It’s that time of year again when Starbucks releases the new designs for its much-anticipated holiday cups.
Starting this week, Starbucks customers can order their favorite holiday drink in one of four festive yuletide cups and we are loving the “joyful” and “merry” approach the coffee company has gone with.
From us, to you – holiday through and through. 🎁 We’re gifting limited-edition Starbucks Red Cups tomorrow, November 6 with purchase of any holiday handcrafted beverage.

This year’s theme, which to be honest we all kind of need after a grueling 2020, is “Carry the Merry.”
“Our thought behind the cups this year was about people carrying them out in the world as messengers of joy,” Jeff Wilkson, creative director for Starbucks, said in a press release. “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.”
This year’s offerings feature four designs – Ribbon, Dot, Sparkle, and Band Wrap – with “Carry the Merry” written on two of the cups.
Starbucks will also be releasing their seasonal holiday offerings this week, which will include Peppermint Mocha, Toasted White Chocolate Mocha, Caramel Brulee Latte, Eggnog Latte, and Chestnut Praline Latte. The bakery section will also see some new delicious seasonal offerings, including a cranberry orange scone.
