Goal of a long term partnership between our two companies, rolling basis gifts at approximately 3-4 vendors a month and brides as they book


Brides: $50 Max

For your interest in a long term partnership and/or rolling basis gifts I’ve created a proposal that outlines a few ideas while also our gift on demand service, outlined below

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.

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).
