A 100-percent recyclable weekly planner for getting you through 52 weeks of plans and/or a perpetual calendar for putting to use year after year.
12 months of letter-pressed good cheer (including a print inspired by yours truly) and/or a tree-free planner with paper made from recycled stone.
A wall calendar sized for the whole family and/or a simple calendar for ticking off the days. (PS. If you’d like to take a trick from our family book, we use the uncoated pages for watercolor paintings as we rip off the months.)
An unbound calendar with a double life as a note pad and/or a handbound planner, covered in cloth.
I’ve said before, and no doubt I’ll say again, that I love the pen to paper ritual of crossing off tasks and checking off days. A calendar, to me, it about hopefulness, opportunity, and good luck. Sure: It’s also about deadlines, and obligations, and lists of things to do, but looked at from the sunnyside, all that is just an abundance of possibility, anyway.
Calendars, like socks, get a bad rap as far as gift giving goes, but I’m a perennial fan of both. Practical, hopeful, and, I do declare, personal indeed! Knowing how someone prefers their calendars (like their socks) requires a degree of intimacy and a certain depth of knowledge. (Not any old thing will do!)
In case any of you are inspired to treat yourselves—or those you love—as we close out another year, here are a few favorite calendars for record-keeping and plan-making. What’s more precious than that?
love your minimalist calendar posts – i choose one from it most years 🙂
Oh you have to check out the neuyear.net calendar!! We love it!!
I already have a planner for 2019, but the Karst stone paper looks not only beautiful but also very practical. I have made a note in my calendar to come back to this planner for 2020. Thanks for sharing!
I completely agree with you, knowing how someone prefers theirs socks must require some intimacy. That second paragraph is pure poetry to me! Socks are indeed the perfect gift
Great post! This is def going on my 2019 list for great gifts. Thank you!
