One suggestion, and you may not care one way or the other, is I like to get the colored lights that do the different functions (like fade, flash, slow fade, etc) so it's like a mini light show in the middle of the tree.

Mine does 15 different things and I set it to the "combination" mode so it rotates through them all.
