This is a heart-warming tale reminding us that love is more important than possessions. Della has saved for months to buy the perfect gift for her beloved husband, Jim. But $1.87 is the miserable sum of her efforts, and it's now Christmas Eve. There is only one thing left to do: sell her most treasured possession, her beautiful knee-length hair. But when Jim returns home he is aghast - his gift for her is the tortoiseshell combs she has coveted for so long! And to buy them he has sold his precious gold pocket-watch...for which Della has just sacrificed her hair to buy a perfect platinum chain!
