A multipurpose gift idea.

Last year I purchased this calendar.
And this one.
And this one.
And here’s another.
You can’t have too many calendars.
Actually after admiring some prints that a friend had hanging in her home, I found out that they were from a calendar. So I went on a hunt for my own. What a fantastic idea for a gift that can be used later for decorating. Inexpensive too. The calendars are around $20. And for that price you get, not just one, but twelve images to frame. What a deal.
I found these from Cavallini & Co. They have a beautiful line that also include stationery and other quality paper products. The vegetable calendar was a popular one last year, and hard to find, so be sure to check out their offerings soon before they go bye-bye.
I like the birdies and have hung a grouping of four just this week. Aren’t they cute? I can almost hear them tweet every time I walk by.
So do you have any multipurpose gift recommendations or just a great gift idea? Do share!
I just ordered two of these! One for me and one for my neighbor. Thanks so much for the terrific idea!
Cool Dana. Which one did you get?
Seeing the botantical prints reminded me of the treasure I found a few years ago. My mom and dad loved flowers – so much, they could take a stick, put it in the ground and grow the most beautiful flowers you could ever imagine. A few years ago, I was going through some things of my mom’s (she has been dead for a number of years) and to my delight, I came across some botantical prints that were signed in pencil. I had never seen these before, they just sorta appeared among her things, but it made me feel like I had won the “million dollar prize”. We were in the middle of redoing our kitchen/breakfast room and I immediately knew these prints had to be framed and placed in this room. I know your comments were for a multipurpose gift suggestion, so I hope you don’t mind me rambling on about a precious memory.
No, that’s great! Any gift ideas or decorating are a great addition, Lynne. And using treasures that were passed down are the best way to recycle – can’t wait to see them!
How resourceful! I’ve often thought about framing some calendar photos, but never got around to it. The framed birds look very nice on your wall.
That is a fantastic idea and the framing you did is gorgeous!
OH MY GOSH, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THAT IDEA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love the way these look! You’ve got me inspired.
