The Classics

The Starbucks Planner is a tried and true veteran in the planner world. Each year, it comes back with upgrades to make it more efficient and enjoyable to use. And this time around, the Starbucks 2017 Planner is more elegant and sophisticated than ever, with two designs to choose from: The coffee stains and blue siren. The planner also comes with stickers, an erasable pen, a magnetic bookmark, a cloth pouch that matches the design of your choice, and of course, coupons.

Customers who want to get their hands on a copy should collect 18 stickers–9 of their featured holiday drinks and 9 drinks of their choice.


Paulo Coelho is an artist and author who’s created a ton of good books, but this one takes the cake. In addition to the usual scheduling and to-do list components, Friendship Day Planner 2017 also contains the same wisdom that draws readers to his books that can serve as a source of daily inspiration year round.

Begin each day with an inspiring quote from some of Coelho’s most celebrated works as you plan your daily tasks, travels, and personal journeys. Plus, Catalina Estrada's rich and vibrant illustrations adorn the pages of the planner reminiscent of her native Colombia, so it’s really perfect for the visually and artistically inclined.
