Still dizzy after your New Year’s Eve party or already motivated to make the most of 2023? We believe it’s important to start the new year off right by setting ambitious goals. And whatever ideals you’ve set for 2023, be sure to write them down in a quality notebook, not on a piece of paper that will end up in the trash anyway. So take a look at the 5 notebooks we’ve selected. And yes, we’ve also taken paper quality into account, so every notebook on the list comes with ink-friendly paper.
Pineider Milano Leather Notebook Large
Available in 11 cool colors and covered in a soft Saffiano leather, the Pineider Milano notebook is our first recommendation for its elegant design and quality paper. Big enough to fill it with ideas but at the same time extremely versatile and easy to carry everywhere. For your pleasure only, there are 192 pages of elegant 80g ivory paper waiting to be filled with your resolutions.

Montblanc Notebook #146
Montblanc notebooks are already classics. Made in Italy, they are available in a variety of colours and are also made of Saffiano leather. The 192 watermarked pages and smaller size make this notebook a trustworthy companion, especially when travelling. What I like most about this notebook is the generous line spacing which allows you to go for a broader writing style.

Smythson Soho Notebook with Slide Closure in Mara
This one’s by far the most luxurious notebook in the list. Handcrafted in England from crocodile-embossed calf leather and containing 192 pages of Smythson’s signature gilt-edged, pale blue featherweight paper, you’ll find Smythson’s notebook great for planning the new year.

Aspinal of London is well known for its luxurious leather goods and accessories, but it also offers some stylish notebooks that might suit your taste.
