Better Way to Glue

Gift Baskets

Gift baskets are a favourite choice when it comes to gift ideas.  They can be given anytime of the year regardless of the occasion as they allow creativity and customization for any given occasion.


It will take a bit of thinking and planning to create the perfect gift basket for your recipient.  Think about what the person likes to do, his/her hobbies, passions and interests.  Your basket can come in all shapes and sizes and contain all sorts of personalized items that the receiver will surely love.  Save money by creating your own and let your creative juices flow.

Preparation for Easy Gift Basket Assembly

  • Make a list of all the items that you want to include in your basket and pick a theme that will help you come up with things that you will put inside the basket. Examples:  cooking/baking themed basket, spa themed basket, coffee themed basket, arts and crafts themed basket, scrapbooking themed basket, DIY/Handyman themed basket, etc.
  • Take time to shop for the items and watch for other goods that you can add. Choose items that correlate to one another and with your chosen theme.

Note:  Use SQOTS™ adhesive dots to group and arrange the products inside the basket. This will let you produce baskets that look neater, arranged professionally, and the baskets will remain more firmly organised because the SQOTS™ self adhesive dots will be holding items in the basket together.


Be sure to use removable glue dots like SQOTS™ Tabs or SQOTS™ Sheets as an alternative to glue to secure your items in position – but can be easily removed later.


To Include in Your List:

Container – Choose wisely as the container you select will have a big impact on your completed gift basket. Let you theme dictate what container or item to use as your container.  Make sure that it can support the weight.

Basket fill – Do not be overwhelmed with the various types of basket fill available. Paper basket fill works best for filling empty spaces in the gift baskets. It is available in many different colors to fit any gift basket theme.

Styrofoam or florist foam – Use Styrofoam or florist foam to create the base for your gift basket contents. Styrofoam is less messy, but florist foam is less expensive.

Glue Dots – Glue Dots are invaluable part of gift basket assembly as they hold everything in place. They will stick to virtually any surface and leave no sticky residue when removed. When you buy glue dots, be sure to get high quality gluedots that can do the job intended.

Optional Items – like Ribbon, Shrink Wrap or tulle and Decorative Items – to give your basket that finished look.
