Boy Smells Slow Burn Scented Room Spray
Founded in 2016 by Matthew Herman and David Kien, Boy Smells produces candles and room-freshening sprays that ignore the gender norms typically associated with fragrances. The Slow Burn Room Spray combines traditionally “masculine” and “feminine” ingredients into a gender-neutral scent that makes your home smell incredible. This best-selling spray is a collaboration between Boy Smells and Kacey Musgraves and has a spicy and smoky aroma infused with black pepper and smoked papyrus.
Boy Smells makes sustainability a priority, responsibly sourcing materials like coconut oil and beeswax that are renewable and eco-friendly. Aside from the scents, this LGBTQ+ brand is beloved for its sleek, minimalist packaging and bold, vibrant colors, which adds a touch of modern elegance to any decor.
Bitchin Design Co. Gay Pride Mug
We love the unconventional and edgy designs from Bitchin Design Co. Featuring bold typography, graphics and vibrant colors, these prints, shirts and mugs make a major statement while uplifting your spirits. Sip your favorite morning blend in the Gay Pride Mug and its pixelated heart design. This handmade ceramic mug is dishwasher and microwave safe.
Additionally, hang one of their playful and occasionally irreverent prints in your home office for extra motivation. Grab a few for your friends and loved ones. At less than $10, they make fantastic gifts!

Wondercide Lemongrass Indoor Pest Control
Looking for safe, effective alternatives to conventional chemical-based pest control products? LGBTQ-led brand Wondercide has you covered. They produce a wide array of natural and holistic pest control solutions that are bad for bugs but safe for pets and humans. Formulated with plant-based ingredients and essential oils, the Lemongrass Indoor Pest Control is a natural, non-toxic alternative to a traditional pesticide. It repels and eliminates pests such as fleas, ticks, mosquitoes and ants.
Wondercide products are used indoors and out, creating a barrier that deters pests from entering your home or destroying your garden. They also cater to pet owners, producing flea and tick control products to protect your furry friends.
Wander Free and Queer Rainbow Garland
Wander Free & Queer is one of the many LGBTQ-owned brands on Etsy offering handmade items that celebrate pride with style. Their designs feature rainbow colors, LGBTQ+ symbols, slogans and positive messages that promote love, acceptance and equality. We especially love their handmade rainbow heart garland, which features crocheted wool hearts on acrylic yarn. Fully adjustable, it’s a beautiful addition to your home’s Pride decor.
Minna Large Palm Basket
One of our favorite home goods and LGBTQ-owned brands, Minna makes thoughtfully-designed ethical decor. Working directly with skilled artisans in countries like Mexico, Guatemala and India, all their accessories are meticulously crafted, melding contemporary aesthetics with traditional techniques.
Ethically made by palm weavers in Mexico, this large palm basket is a versatile hamper or storage container. Minna products are sustainable and made from natural, organic and locally sourced materials like recycled cotton and low-impact, non-toxic dyes.
Garsnett Beacon Candle Out Loud Candles
Garsnett Beacon Candles are made with carefully selected natural ingredients, like soy wax or beeswax, to create a beautiful glow with a clean and eco-friendly burn. Celebrate your pride with a design from their Out Loud collection, and customize fragrance options from Kettle Corn to Lemon Pound Cake. Moreover, like other LGBTQ-owned brands, this one gives back. A portion of all sales supports LGBTQ+ organizations, and an additional $1 from each candle sale supports The Trevor Project.
Lockwood Hexagon Marble and Mango Wood Coasters
Mackenzi Farquer opened Lockwood in New York City’s Astoria neighborhood in 2013 and has since expanded to six shops in Brooklyn and Queens. Filled with thoughtfully-sourced home decor, gifts and stationery, Lockwood focuses on local makers and small brands you’re unlikely to find anywhere else. This set of four Hexagon Marble and Mango Wood Coasters is a modern and rustic meld that we can’t get enough of.
