They say the best gifts are the ones that people will actually use, and what better gift than one they’ll use all year long? I don’t know about you, but even with a smartphone, I still rely on a pen-and-paper agenda to organize my life. Not only are these Kate Spade planners compact and purse-friendly (durable), they’re also extremely chic and come in a variety of designs. You can purchase these online or in-store at Chapters/Indigo for around $30.00 each (they come in a larger size as well). You’ll also receive free shipping on any online order over $25.00. Hardcover with tabbed monthly sections, these agendas span from August 2014 to December 2015, allowing the “giftee” to start using them right away. Shown above (from left to right) are: “Gold Dots”, “Black Stripe”, “Bookshelf” (my favourite), and “Ikat”.
