Each year during the holidays, Reddit users participate in the site’s Secret Santa exchange. One notable participant is Microsoft creator Bill Gates, who annually leaves all other Secret Santas in the dust with his over-the-top gifts. Many hope and pray to get Bill Gates as a secret Secret Santa. But only one Redditor prevails. This year, VietteLLC was the chosen one and she was rewarded with a 30lb. Pusheen.

VietteLLC was presented with her Bill Gates haul on December 20th. After an awkward exchange with the FedEx man, who arrived to her door with a refrigerator-sized box, VietteLLC scrambled to find out what was inside the enormous package.

She wrote on RedditGifts that she immediately recognized “the big grey blob shape and 2 tail stripes” of the Pusheen plushie. Being a huge cat fanatic, VietteLLC was so happy that her Secret Santa understood her feline-loving soul.

It admittedly took her a bit to understand that Gates was behind the wild gift.

But then it hit her. Her Secret Santa wasn’t obsessed with Bill Gates. Her Secret Santa was Bill Gates.

On top of the Pusheen, Gates sent VietteLLC an entire box of other cat-related gifts. He also made three separate $250 donations to three of the VietteLLC’s favorite chat shelters — The FFRC, The Stray Cat Alliance, and Town Cats.

Oh, Bill — you’re truly the best Secret Santa ever.
