Not wanting to make the post too picture heavy, I’m posting details of the inserts supplied with my Gigliodoro Divino here.

The dividers use both top and side tabs

At the back there are 3 plastic holders.  A side opening one with “Receipts” printed on (that contains some hole reinforcers and some small white tab stickers), a business card holder with space for 4 cards and another envelope type holder.  Right at the very back is a sheet of protective card.

I’ve been itching to add a Gillio organiser to my collection for a while.  Recently, Victor from Luxecadeautjes offered a nice discount to members of the Gillio group on Facebook.  I did resist for a few days but as you can guess, resistance is futile 😉   I really do have more Personal/Standard/Medium sized planners than I know what to do with and I do like working with the larger sized planner at my desk, and as this was A5 size, I decided to jump in.

It’s also a little different to most planners as it has a fold-over flap and a clasp as opposed to the usual popper stud or magnetic fastener.  It’s also lockable except that it has no key (I’m on a mission to find one).

Well packaged, it arrived in a box, in a green dustbag with Gigliodoro on the front..  There’s no calendar but it comes with a generous supply of inserts which I’ll go through in the photos further down the post.  Like most quality binders, it also has a leather flyleaf to protect the paper inserts.  Other contents include a transparent flyleaf, Today ruler/page marker and a large fold-out world map.

The cover is, of course, top quality leather.  It feels soft but it also feels very strong and it’s a gorgeous deep, rich brown.  There’s only 1 pen loop but as it’s at my desk I have plenty of pens to hand.    Inside front cover, there are 2 secretarial pockets, 3 card slots and one larger pocket below.  Stamped on this pocket is the Gigliodoro® logo and the model name “Divino” below that.  Inside the back cover there is one full height slot that’s around 3″/80mm wide.  This could be used for slotting in larger loose papers or even a tall, narrow notebook.  “Genuine Calf Leather Made in Italy” is stamped in small letters on the back cover.  Oh, and the ring mechanism and clasp are gold 🙂

This is the first time I’ve brought from Luxecadeautjes and I must say that Victor and  Eelke are efficient and very pleasant to deal with.  If ever I DO decide to add a medium Gillio to my collection…I know where I’ll be buying it from 😀

As you can see, there are a lot of inserts supplied.  I’ll show these in more detail in THIS next post

Finally, a wonderful and useful little freebie – a hole reinforcer and refills.
