Kansas City Box provides a refreshing new approach to corporate and client gifting. We create truly personalized, elevated gifts for clients of all sizes. Whether you’re a business of 5 or 5,000, we will design a gifting suite that fully captures your brand and leaves a lasting impression on clients, employees, vendors, and more.

Our team handles absolutely everything from start to finish. Real people, in our Kansas City based studio, sourcing unique local brands and products, designing branded collateral, hand packing, hand-writing personalized notes, and even taking care of shipping and logistics.

What makes us different from our competitors? In less than two years of business we've grown from a one-woman shop to a team that ships hundreds of gifts monthly, we have extensive experience in creating custom hyper-local gifts for all occasions. We produce many of our products in-house or in collaboration with over 70 local vendors. This allows us to offer virtually endless opportunities for customization and personalization, even at low quantities. We are equipped to handle screen-printing, wooden branding, engraving, letterpress - you name it!

We can incorporate your company’s branding into the theme or color scheme, branded glassware, apparel, accessories, artisan food items, stationery, collateral, and even private label items.

Whether you’re welcoming new employees, celebrating a holiday, launching a new product, or just saying thanks, we’ll create the perfect gifts, customized exactly to your needs and budget. You can just sit back, relax, and take all of the credit

GIFT ON DEMAND SERVICE

Are you in need of gifts on a revolving basis but you don’t necessarily meet our minimum of 6+ at once? Kansas City Box offers a gift on demand service which includes the following.

  • We will work with you to determine a set gift or gifting suite.

  • Once we’ve landed on your perfect gift suite we will invoice at a mutually agreed amount to hit corporate order minimums and act as your bank

    • This allows us to purchase your inventory at a greater discount and thus pass that discount on to you.

  • We will store all inventory and have gifts available for you at any given time

    • You don’t have to worry about storage or expiration dates of food items.

  • When you’re in need of a gift you can send us an email with the requested gift(s) and recipient info. Your gift will be delivered within 48-72 hours*

    • These gifts can be local or shipped delivery

    • Timeline exceptions apply to custom sketches which require a 2 week lead time.

Gift on demand service is most popular with realtors, photographer client gifts, wedding planner client welcome gifts, new member or new employee gifts, and those who have a revolving need for gifts and would like to receive bulk discounts but don’t necessarily meet the corporate gift minimum month-to-month.

Shipping Cost

We’re here to make your life easier! We want the gift giving experience to be a fun and enjoyable process. For this reason, we handle all logistics for you. We will create a Google Doc shareable between our 2 corporations or you may provide a spreadsheet of recipient addresses and any necessary information. If your gifts are going to one location we will contact the final destination and arrange for appropriate delivery and times. From there we individually hand pack each gift and individually track every package to ensure they arrive safe and sound at their intended destinations.

Shipping Modes

  • FREE Local Delivery for businesses residing within the Kansas City Metro

  • $10 Per Gift - Kansas City Box covers a small percentage of the shipping for you

  • Bulk Shipment to a Single Location - This price is dependent on the location of your corporation, denomination of gifts shipped to this single location, and weight. The average for this option is $5.00 per gift.

  • Freight Shipment - Freight begins at 100+ gifts headed to a single location.

Gift Concierge Service

Gift concierge service is available for any order over $10,000 or 500 gifts headed to a single location. For an additional fee, a Kansas City Box team member, the lead of your corporate account, or wedding planner will handle all gift logistics with the final destination including traveling to the location to ensure gifts are shipped in tip top shape, quality and integrity of each gift arrived intact, and the logistics of the shipped gift to the recipient goes smoothly. This service is most popular with large weddings and corporate events where hotel logistics are involved. The additional fee is dependent on number of gifts and location (within the continental United States).
