This week’s early Christmas present is going to… Nancy (who says she “could certainly use some new lighting” and her favorite holiday glow “has to be my fireplace.”) Congrats Nancy!
As much as we love holiday lights, indoor lighting is something that you stare at every day of the year. So if you don’t love your lighting situation, this is one way to “dude, get on that” without spending any cash. See, recently we were voted one of Lamps Plus’ top home blogs of 2012 (how flattering!) and it came with a $500 shopping spree prize… but you know we don’t take freebies or swag, so the folks at Lamps Plus kindly agreed that we could pass that $500 credit to one of you! We’ve been fans of theirs for a while now since they seem to have about a million options (their chandeliers even popped up in our book a few times) so this week’s winner should have no trouble finding something to spend their light-loot on if they win.
- PRIZE: $500 to spend at Lamps Plus.com
- TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “LAMP ME!” and tell us…
- BONUS QUESTION: …your favorite type of holiday light. Do you love the white glimmer of a Christmas tree in your living room? The over-the-top glow of a house decked out in colorful bulbs on every surface? Or the warm crackle of a fire in your fireplace?
- GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, Dec 19th at 8pm EST or at 10,000 entries (whichever comes first)
- NUMBER OF WINNERS: One
- PRIZE SHIPS: We always beg every vendor to ship internationally but some companies are not able to vend things beyond the US – more on that here. This giveaway is open to the United States.

LAMP ME! My favorite is the glow of our Christmas tree and lighted swag on the staircase at night.
I love the look of crisp white lights – it makes everything look all glistening.
Kathy Belcastro says
The old fashion bubble/candle lights.
I love white lights on the tree, and candles lit. If my fireplace worked, I’d love that too :/
I love the look of a single candle on the windows of a darkened house with simple white lights along the fascia.
LAMP ME! This is a big debate in our house – I like all white lights on the tree to mimic snow (we’re in FL!) but the hubby wants colored lights.
LAMP ME! I love the Christmas tree lights!
LAMP ME! I love the classic white twinkle lights.
Katie F says
LAMP ME! I love a house with tons of outdoor Christmas lights ala The Griswolds ;)
LAMP ME! The warmth of a wood fire in the fireplace and candles glowing w/tiny red & white lights on the tree!
LAMP ME! I used to hate the icicle lights, but now I love them!
Dionne Hudson says
The various colors on a Christmas tree (reds, blues, yellows and oranges) paired with colorful exterior lighting warms my heart EVERY time because it reminds me of my very own Christmas memories growing up.
I love a roaring fire at Christmas time!
Jill A. says
Lamp me! Christmas lights!
Soleil B says
LAMP ME! My favorite Christmas lights are just the regular old (but classic) white lights. They give off such a wrm and comfortable glow. Just like the fireplace they’re next to!
Erin Buchanan says
LAMP ME ~
I love the classic white lights. Nothing over the top, just a beautiful tree with white lights, sorry no led blue tinge for me. Maybe a beautiful fresh garland with twinkling white beauties as well.
LAMP ME! In the true spirit of Chirstmas- favorite light: The Light of Christ
Kendall N. says
I love white lights! Everywhere!
LAMP ME, please :)
Favorite holiday light would be the awesome-over-the-top-blinking-to-music-with-moving-characters houses. Because that’s what my 3 year old’s into.

Allison W. says
LAMP ME! I like the look of clear lights on a Christmas tree. Thanks!
Lamp me! I like white lights on the Christmas tree and multicolored lights (or icicle lights) outside!
Melissa p says
I love driving by other people’s Christmas lights! Mine never turn out as pretty!
Lamp Me! Please lamp me!
Favorite Christmas lights are the light of the tiny Christmas village in the Department 56 Village collection that I inherited from my mother and grandmother!
I love the glow of the small lamp I have in my kitchen. Makes the room so cozy and it sits on a window sill, so from the outside it looks cozy as well.
I love the old school large Christmas bulbs that everyone used to put on their trees; I think Target might sell them now (and a much safer version so you don’t have to worry about a fire hazard!).
light me! colored lights.
light me! colored lights.
Lamp Me….i love the sparkle of the classic white lights on a christmas tree.
LAMP ME! Five palm trees in the back yard get decked with yards of brightly colored twinkle lights – even without snow it feels more like the holidays :)
Gwyn G says
I love firelight and candlelight… so beautiful!
I love, love, LOVE the warm white lights on a fresh Christmas tree. There is something so nostalgic about it…..probably one of my favorite memories of Christmas as a kid was seeing those lights reflecting outside my bedroom on Christmas Eve night, making the hallway all glowy and warm.
I love Christmas lights strung through the house.
Susan W. says
LAMP ME!! My favorite Christmas lights are white lights on my Christmas tree.
Lamp Me! Who doesn’t love the glow from a few candles around the house when it’s so cold outside :)
Aleisha Baker says
Lamp me! I love all the Christmas light delights!
I love the big chunky outdoor bulbs.
LAMP ME! We love the old-fashioned big fat colorful lightbulbs on our Christmas tree this year!

LAMP ME! I love the glow of our Christmas tree. ;0)
Angela Maria says
LAMP ME! I love all my German Christmas candelabra that remind me of this special time of year. I have the lit in almost every room and window and hope for snow!
i love the older big colored lights outside and the smaller older warm white lights on my tree. :) happy holidays.
Lamp me! I could certainly use some new lighting. My favorite? Has to be my fireplace.
Lamp me! I have a string of chili pepper lights on my front porch which are very festive,
This year I went for a white tree with white lights and sparkly pink garland and all vintage ornaments and I LOVE the look at night! It is so pretty and makes me happy!
Kim A. says
Lamp me! Love the cozy warmth and smell of the fireplace. Brings back lots of good memories at my grandma’s house.
I enjoy what my husband and I call “Mardi Gras” lights, which are the outdoor mish mash strings of lights (rope lights, larger bulbs, glittering snowflakes -anything goes!). They remind us of strings of Mardi gras beads:)
Fireplace light (away from the Christmas tree, that is…)
LAMP ME! I love when my 19 month old daughter sees the lights on the houses in our neighborhood and screams, “IGHTS! IGHTS! IGHTS!” :)
