A rolling pin is a piece of kitchen equipment that is very useful when it comes to flattening the dough. Suppose that you are making a ravioli; for this, you need flat circles of pasta dough. In order to smoothly flatten the pasta dough, it is best to use a rolling pin, so as to avoid any unevenness that may make it look unappealing. Of course, you would already know this if you are a chef.

This little analogy was just for the people who do not know much about cooking. If you are one of those people who barely have a clue of the what’s what of a kitchen, but you have a friend or someone in your life who is a chef, and you would like to express some love for, here’s an alternative way in which you could do so: gift them a handmade rolling pin!

Rolling Pin As Gifts

What is a gift? It is a way to tell someone that they are important to us, that their needs and wants, likes and dislikes matter to us. Giving someone a gift is a way of showing someone that you care about them. It goes that way for any present, whether you buy it or make it yourself. Going out to buy a present shows a sort of effort that you took out time to go to the store for a person and picked out something you thought the receiver of the gift would like.

That is a certain kind of intimacy. However, building something for someone, from scratch, as a gift, is a whole new level of intimacy. For chefs and cooks, a handmade rolling pin is a most fabulous and very intimate gift. Make a rolling pin for your loved one, who is a chef, for their next birthday or on the upcoming holiday. You will not regret it.
