I want to get some new Christmas lights this year but I want to try to get the best deal I can <tight>.
Preferably warm light (golden).

Hit me with your recommendations!

Asda has got quite a good choice this year. We got 50 blue led lights for £5 (indoor / outdoor on a timer) and they also had warm white ones. I think 100 were £10.

Wilkos alway have lots of nice, cheap lights.

I hadn't thought of wilco or asda. Will have a look online.

Op if you find some can you share? I have had fingers burnt with harsh cold lights I hate. I want a warm and golden glow too

Winterisnigh yes of course. I've been caught out with that too. I've found some that look lovely on ebay but they're under £4 and I'm worried they'll burn my house down!

I got mine from home bargains last year, tiny LED in warm white, they look lovely on the tree and they can go outside if I change my scheme at any point!

I also have some red berry type lights that I nestle deep into the tree, but I am undecided about whether or not I will deploy them this year or not!

I have these 300 warm white from Lightsforfun - I got them in the summer they are lovely and apparently LED is much safer and cheaper to run - they are for 6ft trees though they have a range of options they twinkle and flash etc. I am really pleased with them.
£25.99 but they have lots of other lights too.

Lights4fun online is fab. I just ordered loads of Xmas lights and they were a bargain. Sort of things that would be 4 times the price in John Lewis.

We got these from Amazon last year for outside our house, the 40 metre option warm white, we paid £20 at the time. They stayed up all year (whoops) and I've just tested them at the weekend and they still work fine.

Does anyone know where you can get some reasonably priced cluster lights for outdoors?
