Another article said she posted about this and apologised for having an iPad in her wish list. Bill could have at least sent her a Surface.

/A Pro, not an RT of course.

It's funny how most of the commenters forget that this reddit game is supposed to be about giving and fun, not about getting rich off someone else's back.
 
2013-12-19 08:08:49 PM
well at least it wasn't a donation to the human fund.

You're not supposed to give people what they want from Christmas!

You're supposed to give them things that don't really like, but that they can't complain about, because then they'd be assholes!

Like ugly ties, or cows for some poor people somewhere.

I'd totally drop random comments on people's blogs, mail T-Shirts with my face on them, show up to people's weddings and birthday parties that you find out about on the internet.  You know. Just because.

So from the photo I am guessing she bought the book  Journeys of a Lifetime: 500 of the World's Greatest Trips by National Geographic for her anonymous gift recipient.

$28 on Amazon. Good gift!

Obviously he spends billions elsewhere on charity.

And he didn't go nuts and shame all the other gifts.

He came in with a light touch. Well done, I say. Good show.

What the heck would I buy a man who can buy anything he wants.  A good haircut, I guess.  Can't think of anything else.

Secret Santa is cool, but it's not exactly a secret if you know who your Santa was.
