A Bill Gate 2016 Secret Santa gift


A Bill Gate 2016 secret Santa gift

Every year, Reddit puts on a massive
Secret Santa gift exchange, and, every year, one lucky person gets Bill Gates as a Santa. And boy, is he good at it.

Alicia, also known as Reddit user "Aerrix" (who describes herself as a woman who loves video games, The
Legend of Zelda, The Little Mermaid, Harry Potter and Nintendo) got blown off by her Secret Santa last year.

But she faithfully signed up again. And was that ever a smart move.

Her first clue that the billionaire had pulled her name was that the box that arrived was huge. And he spared no expense in shipping it overnight either.

Her second clue: Bill Gates wrote her a personal letter and enclosed a picture of himself with the letter, wearing a Santa hat. When you're Bill Gates and you're someone's Secret Santa, part of the fun is proving that this gift really came from you.

The letter said:

"I can't believe your Secret Santa left you hanging last year. To ensure you don't lose faith in the Reddit Community I've enclosed several gifts that I hope you enjoy.

There are a few video games for you to play, some things to keep you warm, and three of my favorite movies to watch over the holidays.

"I've also made a donation in your name to Code.org to help give more students the chance to learn computer science.

"With Best Wishes from Seattle, Bill
Gates.
"P.S. I won't be able to consult with
the Sorting Hat but I can tell that
you are quite clever – so I got a
pair of Ravenclaw slippers from
Hot Topic."

The huge box was stuffed with
individually wrapped presents, 12 in all.

Best Throw Blankets

Why it's incredible: We think the Garnet Hill Plush-Loft Throw is ideal for family life—it's the hottest toss we prescribe and richly delicate, yet it's durable enough for children and pets to thump around. It holds up flawlessly to overwhelming use and various washes. It's unquestionably the most loved of our picks with my 7-year-old and my Maltipoo, and the most diversion for making cover posts. The Plush-Loft has a layer of polyester fill sandwiched between a shell of smooth cotton sateen on one side and polyester rich (like a soft toy) on the other. We suggest the sweeping size in our manual for the best bed covers, and the toss size was similarly as all around well known with analyzers and much simpler to fold over the body.

Best Meal Delivery Kit

In exploring this guide, I addressed the 25 or so individuals on staff at Wirecutter who utilize or have attempted dinner units, to hear their point of view on the advantages and disadvantages and the best and the most noticeably awful of the various administrations. I additionally talked with Liz Thomson, who has attempted the veggie lover contributions from five diverse dinner packs for her blog I Heart Vegetables, and Laurie Lauer, who has utilized supper units consistently since December 2016 and secured them on her YouTube Channel, Jazzy Cat Reviews and More.

Best Nintendo Switch Lite Accessories

The Switch's screen may look like glass, however it's made of plastic and it scratches shockingly effectively, making a screen defender a keen speculation. The super-moderate amFilm Tempered Glass Screen Protector for Nintendo Switch and the littler adaptation for the Switch Lite are the Switch variants of our pick for the best iPhone 8/7/6 screen defender and our sprinter up for best iPhone X/XS/XR screen defender. It covers the whole Switch screen, and it's as scratch-safe as some other screen defender we've tried. The glass is perfectly clear and free of air pockets, and fingerprints clear right off. Establishment on the Switch is simple, and amFilm incorporates all the important cleaning instruments to prepare your screen. Maybe the best part is that you get two defenders in the crate (or three, for the Switch Lite adaptation), so regardless of whether you get a bit of residue under the glass on your first endeavor at establishment, you get another shot.
