To start, The gift of the magi is very interesting. My opinion of this novel is truthful, touching, very well written, and great for the holidays. The main idea of this novel is based upon, to give is to receive and to d something good it may return. Firstly, The section in this novel that I love the most is when Della¿s husband Jim finds out what she has done to her hair. Della had cut all of her hair off to get money in return so she could buy the watch chain that her husband has been wanting. When they open there gifts on Christmas morning Della finds out that Jim had bought her combs to brush her once beautiful hair, so they both put there gifts away till they think they will deserve them. To conclude, I think that this is a really good novel for all ages, and that everyone should read this. This novel is touching, very well written, truthful, and great for the holidays. Maybe everyone can learn from this novel.

This short story is about two people that are lose in love. They dont have money(they are poor) to buy a gift.They sacrifesid somenthing to buy a special gift.this book is about a poor caple that wanbt to give for christmast a gift but the problem is that they dont have money to buying the gift.One of my favorite part of this short story is the one that della sell her hair to buy somenthing for her husbamd. I recomend this short story if you are lose in love and you are trying to do somenthing that dont make any sense. R.N
