Finally, the one event that I look forward to the most in a year has happened and I am so excited to share with all of you the new items that will be out, the new drink, new cards, and of course, the new planner.
First off, I just had to hug this giant mug which also shows the Christmas design of the "red" cups. This year, they opted not to have red cups but rather, one that is more encompassing of everything. Personally, I loved this one since I love doodles and colors.
The merchandise that I liked were the fox mug as well as the YAH Christmas mugs. They just look really elegant.
Thankfully, I already have two of the cards below which are both the Pilipinas card since they are all gorgeous. The Cup card is a must have.
Now let's start with the drinks. This year, Peppermint is making a comeback but with a twist since this now comes with Green Tea whipped cream on top which actually made it better. The Toffee Nut is of course a staple and the newcomer of the season is the Vanilla Nougat which tasted like marshmallows.
I was able to try all three and I have to say that I will be drinking them in rotations coz everything tasted good. This is a first for me since I really hated the Praline drink from last year.
Now, we finally get to the best part which is the planner and because I love you guys, here are a few snaps. So this year, contrary to popular opinion that it would be the same as the SG planner, Philippines decided to have their own design. The 2018 Starbucks Christmas planner comes in a leather cover which is tan and chocolate brown.
The insides are the usual array of colors and doodles.
Now this is the new shocker. Every single planner comes with this Special Edition PILIPINAS card. Yes, you read that right. EVERY. SINGLE. PLANNER.
There are no more lines so for people like me who can't write straight, ouch!
I still love the little doodles though.
It also comes with a stencil so you can personalize everything.
Now this is the best part. When you activate your planner card on January 1, 2018 you get a chance to be one of the 20 winners of a Starbucks beverage drink for the rest of the year. That is ONE GRANDE DRINK every single day for 2018.
Ottoke ottoke! I wanna win this.
We also had the chance to write wishes for ourselves and this is mine.
Cheers to more Starbucks goodness and people who are real.
PS. These are puddings which will be available at Starbucks starting November 2. All merch and drinks are available on the same date.
