Heads up, guys. Whether you are gazing lovingly or staring dreadfully at the coming year, we want you to make the best of it. Benita Fernando picks seven indie calendars - cool, quirky and classic - that you should get or gift

RESOLVE

Set a date with 2018
12 Months, 12 Goals. This calendar is tried and tested, folks. Last year, Pranita Kocharekar decided she'd cultivate a habit every month, right from drinking plentiful amounts of water to wishing loved ones on their birthdays and anniversaries. Now, she wishes to pass on her habit-forming tips with those who buy her desk calendars. Each month, you get to focus on one good habit with gentle reminders in the form of super-cute illustrations. That's not a tall order, right? Besides, the calendar also gives you a full list of commemorative days and holidays in 2018. Not that we are looking to take a break from our new resolutions.

Alicia Souza is well-known for her fun doodles, which is why the first calendar to be shipped out from her label could be destined for your walls. The Happy Women calendar is a 12-piece spread of women in their happy element, with go-getter liners to make for a more motivated year. These are everyday women that remind you of the wonders that this half of the population is capable of. Makes for a great gift, too.

A serene limited series art calendar dedicated to the endangered wildlife species in India could be a poignant start to the new year. The calendar is a compilation of 12 black and white artworks by Smriti Choudhary, where each month reminds us of a species disappearing and being forgotten in our country. The minimalist theme of the calendar comes with a functional hand-crafted wooden frame.
