Christmas gifts don't always have to be silly (although they're often our favourites), with a little bit of forward planning you can buy a home appliance which is very practical, looks good and doesn't break the bank.
Here's our pick of ten quirky, sparkly and colourful lights that are exciting enough to be wrapped up under the tree, but are a little more grown up than singing, dancing speakers.
LED Sound Sensitive Stool
This minimalist seat adds instant atmosphere to any indoor space with its colourful lights. It stays white during the day and then lights up at night thanks to clever LEDs inside, changing between 16 different colours and 4 different lighting effects. You can have it glowing for hours, or change the colour to the beat of music or just at the touch of a button. Available from find-me-a-gift.co.uk for £149.99.
