35. What He Gets You for Christmas
Ponyboy: A wooden flower he made in woodshop and a poem he wrote himself. He didn't want to give you something he bought, he wanted it to come from his heart. No commercial item was good enough for you.
Sodapop: Two tickets to your favorite show and a dinner at the most expensive restaurant in Tulsa. He worked an extra shifts and other small jobs just so you could get a nice night just for the two of you.
Darry: Beetles record and a chocolate cake decorated with red and green icing. He was bummed he couldn't get you to see the Beetles so he found the next best thing. And he spent three hours baking that cake.
Johnny: An acoustic guitar to replace the one Dally broke during a drunk rage. He even signed the back: The music you make is like an angel's but it will never compare to your own beauty. Ever. Love Johnny
Dally: His old leather jacket. This leather jacket has been through three bar fights, eight brawl, and countless fights with the Socs. But that jacket has protected him every time. He wants to show he'll protect you forever.
Steve: Stuffed elephant and a card he made himself. You loved animals and were studying to be a zoologist. The was a piece of lined paper but that didn't matter. Steve poured his heart and soul into a simple piece of paper.
Two-Bit: A navy blue skirt and necklace he made himself. You had been eyeing that skirt since the middle of September. The necklace was made from a bottle cap that had your names engraved on it by a switchblade.
