You did it! You made it to the weekend, and now it is time to relax and get some things done. Work on your yard, shovel some snow, get the kids to wherever it is they need to be. Or, finally, take some time to do some online shopping. You know that thing you've been eyeing for a while now? Make it yours.

Once you get done snagging the big stuff, feel free to take some time browsing for some small things that you either never knew you needed or decide that yeah, it's worth owning. The best place to look is Amazon.com, and no doubt the site has more than enough to offer.

It can be tough sorting through the entire site for the best deals, though. There is just so much to choose from and you don't have that kind of time, so to help we've picked out five things that are worth checking out.

Charge everything all at once

How many times have you gone to someone else's house for a get-together and been frustrated by the inability to charge your phone? Not only do you need to find an outlet, but you have to have your power cord and plug, too.

You can't help your friends, but with the NEEKFOX USB Charger, you can make sure guests don't struggle with charging in your home. Fitted with eight USB ports as well as an LCD display to give you voltage readings, this charging station will make sure no phone leaves your place dead.

Compatible with pretty much every device that charges via USB, it is also compact enough to be great for traveling. So if you want, you could even bring it over to the get-together and be the hero.


Get more fun out of your lights

Some things are not particularly necessary, but that does not make them any less cool. You probably don't think you need colorful light bulbs, and you're right -- you don't. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't have some, anyway.

The KOBRA Retro LED Color Changing Light Bulb will fill the void in your life you didn't know existed until this very moment. The 3W LED bulb will produce light in green, blue, red or white, but can then turn those into a total of 16 different color choices. The bulb itself can then be set for smooth, flash or strobe mode, with every change and adjustment made from the provided remote control.

Ideal for decoration or parties, they are also environmentally friendly and will help with your energy bill. They can be installed the same as any standard light bulb, even if they are plenty more than what you are used to.


Take your paper airplanes to the next level

If you were ever a kid, you probably have made a paper airplane or two in your day. Some were probably more intricate than others, but the only thing that really mattered was whether or not they could fly.

Well, paper airplane technology has received a serious upgrade with the Powerup 3.0 Smartphone Controlled Paper Airplane. That's right, you can transform your ordinary paper airplane into one that glides around as a motorized machine, one that is controlled by your smartphone.

Durable and crash-proof, the PowerUp 3.0 combines physics with origami and all the components of STEAM (science, tech, engineering, art, math) in a way that will help students learn the principles of flight, aerodynamics and lift in a unique and incredibly enjoyable way.


Give your music a retro look

Music is a part of pretty much everyone's life, and nowadays there is a bevy of options not only with what to listen to but how to listen to it. But as technology has advanced, sometimes it is nice to keep things a bit old school.

That's where the Victrola Retro Desktop Jukebox comes into play. With a CD player, FM radio, 3.5mm Aux-in jack and Bluetooth capabilities it can play pretty much anything you want, and its color-changing LED lights will take you back to a time not long ago.

At just 15 inches tall, it will fit nicely pretty much anywhere, and will most definitely give you the feel of a 1950s-era diner wherever you are.


There's nothing like the smell of freshly-baked bread

There are few foods as versatile as bread, as it is a group that is varied in types, flavors and uses. Whether you are making sandwiches, desserts, toast or anything else, if you have bread, you have options.

Most breads are not all that expensive to buy from the store, but even better is making your own at home. With the Aicok Programmable Bread Machine, you can easily make delicious bread yourself. It has 15 settings that will guide you to a variety of breads, and gives you the option of three different loaf sizes and crust colors.

The bread machine's 15-hour delay timer, with a one-hour warmer, means you can not only bake on your schedule but never have to buy bread from a store ever again.
