Fun Holidays in June

June 6: National Yo-Yo Day

Yo-yos are a beloved childhood toy. Some people have even created a career out of yo-yoing by doing tricks for parties.

Yo-yos are fun because anyone can play with them. It takes time to master the basics, which means hours of entertainment. If a person wants to learn difficult tricks, there are plenty of resources for them to look at.

In 1985, the yo-yo was the first toy to go into space!

Product Inspiration

Use yo-yos to create interesting pieces of art. Yo-yos are colorful and their strings can create interesting lines within your design. Have fun with it! After all, yo-yos are full of fun!

June 12: National Red Rose Day

Did you know that roses are the birth flower for June? Not only that, but June seems to be the most popular month for weddings. So, it makes sense a day to honor the rose would be in June.

History says that roses came from China during the Han Dynasty. Though they were more similar to the Hibiscus flower than the modern rose. As the flower was bred with other flowers in different countries, the modern rose was born.

While this holiday specifically celebrates red roses, roses come in all different colors.

Product Inspiration

Because roses are so lovely to look at, any product would work with a design featuring them. A comforter would be great because it’s a usable product meaning customers may be more willing to purchase it.

While we’ve been talking about red roses, you’ll have a wider customer base if you offer different colored roses in your design. You could even have the same design in different colors.

Comforter Details

  • Made of soft microfiber
  • Designs are printed on the front of the comforter
  • The back of the comforter is white
  • Made of 100% polyester microfiber
  • Available in 3 sizes: Twin, Queen, and King
  • Machine washable

Marketing Inspiration

Focus on image-heavy social media platforms like Pinterest, Instagram, and TikTok. Use ads to target people who are looking to decorate their homes. Use images that show what your comforter would look like in a bedroom. If customers can picture what the comforter would like in their home, they’re more likely to buy.

Father’s Day is a chance to thank any male role models in your life. People will let dads have the day off from chores, host barbecues, or just let dad have his way for the day.

June 20: Ugliest Dog Day

This sounds like a mean holiday, but it’s not supposed to be. Instead, it’s a celebration of dogs that people would call ugly.

Of course, to their parents, they’re the cutest.

Yearly, it becomes an internet contest to see who is most facially challenged and can get love from all around the world. There’s also a contest held in Petaluma, California to decide the “ugliest” dog. Whoever wins gets around $1600!

Product Inspiration

Use this holiday as an opportunity to play with how a dog is supposed to look. You can be more creative with limb proportions or have the dogs make silly faces. Then put your design on our pet beds! We have indoor and outdoor versions.

Pet Bed Details

  • The outdoor version is made of water-resistant polyester
  • The bottom of the outdoor bed is black

June 21: National Seashell Day

Celebrate the beginning of summer by going to the beach and collecting some pretty seashells. You can find so many different types by walking along the shoreline.

Product Idea

Have your customers stand on the beach every day with our comfortable bath mat! Use imagery of seashells on the beach, so customers can look down and pretend they’re on vacation.

In fact, you could create a whole bathroom collection that’s inspired by the beach and seashells. You can promote it as a collection so customers buy all your products.

Bath Mat Details

  • Come in two sizes 24X17 and 34X21 inches

Also, post plenty of pictures on Instagram to catch the attention of home decorators.
