A personalised calendar is the perfect gift for friends and family but also a nice thing to make for yourself and hang in your home. We’ve got seven great ideas for themed calendars that you’ll enjoy looking at every day.
What a year it’s been
Organise your favourite moments from the previous year and use a different photo taken in each month to create a calendar.
Tip: Photos of birthdays and special occasions will work as reminders for you
Food and cooking
Photos of yummy seasonal fruit and veg will make the perfect calendar subject and remind you to never eat out of season again.
Snowy scenes in January, seaside photos in august and falling leaves in October. Take inspiration from the natural world and use photos of nature throughout the year.
Around the world
Use photos of your favourite places and throw in some dream destinations for a daily dose of inspiration. You could add some phrases in the local language to each photo so that every month you learn some local lingo.
Play dress up
Dress your pets up in adorable outfits and use seasonal props like love hearts in February and pumpkins in October to make a cheerful calendar that you’ll love looking at every day.
Show off their artistic flair
Scan or photograph your little one’s artwork and use them to make a calendar that you’ll treasure. It’s also a great idea for a photo book.
Quote me on that
Use famous motivational quotes or come up with some inspiring words of your own to place over your photos. It will give you a pick me up each time you check the date.
If you’re good with Photoshop you could create ‘spot the difference’ photos and challenge people to find them each month. Or you could add word games or riddles to your calendar using the calendar creator tool.
