Starbucks has created a tradition of unveiling its red holiday cups to signify the "beginning of the year-end festivities." Each year the beloved coffee brand uses creative graphics and symbols to reflect the festive final months of the year.

However, this year’s red holiday cup is just that -- red. There is nothing on these minimalist cups aside from the brand’s logo. The cups is simple yet elegant by using a faded ombre effect that changes from a bright red into a deep cranberry hue. This simple design is a great way to ensure the cups are culturally and religiously inclusive.

The brilliantly minimalist red cups project the season’s spirit in a clever and creative way. These cups will be hitting coffee shops in the United Kingdom on October 22, while the rest of globe will have to wait until November.
