What’s more basic (and absolutely necessary) than adult coloring books and pumpkin spice lattes when the leaves turn from green to yellow?

This fall and winter, all Starbucks is missing is Ugg boots in its seasonal advertising campaign that is sure to tug at the heartstrings of any person who rightfully enjoys being a little bit predicable when it gets cool outside.

Guests will get to enjoy their favorite holiday lattes in a festive cup that does not seem to be controversial like the ones in years’ past.

Starbucks is letting guests design their own holiday cups this year with their Give Good DIY collection.

The cups, designed for warm drinks, are white with outlined drawings of symbols of the holiday season: gift boxes, bows, snowflakes, warm mittens and mini coffee cups.

There is some color on the cup — green and red are sprinkled throughout, but most of it is an open canvas so guests can fill it in however they see fit.

“How you make it special is up to you,” the company said on their website.

Starbuks is asking customers to share photos of their cup on social media with the #givegood hashtag.
