Gift Guide for Stationery Lovers: 21 awesome gift ideas that will delight your friends who love all things stationery

The list of gift ideas for the stationery lovers was super fun to put together! Admittedly, because I have a slight obsession with all things stationery, too.

Gift Ideas for Stationery Lovers: Pens, Pens, and more pens.

1 – Kuretake Brush Pen No.55

Kuretake Brush Pen No.55

This pen is great for both calligraphy and hand lettering. It’s a dual tip brush that. The Kuretake #55 has an ultra-thin nip on one side and a fat nip on the one side.

The thin nip is ideal for writing and journaling. The skinny tip makes it easy to write in small letters.

The fat nip is great for practicing up- and downstrokes. Because of it’s flexibility and thickness you are able to achieve a painterly look.

Like with any thicker tip it takes a little bit of practice to get used to. The ink is highly pigmented. Overall the Kuretake #55 is an awesome pen and fit for gift ideas for stationery lovers.

2 – Kuretake Medium Tip Brush Pen 

Kuretake Medium Tip Brush PenWhen a Pen meets Brush … the result is a Calligraphy Brush Pen. Kuretake is a Japanese company that has been making pens since 1902!
So far I have found that their pens and markers are of excellent quality. The Medium Tip Brush Pen is great for both calligraphy and hand-lettering.
This pen is also useful for somebody who wants to learn Kanji (the Japanese style of writing). But even if you are ‘just‘ a fellow pen enthusiast like me, you’ll be very happy working with this pen. 
Like every other Kuretake this brush pen is also highly pigmented and gives your artwork a rich look. A word of caution. It might take you a while to get a hang of this brush pen and I’d classify this one as an intermediate one.

3 – Water Brush Set

Water Brush SetThis set includes one bold, one medium, and one fine point sized water brush pen. You can add either water or ink can be into the small chamber.

I recommend using an inexpensive set of eye droppers. You can use these brushes with watercolors or with ink. The advantage of a water brush over a regular paint brush is that simple.

Once you fill the little chamber with water (or ink) you can regulate the amount of water you want to use.
Quite a few people like to use a brush set like this one for their bullet journals, or mixed media art journals. You’ll have to experiment, but I found that the medium brush nip works best for hand lettering.

4 – Sakura Pigma Micron Pen Set

My go-to pens for writing in my bullet journal. Bullet journals have been a hot trend for many years and it looks like that’s not about to change any time soon.
And the tip is fine but easy to write with even though I’ve accidentally left them open overnight, not one of them has dried out.
These pens are also known as ‘Bible pens’ because you can use them to make notes in your (journaling) bible. For those who don’t know bible pages are notoriously thin which means that if you want to make any notes most pens that will bleed through. That’s not the case with the Micron Pens.
The ink quality is superb and is waterproof, fade resistant, and quick drying.

5 – Pilot Disposable Fountain Pen

Disposable Pink Fountain PensSuper cute disposable fountain pen with pink ink! I love the way these fountain pens feel on paper. 

And at moderate use the ink lasts for months. These disposable fountain pens also come in a very pretty teal color.

6  – Tombow Lettering Set

The Tombow Lettering set is a great gift for anybody who wants to get into lettering. It’s perfect for beginners.

The drawing pen (and eraser) are great for the initial sketching.

And you’ll appreciate the dual brushes that allow you to draw big and bold letters. The colorless blender is great to create beautiful effects and subtly combine multiple colors.

It’s a great set for someone who is brand new to lettering. If you want to make your stationery loving friend even happier, check out Skillshare for some great lettering courses. (I am obsessed with Jessica Hische’s class). 

Gift Ideas for Stationery Lovers: Extra + Bonus Recommendation

I’ve tried to include products from well-known brands as well as others from lesser known brands in this gift guide. All of the products in this guide are items that I have purchased in the past and loved and can wholeheartedly recommend.

Being a stationery lover myself writing this gift guide was a lot of fun.

Bonus Suggestion: Silhouette Cameo

For years I’ve loved the Silhouette Cameo. It’s the kind of machine that can do so much. It’s a cutting machine that can cut anything you can dream of and design on your computer. The Cameo comes with its own proprietary software.

I’m using my Cameo for one thing (vinyl), but it’s a great gift and it can cut a large variety of specialty paper and even felt! You can’t go wrong with this gift.

If you need some further inspiration check out the Silhouette School on YouTube.

And another cutting machine many people love is the Cricut Explore Air 2 Machine. Though I don’t have any experience with that particular cutter.
