Storyboard Text

  • Della cried on the couch. It was as if the whole world hated her. She thought about her wonderful husband and of Christmas which was coming up soon. Too soon.
  • She didn't have enough money to buy her Jim a Christmas present. She had worked so hard to earn money but most of it had to go to the monthly rent. She only had a little over a dollar to purchase a gift.
  • Della's hair was her prize possession, however she'd sell it in a heart beat if it meant that she could get something for James. So she approached the hair dresser and sold her hair for a whole $20.
  • She sold her hair and bought the chain. Christmas came and Jim gave her her gift, a set of beautiful hair combs. Alas they couldn't be used as she had just cut off all of her hair.
  • The irony was bitter and they set it aside as Jim opened his gift. The sterling watch chain gleamed against his hand and he looked sad. He had sold his watch to buy the combs.
  • They had both stupidly sold their most prized possessions to buy each other gifts that they couldn't use. Della assured him that her hair would grow fast and that she could use the hair combs then. The watch remained sold though and there was nothing they could do about it.
