It is the most wonderful time of the year again! Starbucks Philippines unveiled last night "Let There Be Bright," the new Starbucks Holiday/ Christmas campaign, and the new offerings which will all be available starting November 3 in all your favorite Starbucks branches nationwide. 

Christmas at Starbucks is not complete without the Christmas beverages. The return of the iconic Red Cup, together with delicious holiday espresso and coffee beverages that have delighted customers around the world as we celebrate this special time of the year. Starbucks Philippines invites everyone to celebrate the wonder and joy of the holidays with new and returning Christmas beverages, beautifully crafted with flavors of the season to inspire them to share the joy with family and friends -- making everyone's Christmas just a little more "merry and bright."

But probably the most awaited part of the Starbucks Philippine Christmas Tradition is the return of the Starbucks Planner. Now on its 12th edition, the Limited Edition Starbucks Philippines 2015 Planner will feature four interesting designs/colors.


Every coffee has a story. And so does the Philippines Starbucks Planner. "Whether you’re still finding your favorite drink or enjoying your “me” time with your favorite coffee at your third place, we want to make sure that we continue to give you an extra shot of lift in the heart with some daily inspiration," Starbucks Philippines said in a press release.


And so, in 2003, Starbucks Philippines thought of creating something to keep everyone company as we begin our day with a fresh cup of coffee. Something to plan out our the day with or cherish our moments with. Something that will tell the Starbucks story. And keep our stories as well. Since then, Starbucks Philippines put passion in telling stories one planner (and cup) at a time.


This November 3, Starbucks Philippines annual Christmas tradition returns with the 12th edition of the Starbucks Planner. The Limited Edition Starbucks Philippines 2015 Planner will be available in four water-resistant apron cloth covers (green, black, red and brown) with a name tag bookmark, a coffee pin bookmark and a chalk pen with highlighter.
