A more civilized way to wake up: wind chimes

Throw away that "Clocky" before it kills you.

Forget " Clocky ," the " Sonic Bomb ," and the flying alarm clock . The last thing we need in the morning is something that shatters our eardrums or requires us to chase it around the room to shut the damn thing off.

At our advanced age, any of these could easily shorten our lives with coronary issues. A far more civilized way to awaken is the gentle tones of a "Wind Chime Alarm Clock" and, naturally, its continuous snooze functions. (Our definition of the snooze button: Unplug clock, go back to sleep.)

But if you must get out of bed, we suggest pairing this with the " Wake 'N Bacon ." Mornings might not be so bad after all.
