Starbucks feels almost synonymous with the holidays. Be it the stellar menu lineup of cold-weather beverages (like that delicious Sugar Cookie Almondmilk Latte) or the equally coveted Christmas merch, the chain presents itself as the natural destination for treats once December rolls around. Another festive reason many customers turn to Starbucks during the holidays? It's a popular destination for Christmas shopping.

According to the chain, one particularly popular stocking stuffer is the Starbucks gift card. So popular that the company expects to earn a whopping $3 billion from the sales of gift cards this holiday season, according to Restaurant Business. That's a whole lot of lattes and Reindeer Cake Pops that Americans will be gifting to each other this year.

There are several reasons why a reloadable Starbucks Card seems like a perfect gift. For one, it's an easy solution for last-minute gifts. The company anticipates that its gift cards will be most in-demand on Thursday—two days before Christmas. For another, it's the perfect gift for neighbors, co-workers, and other acquaintances, who may not be as easy to shop for as those in your immediate family and friend circle. In fact, gift cards are our nation's second most popular Christmas gift. According to the National Retail Federation, some 46% of Americans plan on buying some type of gift card this holiday season.

For Starbucks, the dollars loaded on gift cards equal major sales and are an important pillar of the business. In its latest fiscal year, the chain earned $12.6 billion in gift card sales, including new activations, reloads, and loyalty program points which are earned twice as fast via these preloaded cards. Moreover, those customers that forget to use up all of their preloaded cash are directly adding revenue dollars to the chain's bottom line. Restaurant Business reports that Starbucks recorded $164 million as such revenue in 2020.
