So to remedy darker days and cold weather, we’re featuring five of our Must-Have snowman accent lights.

Night Lights

Night lights are even more cozy in the winter time, and when they are as decorative as these two snowmen, you can even enjoy their charm during the day.

Frosted Dome Lights

Two of our newest domed lights feature snowy charismatic characters. One shows a winter scene complete with a snowman, kittens and birds, and the other frames two sweethearts walking through a winter wonderland.

Flameless Candle

This flameless LED candle not only features an authentic vanilla wax exterior, but the snowman’s nose is made from cinnamon. Stack multiple of these subtly scented candles or place them throughout your home.
