Along with all my Christmas planning I am also getting ready for the New Year. I love buying new stationery and Planners so was delighted to be offered the Stigu Planner 2017 version to review. I reviewed the first edition of the Stigu Planner this time last year and it has been a really good planner for me. I love making lists and seeing everything clearly laid out, the Stigu Planner allows me to do this.
As you can see the cover has had a much-needed makeover. There are now more versions to choose from, ranging from the turquoise spiral-bound, multicolour spiral-bound and faux leather hardcover planner.
The Stigu Planner 2017 is lots of things: a planner, a calendar, a notebook, a to-do pad and a rest and zest handbook. Each page shows one week with 5 squares per day, this is plenty of space to write. Last year I used mine to plan blog posts, plan meals and keep a note of after school clubs and activities. The left side is kept blank for you to write notes.
It has lots of great features. I love the fact it’s spiral bound and the 2017 version still has the handy perforated edge so you can immediately find the current week.
Each page is different, look at the cute hearts for Valentine’s Day!
The little character ‘Stigu’ can be found throughout the planner. Each month he introduces a new theme and every week he shares tips and inspiration, as well as easy to stick to practices. You don’t have to do these but I find them quite helpful, they include tips of remembering to drink water, recipe ideas and small activities to try out. Quotations are also found through the planner, my favourite is this one from David Bowie:
It’s a fun, easy to use Planner which is a little different to others on the market. You can find out more on the Stigu site.
