Anything related to alcohol would be off-limits- so no corkscrews, wine glasses, decanters, etc.
Otherwise (assuming they're Westerners) the same boring stuff you'd buy for a Judeo-Christian/non-denominational wedding is fine* (blenders, flatware, housewares, etc.)
ETA: I suppose it would depend a bit on what kind of Islam they practice. If the bride wears a hijab and doesn't speak in public, all bets are off.
