When it comes time to choose the best indoor Christmas lights for your home, you’ll probably first think of the lights that go on your tree. While decorating the tree is no doubt one of the best parts of the holiday season, there are dozens of other places in your house where a string of lights can add just as much twinkling holiday coziness.
The best indoor Christmas lights are ones that are easy to set up and can go in areas you may not think of, like on top of cabinets or hanging in a window. Many lights can also be used to make decorations and crafts, or can simply wrap around other decorations to make them stand out.
Many indoor Christmas lights are battery-operated so they can be placed in areas that don’t have a plug. While they can be multicolored or white, keep in mind that white lights mean you can leave them up longer (or even year-round).
