25 Great Diaries + Planners

by Grace Bonney

Inspired by Max’s Living In pick for today, I decided to go on the hunt for beautiful diaries and planners. Paper planners are starting to become more of my jam lately, as they’re more difficult to ignore than a tab on my browser I can easily close. I’ve been using a hot pink Rollbahn notebook as my daily to-do organizer, but I found dozens of great options that would be perfect if you prefer to check things off of a list, not click them on a screen. For diaries, I found a wide range of options, from shiny, crackly gold leather bound books to simple kraft paper notebooks that would be perfect for jotting down thoughts and ideas. I’ve narrowed this list down to my absolute favorites, but you can check out the full un-edited research list of 70 options right here on Pinterest. xo, grace
