Our monthly planners give you a condensed, quick form of planning, perfect for those with lighter daily schedules.

Gallery Leather Monthly Planners

Our Gallery Leather Planners are the classic planners we’re famous for. Each planner is bound in durable bonded or full grain leather with a sewn binding. The pages are a smooth ivory with a protective gold gilding. Each book includes a personal information section and an ivory ribbon bookmark.

Our monthly planners are excellent for those who want a condensed, month-at-a-time planning format. Perfect for those with lighter schedules, they’re great for tracking medical appointments, birthdays, and sports schedules.

Pocket Monthly Leather Planner

The Pocket Monthly Planner is our most compact design. Each planner covers 18 months, July to December, with two pages dedicated to each month. The planner contains 96 70-gsm pages and measures 6″ x 3.25″, making it slim enough to fit in a back pocket or small purse.

Because of the thin pages, we recommend pairing this planner with a ballpoint pen to prevent bleed-through. Our Funline Ballpoint Pens make a great companion to this planner.

The Pocket Monthly Leather Planner is available for 2025 in 18 colors as well as with US Air Force, US Space Force, and US Navy insignias.

Desk Monthly Leather Planners

For those who need more room to plan but still want a portable design small enough to fit in a purse, the Desk Monthly Planner is a great choice. Each month is given a full two-page spread, followed by four lined notebook pages, allowing note-taking and brief journaling.

The pages are a heavier 100gsm, allowing use of highlighters, felt-tip pens, and fountain pens. It’s available for 2025 in 14 colors as well as our US military options.

Large Monthly Leather Planners
