The Battle of The Christmas Cups 2015

The sleigh bells ring. Are you listening?

Yep, it’s that time of year again, Christmas is coming! And I for one can’t wait!

I’m a HUGE Christmas fan, everything and anything Christmas and I’m a happy girl. I love the films, the music, the decorations and the food! …Oh the food and drink – yes, for me, a big part of Christmas is the yummies.

So this week, I’ve been uber excited to see the arrival of the Christmas cups. You know, the ones that mean all of a sudden your caffeine and hot drink intake doubles, just so you can hold one. (And probably take an arty picture for Instagram too!)

So in case you missed them, here’s the designs released by the BIG three for Christmas 2015…

No Christmas would be complete without the red cups now would it?! And this year the Starbucks special is very…red. I must admit, I was a little bit disappointed with these, where’s the festive design? Where’s the snowmen, the snowflakes – the Christmas scene? In fact, where’s anything Christmassy?! Perhaps Starbucks were short on their design budget this year and had to keep things simple…but just plain red? Boo!

Now this is more like it! I loved last year’s designs, the were probably my all-time favourite Christmas cup design, so I thought they would be hard to beat. But Costa have done it again, they’ve combined creative, fun and cute altogether and I for one am very impressed with these. AND when you hold them up to drink, you’re going to be able to use them as a fun photo prop too – win/win!

Oh HELLO cuties! These cute looking Christmas characters have already won my heart. Sweet, simple and totally up my street. So sweet are these festive cups that I wouldn’t be ashamed to be seen sporting these on my morning caffeine run. McDonalds you did good.
