Survive The Last-Minute Christmas Shopping at Starbucks

Survive The Last-Minute Christmas Shopping at Starbucks

Christmas is the most highly anticipated season of the year. Excitement starts as early as September and it gets more intense when the 100 day countdown begins wherein you get reminded nightly at the end of the evening news. Actually, you see you’ll see the countdown almost everywhere – malls, restaurants, and other establishments. But no matter how much we are reminded of it, we still can’t make time for it. We’re so busy making money to give gifts on Christmas, we can’t squeeze in some time to buy them.


Christmas is just around the corner and so are Starbucks. Business districts have one in almost each corner and most of the buildings have their own Starbucks. At Starbucks you can squeeze in your Christmas shopping during your coffee breaks.  Starbucks has a lot of merchandise and collectibles that you can give as gift this Christmas.


Some of us maybe tired of getting mugs as exchange gifts at school or the office but I don’t mind receiving these mugs. The Penguin Mug(₱525) and the Candy Cane Mug with Silicone Cover(₱595). I prefer the penguin mug over the other.


Starbucks also has cute espresso shot glasses designed for the holidays. You give it as a gift to your friend who wants espresso shots to stay awake to catch Santa.


I found gifts that are perfect for the working Tito and Titas of Manila, the Red Plaid, Blue Dots, and Silver Snow water bottles will keep cool during office meetings. It looks cool too! Just buy one that doesn’t match their office uniform. Each costs ₱595.


If you have friend working in a BPO, give them tumblers. I used to work for a BPO and Starbucks tumblers are usually what they have on their wishlist for their team’s exchange gifts. It keeps their coffee hot while in a very cold office environment and it does not spill on their keyboards. The Blue Trees and Black & White Bears tumblers are at ₱695 each.


Your inaanaks‘ will love the cute Bearista Bear Boy & Girl for only ₱695 each.


If you have friends that are Starbucks collectors, these set of mugs will be the best gift you can give them this Christmas.


  • XOXO Acrylic Tumbler (₱695)
  • Confetti Tumbler (₱695)
  • Double Wall Hearts Mug(₱995)
  • Double Wall Paint Drip (₱995)
  • Leopard Print Mug (₱595)
  • Paint Drip Tumbler (₱695)


For someone special, say it with Swarovski.


We’re all busy and traffic is one of the reasons why we try  to avoid the Christmas rush. Last-minute shopping is no fun. Imagine the long lines at the cashier, the hours we spend inside in traffic, or waiting for a taxi only to be declined.

Starbucks is just around every corner and they have gifts ideas to match the people in your own naughty and nice list. Aside from those beautiful merchandises, there’s the Starbucks Reserve® Christmas Coffee Blend for your dad or tito, the 2017 Starbucks Philippines Planner for your mom, ate or kuya, or give them the freedom to choose to buy what they like with a pre-loaded My Starbucks Rewards card.


Next time you visit any Starbucks branch to get coffee or meet with friends, check out the merchandises and you might find the gift to give to share the joy of the festive season.
