Calendar Reminders

An online calendar reminder is the perfect way to track important dates. In addition to helpful text articles and visual suggestions, the Web can provide tools to remind you of important events with calendar reminders for birthdays and anniversaries. You’ll also find sites that can help you keep track of the gifts you've already given and to whom.

Insights for Calendar Reminders

  • Sometimes you can find gift-related tools in unexpected places. For example, the genealogical Web site Geni will send you calendar reminders for the birthdays of the members that you list in your online family tree.
