One Reddit user got a shock when she found out the "Bill" assigned to her via the website's Secret Santa was actually Bill Gates.
"I thought Bill sounded like a friendly fellow," Rachel said on Reddit.
Bill Gates gifted her a stuffed cow along with a donation to the non-profit Heifer International and the travel book Journeys of a Lifetime.
"The first thing I noticed was a stuffed animal. I didn’t know I gave off the stuffed animal vibe, but I excitedly added him to my collection of teddy bears and other delightful friendly creatures. Next, I found the card. To me, from Bill. This still had not clicked, by the way, that it was Bill Gates."
That was until she noticed the photo of Gates in front of a Christmas tree with the book, cow, and note.
" ... and then it finally hit me. I went back to all the gifts completely shocked."
Rachel realized she had committed something of a faux par on her Christmas list that was sent to the Microsoft billionaire.
"ps: Sorry for the Apple iPad on my wishlist, that was really awkward," she wrote.
Rachel said the gift given from Gates was "the gift perfect for anyone" and said she was "sincerely very appreciative that you took the time to find something so fitting for me."
