What do you think would be the best light source inside the bamboo basket?

My backyard lighting is very poor. I am looking for a light source that I can place inside the bamboo basket in order to have a nice ambiance and a light source that does not tire the eyes while sitting in the evenings. My preference is for led. Think of it this way, there is a garden of approximately 20 square meters and there are 8 bamboo baskets both hanging from the middle with a rope and in the corners of the garden. Which light source do you think can be placed inside the bamboo basket?

You're not giving us much info such as the size of the baskets, how much light do you need (or expect), and can you wire them to a power source. On the last part sounds like probably not, so you would be looking at solar. In that case there is a wide range of product available.

Regarding power drain versus light output, LEDs are the way to go.

How long do you need them to run each night, and how much sun would they get during the day?
