Reddit Ends Secret Santa Gift-Giving Platform (gizmodo.com)

Posted by BeauHD from the no-explanation-given dept.

Reddit is shutting down the beloved Secret Santa platform Reddit Gifts after the 2021 holiday season. Gizmodo reports: Over the years, the related forum r/secretsanta has attracted over 200,000 members and celebrity surprises such as a cat drawing by Arnold Schwarzennegger, an autographed photo of Shaq, and annual thoughtful gift packages from Bill Gates containing items such as video games, a horse blanket, and 81 pounds of books and toys. "Why the fuck would you kill this," a top comment reads. Reddit admins didn't explain much in their announcement yesterday but acknowledged that "countless acts of love, heroism, compassion, support, growth and hilarity happened through Reddit Gifts, and those memories will live on in the hearts of our community." Plus loads of free press. Why the fuck would you kill this? Reddit has not yet responded to Gizmodo's request for comment.

One Michigan lucked out with Secret Santa this year, scoring none other than billionaire Bill Gates as her shopper in Reddit’s annual gift exchange.

The lucky recipient—known as u/szor—has participated in the user-to-user RedditGifts exchange a total of 95 times, but finally hit jackpot this year receiving a hefty 81-pound package jampacked with handpicked presents from the Microsoft co-founder.

Gates has been participating in Reddit’s Secret Santa exchange since roughly 2012 and is renowned for picking thoughtful gifts with a philanthropic twist. In 2017, he bought a cat lover a collection of feline-themed gifts and donated $750 to various animal charities. In 2018, he was matched with a miniature horse owner and sent a custom-made blanket for the horse, according to TechCrunch. And this year, the world’s second-richest man bestowed an assortment of personalized presents based on the Detroit woman’s interests.

The Redditor’s profile features a picture of her hugging the Star Wars character Chewbacca and references Harry Potter and other video games. Accordingly, Gates included adult-level Harry Potter and Star Wars LEGO sets, a Harry Potter Santa hat, a handmade quilt depicting scenes from the Legend of Zelda, plus some Twin Peaks memorabilia.

The billionaire—who is a well-known book worm—also sent a bound and inscribed manuscript of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, which the woman had used lines from in her wedding vows earlier this year. “I think this is my favorite gift,” she said in a video she posted on YouTube. “It’s really unique because it’s a manuscript book, so inside the pages are scans of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s actual handwriting and all of his notes when he was making this book.”

If that wasn’t touching enough, Gates also made a donation to the American Heart Association in honor of the woman’s mother, who passed away earlier this year. In his note, Gates wrote: “I know no gift will ever make up for losing someone so important to you. I was very sorry to hear about your mom, and I’ve made a donation to the American Heart Association in her memory. I hope you and your family find your ‘new normal’ this holiday season.”

Looks like old Saint Nick better pick up his game.

Reddit funny secret santa gifts

This lucky woman got Bill Gates as a Reddit Secret Santa, and he showered her with thoughtful gifts

Reddit/Aerrix

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.

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.

An ecstatic Aerrix posted a long note, along with photos of everything, on the Reddit Gifts site, writing:

"I'm just blown away by his generosity, which went even further than all these gifts because he submitted a donation to Code.org in my name to give more students the chance to learn computer science, which is AWESOME because it's something near and dear to my heart."

She opened the box. "I got everything out and laid it out all nice, and there was glitter EVERYWHERE."

First thing she saw was his photo and a signed note from him to verify that Bill Gates really was her Secret Santa.

The first box she opened said "Aerrix's Mittens" and "Clairrix's Mittens." "My dog's name is Claire, btw, how freakin CUTE IS THAT?! He got me ZELDA MITTENS and you guys, matching ones for my DOWG!" Yes, Bill Gates bought matching mittens for a human and her dog. To answer her question, it is VERY CUTE.

He got her a paper replica of the Master Sword from "Skyward Sword."

And he got her a Cajun cookbook because her profile says she's from southern Louisiana and misses her family's home cooking. On the book was a handwritten note that said, "Aerrix, Since you're originally from Louisiana and miss your Uncle's Cajun cooking, I thought you might enjoy trying some of the recipes from this cookbook."

She unwrapped three special-edition wireless Xbox One controllers, which made her look at the biggest box in the bunch ...

... and it was a Xbox One Minecraft Edition with a handwritten note, "I love my Xbox and thought you might like one too." She writes, "Well yes, yes I would! And I do!"

But he didn't stop there. He also got her a NES Classic Edition. She said, "I've wanted one of these SO BAD! And NOW I HAVE ONE! BECAUSE BILL GATES!"

Secret Santa changed my life (3 Years of Reddit Gifts Exchanges)

Bill Gates got a cat enthusiast for his Reddit Secret Santa, and this is the incredible result

Making sure you get your Secret Santa recipient something they actually want can be hard work, but Bill Gates has just made it look like the easiest thing in the world.

he co-founder of Microsoft has been known to participate in the Reddit gift exchange before, and this year Megan Cummins was the lucky recipient of his Christmas generosity.

“I’ve done the Reddit gift exchange for years now,” Megan wrote on Reddit.

“I always check out the Bill Gates post and laugh at how crazy it must have been for that person, never for a second even considering it a possibility for me.”

Megan had written about her fondness for cats in her gift exchange form, and Gates had obviously taken note. Among other things, he sent Megan a number of cat-related items including a giant Pusheen toy (a cartoon cat you might have seen online), a cat ornament, a snow globe, a book on cat shelters, and a Doctor Who cardboard Tardis.

He also made three donations of 250 dollars (£190) to three of Megan’s favourite cat shelters: The Friends of Felines Rescue Center, The Stray Cat Alliance, and Town Cats.

“I could fit about 5 of me in the box I got,” Megan wrote. “I figured it was some cat tower from Amazon prime – right? I mean – what else.. a gigantic cat? Let’s be serious.”

She continued: “As Pusheen was being released from his box, I picked up a letter with a picture, and thought it was SUPER weird that someone was so obsessed with Bill Gates as to send me a photo of him. Then I just caught fragments of the letter all at once “a donation has been made” “bill gates”, and my cat’s names. It clicked and I started to burst out loud laughing and crying simultaneously.”

Gates sent many other gifts, both cat-related and otherwise, to Megan, who explained her love of cats in her post.

“My life goal is to fully fund a no-kill cat shelter one day and reform the U.S. shelter system to be entirely no-kill,” she wrote. “Cats are my thing. My life-force, my happiness. However you want to put it.”

Megan thanked Gates in a YouTube video, and added at the end of her post that perhaps the most amusing part of the gift was imagining Gates completing it.

“The best part? Well, second to the donations and gigantic Pusheen,” she wrote. “Knowing that at some point during my workweek, I was drinking coffee, writing a boring email, and Bill Gates was somewhere having a professional photo taken with a jumbo Pusheen and writing me notes about cats.”
