If you want to hang up Christmas lights (or other holiday light fixtures) outdoors, you’ll need the following: 

  • Christmas and holiday lights
  • Extension cords
  • Gloves
  • Gutter clips
  • Ladder
  • Power stakes
  • Tape measure 

Instead of hanging the Christmas lights yourself, you can hire a professional installer to take care of this project for you.
