Maybe you're the type of person who saves money all year, so you don't feel the financial hardship of holiday present-purchasing. Maybe you truly do love giving more than receiving. And perhaps you are not the kind of person who is buried under the crushing dysfunction of procrastination. Good for you — you're perfect. The rest of us need a little motivation to shop for others now that every big-box store is chock full of rude customers and the same generic merch. Fortunately for us, there's the 24th annual Cookie Spree along the Cherokee Antique Row (on Cherokee Street from South Jefferson Avenue to Lemp Avenue). Not only do shoppers in this historic district have the opportunity to avoid the mall and purchase unique pressies, but from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday (December 1 and 2), they can rejoice in the fact that businesses here offer up cookies and cider to the masses! How sweet! For more information about the charming district, its shops and its nearby eateries, visit You perfect people are welcome to enjoy the spree, too.
