I'm from 'Down Under' so I am not really sure what the bottles you are using are like, but I love all your ideas and will find something I can use to make up some of your sets.
Here's a few more suggestions:
1. a supporter's favourite team set- (football, hockey, basketball, etc) -use jelly beans in team's colours (one colour per bottle), make team stickers/stamps for another bottle- print faces and run through xyron, place small souvenirs- keyring, pens, etc, in team colours attach stickers 'Go Team' or #1 fan. Make team labels for bottles.
2. a message in a bottle set for grandparents, - each family member has own bottle to decorate and fill, writes a note, poem, story or picture; adds a favourite photo; a treat-favourite lolly/candy/lipstick,etc; a handmade : bookmark/fridgemagnet on peg/ pencil with topper, List of personal milestones and achievements for the year. Label each bottle 'Loving wishes from.... '
3. a garden kit- a selection of home dried seeds (herbs, veges, flowers, trees) and instructions for growing each, little laminated tags to identify seedlings, pretty pebbles if it is for an indoor plant.
