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

The linen notebooks we’re surprisingly challenging to find at a cost below $35 and/or available in quantities larger than 10+. We did find a soft cover book that could be printed with logo for $17 which was the lowest linen notebook price with logo incorporation we could find. If you’d like to move forward with the notebook order I would like to bring samples of the notebooks by prior to purchase to ensure they meet the quality you’ve envisioned. Aside from the notebook included in the proposal I pulled together a collection of notebooks that are not linen but similar and I believe will look beautiful in your gifts.

gift on demand service

Are you in need of gifts on a revolving basis but you don’t necessarily meet our minimum of $300 or 6+. 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.

  • We will then invoice you for a pre-determined amount of gifts

    • 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

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

$10 flat rate per gift

Kansas City Box covers a small percentage of your shipping for you.

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 request 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 destination.

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).

referral program

Join our referral program for continued discounts.

For every corporate or wedding referral which becomes an order of $500+, we'll give you a personal credit of $25, any order $1000+ we'll give you personal credit of $50, $1500+ is a credit of $100 and so on. I don't have the digital platform available quite yet which will show your rewards so for now if you ever want to know your balance or cash in you can just shoot me an email! 

Currently you have $25 in credit.


As a recap - This proposal incorporates a few examples of full service and partial service client gifts including specific custom items requested from our in person meeting. The entirety of our proposed gift includes all custom design work between $30-$120 These gifts are in no way set in stone and we can accommodate or adjust any products or budget as you see fit. 

Thank you so much for reaching out and taking time to consider the Kansas City Box for your custom gifting. We would be incredibly honored to work with you to create your gifts!
