It’s hard to believe, but Christmas is on its way. No sooner have we paid off the last one, than the festive period is upon us again. Christmas means so many things to so many people. For you it might mean time off from work, spending time with family and friends, eating your own bodyweight in chocolates or just relaxing in front of the fire and a good movie, Christmas is an amazing time of the year.
Of all the iconic Christmas imagery we have to choose from, nothing says Christmas more than lights. Whether they’re on the tree, in the garden, strewn across furniture or decorating the outside of our homes, lighting plays an ever larger part in our lives and none more so than at Christmas.
If your mind is already thinking ahead to Santa’s annual visit and are wanting to really make Christmas a time of year that lights up the faces of your loved ones, then we have everything you need to make it extra special.
The best thing about Christmas lights is that they are so adaptive to your own style. If you have children and want to go all out to create something even Saint Nick’s grotto would be proud of, you can do that. If you prefer to remain restrained without giving out too many ‘Bah Humbug’ vibes, you can do that too. Any combination of stylish or full-on lighting designs can be used when Christmas comes around.
Most people will have a Christmas tree as the focal point of their festive decorations. Whether you choose a real tree or an artificial one, the festive lights that adorn it provide an amazing sense of occasion. We have some fantastic LED trees with multi-action lights already included. If you prefer to go ultra-contemporary, you could forgo the actual tree entirely and just have a wooden symbolic tree or iconic star, like those from Dar Lighting, that have the lights already built in.
Christmas lights come in many shapes and sizes. Whichever style you’re going for we’ll have something for you. If your Christmas tree lights are sorted, then there are other ways to bring some beautiful coloured lights into your room.
String lights offer you a level of creativity with your lighting that other forms of illumination just can’t match. Whether you want to light up your trees or shrubs in the garden or decorate windows and doors to bring festivities into every room in your house, we’ve got you covered. String lights now come in a range of styles that go way beyond typical ‘fairy lights’ including reindeers, gingerbread men (or women) or delightful polar bears. The kids are going to love them just as much as the adults.
In recent years, the number of homes that have their decorations spilling out of the door and into the garden have increased enormously. If you’re wanting to keep up with the Joneses (or even set the bar high for them yourself) then we have some amazing acrylic animals to create your own alternative nativity scene and help light up the neighbourhood. Our range includes the classic reindeer but also a moose, a St. Bernard dog or the classic penguin. They all look incredible in the darkness, but still retain a sense of style without being tacky. No-one wants that in their nativity, even if it includes penguins.
Whatever you might be asking Father Christmas for this year, make sure he can find his way to your home with some beautiful lighting, both inside and out. You wouldn’t want to end up on the naughty list.
