He sold his broken watch to buy clip for her long hair… but she sells her long hair to give him a chain for it! It’s an adaptation of a beautiful classic, the story entitled “The Gift of the Magi” written by O. Henry – and it remains a beautiful inspiration for everyone to follow.
In this adaptation of the story, the woman asks her husband to buy her a clip for her long hair but he refused because he had no money. He was so poor that he did not even have enough money to fix the chain on his watch.
But when he went out to go to work, the loving husband sold his watch so he could buy his wife a pretty clip to surprise her. When he got home, however, he was the one surprised! For his wife’s long hair is gone!
The man had bought his wife the clip for her long hair but it is now useless (temporarily, anyway) because she now sports a short haircut! But why did she cut her hair? She did it so she could buy him a new watch (she actually bought a chain for his watch in the original story, a chain he can’t use now because he had sold his watch to buy her the clip!)…
To love is nothingTo love is nothing…To be loved is something, but to love and to be loved by the one you love, that is everything! <3

While the [original] story shows that their gifts for each other are now virtually useless, these were still the most precious gifts of all because these came from the heart as they sacrificed their most prized possessions to surprise the other! Now, that really is true love…
