Little Otsu Annual Planner

Here’s a perfect little weekly planner for the analog set. I like that it allows you to keep track of movies you’ve seen.

Besides our great weekly pages, we built in other sections to organize aspects of your life that don’t happen on a daily basis. There are easy reference pages for personal information, your important dates (like appointments, events, travel), special occasions, gifts, and entertainment interests (books, movies, music). We’ve also included mini reference calendars for 2007-2009, address book entries, and notes pages. We’ve even made a bookmark that doubles as a list of dates to remember so that your important days are always at hand. The (approximately) 5.5\” x 4.25\” book is perfect-bound and printed locally by a family-owned press with vegetable-based inks on 100% post-consumer recycled paper.

Gradient Journal

Journals are a great gift because they tell the recipient “Hey, you have something important to say. Write it down.” And you could just give someone a 99 cent spiral bound notebook but then it wouldn’t really be a gesture. And maybe just having a journal that is well designed and thought out would encourage someone to write. And this journal is a good example of a well designed one. The first page is pure white, and each page gets progressively redder until the last page which is very very red.

Paper in Various Shades of Red; Plastic Cover; 8.5″ x 5.75″

Birds & Branches Book

I love Mom and Pop shops because they usually have some of the more interesting items for sale. Papercloud hand makes each book and card using various techniques including sewing, printing, painting, & cutting.

“This handmade journal is covered in a off-white fabric with a printed pattern or branches, nests, and little birdies. The pages are blank, and the front and back are lined with a decorative bright green flecked paper.”

Skull &Crossbones Journal

I am amused by this particular journal, not only because it has a silk twill cover (with tonal diagonal stripes), but also because of who it’s sold by (you’ll have to click on the link to see). I think this would qualify as a good gift, don’t you?

“One hundred fourteen beautiful lined pages with embossed silver edges, a satin bookmark”

“Last pages include a perpetual calendar, international weather information, world time zones and weight and measure conversions.”
