Finding dad the right gift for Father's Day can be a daunting task. The big day is less than a week away, so if you are still looking for something to pick up, here are our five favorite ideas.

If he's active and likes the water, splurge a little for the guy who did such a great job of raising you and get him a stand up paddleboard. It will keep him healthy and give him something fun to do, but don't kid yourself, this is as much a "me gift" as it is a father's day gift. Try Flying Point Surf and Sport ($10.12 to $870.75, 79 Main Street, Southampton, 631-287-0075, www.flyingpointsurf.com) for a stand up paddleboard and all SUP accessories.

Maybe you aren't the best at expressing your feelings towards your stylish father, the man whom you maybe have never even seen shed a tear. If you want to tell him your favorite quality about him without explicitly doing so, get him a G.Frost Morse Bracelet available at Lulu Frost ($72.00 on sale for $57.00, www.lulufrost.com). Hidden in the design of five pieces are the words loyal, love, luck, unite, or trust.

For the father who loves to pamper himself using the best skincare products, pick him up a few from J. Paul ($18 to $58, www.jpaulskincare.com). Our favorites are the pre-shave scrub with jojoba oil and the body wash. Both have incredible scents that will keep him smelling fresh and keep his skin looking amazing all day and night long.

Is he always traveling for business? Or does he just like to have beautiful pieces for when does travel? If you answered yes to any of those, buy him this Tommy Hilfiger Stripe Dopp Kit ($39, www.tommy.com), and his toothbrush and razor will thank you.

For the dad who is trendy and cool and implements style into every outfit he wears, gift him these incredible David Yurman Waves Skull Cuff Links with Black Diamonds and Rubies ($4,200, www.davidyurman.com). His french cuffs will never look better, and he'll be the talk of the office, in a good way.

Just this once, indulge in his idea of being king of the house, and get him his own outdoor throne. You'll probably regret boosting his ego, but your patio definitely won't. Head over to Hildreth's ($2,370, 51 to 55 Main Street, Southampton, 631-329-8800, www.hildreths.com) to pick him up a gorgeous outdoor seat of your choice. We're partial to the Lloyd Flanders Napa Chaise Lounge for its modern color and shape but its traditional wicker Hamptons look. If you're not opposed to mocking him, wrap him up a little crown, it just might make his day. Maybe the best idea is to get two of them, so the two of you can sit together on the pool patio, under the sun on a Saturday afternoon with a glass of wine and some cheese and crackers. In case you were curious, I am, in fact, describing heaven.
