The Gift of the Magi by Joel Priddy, O. Henry

An exuberant couple urged on by their love, make great sacrifices in order to purchase the perfect Christmas gift for the other. The husband sells his gold watch in order to buy expensive combs for his wifes luxurious locks. While the wife sells her hair to the wigmaker in order to buy a chain suitable for her husbands handsome timepiece. When all is revealed on Christmas Eve, the sweet irony of their dual generosity leaves them, whether they know it or not, as the wisest of gift givers: But in a last word to the wise of these days let it be said that of all who give gifts these two were the wisest. O all who give and receive gifts, such as they are wisest. Everywhere they are wisest. They are the magi. These adaptations are artfully produced and rendered for a modern, intelligent reader - the artist Joel Priddy employs the same twists of reciprocity in his own work and is well suited to adapting and updating this classic for a new audience.
