There’s something about being able to see the whole year on blank pages and writing down long- and short-term goals by hand that a computer or phone to-do just can’t beat.

Luckily, we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to planners and datebooks.

Every year, our favorite food establishments and stationery brands release their own, and every year it’s just a matter of choosing which is perfect for our lifestyle.

Do you need something with no frills and no nonesense? Or something that will unleash your creativity?

To help you decide, here’s our INITIAL roundup of 2017 datebooks, planners, and journals! Be sure to check back here to see the rest as they come.
