Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  • Conflict
  • Rising Action
  • Della is a woman who's lover is Jim. They aren't the fanciest of most people, but they live in a cheap, $8 flat.
  • Climax
  • However, with only $1.87, Della cannot buy a nice gift for Jim. It is Christmas time and all Della can do is feel sorry for herself.
  • Falling Action
  • As Della sprouts an idea, though she does not like it, she heads to Madam Sofronie's to cut her hair and sell it. After this, she now has $20.
  • Resolution
  • Both of them have gifts, though both have sacrificed their most prized possessions in exchange. Della has cut her hair to buy a chain but Jim sold his watch for combs.
  • The two realize that they must put aside their gifts until they can use them, as both of them know that Della's hair will grow back and that Jim can save money for a new watch.
  • In the end, Della and Jim realize that the greatest gift that they can give is their love for each other and not any sort of material.
