Hello Planning Mashers!
The holiday season is almost upon us, so it’s time to start preparing for it! With how popular the Bullet Journal system became lately, it’s very likely you’ll already have some friends using it by now. However, if you aren’t one yourself, it can be pretty hard to choose the correct present. I personally needed to create a list for my hubby, because he was completely clueless about all the pens and stencils I wanted him to get me.
I’m here to help you out and orient you in this magical world of stationery supplies. I’m sure any of these will be wonderful gifts for Bullet Journal lovers!

Finding the perfect present can be challenging, but believe me when I say that, for a Bullet Journal addict, there is no better present than stationery!
That’s why I’m here to help you find the best gift for your loved one.
A lot of those are on my personal list as well, so I’ll be sending this article to all my friends and family in hopes they get the hint 😉
The Bullet Journal Method
This book is a must-have to everyone interested in Bullet Journal, from beginners to long-time bullet journalists. The book goes in-depth about the system and how you can use it in the fullest to lead a more productive and intentional life.
It’s written by Ryder Carroll, the man who invented the system. So you know this will be the best guide to the Bullet Journal world you can get.
Tombow Dual Brush Pens
These brush pens are a must-have for any Bullet Journal addict. The quality is amazing and they have 108 available colors. You can never go wrong because any bullet journalist can tell you – you can never have too many colors!
The pens are available in small sets of 10 colors, but you can always go crazy and get a full 96 color set or 108 colors set. In last few years Tombow also released several new colored packs. So if you want to give something special – I’d recommend these.
Bookmarks are a useful tool for Bullet Journaling. You can use it to note the spread you’re currently on, or maybe just something important you’d want to go back to. Even if there are ribbons built in the notebook itself, there is no such thing as too many bookmarks.
Zebra Mildliner Highlighters
These highlighters are an absolute favorite among studygrams. They’re available in many colors and have two different tips that make them even more useful. Get a full set as a present and I’m sure you’ll make this person very, very happy.
Zebra Mildliner Brush Pens
These are pretty new in the stationery world and are a great companion to the highlighters if this series. They have the same (or at least very similar) colors as the highlighters but offer a brushed tin and a much thinner point tip.
I have a complete review since I just got my hands on these not so long ago. These will definitely be great for anyone, even if they aren’t that p[roficient in lettering yet.
Jayden’s Apple Stencils
I’m a huge fan of stencils, and these ones have been my favorites for a while! Jayden offers a wide variety of stencils, from lettering to drawing – these stencils can help you improve any aspect of bullet journaling.
There’s also a “Bullet Journal essentials” pack of stencils, which includes 3 stencils to help you create monthly spreads, habit trackers, circle trackers and different banners and drawings. This is truly a universal must-have tool for every Bullet Journal fan! These stencil also come in a very cute package. I actually bought this set for myself some time ago, and you can check a review video on my IGTV.
These stencils are made of stainless steel, which means they will last for a very long time, you can rely on that. Moreover, Jayden offers a gift message together with the package. Isn’t it just perfect?
Handmade Journal Cover
When I found this shop on Etsy, I knew I had to include it on this list. Cocoa Paper produces handmade leather covers for any type of journal. There is a wide variety of covers and you can order them in any size, which is perfect if your BuJo friend has a notebook like Nuuna, or any other nonstandard size journal.
I have this cover myself, and I can assure you it’s top quality, very pretty and extremely useful. You can choose between different designs, leather colors and inside fabric. There is also an option to emboss something on the cover, and of course, they send the gift message too.
If you want a personal, customized and a bit higher priced present, this is the perfect choice. Just remember these are hand made, so it’s going to take some time for Cocoa Paper to finish your cover. So make sure to order in advance.
This printer has been a favorite among the Bullet Journal community for a while. You can edit your images on your phone and print them out directly. Moreover the printing paper is actually sticky, so it’s possible to put it in the journal right away without using any extra adhesive.
Fujifilm Intax Mini
This Fujifilm camera is similar to Polaroid, it allows you to snap pictures and print them instantly. The small size of the printed picture makes it absolutely perfect for adding to Bullet Journal.
Get an Intax bundle to get everything a journal addict might need – camera, case, stickers, colored lenses filters and more! If you want to know more about this camera, Shelby from Little Coffee Fox has a detailed review on her blog.
This is a very cute accessory any Bullet Journal enthusiast will be happy to have. You can wrap it around your planner and always carry with you not just your pens, but also your phone and money.
This is one of the must-have accessories for anyone who always has their planner with them. That way all your important items are always in one place.
Staedtler Triplus Fineliners Set
Every bullet journalist needs a good set of colored pens as well, and Staedtler ones are absolutely amazing. They’re also available in many colors, which makes them even more attractive.
These pens have a 0.3 mm nib and are dry free (which I LOVE, because every time I think about pens getting dry when someone forgets to put the cap back on, my heart breaks). So you can rest assured that your present will be useful for a long time.
Kuretake Fudebiyori Metallic Brush Pens
Metallic brush pens aren’t a very common thing, but if you’re into adding that extra bit of shine to your Bullet Journal pages these are absolutely perfect! These brush pens aren’t that well known among the Bullet Journal community, so it’ll sure be a great little surprise.
Kuretake is a Japanese company and they produce many art supplies. I’m a big fan of their brand myself and I can assure you their quality is very good.
Kuretake Gansai Watercolors
Speaking of the Kuretake brand, I bring you their watercolor set as another possible present. Kuretake watercolors are top-rated on Amazon and offer a very original set of colors.
A great way to organize the pens is to simply put them in a pencil case. And not just any pencil case – a freakishly huge pencil case! This one is perfect for all the Bullet Journal addicts who usually have a lot of pens in their collection.
This pencil case can hold 202 colored pencils or 136 gel pen markers. It also has a stripe to carry around. They’re sold in 6 different colors, so I’m sure you’ll find one to your liking. Believe me anyone with a significant stationery collection will be absolutely thrilled to get such a useful tool to organize it all.
Bullet Journal Stamps
Stamps are great for Bullet Journaling. It helps to speed up the setups and even maybe make them much neater. A good set of stamps will be always welcome by any bullet journalist.
You can find different stamps on Amazon or Etsy. My personal favorite ones though are those from Ink By Jeng Etsy shop. They’re very well thought, created specifically for Bullet Journal and can cover any aspect of the setups. The gift message is also available.
Bullet Journal Fineliners
Everyone in the Bullet Journal community needs fineliner black pens. I would say these are the essential supplies for the Bullet Journal. The great part of this present is that no one can have too many fineliners. Since people use them so often, to have a few of the same size would be a good thing, and not a waste of a pen.
There’re several popular fineliners on the market. I’d suggest you to take a look at these three very popular brands – Sakura Pigma Micron, Faber Castell Pitt Artist and Tombow Mono Drawing Pen. Make sure you get a set with different tip sizes and it’ll become a universal present for any bullet journalist.
Bullet Journal Stickers
You can never have too many stickers. Stickers are a great tool to create common themes and generally easy to decorate the pages. They’re also available all over the place and are very easy to buy.
I personally prefer Etsy stickers, because they are usually very artistic and original. But Amazon also has a great selection of planner stickers. Moreover, you can always give a subscription to Pipsticks sticker box as a present – they send out a monthly box of high quality and a great variety of stickers.
