Like you, I am dreaming of 2021 and all the new possibilities I hope it will bring. Nothing has inspired me more lately for new beginnings than shopping for a new planner or agenda. I upgraded and bought a Louis Vuitton agenda in 2019, so every year I buy new inserts. Youtube and Instagram have provided me so much inspiration. I have found that including affirmations, quotes, and stickers to be incredibly motivating. There are so many gorgeous and useful planners and agendas for 2021, it’s unbelievable!
If you’re an entrepreneur, small business owner, someone planning a wedding, a parent, a student, or someone looking to make healthier choices – there truly is a planner for you! I tell you one thing, as much fun as I have shopping for planners, agendas, and inserts, it can be rather overwhelming because there are so many to choose from! I truly love Day Designer planners, my Law of Attraction agenda, and that is just the beginning! If you’re searching for a new agenda or planner to ring in 2021, you’re in luck!
Today I’m excited to share 21 of the best 2021 planners and agendas to choose from for every woman. They’ll make great holiday gifts for yourself or a loved one looking for an uplifting new year. I also shared a few planner accessories I love. Happy holidays friends. I hope and pray you’re staying safe and healthy! Xoxoxo
Minimalistic 2021 Planners and Agendas
It’s no secret, the minimalistic trend is as popular as ever! I have fallen more and more in love with this modern/contemporary trend. This season I can’t get enough of this charcoal gray Appointed 2021 Year Task Planner. I love the cloth-wrapped hardcover and the monthly tabs. This coil-bound planner makes it very easy to stay organized! You have plenty of space for daily to-dos, priorities, tasks and notes.
If you’re a parent, student, or teacher (or anyone for that matter!) that likes checking off their to-do list, this Appointed 2021 Monthly Planner is for you. It has “monthly calendars, a yearly overview, and check-off boxes for priorities.”
There are so many great things to love about this Appointed 2021 Monthly Planner in charcoal gray. One of my favorite things is the conversion chart! It makes math easy when Alexa isn’t around to answer it for you (or me)! 😉
Not only is the Appointed 2021 Monthly Planner incredibly functional, but it’s in one of the hottest colors for 2021: dove gray!
I love the size of this black Wit & Delight 2021 planner! One of the many great things about it is the amount of space available for daily to-dos, affirmations, and gratitude!
This Ponderlily 2021 Weekly Planner is beyond fabulous! On the first of every month, you can plan relaxation, wellness, friends, and family (for example – birthdays, Zoom calls if we’re still quarantined throughout the year), finances, home, and budget. During the week, there’s space for daily to-dos, how you plan to recharge, and positive habits you’re implementing or plan on.
This soft gray faux leather planner with gold is everything! It has so many amazing details including a “yearly overview, holidays, contacts, States, Capitals & Time Zones, an inner pouch, 24 note ruled pages”, stickers and that’s just the beginning! It starts in January and ends on December 31, 2021.
Day Designer 2021 Planners and Agendas
I’m a firm believer in the St. Francis of Assisi quote “Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible” when it comes to working. This year I may not have shared as many new posts, but that was because I started updating old blog posts with new content! I credit my planner for keeping me organized and motivated during this difficult process. When I updated at least 25o posts over the last six months, I didn’t list them as a “to do” in my planner. I would write down the posts I fixed (in my planner) as soon as I completed them. It created momentum and helped me push through this tough process! In the end, I’m so happy I did it!
Years ago I fell in love with Day Designer planners and have been obsessed ever since. I love everything about them including the quotes; space for daily, weekly, and monthly to-dos; and storage pouch! Here are a few favorites in a variety of sizes.
It’s no secret abstract art is incredibly popular, especially for 2021! This season I can’t get enough of this Day Designer abstract art planner in the color “guacamole.”
You can’t go wrong with this mini Day Designer planner! Not only is the size great, but it is just as jam-packed with goodness as the larger size, and the cover is gorgeous.
I’m officially obsessed with light pink aka millennial pink, blush, so this Day Designer planner is right up my alley. It’s a great Target find and under $14!
Bright and Colorful Agendas and Planners for 2021!
Give me all the pretty floral prints and florals for 2021 and I’m a happy girl! I love when planners have everything you need to stay organized and in contact with friends and family! This Goldie floral planner has quite a bit of space for to-dos, your contacts, birthdays, goals, and anniversaries! PS: If stickers motivate you as much as they motivate me, you’ll be pleased to know this planner also includes two sticker pages.
My annual planner and agenda post is one of my favorites of the year! I never thought of myself as a planner until I started working for myself. Not only does my planner keep me organized, but it pumps me up so I can conquer my goals. One thing is for sure, I always feature a Lilly Pulitzer planner. They’re bright, colorful and so uplifting! I love that this one is undated in case you’re accustomed to using 17-month planners. You can start this one whenever you’d like!
