The Gift that Keeps on Giving

For quite some time, I have been trying to collect cards from Starbucks, even the ones that are out of the country. During my Korea trip last year, I've noticed that their selections were different from ours, so I made sure to buy each design (and have coffee everyday because it is so cold there). This year, I am very happy that Starbucks decided to launch different cards that are beautiful and Christmas-y.
