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.
In the past Christmas decorations were limited to streamers and fairy lights, but not any more as Robert Hall discovered when reviewing the huge range of novelty Christmas items that are brought to life by LEDs.
Nothing will add more magic to your Christmas celebrations more than illuminated novelty decorations, lit by low voltage LEDs or battery powered with low running costs to suit everyone's budget.
There are many illuminated silhouettes of traditional figures, these are particularly effective when displayed in a window to light up a dark winter evening.
Santa is pictured arriving on a present laden train or busy delivering those presents. A cheerful snowman in hat and gloves is seen posting his Christmas cards or sweeping up, and another silhouette features a Merry Christmas message.
Musical carousels will entrance children, and snow covered scenes including a lovely Gingerbread House or alpine village look marvellous whether animated or static and placed on a side table.
Sparkling silver and gold acrylic pyramids full of warm white LEDs will make an attractive dining table centrepiece or positioned on a windowsill perhaps under a glistening acrylic or paper 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 Christmas 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, their sparkle will look fantastic in a porch or under a tree.
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.
Finally, no house at this time of the year should be without a life size inflatable Father Christmas holding a miniature lit tree or a Moose dressed in a red hat and scarf, both of whom play a tune and are bound to be the centre of attention.
