Stay organised and keep your thoughts in one place with a stylish diary or planner. Perfect for jotting down everything from appointments and to-do lists to bucket-list goals, our curation of 2024 planners will help you flourish at home and work.

Below, we tell you how to select a diary that you’ll reach for daily, and share our favourite styles. Here’s to an organised life for 2024!

How do I choose the best diary or planner for my lifestyle? 

Choosing the perfect diary or planner requires careful consideration of your specific needs. Start by identifying what you primarily need it for — jotting down appointments, planning tasks, journaling, or a combination of these.

Then, consider the layout that suits your visual preference; daily, weekly, and monthly views all offer different benefits. Size matters too; if you’re on-the-go, a compact diary that fits into your handbag may be best, while a larger planner is ideal for desk use.

Also, look for added features like bookmark ribbons, pockets for loose papers, and even inspirational quotes. Lastly, choose a design and material that appeals to you — after all, you’re more likely to use a diary or planner that you love looking at.

Check out our top 2024 diaries and planners below and stay on track for the New Year.
