Amazing planner!

Right when you open the box you can feel the quality and the attention put into this amazing planner!

The satisfying texture and rich colour of the cover material, the thoughtful first pages and clever recap at the end are all great features of this notebook.

Currently using my daily planner also from H&O and I can't wait to try this weekly layout in the future!

All of H & O books and planners and so forth are exquisite. The priority flow planner is so nice, I haven't yet used it. I just pick it up and look at it from time to time, admiring the weight and texture of the paper. I will use it, though, I promise. When it's full I can buy another, after all.

Awesome planner!

I absolutely love this planner. It has everything I need for planning out my workdays. Just enough space for everything.


This perfect planner kept me organised, motivated and on top of things when life didn't go to plan.

I look forward to continuing to use Hemlock & Oak and I'm excited to see what you create next. The tough times were made better with your planners, thank you Tia and Team!

Really enjoying this planner

I love how it’s split into hourly sections with space below for notes/affirmations etc.
the overall high level planning pages are helpful for oversight of goals as well.

Amazing quality. Like a smaller planner but would definitely order notebooks and accessories

Perfect for a minimalist girly

This planner has become my new favourite item at work. I love the hourly layout so that I can really plan and display my days. I also love how much of the planner is left empty/open for customization so that I can really make it my own. I will definitely be buying one for next year!

I love love love this planner! The paper is nice and thick but also smooth. None of my favourite pens and highlighters bleed through. I like the layout and the ribbons are so silky! This is definitely my new go to! Simple, clean, but elegant and effective.

Love this daily planner

I absolutely love this planner. Love the simplicity and ease for planning and tracking each day. There is enough space to plan my day as well as a enough space to brain dump(journal) each day.

Using journal as a bullet journal. And I am in love with hall. It’s turning out.

My new favorite planner!

Simple and clean aesthetic with all the functionality that I need for a weekly planner. The thick paper can handle anything I throw at it with no bleeding. I would recommend this to anyone who needs a smaller sized notebook for daily use.

I love this planner!

I have been using the Hemlock & Oak Weekly planner for the past few months and I absolutely love it. It is a perfect mix of weekly, monthly, goal-setting, and bullet journaling. This is such a great planner for its wide range of uses.

Love it

I love it, but I wish that the month overview was next to the weekly layout.

One of the best recent purchases

I'l so happy with the quality, design and bunch of little details.
The beginning of the planner is great! I enjoyed retrospecting and redefining my values, as well as setting value-based goals and habits.
Plus the follow up structure with monthly planning and overview, with weekly breakdown is great!
It is my very sincere recommendation!
I wish lots of success and growth to your business!

I enjoy it’s minimalist aesthetic, it is visually stunning which makes me want to hold it and carry it around in public and on campus. I love it’s size and colour with gold outlines on the cover.

Passion Planner Convert

I have been using the Passion Planner (PP) for YEARS but I saw an ad for this planner on IG and immediately it piqued my interest. After humming and hawing on whether to stick with the tried and true or take a chance on H&O, I think the fact that I'm writing this review tells you I took a chance. And boy, am I ever glad I did! Absolutely stunning agenda! As someone who views my planner as not just a place for my thoughts, appointments and important information to live, but also as a memory keeper, I cannot overstate how beautiful this piece of stationary truly is. The quality of construction is impeccable. The cloth wrapped hardcover, the three ribbons, even the quality of the paper inside, is all perfect. Now onto the meat and potatoes; the inside of said planner. Everything that kept me a faithful PP user for years, is included in this planner; yearly & monthly reflections, monthly and weekly pages and ample blank pages at the back for my lists, etc.

For all my TLDR folks, here's the pros and "cons" list:
* I wouldn't say these are "cons" per se, it's more that these are features I previously loved in other planners that would bring me immense joy to see in a future H&O planner

- beautiful, minimalist design
- yearly & monthly review pages
- monthly & weekly planning pages
- blank pages at the end of the notebook
- sustainability initiatives taken by this company
- reasonably priced for a quality product
- Canadian company

- no pocket organizer in the back to hold receipts, stickers, etc.
- no elastic closure to keep the book from opening in my tote
- short task list, would love to see it at least extend to the bottom of the page

Overall, 10/10 will ABSOLUTELY be recommending to my friends, thanks H&O for creating such a great paper product! Keep up the great work!
