Christmas Gifts combines two of O. Henry’s beloved short stories, The Gift of the Magi and The Last Leaf, into a contemporary, holiday story that highlights the importance of caring for people through the act of giving gifts. On Christmas Eve, siblings Aiden and Sophia sneak downstairs to take a peek at their haul of presents, only to discover that their parents have been expecting them. They find a singular gift that they are allowed to open, a strange book, called Christmas Gifts. As they read the story aloud, they meet Jim and Della, a married couple from 1960s New York City, and the contemporary friends and roommates, Johnsy and Sue. How will these stories come together? Will Aiden and Sophia learn the lesson their parents have intended them to learn? Will they discover the true importance of gift giving? Find out by tuning in to Christmas Gifts.
