Kansas City Box is a gift studio located in Lenexa, Kansas. We are currently partnered with over 108 local, small or independently owned businesses with a mission to create high quality and impactful gift suites sure to wow the recipient, every time.

Our gifts come with an informational insert outlining the local makers and shop small impact, customizable gift message and housed in sustainable packaging.

Gift giving should be an enjoyable way to celebrate clients, employees, and those who matter most in our lives. You select the gift - we take care of the rest!

Capture forever memories together with your family this season during your visit to Kansas City's Winter Wonderland, an open-air walk-through light display. Located just a stone's throw from downtown, KC Pumpkin Patch is the metro area's boutique family fun farm featuring seasonal activities throughout the year artfully designed to help your family create treasured memories that will last a lifetime.

As a veteran and family owned and operated small business, our farm is honored to bring your family wonderful opportunities each year. Guests can expect to enjoy thousands of enchanting holiday lights, wonderful photo backdrops and socially responsible guest appearances, and delicious treats & eats (including KC Wine Co. products for adults 21+).  A portion of the proceeds for the 2021 Winter Wonderland will benefit the Veterans Community Project in their mission to offer support to the men and women who've served our great nation.

Tickets will sell out quickly, so be sure to make your plans and grab your spot early. Open select dates 11/26-12/19.
