This is a helpful gift guide for all of the moms who love to plan, journal and write. We are also moms who write so we use many of these journaling items regularly. If you have a mom who loves to take mindful notes and write down daily journal entries, you will find some great ideas here for her. Here are our best writing and journaling gifts that every mom would love to have if she is crazy about stationery!
Here are our top journal choices for moms who love to write. We picked the best lined journal, a dotted notebook and also a prompt journal that we would like you to check out. I personally use a dotted notebook on a regular basis but I have a lined journal for notetaking too. And wait until you see our new watercolor books! The prompt journal looks like a lot of fun too, and we will try to get one in for a closer look!
1. Leuchtturm1917 For Writing Journal Entries
This is the exact journal that I have and I love it for many reasons. The paper is 80gsm so if you are using Sakura Micron pens, you won't have any ghosting. This journal opens flat for easy writing and if your mom likes to clip recipes or insert notes or stickers, the elastic band will keep everything in place nicely. This journal is lined so she can write until her heart's content. This notebook is of really good quality too, so she can easily take it with her and just throw it into her purse or handbag without a problem. Your mom will love this!
2. Poluma Bullet Journal For Planning And Writing
If your mom likes to draw and doodle, you will want to grab her a dotted notebook. If you get her one of these, be sure to let her know that YouTube has a ton of bullet journal ideas to try! But a warning, once your mom gets into bullet journaling, it's going to be hard to get her away from watching all of the wonderful channels! And every time you see her, she'll be blissfully making monthly spreads, writing about her day and planning out her week. This notebook comes in a standard A5 size (5 x 8.25 inches) so it's easy to carry around and slip into her bag or purse. Perfect for the mom who likes to write while waiting in the car for her kids to get off the bus or during their swimming lessons or anything like that.
3. Our Story Begins Watercolor Notebook
The popular Our Story Begins notebooks. These notebooks feature gorgeous artwork and the hardcover makes them perfect for travel or putting them into your mom's purse or handbag.
