I got the big Lego Shuttle Discovery + Hubble kit from my parents, which I'd asked for, and then a super cool custom light and sound kit add-on for the Mario 64 question block kit from my partner which was a complete surprise. Looks pretty fiddly to install but very worth it. She also got me an old Star Wars branded Stratego off eBay - from the pieces included it came out between Episodes 2 and 3.
 

Kazin

(he/him)
An iFixit screwdriver set, eneloop pro battery kit, a Game Gear rechargeable battery mod, Pokemon Shining Pearl, and some socks. It was a good one lol

That shuttle is so nice. I think only the Saturn V rivals it.
