Gift Guide: KCP Edition

By: Nikki McCool, Fall 2018 Intern


Christmas is one of our favorite times of year here at KC Projects PR! I mean who does not love the decorations, the Christmas sweaters, the parties and, of course, the GIFTS! Buying gifts for our family and friends are easy (that’s what gift cards are for), but what about impressing our co-workers when it comes to office gift exchanges?

Let’s be real, we spend time with our co-workers five days a week, morning to evening. Our co-workers have became some of our closest friends and our go-to for advice on food, fashion and the professional realm so they deserve a gift that will knock their socks off! Finding that perfect gift for a coworker, whether she is the girl boss, the glam girl, the new girl or the intern, is a challenge, but we have created this gift guide to help!

This KC Prōjects PR Gift Guide features some of our favorite local spots for gifts that are sure to win you the title of office MVP! Ready, set, GIFT!
