Can anyone, preferably someone who's struggled with insomnia, recommend an alarm clock? Some details inside.

I have been using my phone as a clock for a few years now. It didn't cause any problems until now. I'm dealing with a lot of stress at work and it's causing me insomnia. The stress is temporary and should die down by December.
It's the kind of insomnia where I wake up in the middle of the night, feeling wide awake. I eventually end up checking the time on my cell phone, with the hope that it's at least 5 am. It usually is closer to 3 am. Problem with checking the phone is that I get (work related) emails push notifications on it throughout the night.
I need to stop using the phone to check the time. Can anyone recommend an alarm clock? I would like one that is minimal on technology, emits no light, and, since I am a light sleeper who doesn't snooze, preferably one that has a nice "alarm" - think classical music, chimes, etc. Also, budget is a consideration. Am hoping to spend less than 40$.
