Every year my mom gifts us with a photo calendar. It is so sweet and quite honestly, we each have come to anticipate it every year for Christmas. I don’t remember the last time I purchased a wall calendar. (Thanks, Mom!)
I just love to flip the page each month and be reminded of sweet moments from the year before. It’s also fun to see how much my son has grown when I compare him to the photos from the year earlier.
While I love the calendars Mom has created each year, I really adore the quality, design options, and graphic offerings of these from Minted! So this year I partnered with Minted to design my own photo calendar! I cannot wait to get mine!!!
I chose the design style named Glittering Confetti…I mean seriously, how could I not? I love anything that “glitters!” Really….it’s kind of an obsession (smile).
I loved that each design offered customization options. For instance, I could change the color palette as well as the number of photos on each month. And each page can be a different choice! Brilliant!
I chose the standard size so that I could keep it on my desktop instead of hanging on the refrigerator. I am always at my desk….working…and having fun! So, I thought I would enjoy it more if I could have it right next to me. One thing I love about creating a personalized calendar, is that I can add special dates, birthdays, & anniversaries to it which saves SO much time! I even added my son’s school calendar dates for next year on it so I won’t miss a thing!
As soon as it arrives, I will follow up with some photos of the finished project….and then I will have to wrap it up and put it under the tree with a gift tag from my mom! If you are looking for great gift ideas that are truly personal and BEAUTIFUL, then head over to Minted and shop their gift guide! No surprise, these calendars made the list! Can’t wait to see it! What is your favorite gift idea?
