The TV personality and producer, 60, shared a photo of the special gift she received from the Top Gun: Maverick star, also 60, which has become an annual tradition between the pals.
"My Tommy sent me a coconut cake!! I love that guy," O'Donnell wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo of the mouthwatering dessert.
The Bundt cake with white coconut shavings came in a box decorated with white and beige ribbons and a jeweled reindeer. Cruise sent the gift with a note that reads: "Warmest wishes to you this holiday season."
Cruise has sent gifts to O'Donnell with the exact same decorations and note every year. "Christmas is here when Tommy's gift shows up," she wrote on Instagram in 2020.
O'Donnell opened up about her over two-decade friendship with Cruise on SiriusXM's The Jess Cagle Show last year, explaining why she'll "always love" the Mission: Impossible actor.
"He is the only person who never misses my birthday. In knowing him for 25 years now, he has never missed my birthday or an event in my life," said O'Donnell.
The A League of Their Own actress said she knows "him in the way that I did in that time 25 years ago" and thinks he's a "classy guy" for never forgetting her on her birthday and holidays.

"A lot of people say to me, it's just his secretary, but I don't believe that," she explained. "I think he knows in early March, 'Oh, it's Rosie's birthday coming up,' and he sends me something. Every single year for 25 years."
