  • Wash your utensil if you want and your gift is ready

**Depending on what utensil you decide to unleash your artistic expression, if its a rolling pin keep in mind that whatever indentations you make on the rolling part will leave a mark when the giftee uses it. So you may just want to stick to the handles the making marks on the rolling pin.
