I don't have enough money to get Jim a present! I only have $1. 87.
That's it! I'll sell my hair!
Ah, Fred, I just wish I could buy Della the kind of Christmas present she deserves.
I know. And it’s not like she’s expecting anything. It’s just that . . .
Della will understand.

I want that one!
This the beginning of the story where Della sits down and counts her money and realizes that she doesn't have enough for a present for Jim. Then Hattie comes in and tells her that it's okay and to just brush her hair. Then she got an idea...
Here ya go.
Thank you! Here is $20
That one is perfect!
Meanwhile, Jim thinks that Della really deserves the type of present that will make her smile. Della doesn't know it yet, but he is about to do something very nice.
And I sold my comb for your strap...
Thank you for the stap, but I sold my watch for your comb.
After a while, they went to the hair salon. She got her hair chopped off and then sold it so she could buy a new watch for Jim. (I couldn't cut her hair).
Soon Jim went to the store to sell his watch and buy the comb. He thought it was perfect. Now it is time to show Della...
At the end, they both realized what they had done for each other and they are both sad but also both really happy for each other.
