A 2024 Calendar for Every Kind of Space
Choosing a 2024 calendar is much like picking out a new piece of wall art—you’ll want to opt for something you won’t tire of looking at, day in and day out. Luckily there are lots of design-y options on the market this time of year, from wood perpetual calendars (i.e. calendars you can reuse every year) to stylish flip clocks to full-size posters fit for the fridge. Ahead you’ll find 12 of our favorite calendars for charting out the new year.
Poketo’s best-selling poster-size wall calendar isn’t dated, so you can start using it any time. (And if you use a pencil, it’s technically reusable.) Each single-page month features a new graphic color designed to look good on its own or when displayed side-by-side.

Speaking of color, this calendar from designer and collector John Derian features a new vintage palette—in the form of watercolors, oils, swatches, and color wheels—each month. (And unlike several calendars on this list, this one does include federal holidays and observances.)

You can’t go wrong with a custom calendar or planner from England-based stationary brand Papier. The text on the front cover is customizable, with lots of fonts and styles to choose from. If you’re more of a planner person, we particularly like this limited-edition floral print.
Should you happen to be a fisherman or a mystic (or simply interested in moon phases), Schoolhouse’s best-selling lunar calendar is an excellent choice. It’s printed with vegetable-based inks on heavy 100% recycled paper.
Ideal for an avid bird-watcher, this bird-themed wall calendar features drawings from Inuit artist Kenojuak Ashevak. It’s currently on preorder, though should ship before the new year.

Much to modern delight, medieval and Renaissance artists just could not paint normal-looking dogs. This wall calendar features some of the greatest artistic failures of the time period, resulting in a surprisingly tasteful flip-book offering up a new ugly (yet dignified!) dog to covet each month.

Keep all of your weekday tasks organized with Zara Home’s classic-looking desk calendar. It can lie flat or upright thanks to its foldable cardboard stand.
Made from painted wood, this perpetual desk calendar is a smart addition to just about any desktop. It also functions as a pencil holder, which one reviewer reports holds more than expected: “48 total colored pencils” to be exact.
Threshold™ 2023 Desktop Calendar
Keep track of your important dates with this oversized weekly calendar, an Amazon-reviewer favorite. “It lays flat [and the] pages are thick with no bleed through,” one such reviewer writes, and it has “a generous 17 months, which is great for overlap with the next year.” Note that it only contains the days of the week, so you’ll have to write in the months, dates, and holiday observances (like Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day) yourself.

If you don’t need to see the big picture, a calendar flip-clock can help you keep track of your days (and the time). Available in black and orange, this one from heritage brand Twemco is inspired by graphic midcentury-modern design.
