Starbucks partners with Lance Bass on Holiday Presence Exchange

After the past year and a half, we have an even greater appreciation for the people in our lives who bring us cheer. The holiday season can be easily filled with distractions that prevent us from truly connecting – like never ending to-do lists and household tasks.

In partnership with singer and actor Lance Bass, Starbucks is transforming at-home coffee routines over the holidays into a shared moment to be truly present with the people you love.

Through the Starbucks Holiday Presence Exchange campaign, Lance and families from across the country are sharing their tips for making your holiday reconnections more meaningful this year, with the gift of shared presence and meaningful moments.

Lance created a series of activities and prompts that friends and family can do together in person or virtually over a cup of their favorite Starbucks® holiday coffee brewed at home, including:

  • Cheerful Conversations: What is a great memory we share? What makes it special to you?
  • Joyful Activities: Write a journal entry together about your year that you can come back to next holiday season.
  • Tips for Presence: Having a good soundtrack to your coffee chat can set the mood and help you connect. Don’t be afraid to put on some great music!
