Holiday Gift Guide: Garfield 2019 Day-to-Day Calendar

Giving someone a simple calendar for Christmas might feel like a shallow gift at first, but there are so many different kinds of calendars out there, you can easily personalize it. There are calendars featuring sports, movies, television series, cartoon characters, superheros, animals, landscapes, and just about anything your heart can imagined.

Andrews McMeel Publishing releases a huge variety of wall and desk calendars each and every year, including the Garfield 2019 Day-to-Day Calendar ($14.99 USD; $18.99 CAD; $24.99 AUD; $26.99 NZD; €11.99 UK).

Created by Jim Davis, Garfield has been entertaining millions of fans since the fat cat first debuted in 1978. It's now the world's most syndicated comic strip and has spawned an slew of merchandise. From 1982 to 1991, the character starred in 12 animated specials. A popular Saturday morning cartoon series, Garfield & Friends, aired from 1988 to 1994. Two CGI/live-action films and three direct-to-video movies have been released, as well as a short-lived CGI animated series, The Garfield Show.

The Garfield 2019 Day-to-Day Calendar measures 6.2 x 1.6 x 5.2 inches and features 365 days of Garfield comic strips, which were original published in newspapers in 2015. Each daily comic is colorized with a "Garfield" log on the very top of the page and an image of Odie hugging Garfield in the lower right corner.

There's a "Daily Extra" on the back every page, featuring fun facts, world play of the day, jokes, quotes, trivia, puzzles, and other games.

All major holidays are listed on specific dates. All Jewish holidays begin at sundown the previous day.

The paper used to make the calendar came from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) approved sources.

Final Thoughts

I always love picking out the perfect calendars every year. Yes, that's plural! I get at least three wall calendars and one desk (day-to-day) calendar for myself. And that doesn't include the ones I buy for gifts.

I've been a big Garfield fan since I was a little bitty kid, so I was excited when Andrews McMeel Publishing sent me the Garfield 2019 Day-to Day Calendar to feature on this year's Holiday Gift Guide. It's a nicely put-together calendar with colorful day-to-day comic strops featuring the fat cat Garfield at his best. I love the added daily extras on the back of each page.

Overall, the Garfield 2019 Day-to Day Calendar would make an entertaining gift for just about anyone.
