When you think of Christmas lighting, there's nothing more traditional than fairy lights. David Coton has been looking at the new generation of Christmas Fairy Lights that will brighten your home this year.
Clear, white and multi-coloured LED fairy lights are ideal to envelop your tree and fill your home with brilliant light.
Konstsmide's Clear Christmas Indoor Lights come in three different lengths, up to 1635cm (53ft) with 100 LEDs. Other Konstsmide LED Light Sets have 80, 100 or 120 lights that can cover a tree or decorate your house in warm white, ice white or multi-colours.
These are all superb value, as is the Micro Light Chain set from Konstsmide. This is always a best seller, creating a galaxy of sparkling light that stretches over 1624cm (53ft).
However, of all the Konstsmide Christmas lights, you may think that stars of the show are the other Konstsmide LED Micro Light Sets that can sprinkle white, red, blue, pink and multi-colours throughout your home. These are static and multi-function, very bright and highly durable, the largest set is 27.33metres (89ft) long with 320 LEDs.
Premier also offer static indoor Christmas Fairy Lights to be hung on a tree, over a bannister or along a mantelpiece. There is a choice of 300 and 400 clear bulb sets, or 200 clear or multi-coloured bulbs.
As an alternative, Premier sets of 400 multi-function ultrabright LEDs can twinkle and chase and delight using eight dazzling effects.
There's no doubt that LEDs have introduced a new dynamism into the Christmas household with intense light sets offering colour and movement, and all these sets make full use of the technology with great value for money products.
