Bill Gates' Reddit Secret Santa gift

A Reddit user going by the name Aerix says she got a pretty nice surprise over the weekend: A gigantic box sent overnight to her house, with her Reddit Secret Santa gifts.

Aerix, who wrote about her experience on the Reddit Gifts site, was “blown away” by the multi-part gift pack which included a Microsoft Xbox One Minecraft edition game console and a Nintendo Entertainment System Classic Edition. Also: Mittens for both herself and her dog, as well as a personal note with a photo of Gates, co-founder of Microsoft (MSFT) and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, in a Santa hat.

Reddit is an online bulletin board and content aggregator with a huge following among techies. Its Ask Me Anything (AMA) sessions, which have featured Gates several times, are particularly popular.
