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.
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!
