i don’t know how to fix themed response it won’t let me delete my writing
The theme of the short story, The Gift of the Magi is love. In the beginning of the story the reader is introduced to Della and Jim, a poo couple who love each other immensely. In hopes to get Jim the perfect gift for Christmas she sells her beautiful hair in order to buy him a platinum chain for his heirloom watch. When they exchange gifts, Della comes to find out the Jim sold his watch in order to buy her gorgeous hair combs. Even though she cut off all her hair Jim still loves her. In today’s society love is not taken as serious, and many people would not sacrifice the most valuable possessions to make another person happy. In my opinion, love is a powerful thing and can make people sacrifice everything just to express someone how much they mean to them.
