Bring Back Paper Give-Aways Reviews

Win a Hobonichi Planner

The lovely folk over at Pocket Notebooks are offering one of my lucky readers the chance to win an A6 Hobonichi Techo Planner, and I am bursting to share more about it and get this competition under way so that the winner will have it in plenty of time to get organised for the new year.

Here it is, the planner from Japan with something of a cult following…

Hobonichi Techo Planner

This is A6 so its nice and lightweight and comfortable to carry around with you. It has lay-flat binding making it easy to open and work on.

Inside, at the bottom of each double page spread, are quotes for you to ruminate on and enjoy daily. The pages are made from Tomoe river paper, which feels smooth and thin in your hands, a bit like tracing paper only thicker, and so beautiful to write on.

There are month to view pages….

Then there are page a days…

Page a day inside a Hobonichi Techo Planner

A full page for each day, broken into segments if you choose to do so, only by the ’12’ and cutlery icons on the left. I like them, as they give me a feeling of structure, without being confined by them. Hobonichi’s are made for planning, doodling, thinking, journaling, drawing, scrapbooking, whatever suits you best.

At the back are several pages for notes and doodles, along with some general useful information such as holidays, size guides and so forth. There are are also a few pages about Japan which I enjoyed reading.

The verdict? I am in love. Officially in love. With the Hobonichi.

I’m looking forward to using it. I already know that I’m going to be stalking Hobonichi fan sites and IG accounts whilst I prepare to use mine. I feel like I’ve become somehow more stylish and current just by owning one!

Looking for more inspiration on how you’d use it? Here are a few handy Hobonichi posts that I found to give you more ideas:

A whole Hobonichi Love site, sharing stacks of images and ideas.

It’s designed to be versatile, allowing you to be as creative as you want with it, as you can see here.

And I love this Instagram image of a Hobonichi in action.

As I said, I do now have a Hobonichi Techo Planner to give away to one of my readers. To be in with a chance, enter using the rafflecopter below. The competition ends at 12am 10th December 2015, open to UK entrants only. Good luck!

Disclosure: I received the Hobonichi FOC for the purposes of this post, but all effusiveness remains my own
