New year, new diary. Here’s our edit of the prettiest 2019 planners out there.
Just like opening a fresh notebook at the start of a new school term, getting a brand-spanking-new diary for the next year fills us with excitement for all of the possibilities that lie ahead.
Each clean page is the chance to make an amazing plan, visit somewhere new or book into an empowering course, making the coming year even better than the last.
But for maximum productivity, we reckon a diary that is as pretty as possible is essential. Being such huge stationery fans, we’re always on the hunt for unbelievably beautiful paper goods, and in this round-up of the most stylish 2019 diaries and planners we’ve picked the crème de la crème from both independent brands and well-known crowd pleasers.
Do we even need to explain our love for this one? We think not. Just looking at this blessing of unicorns (that’s the official name for a group of those mythical beings, don’t you know) brings us joy.
Frankie Diary 2019
This Aussie magazine and store creates a new pastelly-perfect diary every year, filled with spaces to scribble ideas, a pocket for momentos and cute extras like gift tags and stickers. There are monthly overviews at the beginning, with the main sections being broken down by week over a double page spread.
This empowering MiGoals diary is split into three sections so you can write out your goals, plan out your week and budget your life with an extra bonus section for note taking, doodling or brainstorming. 2019, we’re coming for you.
