Can you imagine having THE billionaire Bill Gates as your secret Santa?
One women in Michigan is reaping the benefits after receiving 80 pounds of Christmas gifts from the man himself! The Microsoft founder joins RedditGifts’ Secret Santa exchange every year. Gates and his team appear to do their research year after year, according to a report by MarketWatch. The recipient, identified as Shelby, from the Detroit metro area has participated in 95 RedditGifts exchanges but this year received some of the most coveted gifts around. Here is her haul:
- Movies, books and video games, including: a Harry Potter Santa hat and a pair of elaborate Lego building sets, including a giant Hogwarts castle from Harry Potter, and a retired R2D2 puzzle, since the Star Wars droid is “my spirit robot,” she said.
- A handmade quilt depicting scenes from Nintendo’s iconic “Legend of Zelda” video game series, which she believes was custom-made, since she can’t find another one like it online.
- Tons of “Twin Peaks” memorabilia, including an embroidered L.L. Bean jacket worn by one of the crew members on set between 1990 and 1991, as well as five scripts from the second season.
- One of “The Great Gatsby” lover’s favorite gifts, however, is a bound manuscript of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s masterpiece, complete with scans of the author’s handwritten notes as he was writing the novel.
The Gates gift also includes a donation for an undisclosed amount made to the American Heart Association in honor of Shelby’s mother, who passed away in March.
