For Starbucks lovers, the holiday season is one of the best times of the year as the company rolls out their Holiday Cups along with a seasonal Food & Drink menu. Here's a look at what is in store this holiday season at Starbucks.
Starbucks Christmas 2020 Cups
Starbucks Holiday Cups is back and this year’s theme, Carry the Merry, is an invitation to enjoy the little moments of brightness around you.
“When we started designing the cups over a year ago, we didn’t know anything about what 2020 would bring. Our mindset was about people carrying them out in the world as messengers of joy,” said Jeff Wilkson, Creative Director for Starbucks. “In a way that message deepened as we got further and further into the year. We want to be that beacon for people, a brief moment that they can look forward to.”

How many Starbucks Christmas Cups 2020 are there?
The team landed on the following four different cup designs, the same number as the first holiday cup collection in 1997.
This design features ribbons of greens and a jolly red like a cozy holiday sweater. Look closely and you’ll see the Siren’s crown, tail, and scales.
The dot design has stripes swirl around a field of Starbucks house green punctuated by playful polka dots.
This modern, scaled-up version of the ribbon design features bold bands of holiday colour and the Starbucks wordmark, designer street style.
This red cup has vintage vibes, with cutout shapes in green like glittering holiday ornaments.
The motif is repeated in a snowy white on Starbucks® cold beverage cups.
