Find out which of these new planners is perfect for you next year!

We still have over a month to go until the new year, but we are already eager to plan our affairs for 2012 (think: buying tickets for promo flights for our summer trips, yes?). So, as early as now, you should decide what kind of planner you need next year and snag it ASAP, so you can start jotting down your plans, trips, birthdays, anniversaries, parties, and eventually appointments, meetings, deadlines, and more--as early as now.

Different brands have released special planners for our various purposes and tastes. For instance, your favorite coffee places Starbucks, Seattle's Best Coffee, and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf offer free planners and journals after completing a certain number of drink purchases, making your daily caffeine fix more rewarding. They also help you celebrate the season of giving by promoting generosity and donating portions of their profits to admirable children's causes.

Meanwhile, kikay girls will love the books offered by Beauty Bar and Belle de Jour, which are tailored to the needs of stylish and empowered women. Filed and Navi also offer very practical planners for both students and jetsetters who have jam-packed schedules to manage.

Still can't decide which one is for you? Launch the gallery to see and read about each of these 2012 planners we've mentioned and more!

    BDJ planner is perfect for me. super affordable in our age group, young professionals. I also like the whole look and feel, very feminine and everything is organized from expense tracker, to-do's, menstrual tracker, etc. Plus it's packed with amazing gift certificates/coupons from local partners. :)

    43. Oooh.. coffee moments are great for almost everyone of us who's always on the go and it makes it even greater and maybe even more convenient with a planner that goes well with the coffee and all those busy schedules just like the Starbucks planner, the Seattle's Best planner, or even the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf planner.
