It’s Friday, you’re at work and perusing the internet, trying to stave off the last day of the workweek.
You’ve only got a few hours left and need to kill some time, so why not do some online shopping?
Instead of taking of treating yourself with Chipotle for lunch for the fifth straight week, treat yourself with a nice gift on Amazon.
We’ve combed through to find some of the best offers on a variety of products that really stood out from the pack.
This list covers the spread, from cooking utensils, to home security, fitness and relaxation so get your weekend started right with a new gift for yourself or others and save a little money while you’re at it.
1. Keep your home safe at all times with this outdoor security camera
Going away soon? Get some peace of mind with the Nest Outdoor Camera and lower your stress by a million. It’s an easy and great way to keep an eye on your home when you’re not around.
The camera is the best we’ve ever tested and it’s on sale now to save you from burglars, animals and plenty of other possible situations. The best part? It’s on sale and can make a difference around your house ASAP.
2. Start your New Year’s health kick with a NutriBullet
My dad used to have a Pepsi and some Peanut M&M’s every morning after breakfast, now, he’s gotten rid of the whole routine and has a smoothie instead. That’s all thanks to the NutriBullet, which makes smoothies, protein shakes and more quickly and efficiently.
You can also use it for other kitchen tasks like blending and making breadcrumbs. The set comes with two large cups to take on the go with you, or drink at home and the whole 13-piece set hasn’t been on sale like this since Black Friday.
3. Track your fitness goals with this Fitbit Charge 2
Fitbits have been huge for a while now and for good reason. They’re watches that can track your steps, calories burned, heart rate, food intake and much more—plus, they’re in style.
For those trying to get fit this year, or simply looking for a way to better track their fitness, we highly recommend the Fitbit Charge 2, which is on sale on Amazon right now.
4. Get your 2018 reading list going with great Kindle book deals
Was your New Year’s resolution to read more books? Amazon is making that possible with deals on plenty of top-selling books for Kindle to start 2018.
While there are many to choose from and I can’t read any minds to pick genres, a personal favorite of mine is “Unbroken” by Laura Hillenbrand. It’s a story about a former Olympic runner who was stranded after a plane crash during WWII and spent time in Japanese prison camps.
Definitely read the book before you see the movie, or choose your own adventure with the huge book selection on Amazon.
5. Give your day a jump-start with this popular espresso machine
Need a little bit more than a coffee to get going? Nespresso has you covered and for less than you’d normally pay. Treat yourself to cafe-like espresso with the Nespresso Citiz Espresso Machine by DeLonghi.
Because of its quality, variety and 25-seconds-and-done speed, this device won Reviewed’s Editors’ Choice Award for the best single-serve espresso maker.
6. Shake up your cooking routine with a sous vide precision cooker
The Anova sous vide precision cooker is an easy way to cook amazing meals in a new and different way than your old oven crock pot or a pan.
You put your meat in a bag with some seasonings, drop it into the water, set the temperature and time and voila, it cooks to absolute perfection, as stated in our tests.
