GT: Weird and the Best Gift Ever!
Aside from stuffed toys, stationary, stickers, dresses that I received on my birthdays, the best gift would be coming from my dad.
I was in college when he gave me weird gifts for my 3 consecutive birthdays. First, he gave me a remote control monster truck that looked like this

Then on my next birthday, he gave me a toy cockroach. I just can't find a similar picture, but it was a big toy, probably a size of a cap. It was battery operated that when you hit the back of the cockroach, it would run! He always knew that I hate cockroaches, I can still remember how I reacted when I opened the gift. LOL! And that night, I dreamt that there were cockroaches crawling on my body! So what happened with the gift? Me and dad decided to give it to our neighbor who likes playing with it. LOL!
The last one was an electronic organ, but not the expensive one. This is the type of organ where you can see on sidewalks along Pedro Gil, Divisoria, or Baclaran. Very cheap, I think it was about a thousand or two. Take note, I don't know how to use it! Though, he's the one playing for me. :)
See, my dad always gives me unusual and unexpected gifts even if it's not my birthday. He's the one who always bought me toys, from the cuddly teddy bears to the roller blades with a lot of safety padded gears. He never fails to make me feel like a child again. I guess, the thought of making me happy through simple and weird things is the best gift I've ever received on my birthday.
