The new Starbucks holiday line offers sparkly cold cups, mugs and tumblers aplenty. Here's a preview of the products!

The most wonderful time of the year is almost here—and by most wonderful time, we mean the months that bring us the Starbucks holiday line. Sure, it also brings fun holiday traditions, special foods and gifts aplenty; but for the Starbucks-obsessed secret-menu aficionados among us, the unique cups and mugs are a cause for celebration all their own.

The holidays have arrived a little early with this sneak peek of the coffee chain’s iconic drinkware offerings, and holy moly, we can’t wait to get our hands on all of it. Here’s what to expect.

These Aren’t Your Average Holiday Cups

When you think of holiday coffee cups, you probably think of bright reds and greens, and maybe a Santa hat or two. Well, Starbucks has thrown all of that out the window with this exciting line. It’s stocked with bold shades, iridescent sheens and non-traditional holiday hues.

Perhaps the most classic-looking of the bunch is the cold cup, which blends shades of pink, green and red in a swirling pattern; there’s also a pearl ombré tumbler with the same colors. These are holiday-themed if you’re really looking, but they don’t scream “December!” If you want to add them to your collection, they’ll cost $18.95 and $16.95, respectively.

There’s a jaw-droppingly gorgeous iridescent tumbler that incorporates a shiny, ombré blend of purple, blue and pink, which you can bring home for $27.95. In that same oh-so shiny realm, there’s also a glittery purple water bottle, a black mug with a rainbow sheen and a grid-patterned, pink cold cup.

Our Personal Favorites

One other super cute piece of holiday merch is the clear mug with the candy cane handle. Considering how cute this one is, it may be a little harder to find in stores, and by a little, we mean a lot. Cups this cute typically disappear within the first week, and since Starbucks has already rolled out their 2020 holiday menu, you’ll likely have an easier time finding this one at Target locations or less trafficked Starbucks locations.

Judging by the size, this mug can likely only hold a Grande-sized latte at most, but that’s just what we need, considering the budget-friendly pricetag. You can pick this guy up for only $9.95

Another fantastic, wintry item at Starbucks this year is this gorgeous iridescent Christmas woodlands mug, decorated with all the colors of the rainbow, as well as trees, squirrels, birds and a beautiful white and pink deer. This mug is an absolute must-have for the season, and you can snag yours at your nearest Starbucks location for only $12.95 this year.

The mug holds about the same as its candy cane counterpart—a Grande-sized latte of your choice.

Finally, we’re taking a plane to South Korea to check out their Starbucks merch! Starbucks Korea is selling one of the most adorable cups we’ve ever seen—a reindeer cup (inspired by Rudolph, of course!) complete with straw antlers and a cozy sweater.

This cup holds 16 ounces, or a Grande, of your favorite hot or cold drink and is available on eBay for around $45. It sounds like a steep price until you see how cute it is! We’re definitely stocking up.

When Can I Buy Them?

If you’ve already cleared out some space in your cup cabinet for these beauties—or you’re planning to drop some hints that they’d be a great gift for you—you might have to wait a little while. There’s no official word from Starbucks on when they’ll drop, but if you’re really desperate to start ushering in the holidays, you can always pick up some eggnog-flavored ice cream from Walmart.
