Red and green have taken over this October and spread into November in an early effort by companies to start their holiday advertising campaigns and introduce their festive packaging. Cosmetic makers, coffee shops, and cookie makers are just a few examples of companies participating in the eagerness to start the holiday season.


MAC just introduced their new holiday collection called Tartan Tale! They used a Scottish and British look to their packaging by using a plaid print. Although the red and green Christmas colors are not present in this holiday collection, MAC decided to use a different approach in spreading holiday cheer by using poetic new looks.The holiday collection encompasses posh, punk, ancestral, anarchic, noble, and royal glory.

Coffee shops are putting their spin on holiday cheer this season. Caribou Coffee and Starbucks have introduced their holiday decorated cups early this year. Two days after Halloween the red cups and holiday menu were launched for Starbucks. This holiday menu includes their famous eggnog latte, gingerbread latte, and Christmas blend coffee. Caribou Coffee has introduced their festive cups for the holiday season and has added some drinks to their menu including: spicy milk chocolate mocha, ho ho mint white chocolate mocha, and their reindeer blend coffee is back on shelves. Caribou Coffee also features holiday gift packs and sets.

Mrs. Fields, maker of delicious cookies and sweets, is sprinkling some holiday spirit into their cookie packaging this year. The holiday line includes customized tins, baskets, and reusable gift boxes featuring the signature red and white colors Mrs. Fields is known for. Snowflakes, snowmen, reindeer, and Santa are some of the holiday designs you can find in Mrs. Fields merry and jolly packaging.
