Dexter Blood Sample Coasters

Any Dexter fan will immediately recognize these slides of blood samples that our man stows away in his collection after each gruesome murder. Now, you can have your own collection of blood-stained glass slides to bust out when you have guests over, only these slides don’t bear the potential to implicate you for murder later down the line…because they’re just coasters.

My friend actually owns glass coasters just like these, only without the Dexter logo and the blood was a lot more soluble… I’m sure it’s nothing to worry about.

Sandwich Coasters

As creative and neat as this idea is, the FOODBEAST inside me would rather have a sandwich I can eat, not one to put my drink on. I have to admit though, it’s a pretty novel idea and if I can prevent my tabletops from being ruined by condensation rings, I might as well do so using the power of the almighty sandwich. The set comes with nine coasters that together form a pretty decent meal that the Eearle Jon Montagu would be proud of… if were actually a sandwich. ($10 @ SpoonSisters)

The Big Lebowski Paper Coasters

It’s summer and we all need to keep our tables safe from the moisture of White Russians and ice cold beers. Thanks to designer Ruff House Art, we get to smile at this set of 10 “Big Lebowski” letterpress coasters. Printed off a 1915 Hand Operated Chanler & Price press, each design is printed on heavy coaster stock paper with plenty of nostalgia from the 1998 film starring Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, and Steve Buscemi.

I wonder if The Dude would be proud? Each coaster is 4″ round and get shipped in a clear protective box. ($12 @ Ruff House Art)

Toast Coasters

Scaled to look like toasted bread, made of cork by Brazilian artist Patricia Naves, these toast coasters (trivets) come in  “side order” (2 pieces) or “half loaf” (6 piece) varieties. The 6 piece set is wrapped like real bread. Good look coming home on a drunk night and deciphering real toast from coaster toast. Each piece sits approximately 4″ x 4″ x 3/8″. Available for $14 and $38 at Shoptwine. (Via IncredibleThings)
