Pride is here!! While celebrating the LGBT+ community should happen all year round, June is official Pride month and the time for people in the community to celebrate their identities and for allies to bring LGBT+ voices to the forefront. This year, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM and GLAAD are once again teaming up and creating a Pride collection.
The collection features 14 unique offerings including a Harry & David Pride Month Gift Box, Cheryl’s Cookies Love is Love Cookie Card, 1-800-BASKETS Pride Artisan Iced Cookies, and The Popcorn Factory Tins with Pop Pride.
The Harry & David Pride Gift Box comes with a ton of snacks including dark chocolate Moose Munch, yogurt-covered pretzels, rainbow confetti drops, raspberry galettes, vanilla shortbread cookies, chocolate truffles, and a white chocolate-covered pretzel. It’s available on the Harry & David website and is currently $69.99.
If you want to celebrate Pride by sending something small to a friend or family member, Cheryl’s Cookies Love is Love Cookie Card is the perfect thing. Whoever you send it to gets a frosted heart-shaped cookie inside a colorful box. What’s better than getting a cookie in the mail? Each card is $6.99.

If you’re looking for a whole set of decorated cookies, 1-800-BASKETS’ Pride Artisan Iced Cookie sets are the perfect thing for you. They come in a set of 8 or a set of 5. The selection of cookies includes a rainbow cookie, a ‘love is love’ cookie, a pride heart cookie, a pride t-shirt cookie, a balloon cookie (so cute!!), a love cookie, a butterfly cookie, and a Pride heart cookie. The set of 5 is $36.99 and the set of 8 is $44.99.
The Popcorn Factory’s Tins with Pop Pride allows you to give a gift to someone who likes savory more than sweet. The tin includes three kinds of popcorn: butter, cheese, and caramel. They all come in a red and white-striped tin with a rainbow flag and “Pride” printed across the front.
The rest of the collection includes rainbow roses (these are absolutely gorgeous), more cookies, cake pops, a mixed nut crate, and a personalized blanket.
No matter what item you choose from the Pride collection, 20% of the net proceeds will be going straight to GLAAD to help with their media advocacy. You can also make a donation to GLAAD yourself if you don’t want any of the items in the collection.
Additionally, on top of 20% of the net proceeds, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Inc. is also donating $25,000 to GLAAD. Since 2007, the company has donated more than $200,000 to the LGBT+ advocacy organization.
