With 2020 being such a trying year, we know many of you were not able to make it on vacation. This shouldn't mean your Outer Banks nicks nacks and gifts don't make an appearance in stockings or under the tree! We are going to give you everything you need to get those delivered right to your door for the beach lover in your life.
A Gift For The Whole Family
A Trip to the Outer Banks
What better a gift than a trip to the Outer Banks! Surprise your family this year with a trip. That is the best present anyone could ask for! Wake up Christmas morning to the sight and sound of the beautiful ocean! Check out deals for the week of Christmas, or find a home that works for next summer!
Outer Banks Box
If not an OBX Vacation, perhaps have a little of the Outer Banks delivered straight to your loved ones door.
Outer Banks Box designs custom boxes filled with inspired items from the Outer Banks. Your sun tanned, salty memories will come rushing back as soon as you rip into it. Each shipment will typically contain 4-6 main items ranging from: food, snacks, photo gifts, knick-knacks, product samples, momentos, souvenirs, holiday gifts, and even some custom products! Give the gift that keeps on giving all year long!
Gifts For Any Beach and Dare I Say, Outer Banks Lover
Give these individually, or for a bigger gift, buy a beach bag and stuff them all in for a creative spin on a gift basket that is great for an individual, couple, or family gift.
This one is a no brainer! Customize the bag to the person you're buying for with design or embroidery. We like bags that are large and sturdy enough to hold towels, sunscreen, a book, and a few other knick-nacks. Ones with pockets are nice to keep your phone away from the sand!
It's nice to have a big beach towel to spread out or wrap up in! If you haven't already heard the buzz about Sand Cloud, we defintiely recommend you to check them out. They are a company with a mission to save and protect our oceans and sea life, #SaveTheFishies. All materials are eco-friendly and organic making this a gift that gives back! Start your shopping here.
Kitty Hawk Kites is an iconic business of the Outer Banks, founded in 1974 and still providing the most elaborate kites for vacationers and locals alike. You don't have to be young in age to enjoy flying, just at heart. Offering much more than kites, you'll find something for everyone in the family.
We all love taking an hour and wandering around the local Christmas Mouse, but did you know they deliver? Check out their website and place your order to have your OBX Ornament delivered right to your door!
You don't know how helpful a beach cart is until you have used one! Throw all your gear and possibly a kiddo or two in the cart, and roll it to the beach! You'll be thankful after a long day in the sun that you don't have to carry all that stuff back! There are many different versions of carts, but make sure you get one with treaded or big rubber wheels so you can navigate through the sand!
Beach Float / Boogie Board
Great for kids or teenagers, get an inflatable pool or beach float or even a boogie board! They make all kinds of funny floats these days like donuts and shells! Don't forget to buy an electric air pump to go with, or else you'll be stuck blowing them up manually!
Deluxe Beach Chair
Better than your standard chair, this gift is great for your daily beach go-er! They will get their use out of this comfy chair with pockets and drink holders. The ones with handles or straps are great because they are easy to carry.
Outer Banks Distilling
Truly get the taste of the Outer Banks with our locally made Kill Devil Rum out of Manteo. A relatively new company, but offers a series of flavors to choose from that will transport you to the island. Don't forget to throw in a t-shirt, coozie, or better yet Rum Balls to seal the deal!
Outer Banks Olive
Everyone has a culinarian in the family and this shop is perfect for them!
