I think your idea of having her contribute to Out of Town bags is a great idea! Maybe gently explain that all of your wedding research (make light of how much you do) shows that people don’t take favors unless they are edible but her offer is so kind you can’t turn it down and would like her help in creating Out of Town bags.

I think that you should just let them know that your FIL’s want to contribute a favor also. I don’t think you need to mention that they don’t think it is enough. Just a nice gesture. I personally don’t see it as a problem, if they both want to contribute to you special day.
