Ventriloque Alarm Clock
Looking for a new alarm clock to - literally - start off the year on a good note? The Ventriloque Alarm Clock has a charming, retro look, but still has a digital readout, lights and a snooze function. It allows you to record your own message as the wake-up sound, rather than relying on the standard set of buzzes and beeps that are so prevalent for alarms.The possibilities are endless, from a gentle reminder to a scream, depending on how much "motivation" you need to get out of bed. It is made in France, but includes instructions in English. Price: $95.
