Tomorrow is the first day of the 12 Days of Gifting. It’s our annual holiday shopping event where we feature a different gift idea every day for the first 12 days of December. Check out every day to see that day’s great offer or text "12DAYS" to 697289 to receive daily offers.* We’re starting things off tomorrow with an idea you’ve asked for on My Starbucks Idea: a free drink with tumbler or mug purchase .

Starbucks for Rodarte, a Fashionable Holiday Combination
We’re always inspired by great design – and we know lots of people like us who are hard to shop for at this time of year. That’s why Starbucks asked Rodarte – the award-winning design house founded in 2005 by Kate and Laura Mulleavy – to help us design a collection of items for the fashion-minded. As daily coffee drinkers, Kate and Laura were excited for the chance and challenge. The gray-and-silver pixilated pattern they chose as an overarching element is inspired from their interest in abstraction. Inspired by the iconic Starbucks logo, the pattern reveals an inspired touch of modern sensibility. As Laura said, “What was really exciting was working with a … more »
Starbucks Gift Ideas for the Hard-to-shop-for

Grandma’s Turkey Sandwich Returns
Dear Erin, Is it true? Can you talk to Santa or anyone who can bring back something I loved? My holiday season wasn’t the same last year. While I love Peppermint Mochas and red cups, something was missing from my holiday wish list. Its divine savory profile and festive holiday taste left me craving more and more. Imagine my disappointment when I arrived at my local Starbucks last year – dressed in a holiday sweater, eagerly anticipating my first bite, singing carols (in my head, people laughed when I sung them out loud) – and then my holiday season crashed down around me. Grandma’s Turkey Sandwich was gone. I begged the barista to tell me what happened. Is Grandma okay … more »

How to Give Someone a Special Moment
Have you ever given someone an “IOU” booklet as a gift? You know, where you promise to perform some kindness, like doing the dishes or mowing the lawn? And did you ever actually do the dishes? If you are like me, the answers are “yes” and “probably not.” This year Starbucks has put a new twist on those booklets that, unlike my promise to mow the lawn, is sure to deliver a special moment. Many of you have told us how much you love giving Starbucks Cards as gifts, and our new Mini Moments booklets are a perfect way to give the gift of Starbucks. These booklets contain five paper $5 Starbucks Cards, each redeemable for a Starbucks moment like “Good for One … more »
