With 2018 on the horizon, it’s time to start thinking about your planner for the new year. The best way to get a running start on 2018 is to be prepared and organized. To help you achieve a seamless transition, we’ve put together a range of 2018 planners.

There’s an option for every personality and lifestyle, with a planner for the family orientated and one for the office minded. There’s even a planner for people who prefer a minimalist look, and even one for those who are just sick of it all.

1. Best Pocket-Sized Planner

This mini-sized planner is ideal for those who want to be able to quickly glance at their monthly plans. It’s available in both blue and white stripes or with cute cacti adorning the cover. Inside, some pages allow you to pick and fill in the dates that are important to you, which is useful for saving space when you are on vacation or over holidays.

2. Best Planner for Busy Moms

Built with moms (and dads) in mind, the Gold Dot’s weekly planner features plenty of space for each and every child. No one is forgotten.

The handy planner also has a pocket inside the cover to keep hold of your to-dos, shopping lists andmore. It understands that it’s easy to lose track of time, so it gives you 18 months to keep yourself on track.

3. Best Planner for Cynics

If you find yourself feeling sick with the amount of positivity and motivation around you and prefer to live in a more down-to-Earth, reality-filled world, this may just be the planner you’ve been searching for.

Sporting de-motivational proverbs, notable death reminders and space for pointless doodles, the Perpetual Disappointments Planner is made for all the wet blankets out there. It also takes an environmentally responsible approach by using paper from sustainable sources – although the planner is quick to point out the pointlessness of such an endeavor.

4. Best Planner for Chic Professionals

With a style to match every personality, Bloom Daily Planners have chic written all over them. At 6” x 8.25”, they are perfect for fitting into your handbag, and the sturdy, matte film covers provide durability and flexibility in one.

Each month has its own quick-turn tab, which is followed by a 2-page spread for that month and then a spacious week-per-page layout.

5. Best Planner for Minimalists

With simple yet well thought out pages, this minimalist planner is great for people who like to keep things clean and to the point. Forget any unnecessary decals and images.

If you need to bring order to what can sometimes be a hectic life, this planner is a great place to start. The pages of this Colorado-made planner are also sufficiently thick to hold even the inkiest of pens, which helps to prevent seepage and keep your planner looking clean.

6. Best Planner for Students

School can be a pretty stressful time if you don’t keep everything organized, which is why students need this planner. Not only does it understand how to speak the language of young people, it is full of motivational fun to keep them going through tough times.

The recipient of this planner will also get to enjoy the range of included stickers, and anytime they need to keep something between them and their friends, they can use the planner’s secret coding page.

This modern planner is surrounded by a beautiful, genuine leather cover to give it a vintage look. Whether you’re a college professor or heading out on a worldwide adventure, this planner is great for making your path organized, and it gives you enough space to keep notes as you go, too.

The vintage-inspired planner also features 2 card slots and a zipper pouch for keeping your important credit cards and bills safe. This little leather book is a great gift for men who love to keep their lives in order – or should start trying.
