Desperately searching for cool alarm clocks for any of your sleepy acquaintances? Here are some cool alarm clocks ideas for kids, teens, and men.
The generalization of finding alarm clocks only for such a demographic, kids, teenagers, and men, would be wrong on my part. However, broadly speaking, this will be the demographic that tends to become complaining at the time of waking up.
Mornings are especially tough for them and it becomes a very tedious job for you (perhaps a mother) to get them out of the bed. In which case, an alarm clock would be an ideal present to indicate that they need to get their sleepy heads out of bed at a certain time. But you don’t want to give them just any kind of alarm clock. It has to be something they like, as there are many local stores that have a wide variety of clocks. Let’s see which type of clocks can be presented to each of your “sleepy someone” in your house.
Alarm Clocks for Kids
The best way to excite a child in getting up early in the morning for school is to have him/her help you choose the alarm clock for themselves. Have them test the noise and its volume, so that they don’t wake up too frightened. An alarm clock should be practical and fun for the kids, because they will be the ones looking at it each day in the room. To help you make a decision and to give a glimpse of what kids might like as their clocks, here’s a short list.

Alarm Clocks for Men
Some men, like many people, love the look of a traditional alarm clock, that has a round face and bells on top. The bell starts to clang once the alarm goes off, and it’s time to start the day. Although, most of us are half asleep when we do wake up and at times, don’t even pay attention to the clock in general. The appearance of it holds no particular advantage for some, but that doesn’t mean that an alarm clock needs to look boring. Jazz up the night stand with a funky, cool alarm clock, and here are a few examples.
- Sphere alarm clock
