Solight’s Holiday Gift List
With Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanza, and other winter holidays just weeks away, we thought we’d help you jump-start your gifting ideas before the procrastination sets in. We all have that special someone who is seemingly impossible to shop for. Whether they’re a minimalist, interior decorator, a little one or an outdoor entertainer, finding the perfect gift can be a challenge.
Lucky for you, Solight’s lanterns are loved by EVERYONE.
Whether you’re a first-time Solight customer or a long-time giver of our products, we hope to simplify your shopping experience. When it comes to gifting Solight’s, you can’t really go wrong. But, here is a tad of guidance as you decide which light is right for that special someone.
Know someone who is the first to get excited about cutting edge technologies? Solight’s QWNN lantern was recently featured in Treehugger’s “Holiday Gift Guide”! Under their top gifts for “the techie,” the QWNN is celebrated for its duel function as a lantern and power bank.
Know someone who prefers “experiences” over gifts. Someone who claims to have everything they could possibly need. These can be the hardest people to shop for. The Helix is perfect for the minimalist. It is one of our smallest products, weighing only 1.8 oz. It is perfect for someone who opts to travel light and has an appreciation for compact design. The Helix illuminates a frosted glow, stores up to 12 hours of continuous light, and comes in bright white, warm white, and multi-color. One Solight Helix lantern can replace a minimalist’s reliance on batteries, night lights, and flashlights.
THE INTERIOR DECORATOR
Have someone on your shopping list who is a collector of all things beautiful. Someone whose taste is so refined it seems impossible to impress them with a gift. Don’t drive yourself crazy trying to find the perfect item, because we think we know exactly what will wow them. The QWNN is a fantastic gift for those who appreciate beauty AND function. Its origami-inspired design is sure to impress any giftee with an eye for design. It’s bright enough to light up any room, and with the additional feature of a USB power bank, the QWNN is perfect for those also seeking greener in-home alternatives.
THE LITTLE ONE
Have some shopping to do for a kiddo who loves anything bright and colorful? Someone who may still prefer to sleep with the light on… Any little one will love the Multi-colored Helix. It’s basically a rainbow trapped in a cube, with 6 different colors and an auto-change cycle built-in. The Helix is waterproof and can be an endless source of entertainment with the vibrancy its light brings to any space. Get several Helix’s set on color-changing mode in a room and have a lights-off dance party! It can also serve as a great science-lesson tool for teaching your little ones about the power of renewable solar energy!
THE OUTDOOR ENTERTAINER
Need to find the perfect gift for someone who loves to host? Perhaps, during the pandemic, their outdoor space became your main social distancing spot. Or, maybe they are gearing up to host a large holiday gathering. The Solar Puff is perfect for these outdoor entertainers. Its elegant design makes it a beautiful addition to any dining table, and its velcro loop allows it to hang from anything suspended in the air, forming a beautiful string of lights when many Solar Puffs are hung together. The Solar Puff comes in warm white and bright white colors, producing up to 12 hours of continuous light.
THE SOCIALLY/ENVIRONMENTALLY CONSCIOUS
Solight donates hundreds of lights annually to different partners serving communities experiencing energy poverty in the US and abroad. This holiday season, consider gifting to a child in Haiti through our Give-A-Light campaign. You can even subscribe them to our newsletter so that they will receive updates about the impact our donated lights are having in Haiti’s communities.
Be sure to also mention that our founder, Alice Chun, uses the end-of-life Solight products as learning tools for workshops and lectures to teach under resourced students about solar technology. Read more about her work here.
