Shine a light

I rather like these eco-friendly, solar powered lanterns, which look like sunshine captured in a jar.  Very pretty on an outdoor table or ledge, either for dining outdoors, or camping, or just for some ambience.  It glows in either yellow or blue tones.

I’m apparently not the only one to like this lantern, either, as I note it was voted UK eco-friendly gift of the year for 2007.

I’m actually a big fan of lanterns as gifts (I can recall two I’ve given previously), as they manage to be useful and unusual and decorative – all good things in a gift.  I especially like the Mexican-style lanterns, made from tin with nail-hole-punched patterns in the sides. 

Lanterns are also good for the ‘hard to buy for’ types, as it’s a generic – but not boring – present.  There’s a lovely selection of candle lanterns at this link.
