Thanksgiving is here, Christmas is right around the corner, and you have only crossed one person off your holiday shopping list - yourself.
Small Business Saturday is your ticket to a stress-free and (*gasp*) enjoyable shopping experience - and we’re here to give you a head-start with our Top 6 Shop Stops along with a list of Norman businesses participating in Small Business Saturday initiatives. (Check out the Norman Chamber of Commerce's and City of Norman's Small Business Saturday activities here.)

Looking for something a little more personalized? From tumblers, to cutting boards, to journals and wallets, Norman Stamp & Seal is the perfect shop for custom brands and engravings. Oh, and those super popular Yetis.

Find yourself hitting up all the same shops each Small Business Saturday? Change it up this year with a visit to The Clothing Bar - The Main District’s newest clothing retailer! The Clothing Bar features clothing and accessories for women of all ages, from knit sweaters, to jeans and skirts, to jewellery and fringe booties, this is one shop you definitely will not want to miss this Saturday.
If you are searching for that one special gift for the chef in your life, Teaoli in Brookhaven Village is your one-stop-shop! As the name suggests, this specialty culinary store offers a vast array of teas and olive oils. The store also includes a large supply of balsamic vinegars, loose-leaf teas and kitchen gadgets. At Teaoli, you can put a little dent in your holiday shopping while you prepare for your own holiday feast as well.
