If there's a special person in your life who loves to read and write, treat them to the gift of a customized journal. Pick one with a hardcover, which will be durable enough to go with the recipient on all of their adventures.
High-quality hardcover journals are typically constructed with thick, durable cardboard and may feature leather or waterproof laminated bindings. Pick a journal that reflects the recipient's personal style or lifestyle. For instance, if they go on frequent outdoor trips, choose a water-resistant journal for protection.
You can have the journals customized according to your loved one's favorite hobbies, designs, or pictures. Companies can also print specific sayings, quotes, and names on the covers as a personalized touch. The journals' pages are just as varied, and feature either lined or blank pages, depending on your preference.
A customized hardcover journal makes a thoughtful gift for a wide range of special events or occasions, including holidays such as Christmas and Easter, birthdays, and high school and college graduations. They're also great bridal shower gifts, as moms-to-be can use them to record pregnancy or baby development milestones.
Following are some additional hardcover journal gift ideas:
1. Picture-Customize Journals
Surprise the recipient with a journal customized with one of their favorite pictures. You can use an image of a pet, their family, or a favorite vacation destination. Send a digital image to an online printer and have them create a cover using it.
As another idea, have a leather-bound journal embossed with the recipient's name or monogram. You can use any color, such as gold or silver for an elegant look. Have a special date, such as a wedding date or a birthday, embossed on the cover as well.
2. Journal Gift Sets
If your budget allows, create a one-of-a-kind gift set starting with a high-quality hardcover journal. If you don't want to have it customized or personalized, pick a journal with binding in the celebrant's favorite color, or choose a hue that reflects the specific occasion. Ideas include school colors for graduation or pink or blue for a baby shower.
Round out the gift with a pen, colored pencils, glitter or regular markers, or any other type of writing or drawing instrument. If the recipient is young, you can include stickers or other craft supplies as well.
Coffee mugs, water bottles, books, and even book bags make additional fun gift options.
