If there’s anything—anything at all, that can take away the doom and gloom of Circuit Breaker week, we can definitely count on Starbucks to give it to us. Despite the heavy clouds that have been forming over our heads with each passing day, Starbucks has still gone ahead in pushing out their Summer Collection, and here’s why we should rejoice.
The answer is simple, really. Because everyone has been confined to their homes, the chances of you finally snagging that limited edition mug are looking positive, especially at your neighbourhood Starbucks outlets. But of course, don’t take this as the green light for you to start prancing around just yet. If you’re already heading out to get your groceries, a quick stop at the nearest Starbucks outlet to grab the merchandise can surely be arranged. But if you’re planning to pop by a Starbucks outlet that’s within a mall, then remember to slap on a mask first, or be denied entry. If you have doubts about where you can and cannot visit, consulting the Can I Go? page will be helpful.
Now enough with the chit chat, let’s get to what we came here for, shall we? In true summer spirit, the collection features a sprinkle of colour, and a whole lot of fruity motifs. Starbucks has long held sustainability in high regard, as we can tell from their past Stojo and reusable take out cup collections.
Now, we have reusable collapsible containers as well, for when you’re feeling snack-y. The Lexngo Collapsible FlexiBox (S$29.90) is available in 5 colours, and comes with a spork—an all-in-one spoon, fork & knife.
If you haven’t already had enough of cups, there’s now a set of 12oz stacking cups (S$24.90) that comes in 4 colours. Perfect for serving freshly squeezed lemonade to your guests.
Fruits, fruits, and more fruits!
Permanently stay in that holiday state of mind with these fun tumblers and mugs that are bound to keep your cabin fever at bay. And besides, every work station needs a pop of colour, right?
When life gives you lemons…
You make lemon-printed merchandise, of course. Fans of the citrusy goodness are sure to love these cheery yellow tumblers and mugs.
Tropic like it’s hot
Of course, any summer collection would be incomplete without the pina colada’s key ingredient—pineapples. Something tells me that these pineapple-silhouette bottles with matching carriers (S$29.90) will be an absolute hit.
Life’s a peach
Watch your favourite emoji materialise into a flask, bottle, or mug with the peach line. There’s enough pink in here for everybody.
One in a melon
In case you were looking for a cutesy gift to send a friend who could use some cheering up, this adorable Watermelon Starbucks Card is sure to do the trick. It’s yours at a minimum load value of S$10.
Share this with your friends and loved ones to give them something to muse over other than bleak COVID-19 news. And act fast, because we all know the incredible speed at which Starbucks merchandise always gets snapped up.
