Alarm clocks have sure come a long way over the years. Instead of being forced to wake-up by the shrill sound of an old school alarm clock, we now have the choice to be serenaded by nature sounds or gradual light exposure.The Homedics SoundSpa Fusion Alarm Clock($60) could easily belong with the rest of my sleek alarm clocks selections with its large LCD display and five interchangeable face plates. It also gives you the option of waking up to six different nature sounds, or the radio, or your iPod. And how much do I love the fact that the auto-off sleep timer can be set to 15, 30, 45 or 60 minutes? Yay to sleeping in!
