Today’s holiday gift idea is one that I fell in love with at first sight, and I’m sure that you’re going to be super excited about it too! In fact, you might just forget about the holiday gift giving and decide to keep the Michaels Recollections Calendar Kit for yourself (ahem, not that I’d know anything about that!). Available exclusively at Michaels stores (retail $39.99), this scrapbook style calendar kit is a fun way to show off your photos in style each month, and the photo pocket layout means you won’t have to spend a lot of time putting it together.
The kit comes with an album (with a tiny pre-drilled hole through the front cover for hanging on the wall), blank calendar pages, stickers, 3×4 and 4×6 double-sided insert cards (twice the fun prints and patterns to choose from!). It’s SO much fun to customize and make each monthly layout your own!
I wanted to wait to do my January layout until after I have some photos from our next snow day, so I printed out this recent photo of my three boys and skipped ahead to my February layout. All I had to do was choose my 4×6 and 3×4 cards, insert them into the pocket pages and start adding holiday stickers and important dates to my calendar.
There are loads of cards to choose from to customize and personalize your own calendar. It’s so simple and foolproof that it makes a perfect gift idea. Busy mothers and grandmothers will LOVE this kit because it gives them the look of a custom designer scrapbook with just a fraction of the time and effort! When the year is over, simply take the calendar off of the wall and store it up on the shelf with your other scrapbook and photo albums. It makes a great memento!
For my March layout, I added a little bit of extra pizzazz with a set of alphabet stamps. The cards are lovely and can be used as-is straight out of the box, but I love to add a little bit of easy peasy embellishments to personalize it even further. Honestly, this kit was a blast to put together, and I’m sure that almost anyone on your holiday gift list would love to receive it as well!
