Just for Fun

Happy National Cookie Day!

Dec 04, 2020 | Seattle Pride

Just because this holiday season might look different, you can still spread holiday cheer – starting with cookies! Join us this National Cookie Day (Friday, Dec. 4th) by surprising those you love with something sweet. Here are some ways to make a no-contact cookie drop-off gay and bright!

Make a Homemade Batch

There’s nothing better than a warm homemade cookie fresh out of the oven and made from scratch with love. Venture outside of the traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe and try something with rainbows, like this rainbow slice and bake sugar cookie, or a classic Italian Rainbow Cookie!

Buy a Sweet Treat from an LGBTQ+ Owned Business

Tis the season to buy local – and even better if you can support a small LGBTQIA+ owned business! If baking isn’t your thing, this is a great time to find a store, café, restaurant, or bakery where you can source your cookies. We recommend checking out The Intentionalist to find a business where you can buy your cookies and feel good about who you’re supporting.

Package them with Love and Care

Nobody should feel comfortable eating random cookies in a plastic bag dropped onto their porch. Put in the extra effort and show your recipient that you care (and note who the cookies are from) by packaging them with love. It doesn’t need to be expensive – by delivering your cookies in a nice clean box or bag with a handwritten note and a bow (and ideally rainbows and glitter), your recipient will know you took the time to give them a special heartfelt gift. Make the effort to make it cute – it’s worth it!

We hope you’ll join us in spreading holiday cheer this National Cookie Day! And be sure to share your National Cookie Day surprises with us on social media by tagging @SeattlePride on Facebook and Instagram!
