Filofax inspiration #11: Kikki K Perforated Planner Review

It has been a while since my last Filofax Inspiration post, so today I’m sharing an unboxing and review of the new Kikki K Perforated Leather Planner in Ice Blue.

If you’re not a planner person, Kikki K is an Australian stationery brand and most of their planners are 6 ring binders. This means you can easily switch in and out from other planners such as Filofax.

KikkiK-Perforated-Planner-Review-Ice-Blue I had previously been using the Lilac and Gold Time Planner from Kikki K and after that, the Filofax Turquoise Domino Patent Organiser, both in A5 size.


Kikki K planners come packaged in decorative boxes delivered to the UK via Parcel Force. The courier delivery often means you are hit by a customs charge. I paid around £65 for the planner and then an additional £24 in customs fees. However, I do consider this good value as the planners are excellent quality and each one is handmade.


As the planner was purchased mid-year, it didn’t contain a specific calendar, but had plenty of tab stickers and plain dividers to customise with. In addition, generous amounts of to do paper and generic monthly calendars on a two page layout were included.


I think it probably could have had an 18 month calendar included, but I’ll switch in from my previous planner, so I am not too fussed.


In order to keep my planner clean in my satchel, I purchased a cotton gift bag to keep it in. The planner’s popper closure does make it difficult to fit the large A5 size planner in this, so I may use it for supplies or paper instead.


This planner is the first time I have tried a popper closure. I think I may prefer it over an elastic closure as they are difficult to keep clean and do loosen over time. One thing the planner was missing was a page divider/ruler, which I use daily.


Just to note, this post isn’t sponsored by Kikki K, I just really enjoy their products and have found all their planners to be great quality. You can have a look online using the hashtag #kikkikplannerlove to see what other people think of their planners.

I’ve also filmed a planner unboxing video on my YouTube channel so you can hear my detailed opinion if you are considering purchasing a planner. You can find the video here if you are unable to play the embedded version below.

All products in this post were purchased from the Kikki K website. I’ll be working on a planner set up video and blog post soon – I’ve made some pretty dividers and inserts to get myself organised!

Are you a planner geek like me?

  1. Hi,
    I’ve just bought this planner but really don’t like the thin pages inside. Just wondering what you use instead of Kikki K?

  2. Are the Kikki K inserts really that thin? I always hear everyone complaining about them. I just ordered one but I’ll need to order inserts and I like the “Cute” collection ones but now I’m not so sure…

    1. Hi Alyssa. I used them for all of 2015 and I wasn’t bothered by the quality. With Kikki K gel pens there is no ghosting, I also used Frixon Erasable pens too and it was fine. I think it would probably only be an issue if you wanted to use a fountain pen or Sharpie. I hope that helps!
