With the upcoming holiday shopping season and the release of my movie, District Up!, I’m publishing a series of gift guide articles on district shopping. This shopping guide on Western Avenue was written for those looking for special gifts, who don’t want to deal with the malls, and have suggestions for multiple ideas within an area. Western Avenue is the largest business district in Oklahoma City, with a mix of local and national companies. Here’s a sample of gift ideas from shops on Western Avenue.
