Why Holiday Bullet Journal
Isn’t it just exhilarating when the holiday season sweeps in with its merry cheer and festive spirit? I can already feel the excitement bubbling up inside me, ready to spill over onto the pages of my Bullet Journal.
It’s like my journal is an extension of all this holiday magic, capturing and holding onto the joy and warmth of the season.
Bullet Journaling, as many of you might agree, is so much more than just a tool for organization—it’s a creative outlet, a space where our thoughts, goals, and inspirations come alive.
It’s where we make sense of our bustling lives, one bulleted list at a time. A place where our everyday tasks mingle with our wildest dreams, all documented in a way that’s uniquely us.
If as the first signs of winter start to show, you find yourself feeling unusually gloomy, holiday Bullet Journal spreads might be exactly what you need. Pick up your Bullet Journal and start sketching out a holiday-themed spread.
As you fill the pages with doodles of snowflakes, Christmas trees, and cozy fireplaces, you’ll feel this wave of festive spirit wash over you.
There’s something incredibly joyful about incorporating holiday themes into our Bullet Journals. It’s not just about being organized or productive—it’s about celebrating the season, cherishing the memories, and creating something beautiful along the way.
So join me, and let’s spread some holiday cheer through our Bullet Journals this year?

Before you sit down to create any of these page ideas, let’s talk about supplies.
In the world of stationery, with so many materials and so many different brands, it’s easy to get lost and get tons of supplies you’ll never use. Or just buy something of a terrible quality.
So, I wanted to mention here a few of my favorites, especially for creating jolly holiday pages.
Sakura Pigma Micron – a good set of fineliners is a must-have, and these are amazing, have incredible archival ink, and come in sets with different nib sizes, so you get more variety.
Tombow Fudenosuke. These brush pens are some of the best for beginners and are great for brush lettering and doodling. And since it has a small brush tip, it is perfect for smaller headers like the ones you need for weekly spreads.
Christmas Washi Tapes. Beautiful set of holiday-themed washi tapes. Washi tapes are perfect for decorating your journal and adding a spark of holiday joy in no time.
Tombow Dual Brush Pens. These are some of the most popular brush pens out there for both their quality and the amount of colors available.
Ok, now you have all your supplies ready, so let’s dive into the page ideas!
Holiday Bullet Journal Ideas
The beauty of Bullet Journaling is that it's your world, and you get to make the rules! Want to dedicate an entire month to celebrating the holiday season? Go for it! Prefer to keep things more low-key with only one or two holiday-themed pages? That's fantastic too!
Remember, the aim here is not just about creating something visually pleasing (though that's a great perk!). It's also about crafting a tool that will help you navigate through the hustle and bustle of the holiday season with ease and joy.
Whether that means tracking your gift purchases, planning your holiday meals, or simply jotting down what you're grateful for this year, your Bullet Journal is there to support you.
So here are 15 holiday ideas for you to try in your Bullet Journal today!
Isn't it just wonderful how the holiday season brings with it a unique rhythm of joy and warmth? And what better way to capture this rhythm than through a Christmas playlist page in your Bullet Journal
Music has a magical way of setting the mood for any occasion, and the holidays are no exception. From timeless classics like "Jingle Bells" and "White Christmas" to modern hits that have quickly become part of our holiday traditions, a well-curated Christmas playlist can instantly transport us to a winter wonderland.
So, why not dedicate a page (or two!) in your Bullet Journal to your favorite Christmas tunes? Whenever you're feeling the holiday blues, all you need to do is turn to your Christmas playlist page, pick a song, and let the festive tunes fill your space with holiday cheer.
With the holiday season comes a flurry of festive activities. From decking the halls to sipping hot cocoa by the fire, there's so much to do and so little time. But worry not because I've got the perfect solution for you: A Holiday Bucket List in your Bullet Journal!
A Holiday Bucket List is essentially a list of all the fun, festive activities you want to do this holiday season. Not only does it help ensure you make the most of this magical time of year, but it also adds a touch of holiday cheer to your journal.
There's something so heartwarming about the holiday season, isn't there? The lights, the food, the time spent with loved ones - it all fills our hearts with joy. But there's one more thing that adds to the magic of the season: holiday quotes.
Yes, those beautiful words perfectly capture the spirit of the holidays! They remind us of the things that truly matter - love, joy, giving, and gratitude. And guess what? They also make for a fantastic Bullet Journal page!

