The Chordettes once sang, “Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream. Make him the cutest that I’ve ever seen.”
Today, we’d like to think Mr. Sandman can bring something more valuable than a dream man: a good night’s sleep. That’s where the Sandman alarm clock comes in.
We know what you’re thinking: Really, an alarm clock!? It’s 2018! Who uses alarm clocks anymore when we’re all attached to our smartphones? The folks behind the Sandman Clock understand your digital addiction isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, so they’ve designed a clock that works with your devices, not against them.
At first glance, the Sandman clock looks like any other alarm clock out there. It has a snooze button, backup battery, and powerful alarm. However, it features four USB ports in the back, so you can charge your devices as you sleep.
There are tons of articles that recommend you spend an hour or two away from your screens before hitting the hay. But the truth is it’s easier said than done — especially if you’ve replaced a trusty paperback with an e-book or fall asleep to a white noise app. The Sandman clock adds an old-school flair to your digitized life, and since you’ll have the time plastered in bold, red writing, you won’t have to reach for your phone to check the time in the middle of the night. Because we all know simply checking your phone can send you on a fruitless, two-hour Instagram scroll.
Best of all? The Sandman clock is on sale. For a limited time only, it can be yours for $26— that’s nearly half the original asking price.
