Perfect gifts!

I bought three different journals for gifts, they are all of excellent quality, absolutely gorgeous and so well worth the price!

What a lovely journal

Writing in my journal is an important part of my life. The Compass Rose journal I recently purchased is more beautiful than I expected. The quality is superb, and I am very pleased to have a vegan "leather" cover that cedes nothing to fine leather. From a personal, ethical standpoint, I prefer the SoHo Spark choice, but even if that were not the case, this is beautifully made. The paper is terrific. I love that I can replace a completed journal with a refill. The thought that goes into these journals is exceptional. I had already purchased a SoHo Spark journal with a heavy paperboard cover; I love it, as well. But this one is to be treasured. I highly recommend one of these faux leather journals as a gift for someone you love – and for yourself.

Compass Journal and extra pages

I recently purchased my Compass Journal and love the look of the faux leather cover and engraving. It has been some years since I last wrote anything in a journal but I am looking forward to beginning writing again. I love the size and page layout and know this will be a valuable piece of my life.

I bought this on Amazon for myself and loved it so much that I came back to get some refills and another as a gift for my sister who loves hers just as much.

Beautiful, high-quality gift

This journal was truly a blessing to receive as a gift!
I was so inspired when I opened the package that I already started using it to write my next book <3
