Storyboard Text

  • Yay! I finally bought him his present
  • The story tells of a young married couple. Jim, and Della Dillingham. They have very little money and lives in a small apartment. On Christmas Eve they went looking for presents to buy for each other even though they are very poor
  • It's Christmas Eve, and Della finds herself running out of time to buy Jim a Christmas present. But all Della has is $1.87.She goes searching for the perfect gift on the cold December day, looking in shop windows for something she can afford.
  • She decides to buy Jim a chain for his pocket watch, but she doesn't have enough money. So she decided to cut her beautiful long hair and sell it to get the money. She sold her hair for $20.00, just enough to buy the gold chain she saw in a shop window for $21.87.
  • When Jim comes home from work, Della admitted that she sold her hair to buy his present. However, Jim hands Della her gift. As she opened it she found a pair of decorative hair combs that she'd always wanted but are now useless since she's cut off her hair.
  • Hiding her tears, she jumps up and holds out her gift for Jim: the watch chain. Jim sadly sat down onto the old sofa, puts his hands behind his head and tells Della that he sold his watch to buy her hair comb that she had always wanted.
  • In this story, Jim and Della sacrificed their most treasured possessions so that the other can fully enjoy his or her gift. Jim sold his watch to buy Della's hair comb and Della sold her hair to buy Jim a chain for his watch. They were both loving to one another.
