Spike your generosity with wisdom this year, and give them a gift that will benefit you as well: An awesome planner! They’ll thank you ten times for your gift’s practical features and great design. You, on the other hand, will pat yourself in the back as you and your busy friends get to push through with more plans.
Here are 8 of the best 2016 planners that both the giver and the recipient will love!
Getting the Starbucks planner has become a tradition for many coffee-lovers. The feeling of being one of the first few people finally with the coveted coffee-themed planner is awesome, and the struggle of collecting stickers makes the feeling all the more amazing.
