Storyboard Text

  • Della is depressingly thinking of a gift she could get for her husband. It is the day before Christmas, she has little money, and high standards.
  • Della decides to get together all of her money made by hard work. She counted numerous times and unfortunately there was only $1.87. All in pennies. Not enough to get a good present.
  • After brainstorming all ideas to get money, she decided that selling her hair, her most prized belonging, stretching all the way down to her knees, would get her the most money. She sold it for $20.
  • With the $21. she bought her James a chain for his gold watch. His grandfather's, then father's watch that was worth a great deal of money. She was terrified her husband would no longer love her with short hair, though she was thrilled to give him the gift.
  • Unfortunately the look on his face was not happy, it was concerning. He told her though the gift was beautiful, he couldn't use it. He sold his watch in order to get her a set of combs she had been dreaming of.
  • The couple realized that though the material gift they had bought for each other were useless, the grand gesture of sacrifice was a true gift. They were willing to give up their most cherished possessions to make each other happy for the holiday.
