Can you hear that? That’s the sound of jingling bells on the horizon – Christmas time is almost here! And to celebrate the festive season, Starbucks has launched a brand new Red Cup, its first ever colour-in Christmas cup for you to add your own festive cheer. The beautifully designed cup is hand-drawn and features a pair of hands holding red cups of coffee, swirling ribbons and a lovely festive season with splashes of the traditional green and red.

It’s not just for Christmas though, since it’s the season of giving. Starbucks is passionate about supporting local communities through its #CheerForGood campaign.  For every Red Cup purchased, Starbucks will donate 30 cents to charity, along with Hamley’s who will be donating hundreds of teddy bears to little ones in need.

Need an excuse to buy one? Starbucks has also just launched its Christmas range of drinks. The Christmas menu includes the much-loved Christmas coffee blend (Gingerbread Latte with gingerbread flavoured syrup, whipped cream and wafer crumbs), the Toffee Nut Latte (with real hazelnuts, whipped cream and hazelnut sprinkles), and the latest addition, the indulgent Fudge Hot Chocolate (with chocolate fudge syrup, fudge flavoured whipped cream and gold chocolate curls). Choose your favourite to enjoy and give back this festive season.
