Shimmering lights illuminating the garden are a lovely sight to welcome you home on cold winter evenings in the run up to Christmas. A twinkling wreath on the door or a lit-up tree will bring a smile to the faces of visitors and passers-by alike. And if you want to create a truly magical festive display, why not introduce some festive friends to the family? A silhouetted reindeer or two will light up the garden and bring real charm to the outdoors at Christmas.
Spark your imagination this winter with our Christmas lighting outdoor ideas and add a dose of extra festive charm to the exterior of your home.
A festive welcome
Some sparkly string lights are the perfect way to make your garden feel festive and cosy during the Christmas season. Experiment with highlighting different areas of your outdoor space, from your front door to your log cabin.
Light up paths, driveways and gates with festive cheer with carefully placed lights in shades of snowy white or festive colours. Think about injecting an added touch of magic with light in the shape of winter characters or faux trees.
Winter al fresco
The outdoors needn’t be out-of-bounds in winter. Light up your seating area by weaving twinkling lights through seats, around the summer house or shed to create a cosy spot for a warm, al fresco, festive tipple.
Charm and inspire guests, neighbours and passers-by alike with a festive display featuring friendly reindeers, cute snowmen and other sparkling friends in the garden.
Bring sparkle to bare winter branches with pretty fairy lights. Spread the lights in a random pattern and wrap or weave them around the branches. Experiment until you get just the effect you’re looking for in the garden.
A garden wonderland
Create your very own winter wonderland by lighting up your favourite garden ornaments and furniture. Try introducing some festive friends such as reindeers or snowmen to finish off that perfect festive look.
Outdoor projector lighting
Light up your outdoors with magical patterns projected on to the front of your home. We have five Christmas products this year that will help you achieve this impressive, eye-catching feature.
