Family Gift Guide: The Personal Planner Review and Giveway

US_logo_personligalmanackaseIf you are like me, you need a planner of some kind to keep track of appointments, birthdays, to do lists, and everything in between. These nifty Personal Planners are so cool, because you can make them as personal as you want to.

First, they come in 4 sizes, so you can choose the size that fits you best. Then, you can choose the photos for the front and back covers, the color of the page headers in side, add birthdays either manually or by syncing them with your Facebook account. You truly get a planner that is personal to YOU.

Don’t worry about them not being delivered for Christmas: You can purchase a gift code up until December 25th, and let the recipient design their own planner to be delivered after the big day.

Front Cover

Front Cover

You can personalize the front cover with two lines of text, and your own photograph. I used a picture I took at the Grand Canyon, but one of my friends used a picture of her kids. You can use any photo you want to make it uniquely yours.

Back Cover

Back Cover

You can also choose your own photo for the back cover. This is on Hwy 89A between Jacob Lake and Cliff Dwellers in Arizona.

Owner information page

Owner information page

Create your own message on the owners information page that is inside the front cover. There is room for your name, address, blog address, and phone number as well.

Calendar pages

Calendar pages

The calendar pages can be personalized in many ways. You can have lines or no lines; choose colors; choose to add weather information; to do lists; and much more. Add birthdays to the calendar by manually inputting a list or by syncing them from your Facebook account. Oh, and you can pick which month you want your planner to start with, so if you don’t get it until February, you won’t be wasting the month of January in the front of the planner.

BUY IT: These very useful personal planners retail from $24.95 to $34.95, and that includes free shipping in the United States. When I ordered mine, it arrived very quickly but the website says delivery will be 3 weeks after payment is received.

WIN IT: One reader will win one personal planner of their choice, any size. Use the Giveaway Tools entry form to enter the giveaway. Giveaway is open to residents of the United States and Canada.

    In my opinion: I would need that of an electronic planner after that of an event that arose which has decreased my memory. There are many, I am sure thousands, that deserve the chance to win a prize. But I would cheerish this like that of my last gift I ever received. The daily schedule I have has me on the go to appointments all around and about! This would be an adequate way of which I could ensure that I dont conflict one with another or even miss that of what would be very vital to my life and would be held in pride!
