Starbucks Philippines launched today at its Cheer Party in Starbucks 6750 Makati branch the annual Christmas Limited Edition Starbucks Coffee 2011 Planner, the returning Starbucks Christmas drinks (Peppermint Mocha, Praline Mocha and the Toffee Nut Latte) which are available hot, iced or Frappuccino blended, and some new and returning pastries and food items.
The much awaited Starbucks 2011 Planner is here, and it comes in 3 designs -- Red Velvet, Metal and Wood. The theme of this year's planner is based on the materials used in the Starbucks store. Red Velvet is from the couches, the Metal is from the counters, and the wood, obviously, from the chairs and tables.
PERFECT TO TELL STORIES OVER. A STORY FOR EVERY CUP. Starbucks suggests that you fill the planner out with stories and experiences you want to share with others and the world.
Purchase select Starbucks beverages throughout the holiday season to redeem the Limited Edition Starbucks Coffee 2011 Planner. You need 9 Starbucks Holiday Featured Beverages and 8 Starbucks Core Beverage of your choice (except bottled beverages, bottled water and fruit juices or Starbucks VIA Ready Brew for a total of 17 stickers to complete a card and claim your own Starbucks Coffee 2011 Planner :)
We got our own planner already. I chose the Wood design, while my brother got the Metal one. We sort of didn't like the Red Velvet because of the texture which was felt-like. For me, this year's planner is better than the last year. Although last year's cover was, for me, better than this year because of the action shots on the cover, the overall presentation and packaging of the 2011 Starbucks Coffee Planner has improved.
The calendar and the pages wherein you write stuff are better this year because it's less cramped and it has lines, unlike last year. The bookmark this year is a metallic Starbucks cup, unlike last year's coffee bean. The last page has discount and promo coupons you can use depending on the inclusive dates as stated on the coupon. You can see a sample of the month divider page from the photos below.
