Best Christmas light projectors

·5-min read

Christmas is a time for magic and childlike wonder and it’s incredible how the right lighting can change everything.

No matter your age, you always remember the house growing up that understood the seasonal assignment and dressed their homes up to the nines with colours, statues and all kinds of decorations.

Whilst fairy lights are a popular choice and have an undeniable charm, getting them around your entire home can be a time-consuming chore. The hours spent untangling from the previous year aside, you also have to find tactical ways to conceal the overwhelmingly long wires and find replacements for those troublemaking bulbs.

Light projectors are not only easier to set up and maintain, but also a more energy-efficient way to shine some Christmas cheer onto your home exterior.

Plus, the various pictures and patterns available – including snowflakes and stars – mean you can easily find the right effect to suit your tastes. With a huge range of price points, there’s also a light projector to suit all budgets.

Get your home Christmas-ready with our pick of the best.
