Ban.do and Starbucks celebrate the holiday season

Brands release a collaborative limited-edition gift set.

A brand new holiday collection is coming this season to Starbucks stores thanks to a new partnership between ban.do and Starbucks.

The limited-edition collection is available Nov. 2 in select Starbucks locations in the U.S. and Canada. The six-piece assortment consists of a collectible ornament, drinkware, plus notebooks and a pencil pouch for holiday gifting.

The pieces feature two patterns: floral, ban.do’s feminine take on the holidays with foils and sequins; and phrases, printed with festive holiday slogans made from ribbon-like typography.

"The spirit of gifting is a huge part of who we are as a brand, not only because a lot of our products make great gifts, but because gift giving promotes togetherness and thoughtfulness, which are two huge parts of our brand philosophy," says Ali LaBelle, creative director of art and design at ban.do, in a release. "We wanted this collection to feel festive regardless of what you celebrate. We've also never created an ornament before, so it was really exciting to design something as iconic as the Starbucks holiday ornament."

Ban.do and Starbucks first partnered in Summer 2017, launching a collection within the Asia Pacific.

"Ban.do celebrated 10 years in business this year, so it's been a year to be thankful for. We're lucky to be in the gift industry which celebrates people and to team up with Starbucks to kick-off the holiday season is a dream!" says Lana Hansen, chief growth officer at ban.do. "It's an honor to have Starbucks' ongoing support to create these special moments for our communities at such a meaningful time of the year."
