Storyboard Text

  • EXPOSITION
  • CONFLICT
  • RISING ACTION
  • WIGS
  • We are introduced to Jim and Della who do not have a lot of money . Della doesn't have enough money to buy him a gift.
  • CLIMAX
  • She bargained with others for months, but only has $1.87, which is not enough to buy Jim a Christmas present.
  • FALLING ACTION
  • She decides to sell her most prized possession in order to get her husband a nice gift. She goes to Madame Sofronie and gets twenty dollars in return for her hair. She then spends most of the day searching around the city until she finds a chain that she thinks Jim can hang his watch on. When Della returns to her apartment she begins to make Christmas Eve dinner. She starts fixing her hair (she is scared that Jim will no longer think she is pretty anymore because she cut her hair).
  • RESOLUTION
  • Jim sees Della and gives her gift first, which are the combs that she had wanted very much. When she gave Jim his gift he fell to the couch and a dumb smile spread across his face. It turned out that Jim had sold his pocket watch so that he could buy the combs.
  • Della and Jim realized that both of their gifts were now useless because they foolishly sacrificed their most prized possessions. Jim could not use his new chain because he sold his watch and Della could not use her new combs because she sold her hair.
  • Even though Della and Jim just realized their heartbreaking errors they remained in love. These two are now all the wiser from this experience and will have learned a very important but devastating lesson. The lesson that they learned was that love should not be measured by the quality of gift you can buy for one another. They are now as wise as the Magi in the art of gift giving.
