PLAN + ACHIEVE

INSPIRATION. CREATIVITY. PRODUCTIVITY.

With the holidays right around the corner, you’re probably looking for gift ideas for the bullet journalist in your life (or yourself). Look no further, you’ve made it to the Bullet Journal Holiday Gift Guide.

 

Instead of scouring the net for hours (like me) check out the bullet journal kits I’ve put together, or check out the individual supplies.

 

I’ve included the best journals, art supplies, and more in this guide. Plus some of the most popular sales this holiday season can be found at the end of this post.

*Keep in mind these sales are for a limited time only (some codes and sales may be expired).

Alright, let’s get this party started with the bullet journal kits.

The three bullet journal kits include budget-friendly, beginner setup, and the pro kit. To purchase simply add each product to your Amazon cart, feel free to mix and match supplies from different kits and the other supplies I’ve included.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Journal: The Lemome Bullet journal was my first bullet journal EVER, and I still love it today. It offers quality, a fair price, and it still offers great features. Check out the full Lemome bullet journal review for more info.

Fineliners: These fineliners are a great option if you’re looking for something budget-friendly. Plus, they don’t sacrifice quality which is always a bonus!

Washi Tape: Washi Tape can get expensive! I’ve seen single rolls selling for $5-$7 before and let me tell you, I’m not doing that! I like the plain solid colors because you can do more with them and not have to worry about patterns not matching your bujo theme.

 

 

Pencil: I always recommend penciling out your bullet journal themes/outlines before going in with ink. This way you can change things you don’t like and fix mistakes easily! This is one of my favorite mechanical pencils!

Brush Pens: This set of brush pens comes with 2 styles a soft tip and a hard tip. Start with the hard tip for more control and smaller lettering and use the soft tip for larger lettering once you get the hang of things.

Markers: Add color to your bullet journal without spending a fortune! The 100 pack of Crayola Supertips are still one of my favorite bullet journal supplies!

 

 

 

Journal: I always recommend the Scribbles that Matter bullet journal for beginners (Pro or Iconic version). It offers thick paper plus a ton of helpful features like a pre-printed key, index page, and a pen test page. Plus you’ll find indiscrete markers on each page representing the center of the page and halfway points.

Fineliners: Experiment with color in your bullet journal using the Staedtler fineliner pens. These are easy to use and the price point is nice too. Check out the full Staedtler fineliner review to learn more.

Book: Learning to bullet journal or know someone who is? Why not start with the basics by learning the actual Bullet Journal Method by Ryder Carrol.

 

 

Lettering Tools: Beginners and pros alike can both use these brush lettering supplies. This kit includes two dual brush pens, a Calligraphy, pen, MONO twin permanent marker, MONO drawing pencil, plus a pamphlet with tips on getting started.

Hand Lettering Book: Learn to hand lettering with this book and bring your bullet journal to the next level. You don’t have to know anything about hand lettering or create over the top themes to bullet journal, it’s completely up to you.

Eraser: I use my eraser every day, and I can guess that any beginner will need one. This one is my personal favorite!

 

Journal: I’m recommending the Scribbles that Matter bullet journal to the Pros as well as the beginners. If you plan on using watercolors in your bullet journal, thick quality paper is a must. I also recommend bullet journals from Archer and Olive!

Fineliners: These fineliners are as smooth as butter! These are on the pricy side but some of my favorites.

Watercolors: Looking for a quality watercolor set that doesn’t break the bank? I LOVE these ones, and theirs a wide array of colors. If you run out of a certain color you can buy individual pans instead of repurchasing the whole thing.

Brush Pens: Tombow Dual brush pens are a staple in the bullet journal community. They work great, you can blend them, and they come in a TON of different colors.

Watercolor Pens:  Want to use watercolors without the mess? These are the way to go! The Kuretake Zig Clean Color Watercolor brush pens are so fun to use, however, there is a bit of a learning curve.

Pencil: This brass mechanical pencil was built with quality in mind. It’s sturdy, built with a guidance sleeve to prevent breakage, and gives a clear view of the page for ruler use.
