MILTON KEYNES CALENDAR 2013 is a monthly planner with plenty of space for those important dates and plenty more wonderful photos of MK and the surrounding areas.
There are famous views, hidden treasures and arty selections on the visual front, that might just challenge the way you see our new city.
Those behind the calendar are the same team behind the wonderful mini concrete cow range, which also make fetching stocking fillers, of course.

FELINE fans will adore the calendar produced by Susi Whittaker, artist in residence at Stani Gallery in Stony Stratford.
Her date checker tells the wonderful story of puddy-tats Colin and Clarissa who meet, fall in love and have a baby kitty-cat before the year is out.
If you like the calendar, you could go further and buy the book too.
GET IT: Stani Gallery in the High Street, Stony Stratford, obviously...
THE CHAMELEONS drama group put on performances of Calendar Girls last month, to raise much needed funds for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research.
The shows were a terrific success and all sold-out, but you can still get a piece of the action – buy purchasing a copy of their calendar!
The ladies and gents from the group adopted their best nudey poses to further swell the charity coffers.
