These pleasantly effective alarm clocks make getting out of bed tolerable and even pleasant. They are specially designed to make sure you wake up with a smile.

Waking up to an alarm is probably one of the most traumatic experiences of the day. You stumble out of your comfy and inviting bed disoriented to an ear-blistering sound and try to bravely face the day. This once conventional technique was widely accepted as normal. With the latest inventions in the sciences of waking up, that previous methodology seems slightly insane.

These effective alarm clocks focus on trying to help you get out of bed, rather than forcing you to. They spoil you, cuddle you and make you feel loved. Isn't that the more humane way to wake up?
