I know the advent calendar countdown to Christmas has already begun, but I saw this and just had to share it. Instead of cheap chocolate this one has a little note in each day. You could use it for sweet wishes, a treasure hunt, or just to share memories. Although it’s designed as an advent calendar I can see it being used all year – A dinner party with friends for new year goals and dreams, a baby shower with wishes for the baby, a game for the children… I love simple things like this as they allow my imagination to run wild. Hmmmmmm….. (see the original here)
Great Calendar / To Do list combined from Ryan McGinness. Who doesn’t need this on their desk for 2013? From the MOMA store (and on sale) and while I am talking about calendars from the MOMA store, the ever popular, ever beautiful Jumping Point calendar is also on sale. It’s a classic design, with you punching out the dots to reveal the color as the year goes on… It’s half price so grab one (I just did). It appeared on my calendar round up last year.
Beautiful letterpress coaster calendar. Useful and useful! – From W+K Studio ($30 – limited edition of 100)
Beautifully simple and delicate 2013 calendar with the days printed on tissue. I think I would love tearing these off. From Russel and Hazel.
We all have our weaknesses and one of mine is definitely Domo. He is the official mascot of Japan’s NHK TV station and the simple little character has become a worldwide brand. Domo is now bigger than the brand he represents – how about that for clever marketing. I love this calendar, no it’s not that clever or cool but it does show how versatile a logo should be (and it makes me smile). Grab one from Amazon*
It’s the time of year that it’s acceptable to start obsessing about calendars again… (at last)… What a visual reminder that a year is short and can unravel very quickly. Love this – Designed by Patrick Frey – available here (among other places)
How did i miss this?
The Goats in Trees Calendar for 2012
I have no words but I’m laughing. I wish I’d known about this, it may have made the best bad santa gift ever… go and read the reviews, they are fantastic.
If you are quick you can still order it for the start of the year!
Here is the post about my favorite calendars for the coming year
I know, it’s another calendar but I just couldn’t resist. And yes, I’m ordering this for me.
You get two rolls, one date, one month to give you endless combinations. You could put the whole year on a wall, put the month on the back of the door, even wrap gifts marked with the person’s birthday.
I may already have a collection of interesting tape (will remember to show you in a future blog post).
from Innovatoys – (it’s out of stock at the moment, if anyone finds somewhere to buy this please let me know via Email – I NEED THIS)
For my other calendar posts see here & here.
UPDATE: it’s made by SuckUK (my favorites- expect a gushy post about how I met them before they were famous one of these days) but doesn’t seem to be available at the moment. If anyone finds it let me know and I’ll share here)
Another calendar that makes me smile – it’s a tape measure, each day = 1cm.
I can imagine this being a great calendar for loosing weight… measure yourself and mark the measurement on the day. (maybe that’s just me).
Either way, I love it. From Present & Correct – warning, once you visit you may not be able to leave. More stuff from them coming soon.
I know it’s early but my first calendar arrived yesterday – and I know it won’t be the last.
I just find the combination of beauty and practicality hard to resist. I thought I’d put together some of the coolest wall calendars around. It’s still early so there will probably be more. Email me if you see one you think should be featured on creating clever.
1. Jumping Point Calender – So beautiful and classic. I want this. You punch out each day to reveal the color underneath.
2. Bubble Wrap Calendar – I had this two years running, it’s so rewarding to ‘pop’ the days away.
3. Alien Invader Calendar – This comes with a sharpie so that you can conquer the game as the year progresses (Jan starts at the bottom) – This makes me smile.
4. Hey Normal Day – This is just beautifully written, and at the end of the year you can cut the calendar bit off and just use it as a reminder of how precious each day is.
5. Carpe Diem Calendar - Each day is removable (it’s precut) so you can keep them separately and see the year dwindle as time passes. This fascinates me.
6 – Field Notes Workstation Calendar – I love the utility look of this and the fact that it was 547 days. This is the one that arrived yesterday, and I especially love that I can use it already. From the same people that bring you field notes – the notebooks.
Please send me any links to great calendars you find, I love it when you share cool stuff.
