Why Do We Still Need Wall Calendars?

Companies are already releasing new calendars for 2024. With back to school around the corner, you’ll also find 2023-2024 versions available. Plenty of us keep calendars on our phones and laptops, now, though. So, why do still need wall calendars?

Wall calendars still serve practical and personal purposes. While it’s great to have the ability to carry our calendars with us on-the-go, there’s plenty of advantages to still having a wall calendar at home or in our office.

Thanks to our partners at Workman Publishing, we’re sharing some of our favorite reason to purchase wall calendars – along with some previews of their exciting new calendars available!

Keeping schedules

Wall calendars are a convenient way to keep track of appointments, meetings, events, and other important dates. They provide a visual overview of the month, allowing you to plan and manage your time effectively.

In households with multiple members, a wall calendar can act as a central planner, helping family members coordinate their activities and commitments.

Calendars are also commonly used in offices, classrooms, and other shared spaces to schedule meetings, deadlines, and group events.

Why Do We Still Need Wall Calendars?

Home and office decor

Wall calendars often feature beautiful images, artwork, or themes that add aesthetic value to homes and workplaces. They can be both functional and decorative, enhancing the overall ambiance of a room.

They also offer you the opportunity to update your wall decor each year for a minimal cost. Rather than committing to a framed picture, a wall calendar can equally dress up your space for a fraction of the price.

Personal reminders

We use wall calendars to set reminders for birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and other significant dates. The visual display makes it easy to remember important occasions.

By having a visual representation of their schedules, you can plan your time efficiently, ensuring they allocate enough time to different tasks and responsibilities.

Goal setting and tracking

Calendars are useful tools for setting and monitoring personal or professional goals. Breaking down long-term goals into smaller milestones and marking progress on the calendar can be motivating.

Use your wall calendars to track your work out day, your money-saving goals, or even to record the books you read each week.

Wall calendars make thoughtful gifts for various occasions, such as birthdays, holidays, or as year-end presents. Personalized calendars with custom photos or themes can be especially meaningful.

If you are at a loss for a hostess gift, a calendar is a great idea for gifting. When you hand it over, tell them you appreciate the invite and enjoy sharing time with them, so you want to gift them a calendar to plan your future gatherings! Calendars are excellent teach appreciation gifts, too.

Celebrating hobbies and interests

Many wall calendars focus on specific themes or interests, such as nature, animals, sports, travel, or art. Fans of these subjects enjoy having a calendar that reflects their passions. As you can see from the photos, Workman Publishing has plenty of our Rural Mom interests covered with vegetables, herbs, plants and so much more!

Some wall calendars showcase historical events, cultural milestones, or artistic works, allowing you to learn more about different periods and cultures.

Minimal digital distractions

In a world dominated by digital devices, wall calendars provide a simple, tangible way to manage schedules without being distracted by apps or notifications.

Avoid the last minute rush!

Why are we talking about wall calendars in July? Shopping for them now ensures that you have access to a wide selection of calendars before they sell out or become less readily available closer to the end of the year. There’s always a rush at the end of the year when people scramble to get their new calendars. Ordering early will ensure you get the selection you want.
