Do you have so many Gcals that sometimes even your haircut appointment is camouflaged? Or, do you occasionally find yourself doing an early morning scroll through your calendar on your phone, only to drop said phone on you head? I've been there. Recently. Anyway—these planners will hurt a lot less.
Hobonichi Arts & Science Techo Diary: The English version of this Japanese favorite comes with a traditional datebook-style space as well as areas designed for daily note taking and sketching.
Julia Kostreva x Need Supply Golden Weekends Calendar: Less practical for scheduling events, but probably the most inspirational of the bunch, this calendar highlights weekends separately from Mon.-Fri. and includes illustrations inspired by California sunsets. So basically this one serves as a reminder to take weekend trips. See ya.
Oohlala Bonne Chance Planner: The starter planner. It doesn't include year-specific markings, so you can start using it now, put it down, and pick it back up whenever. Plus, it's really cute, and just $20.
Chelsey Dyer Letterpress Wall Calendar: Letterpress details make this a significant upgrade to whatever's currently hanging on your fridge.
Smythson Panama Diary: This is the classic. It's worth the sticker price just because getting one means you'll immediately want to schedule all dentist and doctor appointments for the coming year. No use having a blank book, right?
