Filter control with customized date ranges

I'm creating a sales report with Data Studio but have this problem. Our business has several reporting periods during the fiscal year. These periods are nonstandard. They are not calendar months or weeks and they have a different length. A period can be for example from 1st of August to 9th of September. I would like the viewers to be able to choose which period they want to see in the report. The same problem I have with the fiscal year. It's not a calendar year. I would want the viewer to be able to choose which fiscal year they want to analyze but don't know how to do this. Asking the viewer to use the date range selector feels awkward.

 

Is there a way to create a filter control with predefined date ranges? Or any other ideas how to solve this need?
