If you are a “must shop on holiday” kind of traveler, the Outer Banks area and Kill Devil Hills in particular will happily oblige you.

There are, of course, a number of souvenir and gift shops to choose from here. At Beach Bargains, located on the Croatan Highway, you can pick up everything you need for the beach as well as T shirts and other souvenir items. Casual Creations and Craftworks can provide you with handmade and interesting creations to bring home from your Outer Banks trip.

Scrapbookers enjoy shopping almost as much as scrapbooking, and Beach Memories promises to fulfill the need for retail therapy. This is the largest scrapbooking store on the Outer Banks. This store is located in Nags Head just down the road from Kill Devil Hills.

Looking for a bargain? Take a quick trip down the highway to Nags Head and visit the Tanger Outlet Mall, which is located on US 158 and features all manner of outlet and factory stores.

Take a little Saturday side trip to the town of Manteo if you’re visiting the Outer Banks between June and September. Here, you can purchase a fresh pie, some herbs, or beautiful flowers. There’s also an abundance of produce available as well!
