Never mess with a hotel alarm clock again, provided you have an iPod you'd rather wake up to. Kate's friend brought this iLive iPod Portable Dock on their escape. It also provides style juxtaposition if you're staying a rustic, woodsy retreat!

It comes with an alarm clock, plays AM/FM stereo, and has AV in/out ports and a video out port--great if you want to play the sound through a speaker setup or play a video iPod through the TV. It normally sells for $69.99, but is available at Kohl's for $49.99.
