Gazebo Lights – Honest Product Reviews

If you’re looking for gazebo lights then check out these real product reviews.  Believe it or not, this guide is unlike most others as I’ve purchased every one of the lights that have been reviewed.

Therefore, all my reviews are honest and unique, Let’s go….


First up for review is the Copper Wire String Lights by Lighting EVER.  First of all, I’ll give you a quick overview of this product, a list of features and then get into the scrutiny afterward.

When I placed My Order

I purchased these lights during the ‘Black Friday Sale’ and took advantage of my Amazon Prime membership too.  The lights were advertised to arrive on Monday the 27th of November but in fact came on Sunday the 26th of November.

You can see my order receipt below as proof of order and delivery.

Order Receipt

Delivery of Product

Contrary to the receipt above I actually answered the door and was handed the product, so not sure why it says left near the porch or back door but to be honest that doesn’t really matter at this point.

The product arrived packaged with another item that I’d purchased that Thursday too and they both came in this Amazon box, as you can see below.

Amazon Delivery Box

As mentioned I ordered on Thursday and they arrived on the following Sunday.

I had a knock on my door at 7 pm and was surprised when a guy handed over a parcel ( 2 in fact as I’d ordered other lights as well).




What are these string lights?

Lighting Ever in box

These string lights are a very bright indoor or outdoor lighting option.

They measure 10 metres in length and in total have 100 very small lights that actually emit lots of light that can easily illuminate a very dark area of your home, garden or structure.

The copper wire ensures that these lights can be easily wrapped around beams and structures that you want to light up.

Another benefit of the copper wiring is that when wrapping or tieing your string lights up the lights can be attached and twisted very securely as the copper is tough and once twisted will not unwrap or unravel itself.



Main Features

  • Waterproof – This set of string lights can be used outdoors due to the IP65 level of waterproofing.  Technically speaking, the copper wire can withstand a powerful jet of water and is dust tight.
  • Safe & Secure – The low current and enameled copper ensure that the copper wire is insulated and will not overheat.  This means you can enjoy your event with peace of mind.
  • Easily Bendable – The copper string wire is very bendable which means when it comes to hanging or bending around structures it is very versatile and easy to adapt to most objects.
  • Instantly Ready To Use – The package is delivered ready to use.  All you need to do is attach the plug to the connector on the lights section and you’re good to go.  It literally takes 10 seconds….
  • Ideal for Indoors & Outdoors


The Lighting Forever string lights are a very bright, mains powered copper string light and are a fantastic piece of equipment.  They can be used for a variety of purposes and as mentioned before, they are nice and bright, as well as being waterproof, 10 metres in length and extremely lightweight.




Mains Powered String Lights – Lighting Forever

The first string light up for review is the mains powered copper string lights by Lighting Forever.  See what I unearthed and don’t forget I’m being 100% honest and this item was purchased using my own money…

Lighting Ever - 10 Metre String Lights

Why Did I Order This Light?

Well, I had to start somewhere, so why not a set of lights that were on offer due to Black friday.  There were also lots of positive comments on Amazon so I wanted to see just how true they were.

This is me holding the box below.

First Impressions on Assembling?

I’ll be perfectly honest.

I was expecting a thick rope/chord with larger bulbs on it….

But admittedly, I didn’t read the product description and it never promised the above.

The description is exactly what I’d received, so fair play to the supplier.

Was I Impressed?

I was kind of waiting for disappointment after expecting a bigger product but as you’ll see in the video further down,  they are actually surprisingly bright for such small lights.

Was I impressed? Yes,

Product In Action (Video)

Below is the video promised, it’s the first video I’ve made so go steady with the comments….

And then the big turn on….

Honestly, it was way smaller than I imagined BUT WAIT…

It wasn’t mis-sold, it was me not reading the product description.

Here’s a video of me unravelling it and plugging it in.

How Did The Lights Arrive?

Amazon Delivery Box

The lights came in the traditional Amazon box.

If you’ve ordered from Amazon before you’ll know exactly what I mean but for those that haven’t it was emblazoned with Amazon on it and about the size of a shoe box.

It also had Amazon Prime tape to seal it.

How Long Did Shipping Take?

The product came 1 day early and on a Sunday.

WOW, I’ve never had anything delivered on a Sunday but I was surprised and delighted and if I hadn’t of been at home it would have been left around the back in my designated, safe place.

The reason it came so fast is that I am a member of Amazon Prime.

If you don’t know what it is, basically, it’s a membership and for a subscription fee, you can get quicker delivery for a number of products that must qualify for prime.

Don’t worry you can sign up when you’re on Amazon if you’re interested or click the banner below.

First Impressions on Opening?

Admittedly, like most people, I scan when I read which normally means I miss all the important stuff…

(Probably similar to most people nowadays, as everybody seems to be in a rush…)

Which means when I opened the box I was expecting a really thick chord with large bulbs.

Honestly, it was way smaller than I imagined BUT WAIT…

It wasn’t mis-sold, it was me not reading the product description.

Here’s a video of me unravelling it and plugging it in.

Buying gazebo lights or a new outdoor light doesn’t have to be difficult, however, with so many different to choose from it does get overwhelming at times!

Not anymore…..

I’ve reviewed what I believe to be the best outdoor lights available to buy.  I’ve also included several different kinds of outdoor lighting such as mains powered, solar powered, battery operated and lots more outdoor lighting

I’ve reviewed 3 products from every category of outdoor lighting.

tomshine outdoor string lights

What you will receive

  1. 1 x 25ft cable for lights
  2. 25 bulbs for the cable + 3 extra as spares (28 in total)
  3. User manual

You will receive everything you need to have a working set of lights therefore, it’s just a matter of connecting everything together and you’re set to go.

Features Include

  • Capability – These Tomshine string lights are more than capable of lighting up your gazebo or garden area leaving you to relax or party until late at night.  You also have 3 extra bulbs in case you break one or one goes out.
  • Water Resistant – This product comes with an IP44 rating and this means that it is ‘protected from water spray from any direction’.  Therefore, this means that they can resist rain but would not recommend leaving them outside permanently.
  • Size – With 25ft of lights you really can cover a large area and with the possibility of buying a further 2 extensions to cover a much larger area.  I would certainly recommend buying the extension cable for this product too.
  • Easy To Hang – Every bulb has a clip attached to it which means that these lights really are very easy to hang up.  This simple feature is not always available from other brands.
