Well if they both like to cook, what about a nice balsamic vinaigrette and/or a cruet?

OO, OO, another idea then... I gave my godparents (for christmas, but still a neat idea) A bottle of flavored olive oil and a shaker of italian seasoning mixes and a set of 4 little dishes for bread dipping. They loved it. It's a fun thing to nibble on while making dinner (unless they prefer to nibble on each other, per your hubby's research... )
I have also given as wedding gift a nice bottle of champagne a dinner gift certificate so they perhaps have an option to use for a "first anniversary" celebration.
Or how's about some bucks toward golfing time or lessons to brush up their skills. Or a couples spa day? or or or... a cooking class?
gads, why don't we get this kind of stuff?

oo a cooking class is a good idea!
I like the spa idea too.. or you could make up a basket with some fluffy towels, a "romantic" movie (whatever their tastes--9 1/2 weeks might work), a few candles, massage lotion, vino, some chocolate covered strawberries.... they can do their own spa thing.

OOh, I would like that gift! My hubby was thinking about a couple of massages.

I heartily recommend a gift certificate to Home Depot/Lowes/Ace Hardware, or their local grocery store!
