You don't need to have a head wrapped in curlers, Maribou kitten heels, and night coat on to appreciate the Westclox 43000 Big Ben Moon Beam Alarm Clock ($40). An authentic reproduction of the 1950s classic, it features upgrades that weren't available back in the day. This clock is easy to use, and backup batteries make sure you're still on time in the event of a power outage. It features a soft light that blinks silently, five minutes before the alarm time is reached. If that weren't enough, the yellow plastic case and convex glass lens are beyond cute!
