Even though we all have calendars on our phones and computers, I like to have a cute calendar around to keep track of birthdays and other events (and what day it even is, since I work from home!). Here are my favourites for 2015.
I love Pom Pom Purin and all his friends. This wall calendar from Japan in a Box is full of adorable seasonal illustrations with loads of room for your notes.
The tiny Aranzi Aronzo store is a must visit if you’re ever in Tokyo and I always spend a fortune. Their online site is a bit clunky but they do ship worldwide. This year’s desk calendar features all the characters made from felt – so sweet.
Tofu Cute have some Rilakkuma desk calendars that are really colourful and come in three yummy flavours – chocolate cookie, gummi drop and fruits candy.
I bought Panda-san one of these My Zoetrope calendars last year and the 2015 version is just as cute, full of all-new animal illustrations.
And finally, Pusheen is so popular these days that her wall calendar is going for crazy prices, but Amazon have these cool poster calendars that would really cute up your workspace, and come with stickers too.
