1. Wrapping Paper - This design features “a colorful geometric pattern with sparkles and glitter grain in the season’s signature shades,” according to the company’s website.

2. Ribbon - Starbucks’ ribbon cup features white and glittered pieces of ribbon resembling the “moment when you have just finished wrapping up your gifts for your friends and family and look down at the floor to see ribbons all over the place.”
