In their modest financial circumstances, newlyweds Della and Jim struggle to find the perfect Christmas gift for one another. By sacrificing their most prized possessions, they are each able to afford the the perfect gift for each other. Through a bit of situational irony, the gifts are useless since they each related to their prized possession but they come to realize that their love and sacrifice are the best gifts they could ever give.
A bit mushy? Yes. But seeing as this is our first Christmas as a married couple, I thought it would be appropriate. As in previous years, I like to choose a theme on which to base my holiday shopping guides so thisyear I’m loosely basing my shopping inspiration on the story of Jim and Della.
Newlywed or not, the gift ideas I’ll be providing over the next two weeks should hopefully give you some inspiration for a few people on your shopping list (or to add to your own wish list)!
So with that, next up, I’m jumping in with a by-the-book gift guide.
