The Gift of the Magi
One dollar and eighty seven cents. And the next day is Christmas. So we begin O. Henry’s best-known and timeless story, which stands as a shining example of O. Henry’s writing at its finest. For in it we have the simplicity of concept, the irony of circumstance and the charming surprise at the end—which we won’t reveal here. This is the wonderful, romantic tale of a young married couple who have little money to buy each other Christmas presents. So she cuts off and sells her beautiful hair….
This is a classic story originally written by O. Henry, the well-known author, that brings to life a tale of true love. The married couple Jim and Della make sacrifices so that each can buy the other a Christmas present, but what the sacrifices and their gifts to each other mean is the real revelation of their love.We offer this classic tale the Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for all ages.
