Della and her husband, Jim, love each other so much. It is christmas eve and they don't know what to get each other. Well, Della already knows what to get him.
Sadly, Della doesn't have the money to buy what she wants to get for Jim. She is upset until an idea popped up in her head. It was her only choice.
She quickly ran to someone who she knows, buy hair. Della asked for the woman to please buy her hair. The woman gives Della $20 for the hair. Then Della goes to the stores and looks for Jim's gift. It cost 21 dollars, but to her it was worth it.
Della was afraid that Jim wasn't going to like her anymore because of her hair. She was anxious and nervous. When Jim comes homes he is shocked from what she has done to her hair. Della shows him his present which was the silver chain for his golden watch.
Jim tells her that he stills loves her even with her hair short. He then shows her his gift for her. Which was combs that she had wanted for a very very long time. He had sold his watch just to buy the combs.
They put their gifts aside and they will save them for later. Still they love each other so much. And they live happily ever after!
