Starbucks x LINE FRIENDS
While LINE FRIENDS first originated from Korea, it’s safe to say that these adorable characters have been taking over the world. Exclusive collabs such as with Maison Kitsuné and Minions were launched early this year. This time round, LINE FRIENDS has teamed up with Starbucks for a Christmas collection, featuring the familiar faces of Brown, Cony and Sally.
If you’re looking for a practical gift for your secret santee this year, a tumbler is perfect for all occasions. The collection includes an all-white tumbler featuring Brown and Cony, cheerfully holding up mugs of their favourite Starbucks drinks.
If you’re a fan of Brown’s adorable poker face, get this Brown-inspired tumbler to perk up your mornings on the way to work. It comes with a red lid to represent Brown’s Santa hat to get us hyped for the Christmas season.
For those who are on a work-from-home schedule, you can opt for this Brown mug instead, complete with a silicone figurine of Brown himself sitting on the lid.
As we’re expecting to see more windy and rainy days in December, huddle up with your loved ones at home just like the characters on this water bottle. Decked in green hues and snowflake motifs, this cute design will motivate you to stay hydrated.
This collection also includes exclusive merchandise such as a canvas bag showcasing Brown, Cony and Sally going on a walk together. If you’re planning to explore new places in December while you clear your leave, take this bag along with you so the characters can accompany you on your adventures.
Match the canvas bag with this soft leather pouch in a similar design, serving as a convenient accessory to store your EZ-link card while you’re out.
Nothing beats cuddling under a cosy blanket with a mug of your favourite coffee or tea. This holiday blanket comes in a design of festive snowflakes and mistletoes alongside the LINE FRIENDS characters.
Unlike the standard Starbucks Bearista, LINE FRIENDS fans can now get a Brown-rista instead. Catch your fave bear character donning a Starbucks worker apron, looking ever-ready to serve coffee to his fans.
Take home a small memento of this collaboration with this Brown-inspired pen. It includes a Brown figurine on top, along with the Starbucks logo on the side.
Cold Cup collection
ICYMI, last month, Starbucks launched a new Cold Cup collection in green and white hues. For those who can’t get enough of these chio cups, the coffee brand is adding 2 new 24oz studded cups in pink and red. The Cold Cups are retailing at $39.90 each.
