11 Ways You Should Most Def Celebrate National Donut Day

Written by Bryce

Guys, National Donut Day is June 2 and we’re ready to celebrate this holiday as the most important one of the year.

This is the future we were promised, one lined with happiness and holiday joy. We’re not talking about Christmas, people, we’re talking about National Donut Day, and it’s totally a real thing. This level of goodness simply cannot be made up, so we’re suggesting the most important, noteworthy ways to celebrate the holiest of carb-loaded days. Get your elastic outfits ready for the calories, although most of these items are perennial and won’t make you gain any weight.

According to experts, “National Doughnut Day started in 1938 as a fund raiser for Chicago’s Salvation Army.” Who knew eating donuts like a wild person could be in the spirit of giving back?

Literally every day can be National Donut Day with this mug

Imagine a secret garden of happiness and warmth just for your precious donut? Now imagine that real estate is next to your #blessed coffee. Amen, right? $14.99 here.

Or just wear this donutastical Care Bears shirt everywhere on June 2, because it’s your holiday

But honestly, is this not the cutest thing ever (aside from last week’s pink pineapples, obvi)? EVER. $29 at truffleshuffle.

Be super intense about it and get a pink pedicure with these donut-themed pedi spacers

Some genius out there really thought this holiday through, because they went as far as making donut-themed pedicure spaces. We are here for it. We’re clapping. We’re sitting back with popcorn pondering why it took so long for the universe to get us to this moment. $9.99 for a set of 8 here.

Donut bath bombs exist, so you can literally bathe in goodness

If you’re the type to sit back and bathe the holiday madness away, we feel you. National Donut Day may, in fact, be best celebrated in a hot tub filled with donut bath bomb goodness. This one is $12.99 by Arianna Skincare.

There are free donuts to be had in most major cities

Yes, kween, yassss! Free donuts all around, because both Dunkin Donuts and Krispy Kreme are passing out free donuts left and right to get you in the holiday spirit this Friday. There’s a chance this is funded by the drug companies that produce insulin shots, but since we’re not #fakenews, we can’t 100% say either way.

Light a donut candle to start the holiday off right

If your holiday custom is to light a candle, stock up on these, because OMG DONUT CANDLES EXIST. $21 at shopbop.
