Best Holiday Entertaining Items Under $25 on Amazon

We're pretty sure you'll be the first among your friends to have these lights, with their more global glow. This 15.8-foot string of 40 LED lights shines through a golden Moroccan globe, emitting a warm white color that sets the mood for your party. The lights are water resistant enough for outdoor use; just don't let them soak in the water. They're AAA battery-operated, so you don't have to worry about connecting them to an electrical outlet. So much more flexibility. There's a 6.6-foot lead from the battery box to the first light (for easy hiding), and half a foot between each bulb. You also choose among three settings: stead on, flashing, and off. Price: $9.99. (Prime available)
