Stick-Up Monthly Planner

If you had one of these Stick-Up Monthly Planners you could keep better track of certain events like Mother’s Day in the UK this Sunday (Mother’s Day in the US is May 11, sorry if my post yesterday confused you). And, in true Poketo style, the planner is open dated so you can use it whenever you wish. In busy months, write down important events and stick the page on a mirror or wall so you won’t forget. And, of course, there’s always the Stick-Up Weekly Calendar ($10) if you need more detail.

Postalco Wall Calendar

Another calendar for your consideration… and yes, we featured it last year, but you could probably use a reminder, right? Postalco’s wall calendar has the year laid out in a list format, making “elusive time visible,” as they say. There’s space next to each day to notate important events with extra room at the bottom for reminders, plans, or ideas.

Monthly Measure Perpetual Calendar

It’s back to work for most of us, and let’s ring in the new year by getting your calendar sorted. How about tracking the date with a perpetual calendar that’s also a metric ruler? Sebastian Bergne’s Monthly Measure fulfills both duties with its die-cast star and sawtooth-edged ruler. Placed at one centimeter intervals, the date can be marked by rolling the star along the edge.

Calendar Stationery Box

Perhaps this might be a little fussy for some of us, but for others, it’s a nice way to display the date while having a hidden compartment for smaller papers/mementos and such. It definitely has a mid century vibe to it (e.g. the designs of Charles and Ray Eames) which means it would fit in nicely with that sort of interior, or even better, place it in a kids’ room to help teach your little one about the calendar year. Hang it on a wall or place on a surface.

Units of Measure

Here’s a very different way to track the days of the year. The Units of Measure calendar illustrates all sorts of measurements each month, giving you an educational display each time you check a date. Expect to find traditional and less well-known units of measure like astronomical unit, decibel and aperture. Note: as this isn’t made for any specific year, it can be reused.
