A good picnic basket. One with full tableware settings, and accessories. (containers, glasses, etc). Depending on the couple, classic wicker style is more upscale...but the newer 'backpack' ones might be more practical for younger urban couples.
Personally, I like the willow ones as those can last generations and have a larger storage area for service for four.

A sousvide supreme (if you're into trying sousvide).

The kitchen aid mixer is also a classic gift item. As is a vita-mix mixer.

Items 1-3 on Sexy's list can't be beat. You can pretty much make anything with those.

The most popular item that couples register for at our store, is without question, a KitchenAid stand mixer (lately, the Pistachio color!)

I really like SKK's answer too - it's hard to know what a couple has/wants/will get or where theyll be living!
