When you were a kid, you might not have understood why your mom swooped in with a coaster whenever you put your sweating cup on the table. Now as a proud coffee table owner, you know. You know that sharp intake of breath you take when your friend puts their margarita directly onto your most prized piece of furniture all too well. You can almost see the water ring forming, even though seconds have passed. It’s like watching a horror movie. Your home is your sanctuary, and there are no water rings here. Coaster use is mandatory in your home or apartment.
Whether you’re shopping for new coasters or buying coasters for the first time, you want to find memorable coasters. Otherwise, water rings. If you have some of those boring, brown coasters, people’s eyes might glaze right over them. Even if they are directly in front of them. If you get some fun, novelty coasters, they can be cheesy, ironic or cleverly designed. They’re not going to be ignored. The coasters almost become a topic of conversation.
We found the best entertaining drink coasters for you. We found three very different coasters, one funny coaster, one that’s almost like a game and one throwback coaster.
