It’s November already, which means one thing: the Starbucks holiday season is here and plenty of us are racing to collect stickers for the planner and the newly-launched travel organizer. As you all know, I’m a planner geek and have used one since 2005. It’s a useful tool for someone forgetful, and while I’ve tried the Calendar app, there’s just something satisfying about crossing off a finished task.
This year, Starbucks is offering four more versions in two variants: two planners and two travel organizers. Here’s everything you need to know and I’m doing my annual giveaway. I have a little surprise so make sure to read everything!
Both the planner and travel organizers are consciously made to lessen its impact on nature. The covers are made from purely natural substances coming from pre-consumer recycled cowhide fibers, and bonded by natural latex. The eco-friendly materials are sourced from leather factories in Valencia, Spain, a region known for artisanal leather tanning methods.
The inside pages are also eco-friendly. They are produced in a facility certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, an indepent organization that promotes the responsible management of the world’s forests.
So let’s get on with the planners and travel organizers!
Starbucks 2020 Planner
The 2020 planner comes in two colors: Berry Pink and Frost Gray. Both come in a hardbound leather cover with the iconic Starbucks Siren embossed. I like how the strap is thicker and looks sturdier compared to other planners with a thinner strap. Inside features the traditional weekly spread on the left and a blank page on the right for doodles. I personally copy the lines on the left and add the things I have to do each day, regardless of the deadline. Dividing the months are facts about coffee.
The Starbucks 2020 planner comes with stickers, a bookmark, and beverage vouchers that can be used in the store. Additionally, it comes with a suede pouch that feel luxurious to the touch. I especially like the Siren logo zipper.
Starbucks 2020 Travel Organizer
Meanwhile, the travel organizer looks so elegant. There’s a Neo Mint and a Coffee version, and both have a mini-notebook with grid, dotted, and plain formats perfect for journaling. Moreover, it has several card slots, spaces for a smartphone or a passport, and a pen holder.
Like the planner, the travel organizer comes with stickers, a bookmark, and beverage vouchers that can be used in the store.
