There's something magical about Christmas. Suddenly, things which are entirely normal, boring in fact, for the other 11 months of the year become filled with joy.


Walking through your town centre? Much better when the festive lights are twinkling on every street lamp. Going down your street? Much more exciting when Mr Number Four and Ms Number 32 are having having an unspoken competition to see who can have the better light-up Santa display.

Our new favourite thing to add to the Christmas light collection is a light projector. These projectors have a range of functions, allowing you to beam lighting displays onto your home, from falling snow to Christmas trees and snowmen. It's far easier than precariously dangling off a ladder trying to rig up your lights.

These projectors are versatile too, as most can be used inside to project displays onto walls. This means they're not just for Christmas, but work really well for birthday parties, New Year's Eve, or pretty much any event where you want a little added sparkle.

Here are the best Christmas light projectors to buy right now.
