  • Inciting Incident/Conflict

  • Della just laid on her bed and cryed. All she had was $1.87 to buy Jim, her husband a Christmas gift. They only made $20 a week, and the $1.87 she had saved up over the year.
  • Crisis/Climax
  • This chain will go perfect with your watch!
  • Della and Jim owned only two valubale things, Jim's watch, which had been passed down to him by his family, and Della's hair. They were proud of their possesions, but Della went to get her hair cut off, that way she can buy Jim the perfect Christmas gift. Mrs. Sofronie would buy her hair for $20.
  • Falling Action
  • I sold my watch to get you this comb.
  • Della looks all over town for the perfect gift, and she found it at the last shop, it was a simple. golden watch chain. It was only $21.00 and it would go perfect with Jim's watch.
  • Resolution
  • Della was doubting herself, what would Jim think of her short hair?  Then, Jim walks in and he makes a strange expression, Della quickly explains that she cut her hair for his gift, and Jim tells her that just because she has short hair doesn't mean he will stop loving her. Della shows him the watch chain and Jim shows her the comb, and it was the one that was sitting in the shop window, she had wanted it for a long time.
  • Della and Jim realize what they did, and they decide to just eat dinner. They sold their most prized possesions just to get new gifts for each other, and now they can't even use their gifts, they are basically useless.
  • Don't worry my hair grows so fast.
  • In the end they deciede that they will always love each other, no matter what. Although their gifts were unwise and they gave away their most prized possesions, they will love each other no matter what.
