  • I hope I have enough money to buy him something! If not, I don't know what I'll do
  • Thank you for your donation! Merry Christmas!
  • That is the most beautiful pendant I've ever seen!
  • It was one day before Christmas and Della only had twenty-three dollars and twenty-three cents, to buy Jim a present. How would she buy him a cross pendant he've always wanted? Della drowned in her own tears. Jim had owned one possession; a gold chain, that was passed through his past generations. It represented the love they had for each other.
  • I sold my collection of perfumes , just to get you a present. Don't hate me Jim!
  • Did you put on perfume?
  • Hmm..I don't smell the perfume..
  • Crying wasn't going to do anything. She decided she was going to go to the city and see what she could get. What would she sell? Now, her most valuable treasure is her collection of perfume bottles. It was from past generations , and she just needed one, to complete the whole collection. Once in the city, she found a beauty shop. Without a doubt, she went and sold her collection for two-hundred fifty dollars and went directly, to search for a cross pendant
  • Thank you! I forgot! Here, your present!
  • Honey, let's put away our gifts and enjoy the night.
  • I sold my chain to buy your bottle perfume
  • Out in the city, everything was pretty expensive, but from the inside of Della's eye, she spotted the most beautiful pendant, that she has ever seen.She went directly to it and bought it for two- hundred sixty dollars. She had thirteen dollars left. Time had passed very quickly and, she had to come back and prepare the house.
  • Della couldn't stop worrying about, if Jim was going to like her present. At seven'o clock, the door bell was ringing and ,it was Jim. Della went quickly and opened the door. His nose made a move that he always made, when he arrived home. This time, he didn't smell the perfume scent. Della tried to explain to him, that what she sold was to get him a present.
  • Would he hate her now? After a moment of worrying, Jim hugged Della and reminded her that today was Christmas. He suddenly gets a gify, that is wrapped with a precious paper. Della opens it and sees the last perfume bottle, she needed to complete her collection. She quickly gives him the present. When he sees it, he only tells her to put away their presents, and enjoy the night.
  • As you can see, Della and Jim loved each other so much, that they sacrificed their most precious belongings.Their sacrificial love is like the sacrifices the Magi made for Jesus. This two remarkable characters,wanted to honor someone they loved with worthy gifts, and both had to sacrifice something, to do it.
