SOUNDSPA DIGITAL FM CLOCK RADIO WITH TIME PROJECTION
If you’re waking up on New Year’s Day feeling a bit sorry for yourself, you probably don’t want to be hit with the noise of a traditional alarm clock.
So why not think ahead and purchase this time-teller which will wake you up to the sounds of campfire, ocean, brook, white noise, rainforest, thunder, rain or fan? On top of that, you can have the time projected on to your wall so if you do stir in the night and want to know what the time is without looking directly at your phone, you can project the digits on to the wall. £29.99 from www.homedics.co.uk
