Great Gift for Everyone on your List this Year: Handmade Journals

One of my favorite presents to give during the holiday is a journal or sketchbook. There are tons of options out there, which makes it simple to find something unique and thoughtful. And for all you nay-sayers, I can prove they’ll work for anyone on your list with a little roundup from one of my favorite handmade book and journal shops run by the talented E Bond of RoughDraftBooks.

Nature lovers will love these trees of america journals that look more like works of art than a place for jotting down your thoughts. What amazing covers.

Know someone who loves wine? Grab a bottle of their favorite and one of these wine journals and you have yourself the perfect gift. This is a great hostess gift during the holiday party season as well.

And if you have a buddy whose just graduated college or even high school, pick up one of these yearbook journals and you’re good to go!

If all else fails, you can always customize one of these alphabet journals with the first letter of the recipients first or last name. Pretty cool, huh?
