We are picking up/choosing our puppy next week sometime and are gathering together the things we will need. This is what we have so far:
Kennel
Food/water dish
leash
coller
toys
bed
harness

What puppy food do you suggest?
Should I buy treats or make my own (basically wheat germ and baby food with a few other things)?
Anything missing on my list?

I suggest you use the same food the breeder was feeding. Just the transition to a new home is tough enough, don't change foods, too. Once you have had the pup for a few months and all is fine you can think about changing foods.

Thanks :) I want to make the puppy feel as comfortable as possible.
The breeder we chose is a small Iowa breeder, who has been breeding Goldens for 9 years, has several of her puppies from previous litters used as Therapy dogs and Service dogs for the blind. She is even going to screen her puppies, and see which one would be the best match for our needs.
