Sure, you can use iCal to keep track of your appointments, but there are much more effective options if you’re looking for a way to remember important dates AND brighten your workspace at the same time.
We can’t get enough of these quirky wall calendars:
2018 Dudeoir Collection
You’ve heard of boudoir photos, and this is the same style of photography, except the subject of the images is a burly, bearded man. Each month he poses “sexily” for you in different situations. He leans against a tree in a forest, he works an axe, he smiles seductively as he works at an auto body shop. It’s hilarious, it’s irreverent, and you can’t help but smile when you see it hanging on your wall. Check it out here.
Hot Dudes Reading
You may have heard of the Instagram account (if you don’t follow it, you should) or seen the book, but now you can get the calendar version. Each month you’ll enjoy some serious eye candy as you check out a new handsome fellow paging through his favorite book. Hot AND smart? Sign us up!
We love our pups, but everyone knows that even the most well-behaved four-legged friends have been known to cause some destruction when you’re gone during the workday. This calendar is a collection of pet parents who have some fun “shaming” their dogs for their antics. Any pet owners will certainly appreciate it.
Nuns Having Fun
This calendar will make you chuckle as it shows nuns bowling, riding motorcycles, and singing karaoke. It’s whimsical and the photographs have a perfectly nostalgic feel to them.
Awkward Family Photos
Let’s just say that these images probably won’t be finding their way into a photo album displayed on the coffee table anytime soon. If you need a laugh (and maybe a cringe) then this calendar is for you. Have a look for yourself.
While these calendars won’t help make your work schedule any lighter or your vacation time last any longer, they’ll certainly help to brighten your day.
