A preview of Starbucks Philippines 2015 planner (12th edition)–launching this November 3, 2014


Starbucks Philippines always surprise us every year when they are going to launch a new design for their limited edition planner. Every year the design is original and starting to be more creative. Years ago, when the planner started appearing in all Starbucks branches since 2003, we always complain about the design, the size, the cover, the paper and also its presentation. For the 12th edition of the Starbucks Philippines planner (zomg…12 years!) they did put a lot of symbolism anything that is Starbucks.

At first, its normal to hear about the annual launch of their own planner, many have followed their style, but Starbucks definitely stands out among other planners. It’s the most awaited and the most anticipated merchandise of Starbucks. Its hard to acquire this because you need to complete 18 stickers or buy bulk items or food in order to get a free planner (with min. of PHP7k purchase in one receipt)

I’m sure everyone will go crazy about the new design, others will just yawn, but for hardcore Starbucks fans, this 2015 edition is a must have and must own. I’m glad that the size and the paper is much better than last year’s version.
Get ready..because November 3, 2014 is the start of the launch of the 2015 planner in all Starbucks branches nationwide.

scroll down below for the PROMO MECHANICS on how to own the planner

Share moments of connection with your Limited Edition Starbucks Philippines 2015 Planner!

Here’s a preview from the launch last night.


At first, I am not excited about the new planner, but when I learned the quality and design of it, I started to love it and appreciate the design, its ART!!


After the presentation, I asked the Starbucks PH team about the gift wrapped cover of the planner, then they explained to us that its not a gift wrapped, it’s a custom made foil bag just like the coffee beans bag that they sell in the store. Its re-usable and can be your own envelope and cover for the planner


Chalk markers and highlight pen are FREE, it comes in every planner and the you can use it in highlighting a text or just use the chalk marker to write your name at the name tag plate of the planner.


Yes..you can write your name at the name tag plate, just like the name tag plate of the barista. Btw, the material used in the cover of the planner is the same material they use in all Starbucks apron.


Each colors symbolizes the nature of Starbucks, green is the original color, red is for the Christmas season, Black is…I think for the Reserve and then brown is…I think it’s the color of coffee.


Green is one of my 1st wants…. but


I like the brown planner because the apron got a special embroidered “Siren” character, the brand character used in all Starbucks’ logo. This time the Siren is now carry a hot coffee mug.

Here’s my some sort of unboxing hahahah.
