All this and more today as we explore 13 of the best journals for men on the market today including some from your very own Moonster Products!
1. Refillable Classic Journal (Lined) by Moonster
All of Moonster's journals are made from 100% full-grain buffalo leather. This handmade leather journal is no exception, featuring 320 pages of 70gsm premium-milled lined paper, bearing craftsmanship that you will instantly feel beneath your pen.
2. Classic Journal (Blank) by Moonster
This is the kind of journal for the journaler who is determined to mine themselves back into the past by any means possible. The leather here bears a patina that makes it seem almost as though it has been excavated from an archeological dig.
3. Refillable Tree of Life Journal by Moonster
Another offering from Moonster, this luxury journal continues in their luscious tradition of flaying the skin of buffalo and turning the skin by flights of fancy into brown bonded leather. For those looking to give a little back to the planet, this is certainly the best journal for the job because it is refillable and, once full, won't just sit and gather dust on your shelf.
4. Joshua 1:9 Journal by Moonster
The 120 double-sided sheets in this journal have been made from recycled cotton and yet are still of an outstanding quality - 125gsm in fact! The developmental benefits don't end here, though, for the company also donates some of the profits to the prevention of child cruelty in Africa.
5. Classic Journal (Lined) by Moonster
Whether you intend to self-journal for self-improvement or for the betterment of mental health, these blank pages offer forth the perfect canvas for whatever your intentions be. Make sure your own journaling is done on this acid-free paper wrapped in genuine buffalo leather that has been hand-stitched.
6. Refillable Classic Journal (Lined) by Moonster
Though it is fresh and made to purchase, this vintage leather journal bears many of the same marks and scuffs that you might expect from a leather patina much older and wiser to the world's woes.
This vintage feel is no doubt what so many people approach this area of journaling for, so if you are fishing for compliments from your journaling friends, you will no doubt find what you seek.
7. Tree of Life Journal (Blank) by Moonster
This rustic leather notebook from Moonster is the perfect writing companion for journal lovers and anyone with a taste for things with an antique or vintage feel. Features include a unique tree embossed cover and wonderfully creamy, textured sheets without lines in two sizes: 7"x 5" and 8"x 6".
8. Tree of Life Journal (Lined) by Moonster
Filled with 200 sheets / 400 pages of lined parchment paper, our travel leather journal notebook is a ruled journal that lies flat, making it a pleasure to write in and it comes in two sizes: 7” x 5” and 8" x 6".
Whether you’re logging your life or jotting everyday things down, you’ll always get lots of compliments on it!
9. Hardcover Classic Notebook by Wertioo
Here we have a notebook that bears an uncanny resemblance to the previous offering from Moonster, and yet doesn't exactly go as hard as they do in terms of giving back to the people and the planet.
Still, this leather-bound outing is remarkably well-suited to all sorts of journaling, bearing an elastic band for safety, a ribbon bookmark to save your place, as well as an adhesive pen holder so that you are never caught with your proverbial pants around your ankles.
10. Eco-Friendly Natural Cork Notebook with Pen Loop by Lemome
A company that is, however, trying to do better for the planet comes in the form of Lemome. This is a name that those vegetarians, environmentalists, animal lovers, vegans, and international developers in the know will automatically rejoice at, especially since the release of this eco-friendly little number!
Though it may look and feel like leather, the cover is made from cork fiber, a far more sustainable material than luxury leather. In fact, a cork tree can live for as long as 300 years and has bark that can be harvested without damage throughout this time. Why not lay this journal completely flat and see how it makes you feel?
11. Handmade Leather Journal by RTFL
That being said, for some, there really is no replacing the look and feel of a genuine leather jacket, something that this handmade offering from RTFL has in spades. While this is by no means crazy horse leather, this is still a high-quality product, and, since this is genuine leather, no two journals are likely to be the same.
The elastic bands here are elegant and horizontal. Making this an altogether sleek journal for the working man who likes to keep everything neat and tidy in his laptop bag.
12. The Mountains Journals by SohoSpark
Ever fancied yourself or your loved one as the strong, silent type, like John Wayne in all those Westerns with all the subtext about the ultimate failure of Manifest Destiny? Then, you're in luck, because this journal is directly intended to make you feel like a brooding cowboy with little else but a gun and a heavy conscience in this world.
Despite its pert looks, this journal is actually made from faux leather, meaning that you don't have to sacrifice your vegan ideals and anti-animal cruelty ethics to be like your favorite cowboy heroes.
13. Leather Journal with Bamboo Pen by Case Elegance
If you are desperately in need of a combination of a journal and pen to get you started journaling immediately, then the veritable Case Elegance has you covered. This is especially great as a gift because, if you order it directly from Case Elegance themselves, you can engrave it with the initials of the recipient.
With an exterior made from authentic leather, the real difference here lies in the novel locking method. In order to fasten this journal together, you are supposed to place a pin through the holes in the leather strap that wraps around the leather binding.
14. Leather Journal Travel Diary by Sovereign-Gear
Made from a softer and more supple leather that is alternately tough, sweet-scented, and lathered in sumptuous-smelling oils, this journal is great for anyone looking to write outside as well as inside.
The aforementioned oils also mean that you can scratch any sort of design you like into the leather's surface, leaving it to bear for anyone to witness. When you grow tired of the design and fancy a change of scene, you can just as easily rub the leather clean and begin again.
This alongside an internal pen holder that is actually filled with a pen upon purchase makes this a must-have!
15. Refillable Handmade Traveler's Notebook by Robrasim
This soft leather is not only remarkable for the sheer softness of the material on display but rather for the fact that no matter what type of paper you begin with, you can replace it at the end and refill it to keep on writing within its walls ad infinitum.
Indeed, much like Moonster, Robrasim clearly has one eye on the end of the world, prompting each of its users to at least consider refilling this journal with their paper of choice and to ensure that we are not just throwing away our things in favor of the new.
So, there you have it! Hopefully, you are now feeling ready and able to pick from this mammoth list of journals one that best suits your needs and wants.
FAQs Best Journal for Men
WHAT MEN SHOULD WRITE IN A JOURNAL?
There is no specific type of man that should or should not write in a journal. On the flip side of this question syntactically, there is also nothing specific that a man should write in a journal. Rather, each should be as personal as possible.
IS JOURNALING GOOD FOR MEN?
Broadly, yes. Seeing as there is stereotypically a great void of empathy and emotion in the prototypical man, a journal can be a great way to explore these things in greater detail for a man.
WHY SHOULD MEN JOURNAL?
There is no specific reason men in general should journal - rather, they should journal personally about what they feel most comfortable journaling. A journal is an incredibly personal space for the exploration of our inner world.
WHAT MEN'S JOURNAL SHOULD I GET?
This remains to be seen by each individual prospective journaler, for there is no doubt going to be a different journal for each one of us. A journal that works well for one man might not work as well for another, and vice versa.
