CUTE OVERLOAD

They weren’t kidding when they said overload. Each month in the Cute Overload Picture-a-Day Calendar comes with – yep – a big picture of cute, accompanied by mini photos within the days, as well as reminders such as, “If you have 4 legs and can tuck yourself in, it’s cute.” You can say that again. ($12.99)

DOGMA

They don’t have many words, but dogs are often full of wisdom and feeling … not to mention a whole lot of adorable! The Dogma wall calendar gets it all in one shot, with photographer Ron Schmidt’s sweet pictures of pit bulls in swings and corgis in cars, along with truisms for your day-to-day. A little dogma goes a long way. ($13.99)

JOOJOO

So it isn’t exactly a wall calendar, but whatever Etsy seller joojoo’s giclée calendar lacks in size, it makes up for in cuteness. The 12 beautifully printed cards feature joojoo’s pen illustrations, including a cat in a coffee cup and a sleepy owl. You can even personalize with a gift message! ($30)

BIRD SONGS

Les Beletsky’s amazing Bird Songs calendar is full of lovely color illustrations of seabirds and woodland birds, and it has a special element – an audio player that features the birds’ calls. Additional bonus: There’s a fold-out bird poster, too. ($19.99)

YOGA DOGS

Paws up if you’re a dog-lover with a sense of humor! Photographer Dan Borris used the help of computer magic to get his pooches in position for Yoga Dogs.

Trust us, it’s all the squealy, maddeningly small cuteness, without any of the baggage. ($11.99)

Etsy seller sadlyharmless had us at knitting narwhals. And then she had to draw stargazing giraffes and gardening elephants? This gorgeously drawn calendar of creative creatures is done in black and white, but is definitely full of wonder. ($8.00)
