The Best Outdoor Christmas Lights


Back to Trends


It’s the most wonderful time of the year, which means it’s time for your home to undergo a festive transformation, inside and out. And one thing’s for sure, no Christmas makeover is complete without some staple lighting, creating everything from subtle finishing touches to standout festive scenes.

So, whether you want to bring some festive cheer to your neighbourhood or you just want to brighten up your front garden, here are our top tips for finding the perfect outdoor lights:

1. Choose the power supply

One of the most important things you’ll need to do is make sure the lights you’re opting for are suitable for outdoor use. It probably goes without saying but, those marked ‘indoor’ shouldn’t be used outside, even if you are placing them under the cover of a porch.

You’ll also find two choices for the power supply – battery operated or mains powered. Mains powered will need plugging directly into a socket in your home, with the transformer often needing to remain inside at all times. Battery-powered lights do give you a bit more flexibility as you aren’t restricted with cables, so can put these in harder-to-reach places to create maximum impact.

The type of bulbs are another consideration you might want to make as LED bulbs are energy efficient, so are perfect if you’re going to be lighting up your street for the whole of December!
