I know I’m jumping the gun here a little since it’s not spring yet but I love the look and idea of these solar candle lanterns. They have a built in solar panel and I found them at Gardens & Homes Direct.
These lanterns would also make attractive flashlights to bring along camping. If you’re looking for a different style there’s also traditional coach style solar lanterns, which would be perfect to illuminate an entranceway.
Gardens & Homes also have LED rechargeable candles in frosted glass tumblers. The charge lasts up to 12 hours and they would be a nice change from the same old patio lights.
