With Christmas just around the corner, it is time to start thinking about what to get that special planner lover in your life.
The planner essentials
Let’s start with the planner essentials – gifts that every planner lover has, needs or wants!
Every year I buy a new planner, there are so many gorgeous design options out there!
One of my favourite stores to buy planners from is Kikki-K.
Their range is stunning and you can even customise many of their planners with monograms!
2. Washi Tape
Washi tape is a type of pretty decorative tape that many (if not all!) planner users utilise in their planners, one way or another.
There are thousands and thousands of designs to choose from.
Amazon has a lot of amazing bundle deals as well, so you can get them without breaking the bank!
3. Awesome pens
Pens are the number one addiction of most planner lovers. I have heaps of different pens – Zebra Mildliners, Microns, Tombow – I could go on!
A great set of pens is the perfect gift for anyone who is into planners. You can never have too many!
Ring-bound planners are fantastic, but maybe you sense that your planner lover wants to branch outside of their comfort zone.
My top recommendation for a pre-done organisation system would be an Erin Condren Life Planner.
These are fantastic for organising your best life without the hassle of trying to work out where to put everything.
Another amazing option is a Bullet Journal! These are brilliant for those who have a creative streak and love expressing their inner artist.
They may seem like a blank notebook, but the possibilities are endless.
Planners on the go need pens on the go!
A sturdy, cute and functional pencil case/holder can never go wrong as a gift choice!
If you are a planner lover yourself and don’t have one, what are you waiting for!?
These cute magnetic bookmarks can be used in a range of areas, not just planners.
For books, recipe place holders or even to separate your monthly bills.
One of my personal favourites is Fox & Cactus.
All of their stickers are hand-drawn by the very talented Emma & Tom, plus they have a huge range of other planner-related goodies!
For the desk
Help your special someone jazz up their desk with these beautiful and helpful gift ideas!
9. Planning mug
I came across this mug and just had to add it to my list!
“All I care about is my planner – and like 2 people”.

An inspirational quote is an underrated way to get the motivational moods going. Give the gift of motivation with a super cute motivational calendar!
These little beauties sit on the desktop so you don’t even need to struggle to see them – perfect!
Their colours are gorgeous and the reviews are great!
A must-have for everybody, not just planner lovers.
12. Vision Board
Okay, so this isn’t exactly a vision board, but it is a stylish way of doing one!
Vision boards allow you to compile your dreams and goals, and visualise them.
It is a great way to get motivated and stay on track.
Dream big in style.
13. Fairy Lights
Fairy lights extend far beyond the reach of planner lovers, they are a great gift idea for anyone!
They are great for setting a mellow, quiet mood and I’ve personally found them to have a great relaxation about them.
Planning under fairy lights, or simply reading a book, is such a beautiful way to spend some downtime.
These fairy lights even double as a place to hold precious photos. A-may-zing!
14. Pen holder
This one is obvious – a place on the desk to hold pens and pencils.
The best thing about this particular pen holder is that it comes in a range of gorgeous styles, that can be personalised with names, initials or even photos!
Perfect for a unique gift.
Thinking outside the box
Here we start to get a bit on the pricey side, but they are amazing ideas that help you step outside of the conventional way of thinking and let you really express your appreciation for someone close to you.
15. How-to books
Nothing beats the gift of learning.
There are some fantastic how-to books for planner lovers out there. Check out Pretty Simple Lettering: Modern Calligraphy & Hand Lettering for Beginners.
16. Fitness Tracker
You may be wondering where a fitness tracker comes into this.
Planner lovers are also huge lovers of lists and tracking!
What is better to track than a wonderful bit of technology that is designed for tracking!?
The right fitness tracker will allow them to track everything – their sleep, water intake, sleep. Because of this I highly recommend a FitBit!
I have a Fitbit Charge and couldn’t live without it, my sister has a Fitbit Versa.
These little technological beauties track everything a planner lover loves to track – sleep, exercise, heart rate, steps… the Versa even controls Spotify!
17. Subscriptions and Subscription boxes
This goes along with our previous gift idea – tracking goldmines!
Subscriptions to things such as Netflix are one awesome option.
Another one is a subscription box – take this subscription box from Chasing Planner Peace for example.
Every month they send out a box loaded with planner goodness!
Kindles are always a great place to get started when looking for an e-reader.
They are an Amazon product, which means that they are ready to go with the choice of thousands of ebooks.
I have an older kindle, that I got many years ago – and it is still running perfectly. So you know that they will last.
A printer? Say what!?
Yep – a printer! As a planner lover, I would be lost without mine! I make and sell my own printables, which means that I need to be able to print my printables!
Not just my own, but everyone else’s. Plus stickers, labels and dashboards.
Printers are almost essential for planner lovers.
Check out this portable printer! It’s brilliant.
And finally, number 20 – an iPad.
The digital age is well and truly upon us, and with that comes digital planners.
Yep – they are a thing and they are pretty great!
So if your planner lover is interested in the technological side of planners, then you can’t go past an iPad!
Alternative gift idea:
You guessed it – a cover for their iPad! Again, the options are nearly endless so you will not be lost for choice.
You can find them on Amazon, or head to Paper Concierge for a personalised iPad cover.
You’ll never be lost for a gift idea again!
Now that you have 20 amazing gift ideas, you will know exactly what to get that special planner lover in your life!
