Printable Desk Calendar (Inexpensive Gift Idea)

By Kate Riley November 5, 2018

With the holiday rush, there’s so much pressure to get a little something for everyone on your list. Today I’m sharing an inexpensive gift idea to give to your friends or teachers or coworkers. Or keep one for yourself! And it costs less than $5 !

I made two versions of these free printable 2019 desk calendars, perfect for anyone who works at a computer. They look so cute on a desktop sitting on an easel!



I created two versions of this free printable calendar, one in black + white and one in color:





When you print them you’ll notice I added a faint perforated line so they can be evenly cut in the same size.









The PDF printable calendars are available to download for free in both watercolor waves ….




…. and a black and white version.

To give as a gift, print them out (I recommend cardstock not regular printer paper) and combine the calendar in a small gift bag with a mini easel for display. I found both the mini white and acrylic easel and the black easel at Michael’s craft store where they sell easels large and small, they are both less than $5. :)

By the way the DIY resin top desk is totally amazing and holding up beautifully, I’m still so pleased with how it turned out!!

More holiday gift ideas coming soon!


  1. Thank you so much!!!! My oldest son has literally 7 teachers and I want to give a little something to each of them. This will be a perfect gift several times over. Please keep them coming!

  2. Thank you SO much for these! Just perfect for my computer desk. I always spent countless time trying to find just the right size and look for yearly calendars – and here you are just in time! Wonderful!
    Thanks you again!

  3. Thank you so much for sharing this with your readers! This is a wonderful gift idea! Can’t wait to try it out this Christmas season!

  4. These are beautiful, Kate! Thank you!
    I give calendars like this every year as gifts to coworkers and friends. I typically buy a pdf on Etsy. You have done two things that I wish everyone would do – you printed 4 to a page, so there is not a lot of wasted paper, and you made the numbers for the dates large enough that you can see them from several feet away. They are just perfect!

  5. are these each 5 1/2 x 4 ish? trying to figure out the size so I can pick up easels while I’m out. thank you!

  6. Thanks for this, Kate. I sent the link to a FedEx Office store to print out for me on cardstock, and the clerk said she loved it. She was happy to hear she was free to print out one for herself too! It looks so pretty on my desk with a Lucite easel I found at The Container Store.

  7. This is such a great design– thank you for creating these files, and making them free downloads. I can’t wait to print them for my office! I appreciate your art!

  8. Thank you so much! These are beautiful and will mahe great gifts for the family :)
