The Holiday Season is just around the corner, and people are filled with much excitement to celebrate it with all their loved ones. This is also the perfect time to cherish the company of our family and friends who have definitely made this year extra special. Despite each one’s busy schedule, the holidays call for a celebration that no one can afford not to attend.
In relation to my personal experiences, Christmas is when the acts of kindness and generosity are most genuine. Sincere giving and acceptance of gifts has become a tradition of every Filipino household, including ours.
“The holiday season is a time for coming together and sharing goodwill. In our stores, we encourage these simple acts of kindness, in recognition of those who spend their time with us and those who embody generosity during this season,” said Keith Cole, Starbucks Philippines head of marketing.
To keep the Christmas spirit of ‘giving good’ alive, Starbucks won’t disappoint all its coffee lovers by giving its biggest gift that it ever offered: A year’s worth of coffee for lucky customers bringing home the Starbucks 2018 Planner.
Plan a truly memorable year with Starbucks
Twenty (20) winners will bring home a year’s worth of Starbucks Grande handcrafted beverages and twenty (20) more will receive a month’s worth of Grande handcrafted beverages of their choice, as Starbucks Christmas present to all coffee enthusiasts.

The brand’s collection of planners which featured blue siren and coffee stain designs was revealed last year. Today, Starbucks turns its spotlight to Kape Vinta Card, through which Filipinos can choose from the blue and green hues reminiscent of the calm of the season and the warm pigments orange that is as festive as the card it frames.
Encased in leather sleeves, both designs give off a classic look for the Starbucks staple item. Inside, there are plenty more surprises such as a stencil ruler and a cleverly-designed calendar that can be folded in a shape of a cup. All planner sets are available in regular and mini sizes.
November 2 is fast approaching, and we want it to arrive sooner for in that day, Starbucks fans can already start collecting stickers to get their hands on the highly-anticipated planners. Three handcrafted holiday beverages are the choices to savor the flavors of Christmas.
“We are very excited to introduce this year’s line-up of highly anticipated holiday beverages: the Christmas Tree Peppermint Dark Mocha, Vanilla Nougat Latte, and the returning, Toffee Nut Crunch Latte. These eye-catching, delicious and festive beverages will surely cheer up everyone’s holidays,” said Jamie Silva, Starbucks Philippines category manager.
As always, Starbucks stores will be full of items that perfectly match the spirit of Christmas. Many exclusive collections of curated merchandise, whole bean bags of the returning Starbucks Christmas Blend, and its Christmas tea pack, the Teavana Joyful Medley Tea, are all up for grabs!
And the joy doesn’t end with coffees. The Starbucks menu has always been known to offer a variety of food and beverages to satisfy not only your coffee cravings but also your hungry stomach. Food items like Roasted Turkey and Chicken with Bacon on Cranberry Bread, Truffle Brownie Cheesecake, and 17-layer Chocolate Crepe Cake are all up in the menu. With this, Starbucks is sure to make your holiday feast more memorable.
I can always attest that Starbucks makes everything exceptional, that whether you are a coffee addict or not, you are already a fan! Aren’t you?
Cheers to an all-out Christmas celebration of you and your family with Starbucks Christmas treats. And watch out for more ‘give good’ news that are coming your way.
