Summary

One of the greatest love stories ever!

A couple struggling to make ends meet finds themselves with nothing with which to buy the other a Christmas gift. Through extreme personal sacrifice, they manage to give one another the best gift they - or anyone - could ever receive.

Suggested as a great book to read during Advent.

Very predictable. Possibly un unfair criticism given the period in which it was written.

Very short...

Only 20 minutes... Probably only 10 minutes once you remove the copyright information, music, publishing information and permission information!

The Gift of the Magi

This is a Christmas favorite from my childhood. While I enjoyed the performance, there was too much filler at the end of the recording.
