Do You Have Your 2011 Calendar or Planner?

Calendar, April 2-11, quatre asperges

If you use an electronic calendar, you don't need to concern yourself with a new calendar as we go into a new year. But if you're a paper-calendar (or planner) person, take a look at some of these calendars!

This totally delightful calendar comes from English Muffin, a small design studio in Montreal. The English version is sold out, but you can still get the French version - and that might be more fun to have, anyway. [via Bloesem]

Another lovely option is the Typographic Calendar from Michelle of Kensington Design & Paperie. As she explains, this 12-month calendar "starts with the month that you order your calendar and includes the 11 months following that."

If you prefer a planner, Rag & Bone Bindery has some stunning ones. I had to include two pictures, so you could see one of the many covers, as well as the interior.

This 2011 planner comes from My Handbound Books; there are seven or so color options.

This amusing planner comes from Julie Joliat in Switzerland. The first printing sold out, but another printing should become available the first week in January. [via Swissmiss]

The wall decal calendars from Simple Shapes fill a different sort of calendar need.

And for something totally different, there's the adhesive-tape calendar!

Two other specialized planners are worth noting - although they aren't very eye-catching. If you're a David Allen devotee, you might want to look at the GTD Coordinator. And if you're into long-term planning, you can get a five-year datebook, as I learned from Mighty Goods.

The adhesive tape is really fun and might be a nice way to introduce kids to calendaring.
I really love the Rag & Bone layout - I'll be bookmarking this one for next year.
While working at Stanford, I got into the habit of buying academic year planners. So when mine ran out in August, I trawled the shops. To my surprise, I fell over an attractive one at a great price in Target. It's working really well, so far.

Love the variety you share here. The adhesive options could be really fun. For years I was a Franklin planner person, but I've gone electronic now. Tweeted.

The English Organizer, I've never written about academic calendars - I'll need to remember that next fall.

Stephanie, I'm an electronic person, too. But I get the fun of calendar shopping as a gift for specific someone at the holidays. Thanks for the tweet!
