Holiday shopping is a stressful task — how are you supposed to find an item that shows just how much you care about your loved ones? Given how difficult it is to shop for "regular" people, we can only imagine how complicated gift giving in Hollywood must be.

What do you get for the celebrity who has everything? It's hard to pull off "the perfect gift" for someone who probably owns a tiger and has money to burn.

As it turns out, a little creativity goes a long way. The Office star and The Mindy Project creator Mindy Kaling got the greatest gift of all time, which she posted to Instagram for the rest of us to enjoy.

Kaling's friend and coworker, Sonia Kharkar, got the actress the perfect gift: dessert plates decorated with candid photos of her, stuffing her face with food.

"For years @soniakharkar has been taking photos of me when I'm eating and I would always ask her why the hell she was doing that," Kaling captioned the photo. "Yesterday she gave me these six dessert plates printed with photos of me shoving food in my face. It's the funniest gift I've ever gotten."

The plates truly are a work of art.

TBH, we can't think of a better way to eat dessert than by scooping it up off our own faces. 

Here's to hoping we can give and receive equally thoughtful presents this year. This one's going to be hard to top.
