A simple rule as a guide is Ampere=Watt/Volt. So if you have 45 watts of light bulbs you would need A=45/12 = 4. The relays you have found you say are 5 or 10 ampere units, that is what they are capable to handle. So if you use 10 A units you will be on the safe side.

I can find them on eBay at a sensible price but, in my customary ignorance about amps, volts, kilowatts and the like, I don’t know what amperage to go for. 5 amps or 10 amps seems to be the main choice. 5 amp units tend to be smaller which is good.
