I would like to obtain a DVD or VHS copy of the movie, The Gift of the Magi, a TV movie from the late 1970s starring Debby Boone, John Rubinstein, and Peter Graves. I have been unable to find on Amazon or eBay. Can anyone help?

I found your movie but I cannot find a version to purchase. From what the IMDB page says, it is unlikely that it was ever put on VHS for sale. It was an NBC TV special and the early VHS tapes were mostly big studio films.

Here is a listing of the place that has a copy of the film version and the other listings say "Visual Material", which might be a VHS version.


You could try your local library and see if they can borrow a copy to view.

There is more than one version?
There were several releases but did not see anything about the one with the actors you mentioned.
It's possible there was no actual movie made of this release/date.

These are from 2010 and not the same actors. (Affiliate Link)


New versions? (Affiliate Link)
