Is there any greater joy than ticking off your daily to-do list, or circling days with exciting events in a diary? We don’t believe there is. While tracking plans and meetings on a Google calendar might seem like an easier alternative, a truly great diary can inspire and motivate much better than a screen ever could. This is where an always reliable handcrafted Smythson diary comes in.

Steeped in history, Frank Smythson opened the doors of his first store on London’s New Bond Street at number 133 in 1887. Its present-day flagship store is just next door, now at 131-132. For over 130 years, Smythson has been creating pieces that capture life’s unfolding narrative and its diary collection is no exception.

Putting pen to paper is a habit that can be highly rewarding; a cathartic, meditative process that can slow down the world and help us understand our place within it. For 2024, the British luxury leather and stationery brand has developed some bright ideas for its new diary collection. A symphony of colours, each design comes in a wide range of sizes and formats, with a collection of useful cultural dates inside to ensure you never miss an important holiday. Packed with Smythson’s signature pale blue Featherweight paper and handy ribbons to keep your place, the pages are edged with hand-painted gilding in gold or silver. You can also personalise the cover to reflect your personality with a variety of lettering and motif options.

Running from November 2023 to January 2025, you’ll have plenty of time to get started on organising throughout the seasons. Here’s our guide to the best 2024 Smythson diaries for the year ahead…
