25 Delightful Thank You for the Donuts Messages

Donuts are a delicious treat enjoyed by many. Donuts are a common treat shared at office kitchens or brought meetings.  I’ve also attended churches where donuts are available before each service.

Whatever the occasion, it’s polite to say, “Thank you for the donuts.”

Did you know that more than 10 million donuts are made annually in the United States? And there are several National Days dedicated to donuts:

  • National Donut Day – First Friday in June
  • National Donut Day – November 5
  • National Cream-Filled Donut Day – September 14

Quick Donut Notes: 

  • Is it doughnuts or donuts? You can read the history here, as either spelling is acceptable. I’ve chosen to use the more modern spelling of “donut,” as that is how I would typically write it. If you prefer “doughnut,” you can spell it that way in your thank you message.
  • If you feel like adding a funny donut joke or pun to your note, check out the list here.
  • Remember that a simple, one-line thanks message may also be sufficient as donuts are, in many situations, shared with a group and not given as a gift to one person.
