Find the Perfect Gift for the Outdoors Lovers in Your Life


Wanderlust – it’s real, especially when you’re a student at University of North Carolina Wilmington and have the beautiful coastal expanses and barrier islands of North Carolina as your backyard. If there’s someone in your life who loves the great outdoors and just can’t seem to stop exploring, get them a gift that enhances their adventures. Here are some of UNCOMMON Wilmington’s favorite outdoorsy gifts.

What’s the Best Camping Accessory?

If it’s the weekend, then your friend is almost certainly at Carolina Beach State Park camping underneath the stars. Sound like the tent-loving pal in your life? If so, head to Great Outdoor Provision Co. for all the best camping accessories. Hook them up with this Yeti Daytrip Lunch Bag to help keep all their snacks cool during their day hikes or give them the gift of comfort with this super lightweight sleeping pad.

Where to Buy Fishing Gear Near UNC Wilmington?

Lots of people go to Freeman Park just to stretch out on the sand and enjoy the rays, but your outdoorsy friend? You can catch them casting lines on the pier from sunup ’til sundown. Fishing fanatics need a quality fishing bag to keep their gear dry. We suggest this 55-liter waterproof duffel. You can find it and a bunch of other outdoor gear in Downtown Wilmington at Outdoor Equipped.

Where to Get Mountain Biking Tools in Wilmington?

If the seven miles of single-track trails at Blue Clay Park is your bud’s solace, then mountain biking tools are a great holiday gift. City Bicycle Company near UNC Wilmington has super knowledgeable staff that can help answer your questions and make sure you get the right accessories. Our suggestion? Keep your two-wheel friend fresh on their all-day ride with this racing hydration pack.
