SkillShare is something I always put on my own gift wish list! I always find such useful classes and courses to take on the platform, and not having to pay for it myself is a great bonus!

If you are brand new to the Bullet Journal method, or have never been introduced to the creator of the system, I HIGHLY recommend getting this book!
Ryder goes in-depth into how to start your first journal, as well as his best tips and insights to truly benefit from the system.

Bullet Journal Essentials
Of course, we also have the essentials needed to Bullet Journal! These gifts are particularly great for anyone just getting starting with their journal, or someone who does not have a lot of supplies!
This section of the gift guide could be really long, so I have narrowed it down the top supplies that I know any Bullet Journal lover would adore!
There are so many different notebooks to choose from, and it can definitely get overwhelming! But there are two notebooks that I see constantly being recommended in the Bullet Journal community!
These are the notebooks that I personally use, and I love them!
The thick 160 gsm paper will ensure you don’t have issues with your pens bleeding through the paper.
They come in a variety of colours and options.
And they are made for people who love to Bullet Journal!
These notebooks are really beautiful, well made notebooks!
They too have 160 gsm paper that will ensure your pens and markers don’t bleed through the pages.
You also have a large variety of cover options, which look very elegant and sleek.
One thing that both of these notebooks also have in common is that you can get them in more than just one paper colour! You can also get notebooks with black paper, and Archer and Olive even have a colour paper option!
Honestly, you can’t go wrong with either of these notebook brands, and they definitely beat the budget options!
There are so many options for pens, and it can really depend on numerous factors:
- What type of paper is in their notebook?
- Do they do a lot of artwork and doodling in their journals?
- Do they do a lot of lettering?
I have created a list of some must-have Bullet Journal pens! Be sure to check that they don’t already have these pens, or if they are looking for something more specific!
Daily Writing & Planning
These are the top pen picks for daily writing and planning in a Bullet Journal!
Gel pens are so much fun to doodle with, and they are the best pens if you are using a notebook that has dark or coloured paper in it! These are my top pack picks:
There are so many different pens you can use for lettering, but some of the most popular in the Bullet Journal community include the Tombow Dual Brush Pens! They can be found in a wide variety of colours, but choose a pack with colours you think they might like!
Perfect for doodling, highlighting sections, or colour coding notes, highlighters can be really useful in a Bullet Journal!
The most popular highlighters in the Bullet Journal community are the Zebra Midliner Highlighters. They come in a variety of colours which is important!
A ruler will be really helpful for creating clean, simple layouts in a Bullet Journal. This metal ruler also includes stencil elements which could be really useful as well! Perfect for making checklists or sections within your layout!
Stencils allow you to create Bullet Journal layouts really quickly without compromising on the creative aspect of journaling!
If you want a lot of stencils that they can try out, I highly recommend this pack available on Amazon: 20 Piece Bullet Journal Plastic Stencils
However, if you already know you love stencils, consider getting some really good quality stencils with different layout and theme ideas. I personally love to shop for stencils on the Oops A Daisy website.
Check out this page on their website for a variety of A5 stencils!
Stamps are another great way to create and decorate a Bullet Journal layout! Take a look online for ‘planner stamps’.
Make A Journaling Basket
This is one of my favourite things to do, especially when I am hoping to help someone get started with their first journal!
Grab a basket, and fill it with your favourite supplies as well as some of your favourite items for creating a planning atmosphere. Below, I have included a list of some things I have put into these baskets in the past:
- Washi Tape
- Pencil Cases
- Lettering Practice Sheets
- Soft Socks
- Cocoa Mix or Coffee
- The Bullet Journal Book
With a basket, you can really put a personal touch on it! Get creative with what other items you might want to include in your basket!
Anyone who loves to Journal will love accessories and stationary!
This supply organization case would be perfect for anyone who likes to take their journal out with them, but doesn’t want to damage the journal or lose any supplies!
The case includes a pocket large enough to hold your A5 journal, as well as your stencils, stickers, pens, Washi-tape and more!
Get all of your washi tape organized for quick and easy access! These stackable holders will allow you to store and easily rip your Washi Tape.
Get all of your pens, highlighters and markers organized with a desktop pen organizer! There are so many different styles available on Amazon, so be sure to go and take a look.
Who doesn’t love something with a cute quote or unique saying!? Getting custom made gifts is such a wonderful idea. It shows a lot of thought and care from the person who chose it.
For my birthday, my sister got a water bottle made up for me, and down the side it reads ‘Bujo Life’ in a really pretty font! I love using that bottle whenever I am planning, and it reminds me that I am a part of a community that loves to plan and get organized.
There are so many different things you can customize.
- Mugs – Perfect for anyone who loves coffee or tea and Bullet Journaling.
- Wooden Cookbook Stand – I would put my Bullet Journal on here while meal prepping for the week.
- T-shirt – Find a cute planning quote and add it to a t-shirt.
- Desktop Accessory; like a candle.
- A sign to put above their desk with a cute quote!
The possibilities are endless! I recommend starting with Etsy and seeing what you can find! There are so many gems on Etsy, and you truly never know what you will find!
Recommended: If you need somewhere to start with this, check out this really cute mug on Etsy that reads ‘I need more pens!’
I hope that you found at least one idea in this post for a Bullet Journal related gift! If not, I have one more idea for you!
I know that gift cards do not make the most exciting gift, but it is nice knowing that they can get something they truly need and want! Here are some ideas of where you could get them;
- Michaels or Hobby Lobby
Anywhere there are stationary items will probably be a huge hit!
