Once Thanksgiving passes, it hits me that the new year is almost here. It is also the time of year where I shop for my new wall calendars. I've heard some people say they don't use them anymore, but everyone I know still has them and uses them. For me, it's the pictures!! I love to get a wall calendar with pictures of Italy on it to hang in my kitchen each year. It didn't use to matter to me where I got the calendar from, but you know, once you find a place you love, it tends to become the only place you shop because there's no reason to look elsewhere when you've found exactly what you want and need. For me, it's Workman Publishing. For the last several years, I have gotten my calendar full of Italy pictures from them and I love it so much. It reminds me of places I have been and places I still want to go. Italy has more places in it than any other, that are resting firmly on my future 'to do' travel list. My #1 place that I still want to see is Venice!!
I also gift calendars from Workman Publishing. This Audubon Nature daily calendar is perfect for a woman I have worked with for a few years. She travels a lot (or she did prior to Covid) and she loves to see gorgeous pictures from around the world, especially if they are photos of natural beauty. Who can blame her? God's work is the most beautiful to be seen.
The gift for the discerning nature lover.
A stunning combination: The exquisite photography and uncompromising production standards of the gallery calendar format married to the most transporting flora, fauna, and other wonders of nature from all around planet Earth. A hippo and her baby peer out from the water at South Africa’s Kruger National Park. Ponderosa pines sprout precariously from deep canyons at New Mexico’s Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument. Punch Bowl Falls pours into the impossibly clear water of the Columbia River Gorge. And a pair of Arctic Terns soar over a field of yellow buttercups. It’s a true gift for nature lovers—a wilderness escape, every day. Printed on FSC-certified paper.
365 Bible Verses a Year is a daily calendar that I get for my sister each year. It makes her happy to have a daily Bible verse on her desk each day. It's a nice way to start work...gets you in the right frame of mind.
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”
Delivering daily comfort, inspiration, hope, and wisdom, this perennially bestselling calendar—now with more than 5 million copies sold—combines gorgeous, full-color nature photography with the timeless words of the King James edition of the Bible. Romans celebrates faith. Proverbs upholds honor. And Matthew preaches devotion: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment.” (22:37–38). Each day’s entry is quoted chapter and verse and shines with truth. These are words to live by. Now 100% recyclable and printed on FSC-certified paper.

I like to give a calendar as a gift as I find it is practical and something everyone can make use of. I always choose one that has beautiful photographs to look atReplyDelete
I have never had these sorts of calendars, always going for a super functional one, but maybe this year is the year we do something differently!ReplyDelete
I love a good calendar, although I always make a personal one each year.ReplyDelete

I love giving calendars as gifts. So many unique designs and some really beautiful pictures in them too!ReplyDelete
I know I still use wall calendars. I just bought the one for my kitchen last week, but I need one for my office too so I'll be sure to check out all of the options on Workman's site. I did a quick search and didn't see any specifically with cows (that's what my office mainly is decorated with) but I'll have to see if there are any good farm animals options to choose from.ReplyDelete
This type of calendar is still a must in my mind. I need places to write stuff down.ReplyDelete
I buy calendars every years as gifts for my family. Great recommendations!ReplyDelete
