For the car nut who has trouble getting out of bed in the morning, this will make the perfect gift. The Clocky, from Nanda Home Products, is an alarm clock on wheels that sits on your night table. If you fail to react within a minute after you hit the snooze button, it will roll off the table and commence to wheel itself around the floor while buzzing away at a disrespectful and annoying 83 decibels (Clocky does not come with a volume control). It’s guaranteed to drive you crazy chasing after it to shut it off, but then that’s the point here. You’re getting out of bed. You can purchase the Clocky in a variety of colors for $40, or $46 for chrome- or gold-colored versions, at www.nandahome.com.
