What the community says about The Gift of the Magi
- "Yes, yes, I know, you probably had this one assigned to you in school and to this day you have no idea why it mattered. Or maybe you figured it out eventually and want to read it again. Either way, do not waste a second and buy this! The illustrations are gorgeous and really enhance the story. Beautiful and a bit tragic without being mawkish. Kind of makes you think, too.""Gift of the Magi is a classic. I loved reading it during Christmas a few years back. It's about the sacrifices that a couple makes in their relationship due to lack of money and how they make due. They each buy each other a present in December, so the story tells all they had to go through to purchase each gift."
- "This story is Christmas themed and beautifully written. It's a story about love, sacrifice and ordinary people becoming extraordinary through their actions. It's the perfect book to read yourself or to read aloud to your kids at Christmas time and it stays in your mind long after you put it down. A must read."
- "I recieved this book as a Christmas gift from my mother , who has since passed. I loved it. Its one of the best books I have read. The charachters and plot were well written and its just a great story. It has a special meaning to me now."
