Southampton - With Fathers Day right around the corner, show dad how much he means by making sure your dad gets the best gifts this year. Whether your dad has an adventurous side or wants to look stylish this summer here are the top gift ideas for those last minute shoppers.

For Dad's With An Adventurous Side:
If one of dad's favorite activities is hitting the gym then FITiST (FITiST.com) is the perfect gift for him. An alternative to the one-gym membership that offers members one-stop booking at the best boutique fitness studios in LA, NYC and the Hamptons with in-demand partners like Barry's Bootcamp, Flywheel and Aerospace. Dad can choose from classes in boxing, MMA, spin, performance, yoga and much more. A four or ten pack card is the perfect gift giving dad all-access to the gym of his choice.

If you are looking for an outdoor activity that the whole family can participate in, book a private sailing trip with Sail Montauk. Enjoy the afternoon on a Catalina 22 while sailing the waters of Montauk during a one of a kind experience. Sail Montauk also offers intro to sailing classes, private lessons, bareboat charters for experienced sailors and a basic keel boat course (www.sailmontauk.com).

Being A Dad Doesn't Have To Stink:

Make sure that dad's man cave smells just as good as he does. Choose from 18 different scents by Cire Trudon to experience the height of luxury. The Ernesto candle combines leather and tobacco to make a chic yet very masculine fragrance. Cire Trudon is available at MONC XIII (40 Madison Street, Sag Harbor).

Odin Fragrances also offers a variety of unisex scents which make the perfect gift. For an opulent blend of warm woods and creamy vanillic spices try 01 Sunda. The recently launched 04 Petrana combines pink pepper and fresh floral notes of orris which creates a powerful balance of masculine and feminine scent. Odin is available at Turpan (55 Main Street, East Hampton, turpanonline.com) and Hirschleifers (2080 Northern Blvd, Manhasset, www.hirshleifers.com).

For dads who like to smell good but candles are a little too much Calvin Klein and Dolce & Gabbana have new scents which make great father's day gifts. Eternity for Men Summer by Calvin Klein is perfect for active dads who like light and fresh colognes. Limited Edition Light Blue "Living Stromboli" by Dolce & Gabbana is the perfect scent for date night or dads who are a little bolder. Eternity for Men Summer by Calvin Klein and Light Blue "Living Stromboli" by Dolce & Gabbana are available at White's Pharmacy (81 Main Street, East Hampton, www.whiteseasthampton.com)

If dad plans on spending Father's Day at the beach then make sure he looks stylish. Stop in Sunbarth (53 Jobs Lane, Southampton) the curated men's swimwear specialty boutique for a variety of styles, fits and colors featuring brands like Orlebar Brown, Sundek and 83990, you can count on finding a suit as unique as your father.

If you decide to stay at the beach for a bonfire make sure dad stays warm while wearing the Franklin Cashmere Basic Full Zip Mock Neck from Christopher Fisher (67 Main St., East Hampton, www.christopherfischer.com). This versatile sweater will not only keep dad stay warm but he will also look stylish all summer long.

If your dad is anything like mine he is constantly loosing his sunglasses and in need of a new pair. Here are three pairs that any dad would like. If your dad is sporty pick up a pair of Chilli Bean's Sunglasses (Chillibeans.com). For fashionable dad's Warby Parker's Beckett sunglasses in Striped Evergreen or Fillmore sunglasses in Revolver Black sunglasses are must haves this summer. Not only will dad look stylish but he will feel charitable. For every pair of Warby Parker sunglasses sold, a pair of optical glasses will be distributed to someone in need. Warby Parker is available at Maison 24 (2424 Main Street, Bridgehampton, www.maison24.com)

These gifts are bound to make dad feel appreciated this Fathers Day.
