Get Organized With Hemlock & Oak (Win!)

October 24, 2021

Is it just us or has this year flown by? Maybe it’s because we’re starting to jet-set and see our loved ones again after nearly a year of having an empty social calendar, but we’ve been finding ourselves more disorganized and in need of some serious help juggling our schedule. Luckily, local Vancouver brand Hemlock & Oak can help get you set to take on all of your adventures.

Designed for mindful planning, Hemlock & Oak combines both structure and flexibility inspired by Japanese stationery. The lightly dotted grid design helps you stay organized without limitations while the large pages provide ample room for all of your important notes and appointments. Details are plentiful in this thoughtfully designed agenda that comes with three ribbons to mark your place, while a flat binding allows the planner to sit open with ease—perfect for right and left-handers alike!

Not much of a social butterfly? Recognizing that your planner isn’t just a place for your to-do list to live but also an extension of your mindset, Hemlock & Oak planners also feature a section for you to highlight your goals, self-reflect and monthly overview. There is even a media directory to keep track of your fave books, TV shows and films and a wish/bucket list section.

Not sold yet? Besides getting you organized, each planner is designed and made in Canada with environmentally sound materials (the high-quality paper is made with 10 per cent post-consumer waste content) with a hardcover to provide extra durability and a chic look that suits any desk! Ours is eagerly awaiting the new year for daily use, but in the meantime, we are scratching in our stationery itch by writing in our special dates to remember and new events to look forward to in the new year. —Vicki Duong

    I can hardly wait to have a big family reunion again! Barbecue and frolicking in the pool. Hugs and creating memories. Kids giggling, parents parenting and siblings just enjoying every moment.
