Best Doodling Supplies
You don’t need much to get started on doodling, but if you’re looking for some recommendations, here are my favorites:
- A piece of paper to doodle on. For me, the best is to use a notebook or a notepad.
- A pen and I’d recommend using fineliners. These are my favorites these days.
- Colored markers. But only if you want to add color to your doodles. The list of these is endless, but my favorite are these highlighters, and I almost exclusively use them for all my doodles. I also always recommend these Crayola markers, because they come in so many colors and are super affordable.

With that out of the way, let’s get into doodling books.
