The Starbucks 12 Days of Gifting starts today! Starting now (December 1, 2012), for the next 12 days, Starbucks stores will feature promotions and discounts which are just for that one day only. Starbucks has done this for several years in a row, and it's always a lot of fun. You might find some good deals on Christmas presents/ holiday presents, or a present for yourself! Thank you to Amy in Boston, who brought it up (including a link) in the comments on the blog article about holiday food. So here is what to look for over the next 12 days! (This is compiled from some Google searches, and not official Starbucks information).
