Calendars make great gifts for that office exchange, extended family members, or anyone who “has everything” that you don’t know what to give! Choosing a theme you know your calendar’s recipient will really enjoy is what makes the gift personal. Plus, it’s an item they’ll use frequently and they’ll be reminded of you every time they look at it!
Best of all, calendars are very affordable gifts, especially when you select from our under $15 list. Having a small budget doesn’t mean you can’t give a thoughtful gift that your loved one will enjoy all year!
A few specific criteria were used when selecting these calendars. First, of course, they had to have fabulous photography. No one wants to stare at an ugly calendar all year! Second, they had to be under $15 in price, because calendars should be an affordable gift. Third, usability was a factor. I looked for grids of a usable size to write in, and that meant the calendar had to be a pretty large size. All of these are right around 12″ by 12″ in size, give or take a few tenths.
Nothing says “Europe” quite like castles! This Willow Creek Press calendar features photos of mighty castles from all over Europe (and a few outside of Europe, too). From famous castles like Neuschwanstein and Windsor to less recognizable facades, these historic fortresses span medieval times and the Renaissance. This calendar is the perfect gift for a history-loving traveler who can’t confine their passion for Europe to a single country!
The hills are alive in this calendar featuring the many charms of Austria! From tiny mountain villages to Austria’s history-infused cities, it’s all here in rich color and breathtaking detail. In January, this calendar starts out with a lush wildflower meadow in the mountains – just the cure for those short days and snowbanks!
Steeped in the unique character of these regions of the Czech Republic, this 2020 calendar from Brown Trout is printed with eco-friendly soy ink on sustainable materials. Seasonally appropriate photography lends a transporting immediacy to the images. This multi-lingual calendar is a great gift for a traveler who likes to go places slightly off the main tourist trail.
