No birthday gifts for JJ??

I am seriously considering not getting anything new for my son's birthday. Our house is overwhelmed with toys due to people's generosity. We now have approximately 8 million small plastic-type toys, all of which make noise. (I do have a few trucks I bought him used during the winter that he hasn't seen yet. I plan on wrapping those and calling it good!)
I suggested my MIL buy wooden blocks or something like that for his birthday, and she brought him some YESTERDAY (3 weeks early). Granted they were used (I don't care), but I'm guessing that they weren't an "expensive" enough gift for Cole since she only paid $3.
Anyone else having this problem? What are you getting JJs for their birthdays? How do I tell MIL that she CANNOT keep bringing him 1-2 new toys every month? I love that she wants to get things for him, and I've encouraged her to ask when she wants to buy something for him so I can suggest things he needs, but that isn't working.
Sorry that this is a partial vent as well as a question. ;-)
