The Gift of the Magi


by O. Henry

The Gift of the Magi: These Two Need to Communicate Better True or False

1. What does Della buy for Jim? -> A watch chain
2. What does Della try to fix before Jim gets home? -> Her hair
3. What present does Jim give to Della? -> A weather-resistant massaging stereo from Brookstone
4. What did Jim sell to buy his gift to Della? -> His juicer. He didn’t really need it anyway - he gets enough fruit servings from pineapple pizza and strawberry daiquiris.
5. Who are the magi? -> Jim and Della
