Gardensite £100 Of Christmas Decorations Giveaway (sent for review)

We've got a really exciting giveaway today - and it's about as festive as you can get! Gardensite sent us a bundle of Christmas Decorations worth over £100 and one of my readers can win the same! Apologies if you don't like what we chose, but we let the children write a big list of things they liked, honed it down to the options that didn't need a stepladder or a huge display area (sorry light up Moscow) and chose 5 items that can really add a bit of sparkle this Christmas...


Outdoor Acrylic Penguin Family (£33.99) was chosen by our 10 year old. In fact his wishlist had 6 items and 5 of them were penguin lights - I think he's trying to tell us something!


Suitable for indoors or outside and mains powered with the plug and transformer included. The cord is just over 1m long, which is long enough to be helpful for most jobs. There are 48 LED's in this set and the tallest penguin is 9 inches tall.


The Set of 8 Indoor Snowmen Light Chain (£19.99) was both our boys' choice and is very sweet. White LED bulbs to save energy and they won't become warm, and with mains power - the plug and adapter are included.


These snowmen are very cute and spread out a long way - lighting up our entire big window. Apparently they aren't for the living room though, I think the boys had their own plans for these lights all along...


The Christmas Market Mini Water Lantern (£17.99) was chosen by my partner and myself. We're very keen on snowglobes and this 9" tall water lantern will look great on the window ledge or table.


Powered by 3 x C Batteries, the warm white LEDs along with the water give a really warm glow to the room. The power also makes the snow fall slowly and evenly through the lantern. It's really calming and pretty to watch.


A lot heavier than you'd expect because of the volume of water and those ginormous batteries, From any side the buildings are finished and it looks gorgeous. We're especially pleased with this.

Premier Poinsettia Garland Red & Gold (£29.99) was chosen by my partner specifically to replace our old, tired swag. It is suitable for outdoors, although avoid the worst of the weather to keep it looking nicer for longer.


At 1.8m long (almost 6ft), this is a really beautiful wired garland which is much nicer and better made than the image online suggests. We're really pleased with it and it'll be gorgeous draped along the edge of our mantlepiece.


The Konstsmide Battery Operated 20 LED Gold Metal Ball Light Set (£5.99) was something I really wanted. I realised a couple of years ago the difference a bit of light can make to a dinner table and I've been looking for something just right ever since. These are battery-operated LED's that will last for days on end and no-one can trip over the wires...


These beautiful gold metal balls will add a definite touch of luxury to a dining table, but they have a multitude of uses. For now, they're lighting up my Winter Village...


Gardensite have hundreds of different Christmas decorations and lighting options, as well as all of the other stuff you'd expect to find at larger garden centres, from trampolines to fish food and patio heaters to garden sheds. They're online though, so you can shop with a coffee in your hand and without having to put your coat on...

Gardensite have offered one of my readers the same big bundle of 5 items that we were sent, worth over £100. Entry to the giveaway is by the Gleam form below and it is open to UK entrants only. If you are new to Gleam there's a link to advice on my Giveaways page, along with my other UK giveaways.

No entry is mandatory, but each extra task performed will earn extra entries into the random draw. Full terms and conditions are at the bottom of the Gleam form. Entries will close at midnight FRIDAY 14th December in order that we can do our best to get this to you asap and certainly in time to put it up before Christmas! If I cannot get a response from the winner within 4 days we reserve the right to draw another as this is a time-sensitive prize.

  23. My mum's friends 'gifted' us their very old outdoor decorations. We now have a santa and reindeer in the garden but half of the reindeer is missing and santa looks a bit more like the child catcher than santa but it gives our neighbours a laugh.
