A lucky Reddit reader got quite the surprise recently when she opened her Reddit Secret Santa gift to find the items had come from the billionaire founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates.

The Secret Santa event saw Redditors sign up to exchange gifts with random other Redditors. It was known that Bill Gates had entered the event but of course to be the lucky giftee would be quite the surprise for anyone.

Redditor, NY1227 was the lucky lady on the receiving end of Gates' gifting, receiving a travel book, soft toy cow, a donation to a charity in her name, a signed card and a picture proving all of the above had come from "Bill."

Although no multi-million dollar cheque was also included - at least, not that NY1227 has admitted to - NY1227 was suitably overjoyed about Gates' generosity.

In a post on Reddit she tells of how "...it finally hit me. All the presents I just tore open, the charity, then everything-- was from Bill GATES. I quickly went back to the book to see a really nice message and note from Bill wishing me a Merry Christmas and a Happy Birthday"

She finishes with simply "10/10 would receive gift from Bill Gates again"

If you knew Bill Gates might be your Secret Santa what would you ask for?