And what better way to embrace this magical time than with a Christmas Countdown spread in our beloved Bullet Journals?
Picture this: A full-page spread dedicated to the anticipation of Christmas Day. Each day leading up to the 25th is represented by a beautiful present. And as each day passes, you get to color in or tick off the corresponding doodle, building up that festive excitement one day at a time.
Creating a Christmas Countdown spread is not just a fun and creative activity, but it also helps us slow down and truly savor the holiday season, one day at a time.
There's a nip in the air, the scent of cinnamon and pine is wafting from every corner, and the world around us is slowly transforming into a winter wonderland. You know what that means? It's time to bring a touch of this holiday magic to our journals too!
And what better way to do this than with a dedicated doodling page filled with holiday-themed doodles? So, grab your favorite pens, and let's get started!
These are amazing for decorating your holiday-themed Bullet Journal pages, but just doodling itself is actually a very calming practice, so it can definitely be your moment of peace and quiet in this busy, bustling season.
But amidst all this festive cheer, there's one tradition that I hold dear to my heart: sending out Christmas cards.
There's something so special about taking the time to write a heartfelt message to the people who mean the most to us. It's like sending a little piece of our love through the mail. And let's be honest, who doesn't love receiving a beautifully handwritten card in the post?
You probably have a long list of loved ones you want to send cards to. And while we're full of good intentions, it's easy to lose track and forget someone. But worry not, because I've got the perfect solution for you: A Christmas Card List in your Bullet Journal!
Creating a Christmas Card List is not just a practical way to keep track of who you need to send cards to, but it's also a delightful activity that'll get you into the holiday spirit. Plus, it's a fabulous addition to your journal that adds a touch of personalization and holiday cheer.
Of course, this list had to have at least one cover page! You don't have to actually create a complete holiday Bullet Journal theme for an entire month, but maybe just getting creative with your cover page is all you need.
I love how this cover page is pretty subtle, but you can clearly guess what month it is even without a header.
Imagine having a vibrant and colorful page where you can jot down all the joyous activities, from the big events like family gatherings and holiday parties to those small but precious moments like sipping hot chocolate by the fire or watching the snowfall outside your window.
One of my favorite examples of a holiday memories page comes from Nicole. She used holiday colors to create a beautiful spread filled with delightful doodles.
The best part about creating a memories page is that it's a fantastic way to ensure that your cherished moments are always remembered. Think of it as your personal time capsule, filled with snapshots of your holiday season that you can look back on fondly in the years to come.
As the holiday season approaches, there's nothing cozier than curling up with a warm blanket, a hot cup of cocoa, and your favorite Christmas movies. And what better way to celebrate this tradition than by incorporating it into our Bullet Journals?
One fantastic idea is to create a Christmas movie list.
Incorporating your favorite Christmas movies into your Bullet Journal is not just a fun activity but also a wonderful way to add a touch of personalization to your journal. Plus, it's a great conversation starter when you're sharing your journal with friends and family!
I've stumbled upon an idea that's both simple and profound, and I just can't wait to share it with you. It's not something I've seen often in bullet journals, but boy, do I think it deserves a spotlight! Drum roll, please...
Introducing: The Holiday Acts of Kindness List!
The holiday season is all about spreading love and joy, and what better way to do that than by performing acts of kindness? This list is essentially a collection of small, manageable tasks designed to bring a smile to someone's face. And trust me, there's no better feeling than crossing off these tasks knowing you've made someone's day a little bit brighter.
Isn't it amazing how a simple border can completely transform a page in your Bullet Journal? It's like putting a festive frame around your holiday memories, goals, or to-dos. And the best part is, you don't need any fancy supplies or artistic skills to create some stunning Christmas borders.
These border ideas are simple yet effective, and they're sure to add a festive touch to your Bullet Journal. And remember, these are just a starting point - feel free to adapt them to suit your style or come up with your own unique designs.
I know, I know, we've already talked about a cover page, but I just couldn't resist sharing this one with you. It's just too cute to keep to myself! This cover page is chock-full of all those delightful little things that make the holiday season so special.
But what really caught my eye about this cover page was the unique coloring technique. The creator skipped the usual black lines and went straight for the color! This gives the doodles a fun, playful look that's refreshingly different. It's like they've jumped right out of a children's storybook and onto the page.
