App developers can come up with the most user-friendly planners and task managers possible. They can fill them with tons of cool features and productive options, but at the end of the day, there will always be a special place in our hearts for hardcopy planners. There’s a particular type of peace of mind that comes when jotting down your thoughts on paper, or crossing off an errand or task you’ve completed. So, for those planner-addicts out there, we bring you the coolest places in Cairo to get your 2019 planner.


Daftar moved beyond just planners and are now operating as a full-blown stationery house. They have tons of gorgeous notebooks and planners, but for a more comprehensive package, you can buy their gift box.

You can get all of that for 170 EGP at Virgin Megastores and other bookshops, or get it from their Facebook page for 127 EGP excluding delivery fees.
