The Latest for the Greatest Dad @ Best Buy
My dad past away last year, so for Father's Day this year, I get to give really strong hints on what I'd like. Well, even if he was still around, I'd probably be doing that. I consider myself a bit of a Gizmo Guru so I'll probably focus on what's new in the tech world. Best Buy has plenty to choose from here, with many options depending upon your price point.
Nest Learning Thermostat
I can see many mom's buying this for dad. It is the new Nest learning thermostat. The dads can think it is really cool for them, but the moms will learn to control this. No need to walk to the thermostat to set it, just go online to control it. It is pricey at $250, but watch for rebates from your local utility company to help reduce the price. Right now, for where I live, there is a $100 rebate available.

Amazon Fire TV
For the more budget conscious, there is Amazon Fire TV. With this set top box, you can watch more than 200,000 TV episodes, listen to millions of songs, or just play one of the hundred or so games. It goes for just $99. Some people are considering dropping cable with boxes like these, as cuts the budget by the monthly cable bill.

If that still is running high budget-wise, consider just a $50 (or less) iTunes gift card. They're always sure to please, assuming dad is looking for more tunes to listen to.
