5. Dodo Pad
The Dodo Pad's been going strong for 48 years and describes itself as a "memo-doodle-engagement-weekly-planner-diary-organiser-message-ment book". What that means is it's a handy spiral-bound weekly planner and diary with quirky illustrations, eccentric and inspiring quotes from history and lots of space to doodle. It comes in pocket, desk or wall size. Students might find the Acad-Pad version useful, too.
