A good calendar and planner is something I’d be lost without, and Cape Town design outfit Clip Clop has a whole range to choose from. They sent over a couple, and frankly, I don’t know which one to choose!

The Family Calendar is a useful one, with spaces for every day where you can fill in the activities of every family member. Great for busy mums to keep track of everything.


Then, there’s a range of calendars to help you keep track of the moon, the Southern tides, and also a circular Seasons year planner. All of these would make great Christmas gifts, which is just what I’ll be doing (it’s marked on my planner already).
