It’s definitely not Christmas without a few festive decorations.

If you still haven’t put your’s up yet, then we might be able to help. We’re thinking tinsel, trees and lights, lights, lights.

Here we take our pick of the best Christmas lights that will help give your home a magical feel-good glow.

Berry Christmas

A nice natural mix (Picture: Not On The High Street)

Nothing says Christmas like a garland of red berries, and this string of 72 LEDs will add a festive flourish to the tree, table or mantelpiece.

Use rechargeable batteries for the most energy-efficient way to create a berry good glow.

Buy red berry fairy lights by Idyll Home, for £29.95, via Not On The High Street.

Lights fantastic

Power up the pretty vibe by draping confetti fairy lights for the jolliest festive mood, now and into 2023. Choose plug-in, medium lights with 120 white LEDs or a shorter, battery-powered string of 108 LEDs, with a built-in timer for added energy efficiency. We’re leaving them up all year.

Jolly good

Circle back

Deck the walls

Dance with the stars (Picture: Habitat)

Shine bright this Christmas by hanging bold, neon, star lights in disco brights. Mains powered, the lights are IP44 rated so can be hung outdoors but the plug needs to stay inside. Let’s get this party started.

Understated, but delightful (Picture: The White Company)
