but also a couple different cat treats and mealworm pupae) in the plants and on the stones around the plants. Lily loved it!
