Gifts for Bullet Journal Beginners

Hey there! I’ve got another gift guide for you, this time for bullet journal beginners. Knowing where to start for bullet journaling can seem daunting, so I wanted to share a gift guide with perfect beginner tools.

This post contains affiliate links, meaning I make a small commission off of each sale. If you would like to know more, visit our disclosure policy. Thank you for supporting Creatively Lauren.

So, here is my gift guide for bullet journal beginners!

Scribbles That Matter Dotted Notebook // $19.99

Scribbles That Matter is a small business that sells mostly on Amazon, even though they have opened their own website. Their paperweight is 100gsm and has minimal ghosting and no bleeding. Their journal size is A5 and is perfect for a beginner. Many people love the STM journal, but some people have had issues with bad ghosting.

We R Memory Keepers Journal Guide // $12.99

This is the perfect tool for a beginner who is afraid of making mistakes. This helps make straight lines and circles and will help any novice make beautiful spreads.

Tombow Dual Brush Markers in Pastel // $26.99

Tombow is a very well-known stationery brand. Their dual brush pens are some of the best on the market. They are expensive so I would definitely try to find a pack on sale on Amazon, or going to your local craft store and buy a single pen to test and see if you’ll like it.

Scribbles That Matter Brush Markers // $19.99

These brush markers are fresh on the market. Scribbles That Matter did admit that they are not created directly by them, but I do think that these are absolutely perfect for beginners. This pack comes with 60 dual brush pens, which is a great deal for beginners looking to get into brush lettering design but doesn’t want to spend too much.

Leuchtturm Hardcover Dotted Notebook // $19.95

Leuchtturm is also well-known in the journal/stationery market. Their notebook is sized at A5 and their paperweight is 80gsm. Many people rave about Leuchtturm, but some people have also had claims of bad ghosting.

Staedtler Triplus Fineliner Set of 36 // $18.50

These pens are great for bullet journaling. They are a fine point at 0.3mm and are perfect for making sharp and colorful lines/drawings.

Tombow Fudenoske Brush Pen Set of 2 // $3.92*

If you’re looking to get into bullet journaling, then this set would be good. This set comes with two brush pens, one with a hard tip and one with a soft tip. The hard tip allows for more stiffness to be able to learn how to control the pen. The soft tip offers more flexibility but is also harder to control. The soft tip pen would be more of an advanced pen.

*Amazon considers this an add-on purchase. You must purchase $25+ to purchase this item.

20 Piece Journal Stencil Set // $6.98

If you consider yourself artistically challenged and you’re too afraid of messing up your new journal, then stencils would be perfect for you. I even use stencils in my bullet journal. This stencil pack has everything you need, letters, numbers, headers, shapes, and more. Stencils are a great gift for beginners so they don’t have the fear of messing up their journal.

Sakura Pigma Micron Pen Pack of 6 // $10.85

These pens are great for making outlines on drawings or sharp and defined lines for bullet journal spreads. This set has a variety of weights ranging from ultra-fine point to medium point. These are good base spread pens, I wouldn’t use them for filling in your spreads, but for drawing them.

Here are my bullet journal beginner gift suggestions!
