My old ones have broken and have looked for replacements, ideally battery ones but can be electric, but I can't see any nice ones.

Any suggestions?

I got some wire ones from eBay that have really small lights on them.
They were about £2.50 with free delivery.
They arrived very quickly.
They are easy to mould around my candles and photos.

They look nice. I might have to try eBay, it's only the thought of trawling through the pages.

Thanks for the photo, it's nice to see how they look in real life

I've just ordered some more. 50 lights for £3.95.
Let me look for the sellers name

They have them in homebase as well, about a similar price as I've just got some for our stair garland.

Thanks for the name ihatethecold

I looked in homebase today but nothing ideal out on display.

Habitat Lights I have these - very pretty. I got them from a Habitat concession in Homebase.

Like those Habitat lights Pants smile

My eternal problem is not having a plug socket near where I want the lights, so I always seem to need battery ones.

I got these a couple of years ago for the mantelpiece. Got them for Christmas, but I liked them so much they stay up all year and have lasted well.

I have some lovely posh ones i splurged! from the little white company. They're battery operated, with bells and little felt reindeer smile

Thanks for those other suggestions. I love those Habitat ones Pants, are they quite bright?

Rocksie - they're not dim, but not glaring either. Not sure if that is helpful. confused

How about those bad boys....Ikea and battery

Thanks Pants.

Stressfree didn't think of Ikea, thanks.

I got some felt moose ones (thought they were reindeer haha) that are battery operated from Wilkos. I have them on my mantle piece and it looks very nice. They were less than £5.

I can't see them on the website but they also have a holly one which looks nice. It's instore only but there are a few others that you can order online if you don't have a store nearby.

If you don't want glare, go for 'Warm White' on the label, they are easy on the eye.

If you want very bright, then just 'White' or 'Ice White' or 'Bright White' will be just that fsmile

Wilko have a good selection in-store in my area and they are all on display so you can see exactly what you are buying.

M&S have half price lights at the moment. They had quite a few battery ones.
