A photo calendar is a great gift for pretty much anyone, even if someone receives multiple, one can be kept at home and one at work. We've all got those friends and family members who are really hard to buy for. Either they have everything, don't want anything or are just very selective about things. If you don't want to go down the easy route with gift vouchers or money, why not create a personalized photo calendar for them? They're easy to design, can be sent direct to you or your loved one and will be used throughout the year. It's a practical present with a lot of personality.
There are so many print services out there that offer personalized calendars so it can be a bit of a minefield choosing where to go. The last thing you want is to end up with a paper-thin, poorly printed calendar where the images don't accurately represent the photo you uploaded. Since Christmas Day is just around the corner (where did the year go?!) there isn't much time to rectify things if they do go wrong so it's best to go somewhere that is tried and trusted.
There are so many calendar styles to choose from including appointment photo calendars, A4 photo calendars or even a personalized year planner. To help you choose what style and service to use, we've put together a list of some of our favorite options.
Some personalized calendars you will be able to create entirely on the website by uploading or importing photos from your computer or Google Drive/Facebook/Instagram. Other services may recommend you download its purpose-built software to ensure the process is as simple as possible.
