For example…

  • Some of us just need diaries with lots of room for fitting in dates, multiple appointments and reminders. 
  • Maybe you know someone who just needs lots of notebook space for meetings? Busy creatives may like A4 diary – notebook combos with one page for appointments and another for notes, minutes and ideas.
