Della and Jim Young, newly married, were poor. Jims wage was enough to rent only a very small apartment. But there were two things of which each was extremely proud. Della had the longest and most beautiful hair in all New York, thought Jim, as he watched her combing it; and Jim possessed a magnificent gold pocket watch, given by his father.
Christmas was drawing near, and Jim and Della began to think what present they could afford to give each other. Della always noticed sadly, when Jim looked at his watch (which he did whenever he had an excuse to), that it was fixed to the button-hole of his coat by common old leather strap. He really needed a gold chain. And Jim often thought, as he looked at Della doing her long hair, how well it would looked if only he could buy her jeweled comb to hold it in place. But a gold watch-chain or jeweled hair-comb would have cost far more money than either of them possessed.
Now it was Christmas Eve. With tearful eyes Della had counted the money she had saved for Jims Christmas present for the tenth time 87 cents. If only I knew … she thought. Then suddenly she had a wonderful idea. She hurriedly putting on her old hat and coat, she ran down the street to the shop with the notice Hair bought. She entered and an hour later walked out of the shop richer by 15 dollars, but without her chair! On the way home she stopped at every watchmakers shop until at last she found exactly the right chain to suit Jims watch.
Returning home, with one dollar and 87 cents left in her pocket, she had just enough time before Jim arrived home from work to wrap the precious gift. She also curled her remaining hair. When Jim saw it, he was speechless. Oh Jim, dont look at me like that. It will grow again, Della cried. And I had to do it. Here. She gave the parcel to Jim, you see, I had to sell my hair to get money for your present! Merry Christmas, dear.
When Jim opened it, he collapsed on a chair. I think wed better put our presents away for a while, he said gently at last, You see, Ive sold my watch to but this comb for your hair. He gave the package to Della.
Nodding while tears rose in her eyes too, Della gave Jim a brave smile and said, Our gifts are the best presents in the world, you know?
