Putting up the Christmas Lights!

There is only 18 more days to go until Christmas, and although I am still not at all organised present side of things the house is beginning to feel very festive!

I love Christmas, decorating the tree, arranging Christmas ornaments, lighting festive scented candles, snuggling around the fire listening to Christmas tunes.

But every year no matter how nicely I put away the decorations from the previous year, things look alot more tatty on bringing them out of the loft. And our Christmas lights always cause a headache as we fiddle and twiddle with the bulbs before giving up and residing ourselves to the fact we will have to look for some new ones. But I was saved from the daunting task of untangling the old lights when I was contacted by the people at Notcutts asking if I would like to review some of their festive lights

Notcutts are a family owned group of garden centres renowned for their excellence in quality gardening products, as well as their 19 centres, they sell their great range of products online and they currently have some super Christmas offers.

We picked out a traditional set of  white chaser lights, which are the perfect addition to every home at Christmas, these lights come in a sturdy tub which is great as it may just help us pack the lights away safety this year.

The cable is good quality green cable approx 18.5 meters in length with 200 low voltage, ultra bright bulbs, there is 5 metres from the plug to the first bulb which gives you plenty of versatility to position the lights wherever you require.

These lights also have a memory control with 8 different sequences, steady on, slow glow, chasing, and my favourite Twinkle they really are very pretty Christmas lights! Currently half price just £19.99

Also in the Christmas section Notcutts have some beautiful decorations including pre lit garlands, standing Santas, Christmas trees and village scenes. Do take a look at their website - it really will get you in the festive spirit!


  1. They look like good lights. We never seem to be able to get lights to last for more than a few years.

  2. They are lovely lights and look like they will last for many years :)

  3. This is a really well taken picture of one of those control boxes. Can I use the image in an academic research paper to illustrate the design of controllers for christmas lights? This image would be included in a paper as part of my PhD at Lancaster University.

    1. Thanks for asking, yes feel free to use the image :)
