Grab the latest Starbucks trends on a budget. 

Starbucks who? We found some seasonal Starbucks holiday cup lookalikes that will save you cash, yet give you the same chic style you’ve had heart eyes for. 😍

Did you catch the latest Starbucks Valentine’s Day holiday cups release from earlier this month?

Besides delicious drinks, Starbucks has maintained a cult-like following every season when their gorgeous new cups hit shelves. If you’re a fan, chances are you know just how fast they fly off said shelves.

Unfortunately, their popular cups sell out so fast, many of us don’t even have a chance to get our hands on our faves and you’ll only find them being resold for three times (or more) than what they originally cost across various 3rd party marketplaces.

Luckily, we were able to source a few similar Starbucks cup lookalikes so you don’t ever have to pay Starbucks prices!

Check out these highly rated Starbucks holiday cup lookalikes we found:

1. Starbucks studded tumblers are a highly sought-after cup no matter the time of year.

The highly anticipated Starbucks studded tumblers sell out instantly every time they’ve ever released so it’s no wonder people are always looking for a great lookalike.

Amazingly enough, you can score a 4-pack at Walmart for under $20 with tons of colors to choose from! 😍

Looking for a matte studded Starbucks tumbler lookalike?

We also found some matte-colored 24 oz. tumblers at DSW for just $14.99 each! Who would have thought a shoe store had these gorgeous Starbucks holiday cup lookalikes just sitting around?! 🤯

They come in matte black, burgundy (shown above), purple, and light pink – all perfect for Valentine’s Day. If the studs aren’t your thing, they have a peach and pink ombré tumbler that’s totally got Starbuck vibes written all over it!

Plus, they’re available for store pick-up so you won’t have to pay extra for shipping, or you can sign up to become a DSW VIP member (it’s free!) and score free shipping on all purchases! 🙌🏻

2. If you’re lucky, you can find these under $5 heart mugs at your local Walmart.

Starbucks may have quickly sold out of these heart mugs, and Walmart can say the same about their trendy, new heart mugs considering their online inventory has been going quickly and you may only luck out with local store pick-up or delivery via Walmart+.

At just under $5 each, you can score two of these Starbucks holiday lookalike cups and spend less than the price of one.

Want to be slightly more adventurous with your new Valentine’s mug?

Target offers this adorable $7 leopard print mug that’s super stylish and could still pass for the perfect Valentine’s Day substitute. Of course, it’s a far cry from the trendy Starbucks heart mug, but if you’ve got a unique style waiting to be flaunted, this may be just the mug for you.

3. This gold metallic tumbler is a classy throwback you’ll love sipping from each morning.

This cup may be a 2012 throwback, but it’s still stealing the limelight on plenty of third-party sellers’ sites. Thankfully, you don’t have to splurge on these Starbucks finds either since Target offers one for under 10 bucks! 👏🏻

And if you want to complete your whole set, Target also offers a whole collection of metallic gem lookalikes which include wine tumblers, flutes, and more.

4. Starbucks color-changing cups are fun for all ages and are the most affordable lookalike.

Starbucks fans went wild when they first released these vibrant & fun color-changing cups. If you’ve been trying to get your hands on some, Amazon is the best place to scoop up an identical pack that also includes coordinating straws and lids.

Costco members can scoop up this 12-pack of color-changing and confetti cups for just $6.97!

5. Add some glamour to your mornings with a new shimmery glitter tumbler.

Get the same aesthetic with this highly-rated glitter tumbler on Amazon! It’s made of 18/8 food-grade stainless steel so you’re also not compromising on quality either. Even better, it comes in 20 other colors – including ombré!

I’m willing to bet you’ll flip when you see these Lululemon lookalikes! 😍

    Are the studded cups from Starbucks insulated? I have one of the Wamart ones and it isn’t and I really prefer an insulated cup. I might be willing to brave Starbucks to try and get an insulated version but don’t want to bother if they aren’t insulated.

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Yes. They have a double layer and are insulted, but not as well as the stainless steel ones. They keep cold things cold for longer, but not like a YETI.

    I got the red studded cups when they were in the 90% off isle at Walmart Christmas clearance. 30 cents per cup for me.

    Super cute for teacher gifts – insert a gift card and/or candy in there! ❤️

    • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

      Great idea!

  4. Beth

    Does anyone know if the Walmart studded cups have the “logo circle” that could be personalized ?

    • Sara (Hip Sidekick)

      Hey, Beth! Unfortunately, the Walmart ones don’t appear to have the blank logo circle. I did find this company on Etsy that does though! They also have just about any color you could dream of! Happy shopping!
