Homemade calendars. as Christmas gifts. are a very personalized way of sharing your family's special times with close friends and family. They are useful, don't take up much room and they aren't like knick-knacks that require periodic cleaning.
Keeping that in mind, remember to take pics, throughout the year, that can be used to make homemade calendars. Pictures taken on Valentine's Day, birthdays, Independence Day, etc. will come in handy when you are organizing your calendars in December.
Make a file of your favorites throughout the year so that you don't have to search for them at the time you are creating the calendar. There is enough stress at Christmas without having to seach for pics that you want to use. Ask me how I know. :-)
