17 beautiful 2021 diaries to help you to look forward to the year ahead

There’s no denying that 2020 has been the year that none of us expected, and given the ongoing uncertainty we’ve all been facing, it’d be totally understandable if you were wondering whether investing in a 2021 diary is worth the hassle.

But as dedicated on-paper planners who can’t quite bring ourselves to make the switch to digital scheduling, we’re putting our faith in 2021 being better and brighter, and making plans (however small) to look forward to throughout it.
