Gift Baskets

Now that Christmas season is just around the corner, we often see gift baskets all around – from the supermarkets, pharmacies, bookstores, boutiques, malls, department stores to name a few.

Gift baskets are a good showcase of gift suggestions and ideas that help move merchandise.  But a lot more than this reason, gift baskets never go out of style as they are an all season – all time favourite.

Last week is the first time I tried my hands on putting together a few gift baskets and I found the assembly very engaging and fun.  It is not as hard as I imagine it would be, especially because I have most of the stuff I would need, not to mention the SQOTS™ assortment of products within reach.  These square dots of glue are now my preferred glue (alternative to glue) due to their versatility, ease of use and “no fuss, no mess” approach.

I have assembled 3 themed gift baskets: 

toy gift basket, spa themed basket and snack gift basket

Materials Needed:

  • Baskets or containers
  • Basket fill – the content based on your theme
  • SQOTS™ Tabs or SQOTS™ Sheets – to keep the items from sliding
  • Styro foam or small boxes
  • Optional Materials – clear plastic, ribbons, and decorations

Below are some pictures I have taken during the assembly.  Arrange the basket fill using SQOTS™ Tabs or SQOTS™ Sheets as these are removable (see image below) and do not leave any residue.  The SQOTS™ Clear Square Dots or Tiles of Glue are strong enough to hold the items in place and keep them from sliding.





SQOTS™ is repositionable for a good length of time making it possible to carefully remove the items from most surfaces after many days; As with all SQOTS™ and SQOTS™-Tape application you will need to do your own tests to insure the products are suitable for your surface and application. If in doubt, you can always apply your work to Glass or surfaces that cannot have their surface damaged.

The SQOTS™ range of products, which we describe as dots of glue, square dots of glue, tiles of glue, square self-adhesive dots and other phrases that have the words dots or glue, is not affiliated with or associated with any dots of glue manufacturers, representative, affiliates or websites promoting or selling their products with trademarks or trade names that include or consist of the common phrase description “glue dots”.
