How to Create a Birthday Reminder Calendar

There can’t be a worse situation than the one when you forget about someone’s birthday. It certainly goes to the celebrant’s heart and makes you feel extremely uncomfortable. So are you still trying to figure out how to remember all the important birthday dates? However great and useful smart phones really are, some of us still need a visual reminder. A great alternative to digital planners is a printable calendar for a month or a year that will help you get back on track. Keep on reading to learn how to create a birthday reminder calendar and treat you dear ones to well-deserved gifts.

The calendars you can buy in regular stores don’t give many chances for customization. Probably you’ll be able to write a reminder in a blank box or put a sticky note to its surface, but these add-ons will look rather cheap. What’s more, retail planners lack a personal touch. With Photo Calendar Creator http://photo-calendar-software.com, you’ll easily make colorful calendar designs, and get enough flexibility to enter names and dates for specific birthdays.

This kind of a birthday reminder calendar can often be seen on my grandma’s fridge held with a magnet. She’s well into her eighties and not as good at remembering things as she used to be, but she still doesn’t want to miss the birthdays of her loved grandchildren (there’re six of us, by the way). If you also have no time for memory training, this planner will keep you informed about the coming family events. Since it has a simple structure, you won’t have troubles making a new one for the next month. The birthday dates can be added in the application or written after you’ve printed out the calendar.

Birthday Reminder Calendar for a Quarter

If you want to create a birthday calendar for several months at once, the best solution is to keep it simple. An exquisite design and plenty of images will make it hard to grasp important information. For example, this quarter template is highly efficient, but still preserves the festive nature thanks to the color scheme and themed background. Organized by months, it tracks birthdays and anniversaries during this time period. The planner can also be used as perpetual. You just need to remove the names of weekdays. If the year is not specified, your birthday calendar will never go out of date.
