I had a wonderful Christmas and am grateful for all the wonderful gifts I received, however, there are a handful of gifts that I hope to give myself in the upcoming months. I am glad I will be able to earn Cash Back on all these items!

1. A new MacBook Pro

2. Jonathan Adler Frame (or really anything he makes)

3. nails inc. Magnetic Nail Polish

4. New stationary, like this one from Kate Spade

5. Great new coffee table books, like this Pucci one

I decided to suggest some personal favorites that I myself have enjoyed while earning my lovely Cash Back through Ebates. I am an avid reader, however, it is rare that I get so excited about a book that only took me  couple of days to digest. 


I used to watch The Office regularly and was always a fan of Mindy Kaling, but I was skeptical that her book would be worthwhile. Boy, was I surprised. It is full of gut-busting anecdotes, photos, and more. I would laugh out loud and read passages several times over. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? And Other Concerns is the kind of book you will pass along to everyone you think might like it. It is available through several Ebates Stores here. Grab your copy today!
