If that’s not your speed, perhaps a one of a kind set of coffee mugs, sculpted by hand from one of the Banks local potters would be more to your liking. Regardless of your tastes, the Outer Banks has just the thing to commemorate your vacation or to adorn your beach home.

Of course, there’s no reason to get carried away. A couple of t-shirts, some stickers and a sun tan might be all the souvenirs you’ll need to remember your visit here. After all, The Outer Banks is an awe inspiring gift all on its own. The sights you see, the people you’ll meet, and the food that you eat will stay with you for a life time.
