This is really easy to do and they are not that expensive. You can find these available at lots of online stores. Some calendars let you upload your own photos for each month too.
Balloon Gift Experience
Why not whisk your loved one away on a romantic hot air balloon ride?

Many packages include the traditional champagne toast and if you have the budget you can hire the balloon for just the two of you. A great idea if you're thinking of popping the question!
