You Are Here Christmas 2020 Glass Mugs

For some reason, I was hesitant to add this trio of Holiday mugs from the 2020 Christmas season to the site but decided that it actually makes sense to include them in the collection. In fact, there was no fair reason to not compare them to previous releases:
– they do belong to the “You Are Here Collection” and the boxes they come in look like other Christmas YAH boxes (see the pics below)
– their design is a revision of the respective city Christmas mugs from the previous years (see the comparison for Paris, London, and Amsterdam)
– there were no other Holiday mugs released for these cities at the same time
– these are 14oz mugs, the same size as other YAHs (see the photo of the bottom of the mug)
It’s worth noting, however, that even though they can be stacked with other YAHs, they are shorter (again see a comparison picture below).… Read more

You Are Here Christmas Glass – Amsterdam

You Are Here Christmas Glass Amsterdam is the third and last of Glass City mugs released in 2020. Similar to others, it’s design is based on previously released (2017) YAH Christmas Amsterdam. Interestingly enough, that was the only Christmas version of this city mug, as opposed to Paris and London that had two.
Again, when comparing two mugs side-by-side it seems that all elements match, except for their location on the mug. As an example, the Christmas hat has been moved from being closer to the handle, to the left of the front of the mug.… Read more

You Are Here Christmas Glass – London

You Are Here Christmas Glass London mug is very similar in terms of the design to YAH Christmas London v2, that was released three years ago (2017). The comparison picture below shows that apart from being made of glass the new mug brings rearranged points of interest from the city. Some were moved and seem to be reduced in size, others were altered, e.g. the Christmas tree replaced the regular-looking tree.

You Are Here Christmas Glass – Paris

So different, yet, the resemblance is there. You Are Here Christmas Glass – Paris mug shows a revised design of the YAH Christmas Paris v2 released back in 2017. It is amazing how fast time flies!
For your convenience here’s the side-by-side comparison of these two below. The changes are subtle: the snowman has moved closer to the title of the mug, certain landmarks became smaller, including the Eiffel Tower.

You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Sweden

To my surprise, Starbucks releases You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Sweden along with the regular ornament. For a country with only ten stores (all in Stockholm), it is great news! See these two ornaments below for a comparison. As you can notice, it is a giant Christmas Tree and a Snowman that were added on the front.
To my understanding, these can still be found in stores, so you better hurry up before they are gone.

You Are Here Christmas – Luxembourg

You Are Here Christmas – Luxembourg is the country mug from the past Christmas season. Even though Luxembourg is one of the smallest European countries, and according to Starbucks, it only has three stores, it gets both regular and Holiday edition mugs. You can see them side by side below (see this post for better pictures and the review of the design of the regular mug).

You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Turkey

A brand new release has just popped up online. This is You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Turkey which is the second Holiday mini mug from this country. The first one is the Istanbul ornament of course. And just as a reminder, it remains the only city Christmas ornament outside of the US!
As you can see from the pictures below, apart from the gold color, there are very few Christmas symbols on the new mug: only the hat and the gift box.… Read more

You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Norway

Just recently I’ve mentioned the release of the new mini mug from this Nordic country and we have its Holiday edition sibling Starbucks You Are Here Ornament Christmas – Norway hitting the shelves. For easier comparison, I’ve placed this new ornament next to the regular one and there is one interesting detail that I would like to point out. Apart from Holiday symbols added to the design, the shape of the Christmas trees is different on both the front and the back of the mug.… Read more

You Are Here Christmas – Ireland

Starbucks You Are Here Christmas – Ireland is the latest addition to the Holiday mugs family. As you can see from the pictures below, the differences with the regular mug are subtle: Holiday hats and gift boxes. I would also like to point at Santa Claus’s sleigh at the roof of the house (see the back of the mug). Speaking out of my head, I don’t recall this nice little detail from any other Christmas mugs.
