Although with its 52 sheets of paper this planner pad is referred to as a weekly planner, really it’s far more versatile than that! I have designed these pads to be deliberately simple but also adaptable – I hate nothing more than a planner pad telling me how to plan.
Originally this layout was intended as Family Meal-planner – 7 boxes on the left for meals across the week, and with a large section on the right for the corresponding shopping list. But since designing it I’ve also used it for business planning, family activities with a packing list, and content planning with content plans on the left and to-dos for photos/video/graphics on the right. So, in summary, you can use the structure to help you however you need it!
As with all my A4 and A5 pads it’s 100gsm recycled paper, so thicker than standard printer paper that’s usually only 70gsm, 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.
Looking to make a bigger gift set out of it? There’s a coordinating 200-page notebook too, a shopping list pad, and an A5 daily planner pad (which is just as versatile as this one).
