It could be a solar Christmas tree, a solar-powered angel, a solar power vigil light or any other seasonal solar powered cemetery decoration.

  9. Christmas 2019 Best Solar Grave Decorations
Which solar powered grave decoration for Christmas would be the best for you is, of course, personal and depends a lot on what you find tasteful. Luckily there are options for almost everyone, colorful flowers, and lights or the more somber solar cemetery vigil light. In this article we list our four favorite picks, all are great choices when it comes to quality but you have to decide for yourself which suits you the best. We have also made a list of things worth to consider before buying any solar powered outdoor decoration. Being solar powered, the decoration will not only be environmentally friendly but also maintenance free which are two big selling points over the traditional design with disposable batteries.

The decorations have both a small solar panel and a rechargeable built-in battery. This means that as long as the solar panel is in direct sunlight the light will shine during the dark hours and you do not have to replace the batteries for a very long time. These solar lights for graves have a sensor that will automatically turn on the light when it gets dark. And even if it is a cloudy day the lights will still shine during the night, however not as bright as if it had been charged during a sunny day.

What to consider when buying a solar cemetery Christmas decoration

Quality and design - The solar grave decoration should be made of high-quality materials that do not break or get discolored from outdoor use. The overall design is also important and so is the quality of the LED lights and the built-in battery.

Built-in battery capacity - The battery should have high enough capacity to power the lights for a whole night. You can look for how many mAh (milliAmpere hours) the battery got, the more, the better. The solar panel also needs to be large enough to fully charge the battery from only one day of direct sunlight.

Weather and waterproof - Sine the solar cemetery light will be placed outdoor it must be able to handle wind, sun, and rain. You can see how well it can handle rain and water by looking for the IPX classification.

LED lights - The number of LED lights will decide how bright it will shine. More LEDs equals more light. A low-quality solar light will often have fewer lamps and will not be able to illuminate anything around it. This can be appropriate for certain kind of solar light decorations, such as solar flower light or a solar-powered Christmas tree but not for a solar gravesite vigil light or lantern.

Appropriate size - Be sure to check the dimensions of the grave decoration so it fits well and is not too big or too small for the purpose you want it to serve.

Christmas 2019 Best Solar Grave Decorations

The list of the best grave decorations from last year's Christmas received a lot of positive feedback and all of the items on that list are still good for 2019. But we wanted to do a new search and see what new grave decorations we could find this year. We looked at all the newcomers we could find and two of them stand out.

The first one, the Exhart Solar White Cross Memorial Stake is a traditional Christian cross illuminated yard stake. Although we already have a similar grave decoration in the review we just had to tell you about this one. It is beautifully designed with ornate details and the illumination is very well thought through with 12 LED lights. The Solar White Cross Memorial is created by Exhart, the same company that designed the Solar Garden Angel.

Exhart’s solar-powered cross metal stake is built to withstand all kinds of weather year-round. This ethereal yard décor will work perfectly on any season, rain or shine. Spiritual décor that will stand the test of time and soak up the sun daily to provide light through the dark nights. Check out Exhart Solar White Cross Memorial Stake on Amazon.

Our second favorite from the new solar decorations in 2019 is perhaps not very seasonal but we think it deserves a mention due to its beautiful and artsy design. The Outdoor Solar Lights Garden Crackle Glass Globe Stake Light from Homeimpro is a very high quality solar light built with more exclusive materials. The solar stake light has an ornate metal casing with a crackled and illuminated glass ball in the middle. The glass ball is lighted with a warm LED light and the intricate pattern in the metal filigree makes the whole design cast beautiful shadows.

If you want a grave decoration that is powered by the sun that works all year round this might be something for you. We know we love this stake light and think you will not be disappointed with it either. Check out Homeimpro Outdoor Solar Lights Garden Crackle Glass Globe Stake Light on Amazon.
