The Gift of the Magi" is a short story by O. Henry first published in 1905. As a sentimental story with a moral lesson about gift-giving, it has been popular for adaptation, especially for presentation at Christmas time. The plot and its twist ending are well-known, and the ending is generally considered an example of comic irony.

Della looked in all the stores to choose a gift for Jim. She found it at last. It surely had been made for Jim and no one else. I had my hair cut and sold because I could not have lived through Christmas without giving you a gift. My hair will grow out again. It was a chain - simple round rings of silver. It was perfect for Jim’s gold watch. I just had to do it. My hair grows very fast. Say ‘Merry Christmas!’ Jim, and let us be happy. You do not know what a nice- what a beautiful, nice gift I have for you.

Once she faltered for a minute and stood still while a tear or two splashed on the worn red carpet. On went her old brown jacket; on went her old brown hat. With a whirl of skirts and with the brilliant sparkle still in her eyes, she cluttered out of the door and down the stairs to the street.

This was my favorite book when I was a kid. The story is beautiful and introduces young readers to the ancient cultures that lived along the Silk Road. It's a book about giving and love, about selflessness and recognizing beauty. The illustrations are phenomenal. Anne Rockwell has authored more than a hundred children's books since she started writing them in the early 60s. Gift for a Gift came out in 1974.
