Starbucks Holiday Cups Are Back

Starbucks' is giving out red holiday-patterned cups on Nov. 6.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: Starbucks holiday cup time! The coffee purveyor is launching its iconic cups on Nov. 6, with a promo customers will love.

This year, Starbucks isn’t just introducing one new holiday cup, but four! The theme is called Carry the Merry, and it features four patterns inspired by washi tape: ribbon, dot, sparkle, and brand wrap. All of them look as if they’ve been wrapped around a classic red cup.

“Our thought behind the cups this year was about people carrying them out in the world as messengers of joy,” said Jeff Wilkson, creative director for Starbucks. “In a way, that message deepened as we got further and further into this year. We want to be that beacon for people, a brief moment that they can look forward to.”

The four new Starbucks' cup holiday designs launch Nov. 6.

To celebrate, on Nov. 6, Starbucks will be handing out reusable, collector’s cups styled after the four new holiday versions. You’ll want to head to your local store early, though, because supplies are limited. All you have to do to score yourself a free cup is order an official holiday drink (yes, those are back, too, including the iconic Peppermint Mocha).

If you’re ready for the holidays, you can start celebrating with Starbucks right now!
