Need a quick last minute gift? Or maybe something inexpensive you can give to a large group? This last minute DIY gift calendar covers both!
Easy, right? Cute, personal, and cheap…that’s my kind of gift!
When you print out the calendar cards, you’ll notice that there’s a large blank section in the middle. You can, of course, leave it blank for the recipient of your gift to decorate, or you can do it for them. Here are a few examples of ways you can decorate your last minute customizable DIY gift calendar…
If you’re giving this to a grandparent or a teacher, you can have your child draw pictures on each card. My son drew a picture of him and his Nana together. It’s going to melt her heart!
Or you can decorate it yourself! I drew little images that represented each month (July=Beach, September=Happy Fall, October=Pumpkin). They don’t take too much time to do since they’re so small and they’re super fun to design!
You could also print out little 2″x3″ pictures and tape them in place with a little washi tape. I think I’ll make one of these for my husband’s office. It’s a small enough calendar that it won’t take up much space on his desk and I think he’ll get a kick out of seeing a different picture for each month.
