10 Unique Journals Worthy Of Pouring Your Heart Into

Need a space to collect your thoughts? Whether it’s a DIY journal or a guided journal, it’s so rewarding to write down your feelings and memories! Journaling has been known to provide a variety of health benefits, including improving your memory, alleviating stress and anxiety, improving communication skills, and even helping you sleep better. So check out these unique journals that are perfect for recording all of the feels!

1. Guided Journal

If you’re new to journaling, then consider getting a guided journal. Typically, each page will showcase a prompt, a thoughtful quote, or a list you need to fill out. It’s perfect for getting your creative juices flowing! And, maybe free-writing isn’t your style anyway, so guided journals are the way to go! My favorite guided journals are the ones with a prompt for each day of the year, so when the year comes to an end, you can look back on all the progress you made each day!

2. Ombre Journal

This unique journal can be either a DIY or you can purchase one online. The lovely watercolor fade creates a comforting and warm cover, guaranteed to inspire any budding writer! If you want to make it yourself, then start by picking a plain hardback journal from your local stationery store, and then use any colors of multi-surface acrylic paint to decorate the cover!

3. Gratitude Journal

Feeling a little blue? Well, then let’s focus on all of the good things in life and get a gratitude journal! This unique guided journal is filled with daily gratitude prompts focused solely on improving your happiness. Gratitude prompts have been known to help people feel more optimistic, increase their moods, and lower stress levels. If you don’t want to purchase a gratitude journal, then make one of your own! All you need is a regular notebook, and then every morning or night, write down 5 things you are grateful for and why.

4. Denim Covered Journal

This stylish journal is too cute to pass up! This journal can be homemade but it’s a little difficult to do on your own, so I recommend purchasing one online. There are so many wonderful artists out there recycling pairs of torn “never-to-be-worn-again” jeans that are perfect for a denim journal! Some even have a pocket on the front for storing pens, and others come with ribbons and flowers. Wouldn’t this be the best gift for a friend?

5. Celestial Journal

Just as cute as Khaleesi and her husband Khal Drogo’s pet names for each other on Game of Thrones, a celestial journal will surely be the “moon of your life.” Let the sun, moon, and stars inspire you, and choose this journal! In the featured journal below, highlights of gold foil light up the sun, stars, and planets against a background of deep blue. I’m dazzled, are you?!

6. Passion Planner

Ok, I hear you. Yes, this is not technically a journal, but it’s probably the best thing you’ll ever buy in your life. The Passion Planner is a multifunctional planner that not only helps you stay organized, but each page has special writing prompts, sections to list and map out your goals, and even reflection pages! Instead of having a planner and journal, now all of your thoughts will be in one place! This year’s planners come in pink, green, blue, yellow, or red. If there’s anything you treat yourself to this year, let it be the Passion Planner!

7. Classic Ruled Notebook

We’re going old school. If the glitz and glam aren’t for you, then simply purchase the classic ruled notebook. They sell these puppies pretty much everywhere, from Amazon to your local stationery store. The great thing about these notebooks is that they are usually college-ruled, which means you have plenty of space to sort out your thoughts. The only difficult part is picking out a color you love; there are so many to choose from!

The most unique designs are bound by soft high-quality leather that will last you a lifetime!

9. Burn Book

Have you ever seen the movie Mean Girls? Then you know what I’m talking about! Take your journaling to the next level with a burn book! What typically goes in a burn book are all of the deepest, darkest secrets and confessions you have been holding in. And, these thoughts are so damning, that you might literally have to burn the book when you’re done with it!

Burn books can be therapeutic because we all need to vent sometimes, and what safer way to release your toxic thoughts than by writing them down somewhere special? You can make this book yourself, or you can purchase one online, the choice is yours!

If you find yourself falling down rabbit holes often, then this unique journal is for you! Truly one of a kind, this featured vintage Alice in Wonderland Junk Journal is custom-made and unbelievably gorgeous! The designs throughout the journal are vibrant and there’s plenty of journaling space (or picture space). The colors, ephemera, and various textiles come together so beautifully, making this book a great wedding gift or scrapbook! If you haven’t bought this journal yet, then “No time to say ‘hello, goodbye,’ you’re late, you’re late, you’re late!”
