This past New Year’s, I wanted to do something special for my husband. We had an amazing year together and I wanted to show him how lucky I am. So I cooked up a photo calendar for him. I went to our family blog and selected 1 photo from every month that represented something special we did together.

After ordering the prints I headed over to Target to pick them up. While I was there I saw that they had calendars 50% off which made them 50 cents a piece.  Score!  It was great, it saved me a trip to the dollar store.  So the total cost was $2.98.

When I got home I grabbed all the supplies that I needed. Some tape, a sharpie, scissors, the calendar, photos, and my thinking cap. On each month’s page I wrote a special note about why this photo was selected. For example, February… I selected the photo of us paintballing on Valentines Day.  I wrote “You keep me alive with all your wacky and crazy ideas”.  Each month he does or says something to me that makes me fall more in love with him all over again. I can’t wait to give him this calendar.

Thank you Angie, and this is perfect once those calendars go on sale in the fall! Keep this in mind for the holidays, it is a sure keeper!! 😉

  1. Okay, I am THRILLED that you shared!! What a GREAT idea! I love it. We don’t have any kids yet, but we have some friends that do and for Christmas each year they give a gift of want, a gift of need, and a gift of love to each kid. My husband and I decided to adopt this idea. This is my gift of love this year! Done! Thanks for sharing, what a fun idea!

    1. What a fun idea, Angie! My husband always makes a calendar each year via Costco. He picks our fav picks from the previous year and puts it together…with little messages on days that mean something special to us. 🙂 It’s one of my FAVORITE presents! 🙂
