Glitter Lamps

by Tim Lucic

There’s one important factor when choosing a new glitter lamp, value. I’ve bought my share of cheap glitter lamps over the years, and it always becomes such a hassle for something that is supposed to bring relaxation. The metal overheats, becoming a dangerous threat to children and sometimes warping the base over time. The bulbs die out quickly, meaning you have to go out and buy more, which ends up costing much more after a while. Cheap motorized models can often be loud and sometimes the motor will stop working with time. Thus, you could buy a cheap one from some random store, but it will end up costing you more money, stress and time.

As you can tell, a poorly made glitter lamp can become quite a headache, whereas a good quality glitter lamp will add peacefulness and mood to your life for many years to come, without the stress. On the recent models, instead of a high powered bulb to heat and move the liquid, they use a motorized impeller and energy efficient LEDs to light it — using less energy, without the heat, and no need for replacement bulbs. Thus saving you money and being child safe. They are properly constructed so they are silent and will continue to work for years. Higher quality glitter is also used, which is more reflective and creates a more vividly mystifying environment.

You may be thinking to yourself, “I just want to buy a glitter lamp”. Then you don’t have to worry, as I have collected a lot of glitter lamps over the years and have found the best based on value of quality, cost, and convenience. I’ve bought and tested all the glitter lamps below and recommend them, thus you can simply select one you like worry-free. All are through Amazon, a reputable and trusted retailer, who has a 30 day money back guarantee, so you can test the lamps yourself.

Purple model of the previous, it’s a plum color but with the light it turns into a bright pink color and fades to plum at the top. Love the gradient.

I prefer the previous two personally. Bright green might be a little more difficult to “flow” in a room’s style. But if you like the color, go for it.
