This storyboard does not have a description.
The first theme of the story is poverty. The couple in this story is so poor that one of their most valuable possessions is the wife's hair.
HAIR 4 $
The second theme of the story is caring. The couple sold their most valuable possessions just to buy a chrismas gift for their spouse.
The third theme of the story is appreciation. Upon receiving their gifts from one another, which prove useless, they are still appreciative.
The greatest example of irony in, "The Gift of the Magi" is when the couple sells their two most valuable possessions: the wife's hair and the husband's watch. This is done to get money for gifts for one another. However, these gifts are actually both accessories for each other's most valuable possessions. Although the characters in the story don't know this, the reader does which makes this an example of irony
