Planner’s Guide: Planners For The Man In Your Life

Planner’s Guide: Planners For The Man In Your Life

As planners, we all know the value of writing things down when it comes to staying organized, keeping on track with goals and making plans for the future. But we may not see eye to eye with our partners when it comes to the value of putting pen to paper. So if you have ever wanted to convert the man in your life to the planner world (aka the dark side…just kidding), here are some tempting products and collections to help get the journey started. 


Each one of these planners provides a combination of neutral, minimal aesthetics with high function and versatility. Pick one up for Father’s Day or an upcoming birthday/anniversary. If all else fails, try the subtle approach (wink, wink) and share this article with him.
