Light up your Christmas Tree

Light up your Christmas Tree

It is exciting to light up your Christmas tree and really get into the festive celebrations at this time of year. With so very many options to make your Christmas tree sparkle, where do you start? We have put together this guide full of options to help you decide what you would like to do when thinking about how to make your Christmas tree stand out for all of the family to enjoy. 

Soft glow lights to light up your Christmas tree 

If you would like to create a room with a calming, festive sparkle look for soft glow lights. Usually used white, off white or even very pale pink these lights can decorate a tree with class and style. They work especially well with decorations in one colour, such as silver or lilac and light blue. 

Light up your Christmas tree with multi-coloured lights 

In contrast to the peaceful Christmas atmosphere that soft lighting provides, multi-coloured lights create more of a fun, party feel in the room. So if you want to jazz up the tree with lots of colours, find your perfect box of lights which are often in primary colours and twirl them around your tree.

Singing and dancing lights will light up your Christmas tree

Why not try some animated, dancing lights to really get the festivities going. Many sets of lights will be available with various settings so your lights can flash in different patterns, but some will also look like they are dancing around your Christmas tree. So much fun!

Light up your Christmas tree with a pre lighted tree

If you are short on time or don’t want to untangle the Christmas lights every year, why not invest in a tree with lights already part of the branches? Many different shapes and sizes with colourful or white lights. All you need to do is unpack the tree and plug it in.

Frosty looking icicle lights will light up your Christmas tree

Bring the outdoors in and make your tree look like it has winter wonderful icicles hanging from the branches. Most of these are available in white or soft colours and will help to make your home look just like Lapland. 

Light up your Christmas tree with LED, solar or battery-powered lights

When you decide on the type of lights you would like to bring the festivities to your home, remember to consider how you would like to power them. We offer:

  • LED Christmas lights,
  • Christmas solar power, which is useful for outdoors,
  • Battery-powered Christmas lights,
