Stevie Wonder – Sorry, Son ... No Gifts for You, But I'll Take Some (VIDEO)

EXCLUSIVE

Stevie Wonder just called to say ... I'm not giving you any gifts for your birthday so deal with it -- but I love you.

Stevie was out with his sons Kailand and Mandla at Mr. Chow ... for Kailand's 14th birthday -- and you gotta figure a super famous and successful dad like Stevie gives awesome gifts, right?

Our photog raised the issue, and got a surprising -- and maybe admirable -- response. 

Let's just say ... signed, sealed, delivered? Not always.
