While it seems like the world is becoming more digital, many people still prefer living in an analogue world. And while some may like to have their calendar or planner live on their device, people still love paper calendars. In fact, paper planners and calendars can help people clear their thoughts, clarify priorities and reframe goals in a way digital planners can’t. Many people also prefer paper to help reduce digital overload. This makes promotional calendar giveaways great corporate gifts for clients or anyone else on your list.
