It’s a Wrap

Rafael de Cardenas Wrapping Paper for Nordstrom

A great present deserves a great presentation. So this year, skip the shiny ribbon. As a matter of fact, skip the glittery, snow-flakey, tree-tastic paper altogether in favor of something more contemporary—namely Rafael de Cárdenas’s gift-wrap collection. The architect and designer drew on his signature eye-catching patterns and show-stopping palette for the paper line, which features a swirling array of abstract geometries, all rendered in festive colors. The limited-edition wrapping paper is available on pre-wrapped gifts at select Nordstrom locations, where Cárdenas was invited to deck the halls of the Gift&Go boutiques.
