Light the way for Santa

Although Christmas may seem a little while away, it’s a good idea to get your outdoor lights and decorations sorted before the weather becomes too cold or wet.

No matter how big your outdoor space is, you can easily get into the festive spirit with fairy lights, path finders and door decorations. If you have the space, why not go all out with novelty lighting – add Christmas characters, a light-up reindeer or project snowflakes all around. Well…it is Christmas!

Grab a ladder

Use a ladder for securing outdoor lights to high places such as trees or roofs. Wait for clear weather conditions and have another person with you when doing this, so they can hold the ladder steady.

Fixing your lights

To attach your lights and decorations, fittings will need to be purchased separately. We recommend suction hooks for windows, cup hooks for walls and specialist gutter hooks for gutters.

Big on batteries

Battery powered lights are the easiest to operate outdoors as you don’t have to worry about reaching sockets. Just make sure the battery pack is in a safe and reachable spot to turn them on and off.

Extension leads

For mains powered, use an indoor socket, making sure cables can safely go through windows or doors, and are thin enough so they can be closed after. Or use a weatherproof outdoor socket.
