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!

DIY-gift-calendar-Crafts-Unleashed-1Or 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!

DIY-gift-calendar-Crafts-Unleashed-2You 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.
