What to Ask for?

Okay guys so my 22nd birthday is coming up 4/27, and i know i want things for my jeep but what should i ask for lol. I'm really wanting a rear bumper with a swing-away spare tire carrier so I keep telling my parents i just want cash. Which is fine they say, but they also want to get me something they can see me open lol. I'm not sure what to ask for throw out some suggestions lol nothing crazy expensive as i'm going to get the rear bumper/ swing away tire carrier.
Seat covers? my okala neoprenes have seen better days...
Bikini top perhaps?
I don't know lol and need some help!!! time is ticking

I think a bikini top would be a good choice, they're only about 80 bucks with the mounting bar. That's the next thing I'm getting anyhow!

At least in my personal opinion, the best possible swing-away tire carrier is not one that depends on a single support/pivot point on the bumper as a bumper mounted swing-out tire carrier does.

More manufacturers are coming out with tub mounted swing away tire carriers because it is easier to make them strong enough so they don't start sagging/rattling later on. The tub mounted type has two main support/hinge points plus a third support for when it is closed. Bumper mounted carriers only have one main support point plus another when it is closed. Off-Road Fabricators in Arizona was the first tub mounted carrier and I'm on my second ORF carrier on two Jeeps. It's a superb product that after 7 years of carrying my 35" tire and two usually full 5-gallon jerry cans never sagged or rattled. The weight is passed through the tub via two hidden brackets to the rear rollbar mounts which support the weight, the tub itself doesn't actually support any weight.

Another company has come out with that type of design but I forget who it is for now, and Savvy is working on their version too. Not to mention you can run any style bumper you like because this type of spare tire carrier doesn't even touch the bumper. OR-Fab | Off-Road Fabricators is who made mine.

For most TJs without extra armor like corner guards, a couple hours at the most. Simple hand tools and a drill is all you need. ORF has a number of dealers but I think you'll probably get the best price if you mention my name to Gerald who is now a dealer for them. He can be reached at gman@savvyoffroad.com. Actually better would be to send it to info@savvyoffroad.com which will be also seen by everyone including Blaine Johnson, his partner. Gerald runs several businesses so he sometimes gets delayed a day or two in responding.

I bought mine directly from ORF but I think they're now a dealer-only manufacturer.
