The story is: there is a young couple, the family is poor, but they love each other very much. It's almost Christmas time. They want to buy an ideal gift for each other. In order to match Jim's gold watch with a matching watch chain, the hostess della wanted to cut off not only her love, but also the sale of the beautiful hair that everyone was envious of. He bought a beautiful chain as a Christmas gift to Jim with the money of her hair. In order to give della Christmas presents, Jim bought a hairpin that matched her hair, and sold the gold watch of her beloved.
In order to give a gift to each other at Christmas, Jim sold his gold watch to buy a set of "pure tortoiseshell, a jewel edge" comb; dela sold his long hair and bought a white gold chain for Jim. The first time I heard this article was heard on the radio. At that time, there was no feeling when I was very young, but there was a perplexity that I could not think about. Why could I not afford to buy the protagonist's band and comb in the novel until I saw the original book that it was a jewel comb and a white gold band. At that time, the radio station was used to play this novel for the political needs of the time, so that we could feel the ugliness of the socialistic warm capital class society. Of course, it was gradually understood when they grew up. This novel has always been with me since I came into contact with this original work. From time to time, I would like to take a look at the plot. Although the story is small, it is full of human radiance, warmth, love, loyalty and loyalty. In a difficult environment, a couple who love each other depend on what they cherish most in exchange for each other's favorite gifts.
After reading Ohenry's novel, I felt very deeply. In the face of the hard and embarrassing reality, the enthusiasm and courage of their life deeply touched me. Ohenry was famous for his unexpected ending. He was also known as the Manhattan poet, and thought the end of Maggie's gift carefully. Cut is reasonable, since dela is willing to sell her most proud hair to Jim for a watch chain. Then why did Jim not sacrifice the gold watch to buy the gorgeous comb for dela? Because love is always interlinked.
Jim and dela, the protagonists of the story, though very unwisely sacrificed their most precious things for each other. But let's say the last word to today's wise men that those two gifts are among the most intelligent. Among all those who give gifts and receive gifts, the two of them are the cleverest. It is a priceless treasure that they give to each other with their beautiful heart. And this priceless treasure is just a gift that no one in the world will ever be wise or wealthy. I think, perhaps this is what the author of the novel wants to tell people.
