More than likely, you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping yet. And more than likely, you’re looking for some great gifts but not wanting to risk life and limb to do it. If you’d rather avoid the hustle and bustle of Tulsa’s busiest shopping areas, head south on Memorial to all of the new growth around 103rd Street. The Palazzo and Regal Point Shopping Center offer plenty of great shops, restaurants and entertainment.

When finished shopping for cute shoes, bags and accessories at Lynette’s, head over to Michael V’s ( for a relaxing lunch, complete with the famous coconut cream pie, Snicker Brownie Pie or another heavenly dessert. In order to have room for some of that decadence, try a fabulous salad like the Thai Peanut with plenty of noodles, chicken, peanuts and a slightly spicy dressing. The daily quiche is a delicious choice for lunch, as well.

After getting your nails done at Kagan Nails Spa, head over to Barbee Cookies (, right next door to Michael V’s, for a little afternoon treat. The Cinnamon Roll Cookie, Double Chocolate Cookie or Barbee’s original cookie: white chocolate, milk chocolate and pecan. Be sure to pick up some cookies as gifts and for Santa, too.

With all of this indulgent goodness, you might want to stop into Body Master’s Fitness for a quick workout before dinner.

Later in the afternoon, head across the street to Regal Plaza and check out Tea and Magnolias for a potpourri of beautiful gifts.

If you love pizza, you’re in luck. You can either end the day with mouth-watering Chicago style pizza at Savastano’s ( or Hideaway Pizza (, an Oklahoma original.
