For anyone who really adores stationery, starting the new year with a brand-new, really exquisite planner by your side is not just paramount, but absolutely necessary. Fortunately, the market is saturated with carefully thought options tailored to today’s crazy lifestyles.

It’s impossible to not be impressed by Appointed‘s Task Planners. If you’re not familiar with this American-made brand, its goal is to elevate the work experience with thoughtfully designed, practical and beautiful products. Really every detail is considered, as you can see below.

The Planners are bound in the company’s signature bookcloth in Charcoal Grey, Dove Gray, Oxford Blue or Chambray Blue. Each monthly tab is collated by hand and encased in a protective laminated clear mylar. $38 each — and you can really make these special by adding a $10 monogram.

Appointed’s weekly and daily planners are already sold out, so if these grab you, get yours sooner than later here. Order now and receive a free limited-edition wall calendar.

If bright color and pattern are more your speed, Blushing Confetti‘s crop of planners and agendas may be for you. This Australian range is one of many sensational finds I’ve stumbled across from the Land Down Under in the past few years.

Hand-painted illustrations and gold foil details set a dynamic tone — and thanks to customer requests, look for new features like quote pages, yearly and monthly budget trackers, yearly and monthly goal setting pages, along with staple pages for important dates, notes and contacts.

The more rectangular agendas are $35 AUD ($25.67 USD) , while the more squared-off planners are $54 AUD ($37 USD). If these grab you, make a dent in your shopping list by buying deep. Right now Blushing Confetti is running a promotion for two or more agendas, lunch bags, shoppers and/or cups to save 10% with the code BUNDLEUP. That’s a great way to offset the $20 international shipping.

Last up today for your planning pleasure I have lake + loft. Robyn has a released a cheery quartet of dream.plan.do planners to accompany you wherever you may wander.

The sizes have been streamlined for better portability — yet they still hold a roomy page size and layout inside. There’s also a slew of fun surprises: tear-out postcards to spread the paper love; a section for dreams, monthly goals and budgeting; fabric-covered pockets; even stickers.

Choose from four swoon-worthy themes: chambray, painted plaid, paint stripe and dreamy vacay!

That’s a lot of style packed into $36 a pop! If you’re interested in one of these, or any others for that matter, buy now! Styles are selling out quickly; in fact I was going to include a maker here who I had to pull since her entire planner stock is already gone. So don’t delay!
