I like the half and half idea.  Eating out is nice, but of course there are things they probably want now, but won’t buy for themselves or will want.  Maybe they don’t have room for more stuff, but just want to upgrade an item they already have.  I would try to explain this to your FI.  Maybe try to appeal to it from his perspective. If he likes T.V., try "maybe they’ll want to get a new/larger flatscreen or surround sound."  If he likes clothes, "they may want to buy new clothes for their honeymoon."  It might sound more appealing to him if he can relate.  If that doesn’t work, can you each gift them your chosen gift, the restaraunt card from him and the store card from you?  Then you each get to give what you feel they will most like.

I dunno; I kind of like the restaurant gift certificate idea. I eat out a lot, too, but I usually won’t splurge on a super-nice restaurant unless I have a good reason. It would give them a chance to have a romantic evening together as a couple. To me, memories trump fancy gizmos or clothes.
