remote controled LED(s) Answered

Okay, I need help with an idea i just had for a gift for my cousin. I need a cheap and simple way to remotely turn on a battery powered LED(s) light from about 15 to 20 feet away and I was wondering what remote set up would be best and not drain the battery(s). any suggestion would be highly appreciated! :D

You could use this if you have an arduino as it costs 9.5$ so... it can wirelessly turn on quite a lot of LEDs or motors or servos or a lot more things from about 8 meters away! So this is a cheap solution if you have an arduino...if you don't then

But if you only need to control a bulb wirelessly cheaply then maybe this might be a solution...

Thank you, I think the second option is more of what I'd need. I also think it would work better then plain LEDs. Thanks again!
