Their best friends discover the truth and how the secrecy made the separate indefinitely. Written by
The Gift of the Magi is a short story about a young married couple with not much money and how they deal with buying secret Christmas gifts for each other.
The television film has been updated and expanded. Della (Marla Sokoloff) and Jim (Mark Webber) are newlyweds and desperately in love with a close circle of friends and do their best to help each other out in their working class community.
The couple are financially stretched after a theft and although promising each other not to buy Christmas presents, Della wants to buy a steering wheel for his classic car that he is restoring and takes a part time job to earn enough money for the gift but does not tell her husband.
Jim is saving money to buy Della a lens for her Nikon camera but he is suspicious of her spending time away from him on that secret part time job and then sees her with another man (her boss at the second job) and he leaves her.
As Christmas approaches, their friends hatch a plan to get them back together when they realise what has actually happened.
This is a rather saccharine family film with many sweet natured characters. The working class setting is non existent but the film has enough substance to make it watchable.
