As part of our No Alarm Clock Left Behind program, we can't leave out this Rosendahl bauble, whose case is made of polycarbonate crystal and features a chic blue backlight for its digital display. As it leans back, it rests on a pyramid beneath, dazzling all who gaze upon its countenance.

Take your pick of a 12-or 24-hour display, load it up with two AA batteries, and impress your friends with this upscale design by Flemming Bo Hansen for $99.
