Journal Gift Ideas


It’s never too late to give a gift (unless it’s your anniversary that you’ve missed, then you’re in big trouble).

For any other holiday, it’s never too late to find that last minute gift, and we’ve got some ideas for you.

Something Unique: Nepali Traveler Journal (Nature’s Wool Edition)

Nepali Traveler Journal by Kathmandu Valley Co.

This new journal is one of the most unique we’ve ever made. The wool comes from Himalayan sheep, a mix of black and white wool to provide the natural grey color.

The handmade felt is made by applying multiple layers of the wool and then pouring a soapy water solution over the fibers to help them form the felt.

Great care is taken to get the thickness just right. The journal of course contains our 100% Lokta paper made on the mountainsides of Nepal.

So different than other journals out there, the Nature’s Wool Edition of the Nepali Traveler Journal makes a unique and fun gift.

Something Rugged: The Nepali Pathfinder Leather Journals

The perfect gift for the adventurer, our Nepali Pathfinder journal is made with leather vegetable-dyed from mimosa bark, creating the beautiful caramel color, and black walnut husks, creating the dark brown leather strap.

NEPALI PATHFINDER JOURNAL BY KATHMANDU VALLEY CO.

For the adventurer, hiker, or exotic traveler, the Nepali Pathfinder makes a great gift for the rugged outdoorsy type.

Something Slim: Nepali Companion Notebook for the Practical Notetaker

Nepali Companion Notebook by KMVCO

Sometimes, you need a notebook that’s slim, but still has character. Our Nepali Companion Notebooks are softcover notebooks but with a rich tradition of vegetable-dyes used in the creation of the covers:

  • Pomegranate husks and indigo create the beautiful sage green color
  • Black walnut husks create the rich dark brown color
  • Cutch wood resin creates the earthy terra cotta color

Made with Lokta Paper, our Nepali Companion notebooks are practical, but also make a very unique gift.

Something Traditional: Nepali Namaste 6×9 inch Journals

Our new Namaste Journals are quickly becoming a favorite.

The traditional build makes the practical, but also unique with deckle-edged paper and of course, our signature Lokta Paper.
Nepali Namaste 6x9 inch vegetable-dyed journals by Kathmnadu Valley Co.

As with many of our journals, the Nepali Namaste Journals have deckled edges made by hand. Similar to rough cut, the deckled edges create an antique feel to a very special journal, making a great gift.

A Little Something for Everyone.

The tradition of Lokta paper creation goes back over 1,000 years in Nepal and is a very proud tradition. We hope you and your loved ones enjoy yours.

Namaste.
