Mindy Kaling confirms our suspicions about Oprah

She does - in fact - give the best baby shower gifts!

Like, ever.

Here's a summary of what Kaling told USA today in an interview on Sunday:

I got a call from my assistant. She said, 'Oprah's assistant contacted me, she'd like to drop off a present.' I'm thinking, that's so nice, like, (it's) probably flowers. I had a kid, I'm a single mom. That's really nice Oprah remembered.

It ended up being far more than flowers, though. The delivery actually required a U-Haul truck.

All you want in life is to hear that two men in a U-Haul truck are coming to your house because Oprah sent them. I was supposed to go to work that day (but I was like), I gotta be here... They arrived with a hand-carved bookcase, prettier than any professional dollhouse you had ever seen that contained a hundred of the classic essential books in children's literature... And I held my baby up to it and I said, 'Did you see what Miss Winfrey did for you?

Each book also had "Katherine's Book Club" written on it.

HOW DO WE END UP ON OPRAH'S GIFT LIST?!?!
