Yeah.. gift cards are great... I like Amazon and Best Buy personally, but am not very picky.. (If I can't use it, I'm sure my wife will..)

Other than that, one of the newer game systems, or an av receiver

A BFADS Tee shirt without a silly shopping cart on it. BTW, when is the voting for this year's shirt scheduled?
Other than a shirt, a tablet or gift card is always nice, especially if it arrives in time to shop on Black Friday with it!

Gift cards are always good - if you offer an Amazon gift card, it should really be an Amazon gift card. I won a gift card last year and asked for Amazon when given a choice, but got a generic AmEx gift card. Don't get me wrong, I still appreciate the gift card, but I couldn't use it on Amazon if what I wanted to buy was over the value. Generic gift cards like AmEx are treated like credit cards and you can't really split orders between 2 credit cards on Amazon (or at least I couldn't find a way to do so).

Other ideas:
* digital camera
* blu-ray player
* movie bundle
* game bundle
* pet goodies bundle (toys, treats, accessories, etc)
* Fitbit
* BFAds.Net sweatshirt - I remember seeing people requesting this as an alternative to the t-shirts, but I think it was too expensive or something. What about printing just a few of them for giveaways (not an option to buy)

I'd like a gift card and a golden BF Ads tshirt to wear on black friday. Free advertisement for the website and clothing to keep me warm. It's a win-win for everyone.

We haven't set a voting date yet, but we usually start the first or second week in October. :D

I already posted in this thread, but can I second the idea of BFAds sweatshirts? Especially up here in the northeast we tend to have chilly Black Fridays, the golden t-shirt I won last year (received after BF, but I still wore it) was nice but I often covered it up with a jacket. I realize custom hooded sweatshirts cost more than t-shirts but surely they're cheaper than some of the electronic suggestions here ...

I'm thinking things that I could use as a gift:

Nice headphones and an iTunes gift card
Family Fun Night games and a pizza gift card

Battlefront is going to be a hot item so how about

Battlefront and a PSN card
Battlefront and a XBox Live card

I have been around for a decade, just not a member, sometimes I'm a little shy and takes me some time to be a joiner. :D

Gift cards are always great, It would be nice if this year you brought back the boards only contests too!

Maybe also a few things off the HOT TOY lists, since alot of parents always seem to be searching for those!
