2. Lumie Bodyclock Starter 30: £59.95, Lumie

Shun the shrill alarm clock for a rather more relaxed way of waking up. Lumie claims that by simulating the increasing light of dawn over 30 minutes, the clock will help you to wake up feeling more refreshed (and therefore ready to face a day of uni work). It can be used in reverse too – with the light fading over half an hour – if you have trouble switching off to fall asleep at night.
