The 12-Days of Christmas might be one of the best-known carols, but honestly, who is still gifting their true love three boughs of holly or two candy canes? That’s why The Sandton Times has narrowed down the list to a few things that have caught our eye this year! It’s Day 9 of our Merry Gift Guide, as we countdown some of those must-haves for Christmastime, and today, we’re taking a look at one of favourite coffee treats this season: Starbucks!


The Starbucks Holiday menu is back with Gingerbread latte, Toffee Nut Latte, the return of the Red Cups, some brand-new Colour-changing cups and an all-new Caramel waffle latte. Starbucks also introduced the new Festive Reindeer Cookie made with milk and dark chocolate chunks flavoured with vanilla, drenched in butter and decorated with a face to bring miles of smiles – and it dunks pretty well too!

Along with this, the Caramel Waffle Latte crafted with a combination of Starbucks signature espresso, steamed milk, waffle sauce, and topped with spiced caramel waffle crunch and caramel whipped cream, is sure to be a hit, along with fan-favourites, the Toffee Nut Latte and Gingerbread Latte, available in-store in either hot or ice-cold variants!


Starbucks also has an array of Holiday themed merchandise, including reusable cups, magnificent mugs, twinkling tumblers and more. Dazzle your Christmas crush with one of Starbucks reusable Red cups or a new Colour-changing cup set. Best yet, if you take your reusable cup to Starbucks, you receive a R2 discount on your beverage.


If you’re looking for a gift that can give throughout the year, why not get that special coffee drinker amongst your family or friends a Starbucks eGift Card which you can send within minutes or set to deliver on Christmas Day.
