How to Celebrate Donut Day Recipes and Donut Gift Ideas

Did you know June 2 is Donut Day! Let’s get realistic though, do you really need an excuse to eat a good donut. Do you prefer cake or fried donuts? Growing up in the midwest, I am definitely a cake donut gal. In fact, when I learned you can bake them in donut pans I have had fun creating some unique flavors for the family. They are baked so no guilt, haha. Thanks to PAPYRUS for providing us with some unique Donut Day Gift Ideas. This post may contain some affiliate links. 

For your sweet Donut Day celebrations, first, make some homemade donut recipes like these Simple Cinnamon Baked Doughnuts Recipe or Triple Chocolate Coffee Cake Donuts Recipe and who can resist these fried short cut Peanut Butter Jelly Donuts.


Not only did I want to share delicious donut day recipes but some fun gift ideas too. All of these Donut Day ideas can be found at one of the 200 PAPYRUS locations in the US and Canada as well as online at