As a huge fan of spring inspired ranunculus and pretty flowers, I’m officially obsessed with this budget-friendly floral print agenda! It has everything you need to stay organized and inspired. The best part is it is under $13! PS: You can actually save an additional 64% off this beauty for a limited time. Don’t miss out!
Is there anything prettier than a Rifle Paper Co. Wild Garden Planner? I love the bright and colorful flowers, strawberries, and butterflies on this navy blue backdrop/cover. It has space for weekly, daily, monthly to-dos/engagements, notes, and more. The best part is it is only $20!
How stunning is this turquoise and gold planner? It lists holidays, has space for contacts, and room for daily to-dos! It is super affordable at under $16 with free Amazon Prime shipping.

Sugar Paper LA has the most elegant planners for women of all ages! I can’t get enough of this Polka Dot Bound Planner in the color blue motif. It is so gorgeous and has plenty of space for goal setting and affirmations!
Every year I buy a new law of attraction planner, but this coming year I’m taking it a step further! I ordered a cork board today, tomorrow I have rose gold push pins being delivered and I’m making my 2021 vision board. When I created my first blog I started writing about how I wanted to be a journalist (I have a bachelor’s degree is in Mass Communications and I interned at two of the top TV stations in Northern California). At the time I started my blog I was a caregiver for my grandmother who had Alzheimer’s so moving to a small market to be a television reporter wasn’t something I was able to do at the time. I continued writing about my goal and dreaming about it, hoping that one day my dream would come true. Out of the blue, I received an email from a PR representative asking me if I wanted to interview celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch. I was in absolute disbelief! It truly was one of the best experiences of my life, and I knew this was something I was meant to do! From that point on, I’ve conducted hundreds if not thousands of interviews which I’ve featured on the blog and on Youtube! I truly believe in the power of writing down your aspirations, seeing them in your mind. Things may not work out exactly as planned, but believe me when I tell you they work out! Never in my wildest dreams could I ever have imagined getting the chance to interview celebrities and trusted experts, while taking care of the most important person to me, my beloved grandmother!
With that being said, I am very excited to start using my new law of attraction planner and creating a vision board! How about you? If you’re looking to put the law of attraction to work for you in the form of a planner, there are many to choose from on Amazon! I can’t wait to try this 90 day goal planner, and I’ve loved this law of attraction planner for years now!
Self Care Planners
2020 has been such a hard year for all of us. If there’s one thing we can agree on is how important it is to take care of ourselves. Self-care is an absolute must! I recently shared how growing pumpkins served as a form of self-care while grieving and working from home this summer. How have you dealt with the stress of 2020? If you’re anything like me and feel that writing things down on pen and paper, this ban.do Take Care planner is for you. It has advice for women on “nutrition, exercise, and body positivity. It also includes pages to help with goal planning, meal planning, activity logs, and more.” This will make a great gift for any woman in your life.
If there’s one thing that has helped immensely this year, it’s been journaling. Sometimes I write everything down on paper, other times I use the Notes app on my iPhone. Regardless of the tool I use, I feel infinitely better writing everything down. Writing down what’s currently bothering me helps me deal with and overcome issues I didn’t even know I had. I love that this ban.do How are you feeling? planner has the journal prompts to help you learn more about “intention, headspace, physical wellness, and nutrition. It also includes pages to help with daily planning, water, and supplement tracking, and more.” PS: ban.do has quite a few more planners in a variety of styles to improve your life and help with goal setting!
Planner Accessories You’ll Love
Grocery shopping can be fun yet overwhelming. I have been using my Walmart + membership to its full advantage lately! I love that my grocery items are delivered to my rural driveway the same day. It makes life so much simpler during these stressful times. Yesterday I placed a full order and totally forgot about a few items I needed, so I had to place another today. One thing is for sure, I am going to order these shopping planner tear-off sheets. There are 53 sheets that list grocery and household items. This will ensure that I don’t forget to order or purchase my necessities in person! The best part is it is currently on sale and less than $14!
I was so inspired by pro planners on social media that I decided to splurge on agenda inserts that have to be cut, hole punched, etc. Being organized is very important to me! I was so excited, I purchased quite a few agenda inserts on Sunday, pretty paper, a paper cutter, and a special hole punch, and couldn’t wait to get started. It didn’t go so well, and it was so time-consuming. I decided once and for all that some things just aren’t for me, even though it can be self depleting to not accomplish the goals I’ve set! Working on this project was taking me away from work! While I’m extremely impressed by people who have the patience and talent to create these amazing inserts and those who utilize them so well, I don’t have the patience. Last night I ordered these ready-made inserts on Amazon and I’m in love! They’re less than $10 with free shipping. I love the monthly tabs and the fact that it has ample space for goal setting. If you have an A5 size planner like my Louis Vuitton GM agenda I highly recommend these fully functional inserts. They’re perfect for work goals, school goals, your family, fitness, and more.
