Epic Secret Santa! Reddit Goes For World Record With Gift Exchange

The social media site is spreading cheer worldwide again.

In 2013, over 85,000 people across over 120 countries came together to break the Guinness World Record for the largest Secret Santa gift exchange. Now Reddit is going for it again.

Sign up before December 1 and you'll be be matched to another participant.  Research your giftee's interests and reddit history in order to find the perfect gift and ship it by by December 19. (Recommended spending amount is at least $20)

When you receive your present, post a thank you note to your Santa with photos on redditgifts!

Some famous names have participated in the past including actor and former governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger.  One lucky redditor was shocked when she opened her gift. The card read: "To Rachel, From Bill." It was from Bill Gates! 

The package contained a stuffed cow along with a note saying a donation had been made in her name to Heifer International. Also included was a large National Geographic book about world travel.

What are some of the most interesting Secret Santa gifts from redditors? Here’s a sampling: 

  • A Radio Flyer big wheeler for a redditors daughter. 
  • Bacon candy along with a Borat mankini.
  • 22 pounds of Idaho potatoes.
  • A vintage shaving kit from his Secret Santa with a letter welcoming him to “f-in manhood.”

Sign up here by December 1st. Happy giving!
