11 Best Outdoor Holiday Lights for 2015


11 Best Outdoor Holiday Lights for 2015

November 12, 2015

Is it too early to think about holiday lights? Never.

It’s going to take some work to get your facade outlined like a glowing gingerbread house, so let’s get started. Or you can cover your boxwood balls in twinkly hair nets or put lanterns on a stoop. Here are our 11 top picks for 2015:

Above: A battery-powered Boxwood Net Light is suitable for both outdoors and in; it stretches like a hair net to fit a potted plant and is available in two sizes from Terrain; from $28 to $38 depending on size.

Above: A remote-controlled Indoor/Outdoor Flameless Pillar Candle is available in 10 sizes, at prices ranging from $19 to $59 apiece at Restoration Hardware.

Above: Tried and true, a 200-light White LED Light Set stretches 67 feet and is our pick for a facade. With a flexible cord and tightly spaced lights, it’s lightweight and nicely outlines architectural features; $27.98 from Home Depot.

Above: To wrap around a banister or stoop railing, an LED Garland with white rice lights on a green cord is 111 feet long and rated for outdoor use; $148.99 from Lights for All Occasions.

Above: An extra-long, 50-foot cord of Plaza String Lights is rubberized to withstand weather; $299 from Rejuvenation.

Above: One of a kind, an Evergreen Themed Porch Fixture has a midcentury “Father Knows Best” style. Made of stamped steel and opal glass, it’s $375 from Rejuvenation.

Above: A powder coated steel Lantern Lighthouse created for Normann Copenhagen is suited to outdoor use and has glass panels to prevent winter wind from blowing out a candle; €97 from Manufactum.

Above: Also available in white (from Finnish Design Shop), the LightHouse Lantern is based on Nordic design traditions, in which plain lines dominate; €92.

Above: A string of cafe-style lights on a clear wire is lit by LED fairy lights encased in each acrylic bulb. A 27-foot string of Warm White Fairy LED Lights is $33.49 from Lights for All Occasions.


Above: Built to stand up to the weather, a Bollard Oil Lamp has a teak base and ribbed glass jar. It burns standard lamp oil. “Hang it on a branch, rest it on a table or place it on the ground to achieve your desired effect,” are the suggestions from Design Within Reach; $175.

Above: A Scandinavian tradition, Christmas candles in a window will cast a welcome glow on the street below. A set of two Hand Dipped Taper Candles is $8 from March.
