Reddit's Secret Santa gift exchange took an interesting turn this year when 24 year old Reddit user Rachel received a gift from a surprising secret santa.

Her secret santa was no less than the billionaire founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates. The world's richest man, according to Bloomberg's Billionaires, gave Rachel a stuffed cow representing a cow he donated on her behalf to Heifer International. The 69 year old charity provides livestock, seeds and trees to those in need.

Rachel also received a National Geographic travel book titled "Journey of a lifetime."

An overjoyed Rachel wrote Gates a thank you note in a blog post on RedditGifts:

I am so very, very grateful for the amazing and thoughtful gift you have picked for me! Not only is the gift PERFECT from anyone, but I am sincerely very appreciative that you took the time to find something so fitting for me.

Expressing some concern the that Gates might have sneaked a peak at some other items on Rachel's wish list, Rachel added:

Sorry for the iPad on my wish list, that was really awkward.
