    • Des: You lost your ring finger to pay for the wedding? Total "Gift of the Magi".

      "The Gift of the Magi" (1906) is a short story by O. Henry with an ironic twist. A poor couple gives Christmas gifts to each other; the wife has her long hair cut off and sells it in order to buy her husband a watch fob for his family heirloom watch, while the husband sells his family heirloom watch to buy his wife jewelled hair combs for her long hair.
