For my level five magic item I'm thinking either the Power Jewlry or the Counters of Second Chances.  As for the two consumable's that we are allowed I have no clue at all.  I am certainly open to any constructive suggestions, that would improve the character.
Rituals aren't allowed and so aren't needed. Unless it's just for show.
