Whether you are shopping for Father’s Day, a birthday, or just because – here are some great options for planner gifts for him.

There are so many benefits to planning on paper that benefit everyone:

  • writing things down keeps you organized
  • creating a roadmap helps you to achieve your goals
  • keeping a journal is a healthy mindset habit
  • a running to do list prevents important tasks from falling through the cracks
  • putting pen to paper helps you remember things

But planner options for men tend to be in short supply – and, in fact, can be somewhat boring.

And the list goes on.

So, if you are looking for something fun and functional to give your guy – take a look at the following list.

The Maalbok Weekly/Monthly Planner is a simple planner that has a 2 page per week spread, with horizontal spacing for Monday through Friday on the left side and a blank, lined, note page on the right.

This layout is very similar to that of the Hobonichi Techo Weeks planner – but it is in a larger 8×10 inch size.

It is one of my favorite layouts because you can list your appointments for the week on the left side and use the lined page on the right to keep track of your to do items and any notes.

You all know that I have been using Erin Condren Life Planners for many, many years – and cannot go without.

But the designs tend to be a tad bit feminine.

However, Erin Condren does offer a Focused line of Life Planners that is quite gender neutral. This line is sleek, simple and professional.

It comes in a dated coiled version and an undated softbound version.

And, an added touch is that you can personalize the cover with a monogram – which will give your gift that added touch.

If you haven’t visited Passion Planner lately, you are in for a nice surprise!

Passion Planner has always been a great way to outline your goals and break them down into a manageable action plan – but now there are even more options.

Of course, you still have the traditional monthly/weekly layout where you outline your goals for the month and then have an hourly spread for each week.

But now Passion Planner offers a new undated DAILY layout – and I think I might be in love. The two page per day layout gives you an hourly space to plan and reflect on your day as well as a blank dot grid page to jot down notes, ideas, doodles, or anything else that comes to mind.

And yet there is still more! Passion Planner also offers a digital version of both the monthly/weekly planner and the daily planner so you can use it on your tablet device if you prefer to go digital.

As always, depending on the style, the Passion Planner comes in 3 different sizes and a variety of cover choices.
