Luckiest Redditor ever got Bill Gates as her Secret Santa

Each year, Microsoft founder Bill Gates puts his name in the hat for Reddit’s annual Secret Santa event. And every year, one lucky Redditor gets the Gates-made gift box of their dreams.

This year, it was user Aerrix, who came home from the post office one morning to a truly gargantuan delivery.

“So then I get the box open,” she wrote in a Reddit Gifts post, “and there’s just bubble wrap EVERYWHERE, but under the first layer I see a picture…and my jaw. Just. Drops.”

The picture, of course, was of Bill Gates.

And inside the packages were carefully chosen and customized presents, from matching Zelda mittens for Aerrix and her dog to a new Xbox to a beaded Zelda picture frame.

It’s clear from the gifts that Gates made his selections thoughtfully, referring often to Aerrix’s Reddit profile. He even included a few notes in the shipment: in a Cajun cookbook, for example, Gates wrote “Aerrix, Since you’re originally from Louisiana and miss your uncle’s Cajun cooking, I thought you might enjoy trying some of the recipes from this cookbook.”

He also Photoshopped himself into a picture of Aerrix, her husband and their dog, because why not?

And guess what? It didn’t stop there. Gates also donated to Code.org, a nonprofit dedicated to expanding access to computer science education, in Aerrix’s name. “It’s something near and dear to my heart,” she wrote, “as my husband is a programmer and my brother has a degree in computer science!”

Check out even more photos of Aerrix’s haul on her Reddit Gifts post. Also, we’re signing up for Reddit Gifts next year.
