For non-experiential gifts, check out our book recommendations and amazon favorites.

To earn cash back while online shopping, we love using Rakuten (get $40 on your first $40 order). Or you can scan your receipts to earn gift cards from Fetch (get 2,000 points for your first receipt). We're only recommending these because we have personally used them and have earned cash and gift cards from both. 

If you have any other ideas, please let us know in the comments below and we'll add them to the list.
