Starting last month, Starbucks Philippines’ Christmas tradition once again beckons with the release of the 10th edition of its Starbucks Planner for 2013.

For this edition, the theme is “Moments of Connection” which is very much highlighted throughout the planner. And why is this? Well, according to the country’s #1 coffee shop chain, Starbucks believes that “a shared moment of genuine connection over coffee is a simple act that helps provide an uplifting part of someone’s day”.  Well said.

The Limited Edition Starbucks Philippines 2013 Planner in three leather covers (white, green and black).

For starters, this Limited Edition Starbucks Philippines 2013 Planner is available in three recycled leather covers (white, green and black) and comes with a magnetic bookmark.

Making it even more special is that it has thirteen “kindness cards” with different Starbucks treats that can be shared with family, friends and loved ones. The kindness cards may be redeemed at any Starbucks store in the Philippines during specified periods in 2013.
