I must be in a gadget-y mood. I am really tempted to get this: The Now & Zen Alarm Clock
I never liked waking up to the jarring sound of an alarm clock or a phone alarm. The Now & Zen Alarm Clock offers a wonderful alternative. Its "long-resonating Tibetan bell-like chime makes waking up a beautiful experience; its progressive chimes begin your day with grace". Sounds great, huh?
It comes in a digital version too, though I much prefer the analog.
This should make waking up for 6AM practice a lot easier :P More info at now-zen.com
