My Dad would like a Flat Screen TV for Father's Day.

My dad and my kids dad(hubby) are always happy with whatever they get but hubby is a tool guy (at work and home) so it must have a plug or rechargeable battery for him to get excited!

i do love little gizmos, just got a fancy new remote control for the tv, dvd et al

My man would love a Blue-ray disc player. That or Madden 09 for the Wii (you can't take the boy out of the man).

The blue ray player sounds great, but so do all the prizes.

As a dad I'd really like to get a Blue Ray player, been wanting one of those for awhile

My dad is always looking for new tools!

My husband is asking for a PS3 game. He was so impatient that he went out today and bought it. He's also asking for some new DVD release. Thanks for the giveaway.

My hubby would want some tools to make landscape maintenance easier. But I don't really have any idea about specific things since that's HIS domain. He'd also like the BluRay you're giving away since we don't have one!! Thanks.
