2015 Planners to Usher in the New Year

The pages of these planners are waiting to be filled with new plans for the coming year!


If you’re one of those who find falling in line at coffee shops just to get their fill of caffeine and stamps stressful (not to mention time-consuming), then these no-run-of-the-mill planners and calendars are for you.

Photos from the websites and Facebook pages of each.

The Daykeeper

Photographer Katt San Juan (whose home we featured in our December 2013/January 2014 issue) collated her travel photos and came up with a beautiful datebook that cheers you on to pursue your dreams and cherish the mundane.

Filled with inspiring quotes and verses, The Daykeeper is not just for your usual to-do list; it’s also a journal for keeping notes of little things that make you happy. And while this planner is already out of stock (that’s how sought-after it is!), The Daykeeper is already working on new products for next year! Follow The Daykeeper on Instagram (@thedaykeeper) for updates.
