REDMOND, Wash., Dec. 20 (UPI) -- A Reddit user said in her post on the website she was shocked to find the secret Santa who sent her items from her wish list was Microsoft founder Bill Gates.

Redditor Rachel said she opened the package she received from her secret Santa on Redditgifts, an online gift exchange for friends and strangers around the world to exchange presents, and found the secret Santa had gotten her a stuffed animal and a National Geographic coffee table book from her wish list.

Rachel, posting as NY1227 Wednesday night, said the package also contained a donation to Heifer International made on her behalf and picture of her gifts with her benefactor -- Microsoft founder Bill Gates.

"And then 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 (not pictured, because I really want to keep one part of this gift to myself) my jaw hit the EVER LOVING FLOOR," Rachel posted.

She said she hoped her post served as a proper thank you to the Microsoft founder, and she had one apology for her unmasked secret Santa.

"Sorry for the apple iPad on my wish list, that was really awkward," she wrote.
