Celebrating the magical moments in your life is enjoyable and easy when you have the ultimate accessory at your disposal. There’s something rather wonderful and deeply satisfying about glancing at a beautiful and striking photo calendar that displays the photographic highlights of an entire year.
A luxury wall or desk-mounted personalized calendar that’s visually appealing makes a great weekly and monthly timetable and an excellent motivational tool throughout the year. It’s also ideal for gifting to loved ones, as a special birthday or Christmas present.
First Quarter Achievements
Many people feel that the January to March first quarter of the year often lacks fun, thrills and excitement. After the Christmas festivities and New Year celebrations are well and truly wrapped up, there may be little to look forward to on the horizon.
Having a calendar that you can personalise with your favourite photographs provides the perfect excuse to make more of your first quarter achievements. You can snap some shots of beautiful January landscapes on wintery walks, and feature an array of favourite photos of your loved one to show off on the February month of love calendar page.
Once spring gets into full swing, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to practice your photography skills in nature. Capture close up shots of stunning spring flowers in full bloom, or display a selection of images that showcase the use of different camera angles, lenses and filters.
You can also include photos of family and friends, and all of the social events that you’ve attended and places visited at the start of the year.
Celebrate Summer Holidays
When home and work life is hectically busy, your annual summer holiday may seem a long way away. To keep you motivated, it’s a great idea to display a variety of breathtaking and exotic location shots in your personalised photo calendar.
From April to June, you can feature scenic panoramas of iconic travel destinations that you’ve previously visited, to get you excited for your summer escape. To inspire wanderlust, curate a unique calendar arrangement of photographs, by asking friends and family members to donate their favourite holiday photos for inclusion in your bespoke display.
Photo calendars that display your favourite travel snaps are guaranteed to be a much-admired feature in your living space. Select your favourite family holiday photographs, and display the best and most striking snaps on the July and August pages of the wall or desk calendar. Or create a stunning photo collage that showcases multiple images of your travels.
Sometimes you may need some motivation to keep you focused on all the things that are on your daily to-do-list. After a magical summer holiday, you may not feel like autumn has much going for it.
Creating new happy memories is a great project for the months of September to November. Your stylish photo calendar pages can be filled with your favourite images of friends, family, pets, places or activities. To bring each photo to life, it’s worth taking some time to personalise the calendar with text in the form of captions and comments. Don’t forget to include dates, names and places too.
Celebrate milestone birthdays, anniversaries and other personal achievements in the autumn, by proudly featuring the special moments that were captured in photos. Arranging the images in chronological order allows you to tell a story from beginning to end.
If you prefer to show off a single photo per month, make sure that you select the best shot like a pro. Choose an awesome autumn themed photo as a focal centrepiece and frame it with white space, or add mini prints that chronicle complementary activities.
Adding decorative motifs, paper mementos and motivational quotes will give the third quarter section, of your year in pictures wall or desk calendar, a charming scrapbook style that invites the viewer to explore your favourite photos on display.
By the time that you turn the page of your year in pictures calendar from November to December, you’ll probably be ready to start the countdown to the festive season.
To get you in the mood to celebrate Christmas with all the trimmings, load your personalised wall or desk calendar with a colourful selection of favourite photos of Christmasses past but not forgotten. Include a cheeky photo or two of happy youngsters looking forward to unwrapping the pile of presents under the Christmas tree. A romantic shot of your beloved puckering up for a kiss under the mistletoe is also another must-feature photograph for your festive celebration collection.
If you want to surprise your friends, family or colleagues with a stylish and unique present this year, you can’t go wrong with a DIY calendar that’s personalised and luxurious. You can preload the pages with an array of striking images that inspire the viewer to explore new experiences throughout the year, or present the calendar blank for them to fill up with snaps every month.
For maximum impact, wrap the customised calendar gift in a piece of plain coloured Christmas wrapping paper. As the gift wrapping will lack the wow factor, the recipient probably won’t be expecting too much, as they start to unwrap.
Sit back and enjoy watching them express surprise and delight, as they discover an exclusive present that features stunning images inside. Your spectacular year in pictures photo calendar is destined to be talked about and viewed in great detail from January to December in 2024.
