So, here’s a list of 8 of our favorites…

Erin Condren Yearly Life Planner

Erin Condren is one of those designer/creatives who practically has a cult following. Goal-getters and Type-A planners (a.k.a all of us – HA!) will fall in love with her pretty pages, spiral-bound structure and customization options. This one is her standard 12-month Life Planner, but there’s plenty more where this one came from!

Day Designer Planner

Another great option for designing your day, your way. For the classic minimalist who wants to feel chic and put together, this is sure to be your new go-to. With pages for notes and checklists galore, it’s really got it all.

Moleskin Planner

If you take your coffee black and are just looking to go a step above the no-fuss bullet journal, then this might be just what you’re looking for. With it’s signature hardcover and slim shape, a Moleskin is practically indestructible. It’s small size and lighter weight makes it great if you’re constantly on the go and carry your planner with you everywhere. Oh, and did we mention it comes with stickers? They’re mature stickers, ok?

Create 365

This planner screams fun and literally greets the day with its “Hello Life” cover. Finally, you don’t have to compromise creativity for organization. Each page is artfully designed with bright colors, with plenty of room for goals and never forgetting someone’s birthday.

Lily Pulitzer Planner

If you’ve always jumped at the opportunity to rock the Lily Pulitzer signature pink, then this planner is sure to fit your style. Pretty enough to feel playful, well-structured enough to show you still mean business. Also worth mentioning – it comes with two pages of stickers! We love the gold coil and closure feature as well.

Kate Spade Planner

True to Kate Spade’s understated elegance, this planner makes a beautiful return to the classic black & white. Plan away from now until December 2017 on the plenty of blank note pages. Stash important paper items in its convenient back pocket and bonus: it’s spiral binding is protected by a hardcover, so no more snagging in your bag!

Passion Planner

We actually did a previous post with a full passion planner review. Founder and designer, Angelia Trinidad, suffered from depression after graduating college and wanted to help others in the same situation. Meaning, this planner goes way beyond the “set it and forget” method. It actually challenges you to break your goals and tasks down into actionable steps, that ultimately bring you more satisfaction and happiness along the way.

Productivity Planner

This is another planner that’s no stranger to Productivity and Pretty. And, like the passion planner, we did a productivity planner review just recently! The best part about it is how it forces you to prioritize; ranking tasks by level of importance. It provides structure so you can plan ahead; helping you to know what you’re doing and when. That way you don’t waste those precious morning hours trying to sort it all out. For those of you that love reflection – well, it’s got a place for that, too!

Planning, dreaming, goal-setting and that jazz can be really personal, and we totally get that! It’s worth finding the one that’s right for you – the one that you want to start your day with and makes your life easier, not harder.
