Ellie Claire Journals Make Great Gift Ideas!

Disclosure: this is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



I have several good friends for whom I would like to get something special for Christmas, but I don't want to spend a ton of money (something we've all agreed we're not going to do). It's hard to find something meaningful that doesn't cost a small fortune, but with these high quality journals from Ellie Claire, I think I've hit a homerun.


The Faith & Lettering Journal like all of these journals has thick, high-quality paper, which I love. What it also has is options!! There are lines for traditional writing, bullets for those who love that type of journaling and graphs for drawing.


A variety of treats are liberally sprinkled throughout, like this beautiful page with a verse from the Bible on the left and a blank page for writing on the right. 


A bullet journal page is above, so you can see what that looks like. There is also a verse from Isaiah on this particular page, which delights me because that is one of my favorite books in the Bible.


New from professional letterer Krystal Whitten! With guides, instructions, and tutorials, this is a fun and inspiring way to create beauty with words. It is the perfect place for journalers to practice Bible journaling, lettering quotes and verses, or decorating a page with original thoughts and plans. Exploring your God-given creativity has never been so rewarding.

The Illustrated Word in an illuminated Bible Coloring Journal. The pages are flatter in feel (not glossy) because you are able to color on them. I'll show you below but you can't really feel the texture from a picture, so I wanted to describe it too.


Here is a writing page. In addition to traditional lined pages to write on, which is vital to have since this book is meant for jouranling, 


there are also full pages you can color. Some are entire picture scenes.


Others are scripture coloring pages.

Create your own masterpiece with this journal that has forty glorious illustrations from ancient manuscripts that have been recreated as line drawings. Just as medieval monks brought Scripture to life through intricate inked illustrations in handwritten manuscripts hundreds of years ago, you can now create your own stunning keepsake that will be treasured for years to come.

Illuminate Your Story is the journal that I think has the most information or instruction out of the 3 mentioned. There are a lot of pages to show you how to draw letters and/or animals.



and then you can color them in.


This journal has quite a bit of space for writing. At the top you see an uplifting scripture. That is the one common theme to all of these journals of faith.


This one also has a pocket included on the back, for any keepsakes you might want to include.

Use the almost-lost art of illuminating letters to enhance your writing, Bible journaling, or sermon note-taking. Rich illustrated manuscripts in the Museum of the Bible’s collection inspired these gorgeous letters. Easy to follow instructions, practice pages, and encouragements guide you through the creation of amazing start letters, flourishes, and more.

All three are great for different reasons, and they're sure to be welcome gifts for the writers/artists/'journalers' in your life. I love that they are personal and special, but still very reasonably priced. I will be including them in the Holiday Gift Guide.

Those are so beautiful. Barnes and Noble is doing well to compete when these are on the shelves.

Those are pretty! My boys don't really keep journals per say, but Travis is always writing and jotting stuff down. I got him a journal.
