Although this pad is referred to as a Weekly Planner pad due to its 52 sheets of paper, this planner pad is far more versatile than that! It is designed to be deliberately simple but also adaptable – I hate nothing more than a planner pad telling me to plan Monday-Sunday every time, even though that’s not what I need.
Sometimes you just need to do your planning with good old pencil and paper, but there’s absolutely no need to do it all on a plain and boring planner. This Paradise pattern might not be able to transport you to a warmer climate to do your planning in but the hand-drawn bird motifs, and the colour block design can add a pop of colour and some ‘flying’ energy to the task at hand without distracting you from the actual to-dos. This recycled paper planner will provide you with some structure but it is down to you how you want to use it that day or week, whether it’s for meal planning, keeping track of the family’s weekly activities or even for what jobs need doing in each room of the house. I’ve even used mine as a Kanban board with sticky tabs for managing a new project!
As with all my A4 and A5 pads it’s 100gsm recycled paper, so thicker than standard printer paper and good enough you can use a highlighter on it too. The UK based printer I use for these pads is actually a specialist in eco printing and for these uses vegetable oil based inks to minimise the environmental impact and gives the pads recycled board backing to keep it sturdy. This makes them a fully recyclable product. Not only that but it will arrive packaged in biodegradable cello wrap to keep it neat and it can then be put in the rubbish guilt-free in the knowledge it will degrade without harming the environment.
If you’re looking for a pretty yet practical gift, whether for a friend, colleague or even a secret santa gift, a decorative A4 desk pad like this one makes a really unique, thoughtful gift especially for that nature- and stationery-lover in your life.
