Woody Allen once said that "eighty percent of success is about showing up." In which case it’s essential to have an orga­nized, appealing way to keep track of your appointments. While electronic devices are great, they don’t afford room for the snippets of paper picked up along the way, nor do they look nearly as vibrant and stylish as these calendars.

TOD’S added a wraparound elastic that not only adds a dash of color to camel-colored calfskin but also keeps receipts tucked inside. $345; tods.com

SMYTHSON had four designers craft a limited-edition palm-size softbound agenda; this colorful Missoni version is our favorite. $405; smythson.com

LOUIS VUITTON adds to its signature agenda the limited-edition Monogram Groom image, which happily calls Tintini to mind. $265; louisvuitton.com

HERMES is famous for its orange but this time lime green—one of eight hues (including the orange) available—is a discreet laternative. $940; hermes.com

ANYA HINDMARCH veers away from its traditional aesthetic with a surprisingly soft cracked-silver leather take on the planner. $325; anyahindmarch.com

MRS. JOHN L. STRONG offers something for those who merely want to check the date: a tiny easel with 12 hand-engraved cards. $98; mrsstrong.com
