Here Comes the Sun

Outfitting your nightstand with an alarm clock that's both stylish and functional is usually pretty low on the list of priorities, we know. But this retro-styled MP3 clock is too affordable to pass up. The old school metal bells might look like a harsh wake up, but they're just for show. The alarm sound is your choosing (your current favorite song or sound effect), imported into the clock via a hidden USB cord. $20, at ThinkGeek.

Up all night like some HTML-obsessed techie? ThinkGeek has a whole section devoted to caffeinated treats—from Javapop suckers to Spazzstick lip balm.
