The Laser Gun Alarm Clock. Everyone could use a little incentive to get up and outta bed.. how about the fact that your alarm clock won't shut up until you have the ability to shoot that sucker with a laser? By then you're alert, so you might as well get dressed. $26
No real explanation needed here. It's just an awesome to-do notepad, and you can even keep one for yourself. 2 for $10
