The Archer and Olive 2021 Holiday Gift Guide For Journalers, Creatives and Planners

by Design Team 05 Nov 2021 0 Comments

Holiday season is arriving, and it's time to start thinking about what to get for the loved ones in your life (especially with how shipping has been this year!). Notebooks and stationery are my favorite gifts to give. This is because I truly believe that everyone can find use in a notebook, whether it be for journaling, notes, memory keeping or even just weekly shopping lists! And for the creative people in your life, getting them a high quality, luxury notebook is something super thoughtful they will absolutely get use out of.

Here at Archer and Olive, one of the biggest questions we get is "What do you think I should get for my brother/mother/friend", so this year we're hoping to answer all these questions right here!


Gifts For Beginners

Buying for someone looking to start journaling or art? We have bundled together the perfect starter kit that contains a notebook, pen collection and accessory. You even get to pick the notebook size they will receive, but everything else is a surprise. Find it here:

Gifts That Keep On Giving

Looking to really treat that special person (or yourself!)? The quarterly subscription box ships every three months, filled with unique products all intended to get you creating. Want to know more, see the subscription box here:

We even have some September subscription boxes still in stock to ensure you get your first box for Christmas, just make sure to purchase before December 1st. After that we move to the December box, where the price will increase to $75 and we cannot guarantee it will arrive in time for the holidays (especially international!)


Gifts For Students

The first thing we recommend for students is a B5 notebook. B5 is our largest size, and we find students usually love that extra space to plan. See all the designs here!

Another amazing tool for note taking and planning are our Calliograph Pens. They have dual nibs, making them perfect for writing, fun headers, highlighting and more. The student in your life can have some fun with color as the study! And we all know pretty notes make studying much more interesting! See our sets here:

Gifts For Journalers

If you know someone who's a keen journaler, we have something they may love. The &YOU bundle was launched a little while ago, and it contains a notebook, and a free month of personalized journaling prompts. See more here:

Gifts For Her

We're strong believers that all genders can use any tool/color they wish, but we do get asked this a lot so we've included a section for something we think may be more catered to someone looking for more stereotypically feminine or masculine.

First up, an amazing collaboration with the talented PinkBits really celebrates all things femininity and body positivity.

The bundle includes a notebook, tote bag and self care stickers, with a true focus on journaling for your mental health. The perfect gift for anyone looking to spend more time on themselves! See it here:

Want something more personalized? Check out our new personalized notebooks. Get their name hand stamped on the notebook to really make this a special gift.

Gifts For Him

One benefit of men's clothing is their pockets. Therefore, a great gift idea is our B6 notebooks.

They're our smallest size, perfect for taking out and about, and will surely fit into a coat or jumper pocket so it's always to hand!

Or, pick up something truly just for them. A personalized notebook with their name. Sure to make them feel special!

Something EVERYONE Will Appreciate

We all need to jot things down by our computers or even of all when we wake up in the night with an amazing idea (or something you've forgotten!). Keep this notepad in that spot to jot down your notes. Perfect for lists as the perforated pages can easily tear away, or creatives and planners can use the extra pages in their notebooks. Truly a gift I believe can be appreciated by everyone! Find the notepads here:



I hope this guide helped you pick out some gifts for your loved one this holiday period. Make sure to join the community at @archerandolive / on Instagram and Archer and Olive Community on Facebook!
