    JIM AND DELLA DILLINGHAM ARE A COUPLE WHO ARE VERY MUCH IN LOVE WITH EACH OTHER, BUT CAN BARELY AFFORD THEIR ONE-ROOM APARTMENT OPPOSITE THE ELEVATED TRAIN. FOR CHRISTMAS, DELLA DECIDES TO BUY JIM A CHAIN FOR HIS PRIZED POCKET WATCH GIVEN TO HIM BY HIS FATHER. TO RAISE THE FUNDS, SHE HAS HER HAIR CUT OFF AND SOLD TO MAKE A WIG. MEANWHILE, HE DECIDES TO SELL HIS WATCH TO BUY HER A BEAUTIFUL SET OF COMBS FOR HER LOVELY, KNEE-LENGTH HAIR.

    THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS THAT PHYSICAL POSSESSIONS, HOWEVER VALUABLE THEY MAY BE, ARE OF LITTLE VALUE IN THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS. THE TRUE UNSELFISH LOVE THAT THE CHARACTERS, JIM AND DELLA, SHARE IS GREATER THAN THEIR POSSESSIONS.

    Jim and Della Dillingham are a couple who are very much in love with each other, but can barely afford their one-room apartment opposite the elevated train. For Christmas, Della decides to buy Jim a chain for his prized pocket watch given to him by his father. To raise the funds, she has her hair cut off and sold to make a wig. Meanwhile, he decides to sell his watch to buy her a beautiful set of combs for her lovely, knee-length hair.

    The moral of the story is that physical possessions, however valuable they may be, are of little value in the grand scheme of things. The true unselfish love that the characters, Jim and Della, share is greater than their possessions.

    Novel by a young couple named after the pain of poverty afford to spare each other the story of Christmas gifts to reflect the appointment of the United States lower life difficult, praise the good character and innocent love carefully.
    Novels written in the story is a comedy, which also can be disseminated with the tragedy of color, reflect the O. Henry novel "tearful smile," the unique style

    小说通过对一对贫困得名年轻夫妇忍痛割爱互赠圣诞礼物的故事,反映了美国下层任命生活的艰难,赞美了主人公的善良心地和纯真爱情.
    小说写的是喜剧故事,可其中又浸染着悲剧色彩,体现了欧 亨利小说"含泪的微笑"的独特风格
    (小说写得是一对夫妻好不好,怎么可能是父女呢?搞笑!!!)

    James Dillingham Young and his wife Della are a young couple who are very much in love with each other, but can barely afford their one-room apartment due to their very bad economic situation. For Christmas, Della decides to buy Jim a chain which costs twenty dollars for his prized pocket watch given to him by his father. To raise the funds, she has her long hair cut off and sold to make a wig. Meanwhile, Jim decides to sell his watch to buy Della a beautiful set of combs made out of tortoise shell for her lovely, knee-length brown hair. Although each is disappointed to find the gift they chose rendered useless, each is pleased with the gift they received, because it represents their love for one another.

    The story ends with the author/narrator comparing the pair's mutually sacrificial gifts of love with those of the Biblical Magi:

    The magi, as you know, were wise men--wonderfully wise men--who brought gifts to the Babe in the manger. They invented the art of giving Christmas presents. Being wise, their gifts were no doubt wise ones, possibly bearing the privilege of exchange in case of duplication. And here I have lamely related to you the uneventful chronicle of two foolish children in a flat who most unwisely sacrificed for each other the greatest treasures of their house. But in a last word to the wise of these days let it be said that of all who give gifts these two were the wisest. Of all who give and receive gifts, such as they are wisest. Everywhere they are wisest. They are the magi.
