Great Gifts for Scrapbookers #8: Journaling Pens

This week, I’m listing some fab gift ideas for the scrapbooker in your life — maybe yourself! Pass on the link to your loved ones, or scoop up one and wrap it up as a present to that all-important person: YOU! (Read on to see how you can treat yourself AND someone else!)


I am an office supply junkie. Paper, pens, paperclips, notebooks, calendars, organizers… you name it! It’s definitely an addiction! That was why I was thrilled when Jetpens.com sent me a sample of writing implements to use and review (you can check out my full review here: Best Pens for Scrapbooking).

Pens make great stocking-stuffers, and you don’t have to worry about if they’ll fit, if they’re the right color, or if the recipient already has one just like it (the more, the merrier, I always say!).

Here are some of my recommendations:

Uni-ball Signo Angelic Gel Ink Pen – 0.7mm – Violet ink.

Uni-ball Signo UM-100 Gel Ink Pen – 0.5mm – black

Uni-ball Signo Broad UM-153 Gel Pen – Gold Ink

Uni-ball Signo Broad UM-153 Gel Pen – White Ink

Pilot Envelope Address Writing Gel Ink Pen – Fine

Maybe the best part, though, is that you can scoop up ALL of these for less than $10. Fantastic!

Check out JetPens and grab some cool writing tools for yourself, or someone you love (you can always borrow them).

P.S. The folks at JetPens have offered a $25 gift card to one of my readers! All you have to do is head over to their site, pick a pen you’d love to have, and come back here to tell me about it. Contest closes Monday, December 13, at 12 Midnight eastern.

  • Peg in CO

    I am dying to try those Sakura souffle pens so this would be the perfect opportunity! :)

  • DaniNYC12677

    I love love love the Sakura Gelly Roll pens would love lots of colors to add to my collection!

  • Racheldallaire

    I have heard amazing things about the envelope address writing pen. :-)

  • Joanie

    The Lamy extendable ball point pen is a cool idea. It could fit easily in your pocket whereas a long pen would not.

  • Jdaloisio

    So cool- I love pens :)

  • MSDragonfly

    I’m such a sucker for Fountain pens! I love the feel of it… just nothing better. And Pilot’s Capless is one I’ve been wanting to add to my collection for a while! But I’m thinking a pink Ohto Tasche fountain pen would be a good (and more affordable) addition, as well!

  • Skgberry

    I love the white Uni-Ball, but could be persuaded (as another office supply junkie) to branch out. I love fountain pens too and they have some inexpensive ones I would not be afraid to carry around and not be worried about losing.

  • Debd94

    My husband would love to receive this gift certificate. He loves jetpens!

  • Michellefiori

    My favorite Pen is the uniball signo pens. I pretty much love them all!!

  • Jeannett_mcgee

    I like the Dong-A Popcorn Puffy Paint Pens, they just look like a lot of fun to play with. Thanks, all the pens look great.

  • Gidget99

    Wow! Eyecandy for me! I have found a new source for my beloved 3 and 4-color ballpoint pens. I didn’t know Uniball made them. I had bought some from Zebra when i was a Japan and have run out of my supply! Thanks!

  • LCSmithSAVED

    looking for a good white pen – Penpedia on the Jetpens site shows a good comparison – liked the Uni-ball Signo Broad

  • Heather P. – scrapmomto3

    I love love LOVE my uni-ball signo broad white… Having the silver (especially for this time of year) would be AWESOME! Thanks Lain!

  • Joscelyne

    I just ordered a bunch of cute pens, pencils, erasers this month from jet pens but there are always more goodies! I love the fountain pen, the envelope pens, and the erasable pens i got.

  • Pat

    I would get the Uniball Signo Bit pens in lots of colors, but those Style Slims look awfully cool too!

  • Janet

    I am loving the Ohto Tasche needle point pen with a sleek, pink (and therefore all mine) body. Such a statement I’d make :-)

  • karen keiper

    well I was a stationery girl before i became a scrapbboking girl so this was a very difficult decision!!!! I think I would choose the sakura souffle gel pens.

  • Heather S.

    Thanks for sharing this.

    I could use some new pens. Most of mine are tired. I’m always searching for the basics, a good white pen that can write on dark cardstock and look crisp, and a black pen as a go-to for journaling. Fun colors would be good too. :-)
