While there's nothing wrong with a black plastic digital clock radio with the big red numbers per se, you can do better. This bird alarm clock from &design ($54ish right now, varies with the exchange rate) does have a digital time and date display, as well as controls, but they're hidden away on the other flat side, so that you can alternate between pretty and functional as you choose. And the sound? Birdsong, of course. Available in beige, this pale blue, or pale pink.
