Christmas lights will brighten up your home, and your mood. Put them up indoors and outdoors. In fact, the more the merrier! Christmas decorations wouldn’t quite be complete without some beautiful twinkling lights. They’re perfect to drape around the tree, wrap around bannisters, hang over the mantelpiece, jazz up porches and light up windows.

You can transform your home or garden into a grotto, or you can opt for a more low-key look. We have a fantastic range of lights to suit all tastes this Christmas. Use this handy little guide to decide what kind of lights will best suit your decorating plans.

There will never be a dull moment with Christmas cluster lights. These almost look like tinsel, but with some serious sparkle. The lights sit in clusters at the end of individual strands coming off the main cable instead of being spaced out. A glitzy set of cluster lights offer maximum impact with very little effort compared to normal single string lights.
