If you’re looking for a simple lined journal notebook, this one from PAPERAGE is the one. Apart from being the #1 best-seller on Amazon, it also comes in 18 pretty colors. Plus, it costs less than $10! It also comes in bundles in case you’re planning to buy these as gifts.
The cover of this journal notebook from Eccolo already says it all—notes before bed. It aims to declutter your mind right before sleeping with 5-minute guided prompts. With its simple design, it also doubles as a bedroom decor.
With a deluxe 120 gsm paper, this journal from HUSTLE Co. is everything. There’s an inner pocket and a built-in pen holder on the side for easy note-taking. You also have four classic colors to choose from.
Handmade with genuine leather, this journal notebook from CooLeather features premium kraft pages and hand-stitched binding that make this perfect as a travel diary, daily journal, or even sketchbook.
This would look really good with vintage art journal materials.
If you’re on the hunt for a guided journal, this gorgeous guided journal from RYVE features gratitude prompts, affirmations, self-reflections, habit tracking, priority-setting pages, and more.
For bullet journaling, this one from RETTACY is ideal as it includes 120 gsm paper and uses a premium hardcover. Also choose from seven gorgeous colors! What I like about dotted pages is that you can also use it as a planner or for to-do checklists.
