Window Lights are wonderful way to greet visitors to your house at Christmas, and here Andy Taylor reviews Konstsmide's contemporary and traditional range of Candlesticks, Welcome Lights and Silhouettes.
Christmas decorations don't have to be streamers or fairy lights. Robert Hall finds that there's plenty of other vivid and colourful items to choose from that will brighten up the festive scene in your household.
Nothing will add more magic to your Christmas celebrations more than indoor Novelty Christmas Lights. These are illuminated by low voltage LEDs or battery powered with low running costs to suit everyone's budget.
There are lluminated silhouettes of traditonal figures such as Santa Claus arriving in a steam train with a wagon full of brightly wrapped presents. These are particularly effective cheerfully lighting up a window on a dark evening.
Other silhouettes feature a Merry Christmas message, a snowman posting letters, and more Santas delivering gifts and, in hat and gloves, sweeping the snow away.
Musical carousels will entrance children, and snow covered scenes, including a lovely wintery Gingerbread House or alpine village look marvellous whether animated or static.
Sparkling silver and gold acrylic pyramids full of warm white LEDs will make an attractive dining table centrepiece or placed on a window sill under a glistening star to welcome visitors.
Decorate the hallway walls or staircase with snowmen, top hatted santas and angels in pink dresses, these are brightly lit by LEDs and come in sets of ten on a string.
Sets of three different sized parcels in various colours, red, blue, green and gold, with silver red or green ribbons and bows will light up the eyes of all the children who see them. Filled with low voltage LEDs, they sparkle and enhance any room.
When the little ones go to bed, a night light is a great idea. You can now surprise your children with an accurately crafted classic mini, available in yellow or red and with a union flag proudly on top. They look great and provide a source of light that makes all the difference at night.
