Best Planners for 2017

Okay, you wonderful person. Everyone who knows me, knows that I’m a notebook addict. I love writing about notebooks, planners, diaries, stationery. I’ve written 35 things you can do with your Blank Notebook, 12 Things to write in your notebook if you’re a blogger and how I use my Ban Do Agenda.

Therefore, (after receiving tons of emails asking me what planners I recommend for 2017) I’ve created a list – the ultimate list of planners I feel are rocking it for NEXT YEAR! This post includes affiliate links, but I wouldn’t recommend anything that I don’t love.

Here they are!

1. Orange Circle Studio 2017 Planner

Okay, this little baby is so, so beautiful. Just take a look at that gorgeous cover! Eek! It comes with 300 stickers (for appointments and what not) and includes tear off lists for shopping. It is a daily and weekly planner that has a neat little quotation in every page. Buy it here for $14.99.

2. Rifle Paper Co 2017 Monthly Agenda

The one thing that always has me shopping for Rifle Paper Co products is the clean and attractive design. This is a spiral bound planner for anyone who loves everything to be systematic and wants to write a lot of To-Do’s. Seriously, each day has over 14 lines of space for daily To-Do’s and that’s something I really need! Buy it here for $33.

3. Lilly Pulitzer Tusk In Sun 2017 Planner

Vibrant, colorful and full of pinks, blues and greens perfectly describers Lilly Pulitzer’s Planners. Other than the monthly and weekly view, this delightful planner comes with an address page that will have all your contacts right in place! Plus, I may have a thing for little elephants.  Buy it here for $20.

4. Navy Floral Day Designer 2017 Planner

Ah, Day Designer! They’ve been making pretty planners for girls for quite some time now. This planner has a four page “How to use your planner” guide as well as a goal worksheet to list down your goals so that you can record and track your goals whenever you want to. It’s filled with floral elements throughout the pages, which I love, love, love.  Buy it here for $19.99.

5. Ban.Do 2017 Agenda

I love Products. I already have 2 notebooks. One planner and one simply ruled journal. And Ban.Do agendas come with a lot of illustrated designs and works in every month. It’s refreshing, fun and colorful! This planner comes with laminated color-coded month tabs and stickers. Who doesn’t love stickers? Buy it here for $29.66.

7. Faith Hope Love Inspirational 2017 Planner

I discovered this planner yesterday and loved it. The cover is made of supple, soft faux leather. If you’re looking for an inspirational planner, this one’s for you! It has two color pages with scripture. It includes Personal & Contact Information, standard measurement conversions and international dialing and time codes. How helpful! Buy it here for only $10.99.

8. Birds and Bees Blush Passion 2017 Planner

Gosh, I love the cover!

9. Bloom Daily 2017 Planner

I’m addicted to floral planners like these. They are feminine and creative! This planner features special icons on selective Holidays, inspirational quotes on each monthly View, end of month reflection questions, goal tracking tools & more! Buy it here for $17.95.


10. Gold Stripe Day Designer 2017 Planner

I know I mentioned another Day Designer planner already, but this one is so pretty, I couldn’t resist. This planner is for girls who love pairing anything with a little gold color. Inside, the pages are teal accented, which makes it all the more glorious. It’s simple and very tastefully designed. This planner has a four page “How to use your planner” guide as well as a goal worksheet to list down your goals so that you can record and track your goals whenever you want to.

    All of these planners look so fun!! I have a large Agenda (same cover as the one in this list!) and a Hello Forever x Studio Calico binder-style planner. I love both of them 😊 I like my Agenda for journaling & notes (there’s so much room to write!) and my Hello Forever Planner for decorating and planning out my week. I am totally a planner and notebook person!!

      Hello Haley,
      Eeeek! I have the same one! I just love BanDo. And Rifle. Totally agree. So much room to write! The Hello Forever Planner sounds super awesome! I cannot get enough of notebooks. I recently found one that was so festive, I had to get it for Christmas. It was like my own Christmas Gift to me. Ha ha. I have so many to write in currently that I’m using 3. I really need to make a schedule to write in each of them. *hi five for being a notebook/planner person*

    Your list is awesome, Angela! Thank you so much for sharing it.

    I love everything paper and I have such a passion for planners, I wish I could indulge and try each and everyone! Thanks to you I am discovering new ones I did not know and I will delight in studying their pros and cons!

      Hello Otir,
      Thank you so much! I’m so glad you loved the list. Paper is my life. I know we’ve reached the age where we should try and conserve trees and paper, but as an artist – it’s very difficult for me to gather my thoughts or draw rough sketches on any other medium. Each planner definitely has its pros and cons and I’ve made it my life’s work to find one that suits me best. 😀
      Still leaning towards Rifle Co.
      Warm regards,
