I'm too lazy busy to click through all your links, but I'd go for plain LED white lights. simple, always look nice, can't be considered tacky. I think there is a formula for working out how many metres of lights you need per foot of tree! I'm sure I've seen it on here before.

Thanks I will have a look. She needs tree lights out some outdoor decorations too.

JOhn Lewis.

White LEDS. You can set them to twinkle/ flash.

Not going to go out of fashion.

Outdoor dec. wise - what about a nice wreath for the door.

Why don't you print out all these links, show them to her, and she can decide which she likes best?

Since you like giving opinions opinionatedfreak which ones out of my links would you say are NOT tacky. She's so fussy. She moaned when I bought her silver wrapping paper last year hmm
