One Christmas eve, young couple Jim and Della were panicking trying to find out what to give each other.
By: O. Henry
What can I do?
Gift of the Magi
After Jims Christmas bonus was canceled he had an idea how to get the money for Dellas present
We buy ; )
As Della stared out the window, she saw a sign that gave her a way to gain money for Jims present
Gathering all her courage Della cut and sold her hair, gaining 20 dollars towards Jims present. A golden watch chain.
Jim walked through the door in shock. Della then explained why she got her hair cut. Jim apologized then said she'd understand his shock once she opened her present.
My gift is useless now. What should I do?
You still love me don't you Jim?
Jim bought her silver hair clips. But it cost him his watch. Della bought Jim a beautiful watch chain but it cost her her hair. Yet that is the gift of the magi sacrificing the most valuable thing for love.
