Let’s be honest – Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a somewhat generous contingency of Christmas lights about the place. And particularly those used to bring a little sparkle and magic to the family (or office) Christmas tree.

But what most festive types fail to take into account is the way in which Christmas lights have come an incredibly long way over recent years. So rather than simply investing in the usual string of bargain basement fairy lights this year, why not step up to the new LED standard?

Of course, the obvious question is why – why bother paying extra for LED Christmas lights when there are far cheaper options available?

The answer…well, there are actually multiple reasons why LED Christmas lights make sense – including the following key examples:

Why LED Lights Are Perfect For Christmas Trees

Energy efficiency. First and foremost, it’s worth bearing in mind that LED Christmas lights can be up to 90% more efficient than traditional Christmas lights. Meaning that when it comes to both saving energy and saving on your energy bills, there’s really no comparison between the two options.

Affordability. These days, the various types of LED Christmas lights on the market have become so much more accessible and affordable than ever before. Which in turn means that if you have previously been put off by price, it might be time to once again take a look at what’s on offer.


Longevity. What’s more, it’s also important to factor in overall value for money, when considering the initial purchase costs of quality LED Christmas lights. The reason being that while traditional Christmas lights have a lifespan of somewhere in the region of 2,000 hours, high-quality LED Christmas lights can carry on doing the business for up to 50,000 hours. Or to put it another way – around 40 years’ use!

Safety. Of course, nothing matters more than health and safety when it comes to electronics. Unfortunately, the combination of dry Christmas trees and burning hot Christmas lights represents a rather dangerous one to say the least. A much safer option being LED lights, which give off little to no heat whatsoever and are therefore considered infinitely safer.

Indestructibility. Unless you make concerted efforts to do so, it is borderline impossible to break premium quality LED Christmas lights.  By their very nature, LED Christmas lights are extremely robust, resistant and borderline Indestructible.

Variety. Right now, LED Christmas lights are available in just about every shape, size, colour and specification imaginable to suit every preference and pocket across the board.

Indoors/Outdoors. The very best LED lights are also durable and water resistant enough to be used outdoors as well as indoors. So if looking for a safe, effective and affordable way to decorate your home inside and out this Christmas, LED lights could be the way to go.

Sanity-Saving. Last but not least, LED Christmas lights completely eliminate the hair-tearing rage and frustration that accompanies burnt out bulbs. Or more specifically, being forced to check hundreds and hundreds of bulbs one at a time to find the one uncooperative bulb that’s spoiling things for the rest!
