I have several friends that Bullet Journal. I don’t get it. I am not that creative. But I know that for a lot of people – it’s calming and relaxing. For me, it would be tearing page after page and being irritated that nothing is perfect.
But hey, it’s the holidays and for one of my best friends, I put together a bullet journal basket. So, if you have someone in your life that likes to do it – I’m helping you out with the overwhelming amount of stuff she has informed me that they need.
To each their own, but let me help you out with the list that I got.
What Is It: Stencils
I always wondered how Bullet Journal people make everything so pretty. But apparently there are a lot of stencils out there in the world to help you with that.
Makes some sense, in my opinion.
A pack of stencils will help the bullet journal person in your life make everything all sorts of pretty. This pack has 36 stencils with all sorts of different designs. There are over 1500 different patterns.
What is it: Rulers
Rulers were definitely different back in the day.
But since a lot of bullet journals don’t have lines, it’s no big surprise that rules are needed. And this pack has all sorts of different ones.
9 pieces of drawing templates in different designs – there are a lot of different ways to use these.
And hey with the stencil pack above – who can go wrong?
What is it: Binder Clips
I am not sure why anyone would ever need an abundance of these, but according to my friends who bullet journal, they are useful.
So hey, they cheap. They useful.
What is it: White out pens
Mistakes in everything are bound to happen. I mean lets be real.
If I was to bullet journal, I would need these in a huge ass box. I have issues. BUT, people who are experts don’t need a lot. However they do need them.
Unlike the binder clips above, I can see the reasons why.
What is it: Washi Tape
Pretty sure that these are for decorative reasons and hey – that’s the best thing. If you’re investing all of the time into bullet journaling, then make is purty.
There are lots of different styles of the tape – different colors, different widths, etc.
So you can find a lot across the internet. It’s a cheap way to decorate but makes everything so pretty.
What is it: Pens, pens, pens
Of course in order to make a good journal you have to have a good pen. And lots of them.
Lots of them in different colors, styles, writing widths.
And so the best part of bullet journalling – in my opinion – is the amount of pens that you get to use.
So if you’re getting a person who bullet journals a gift make sure that it includes a lot of pens.
I may have bought a crap ton of the dual brush pens – cause they are pretty and I want to pretend like I can write pretty.
Professional inking pens used by comic artists, illustrators, watercolor artists, archivists, and laboratory professionals – these are always great too. Get a fine line set.
What is it: A Journal
Journals are kinda the most important thing. After all you have to have something to use all this stuff in.
Dotted journals are a favorite amongst bullet journalists.
Though I prefer a good Moleskin notebook (I have brand loyalty), I was told that Rhodia notebooks are just as great.
They’ve got a ribbon that helps you mark your place, thick pages, and an elastic band that keeps the journal closed.
What is it: Stickers, Stickers, Stickers
What a beautifully easy way to decorate, organize, and make sure that everything is in place.
Stickers can be inspirational. Stickers can be decorative. Stickers can be an easy way to mark something without having to write the same thing over and over.
I personally bought myself a bunch of plant stickers (I mean I can’t keep a plant alive, so I might as well have a sticker plant).
Do you Bullet Journal? What do you need? What are you getting the bullet journal addict in your life?
