Oh! It's almost Christmas and I don't have a present for Jim! I only have $1.87!
Do you buy hair? If so, how much is my hair worth?
I buy hair. And I'd say your lovely hair is worth about $20
But. I sold my hair! I didn't think you'd still love me! But what will you do with this chain without a watch?!
Of course I still love you! Now, let's put our gifts away. They're too nice to be used right now. And yes. I'd like for you to put the meat on
My dear Bella. Why, I sold my watch to get you this comb!
Bella is sitting on the couch sobbing over how she can't buy her husband, Jim. A gift for Christmas, she doesn't know what to do with the $1.87 that she has.
After Bella stopped sobbing she walked to town only to find a wig making shop. Where she sold her hair for $20 and bought her husband a golden chain afterwards for $21.
Even after Bella sold her hair, her husband still loved her. It turns out he sold his golden watch to buy her that beautiful comb, which means they both gave up something precious too them. To make each other happy. That, is the true, Gift of Magi
