If you like to do your bullet journal planning in advance, I bet you’re already thinking of Christmas bullet journal ideas to make this year.
If that’s the case, nice to meet you! I’m an early planner too, so I plan my bullet journal layouts and themes in advance. I like to fill it with as much detail as possible and include doodles and cute lettering, and that takes time!
This year I’ve selected the best Christmas bullet journal layout ideas to gather some inspiration and hopefully start creating my own Christmas themed bujo pages.
In this selection, I’ve included all types of bullet journal layouts that may help you to be more productive: monthly covers, habit trackers, monthly calendars, weekly spreads, Instagram trackers and even a Christmas countdown spread!
Are you new to this whole bullet journaling thing? Here are the basic tools you’ll need to start a bullet journal:
BULLET JOURNAL TOOLS
Turns out starting a bullet journal is way easier than what I expected. I had spent several months scrolling through bullet journal Instagram accounts telling me that I needed a $30 journal and a $50 worth pack of markers if I wanted to start a bullet journal. But you can actually do the same for a lot less!
If you’re just starting out on your BuJo journey, you don’t need to spend hundreds of money on professional tools as a lot of established bullet journals recommend you. Instead, I got more affordable options that do exactly the same:
Journal – I use this bullet journal I got for a really inexpensive price on Amazon. The pages are dotted, which makes it easier to draw straight lines and perfect squares. It has been designed exclusively for bullet journaling as you can see on the front cover. On the first page, it has a blank space led by “This bullet journal belongs to” that you can fill in with your name. I think this is so cool because it reminds me of the old vintage journals.
- Pens – I use the Pigma Micron black finalizers for writing in titles and lines. These are a bit more expensive than usual, but you can get a pack of 6 for a really good price on Amazon. Each one has a different size, so you can do everything with them and you won’t need to purchase any other pens. When bullet journaling, pens are probably the thing that you’re going to use the most, so investing in good ones from the beginning is a great idea.
- Markers – I personally prefer minimalist bullet journals with clean spreads, so I’m not a big fan of markers. However, I add small touches of color here and there and I do it with my favorite pastel markers. If you like decorating your bullet journal with a lot of colors I highly recommend investing in a pack of good quality markers.
- Gold pen – on special occasions I’ll use this metallic gold pen. I only have one so I don’t really want to waste it writing everything in gold ink. It looks beautiful when combined with the Pigma Micron pens! This is definitely a good investment and I wouldn’t change it for anything.
- Washi tape & stickers – I use washi tape to fill blank spaces where I don’t know what to write or draw and as an underlay for text. I also use mini sticker stars to mark the most important things of my daily to-do lists. For example, if writing a post is something I must do on Monday no matter what, I’ll add a star to remind myself later.
Now it’s finally time to show you the best Christmas bullet journal layout ideas!
