To help with the gift giving of the holiday shopping season, here’s another gift guide in my series on district shopping. This shopping guide on Oklahoma City’s Midtown district 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. Here’s a sample of gift ideas from shops in Midtown.
