What do you get for the Star Wars geek who has everything? Well, of course, you buy something unique and handmade and then casually point out that he didn’t have everything, until now. For instance, you could buy one of these two sets of coasters. Are you going to tell me that coasters are boring? What about slate coasters carved with the symbols of the Empire and the Rebel Alliance? Or a set with a beautifully carved version of the skull on Boba Fett’s armor? Yes, these two awesome sets handcrafted by Blyth House Creations are an incredibly unique gift idea for Star Wars fans.
The four coasters are cut from a single slate tile, ensuring that all four of them look similar enough as part of a set. The designer sands them, finishes them, and hand-carves them with a beautifully-done design leaving a light grey symbol on the dark slate background. The bottoms are also padded with foam to ensure the 4″x4″ slate squares don’t scratch up your table. If you’re a fan of the Star Wars series, it’s hard to think of a reason why you shouldn’t replace your coasters with these. And if you don’t have any coasters to begin with, it’s a no-brainer!
Onto the designs, the first set features the Imperial and Rebel logos that most fans should be able to identify right away. If not, they’re classic enough that they’ll at least look pretty and not be a confusing eyesore. The second design, on the other hand, is more for super-fans. This skull-shaped design looks more like something from Diablo or perhaps some sort of morbid rune. Fans of bounty hunter Boba Fett, however, should recognize this as the Mandalorian skull design adorning Fett’s left shoulder. While the logo coasters would look great just about anywhere, I think the skull ones would look fantastic in a gaming room, especially to add ambiance to tabletop games like Dungeons and Dragons or, of course, the Star Wars RPG.
These sell out regularly, so make sure to check the designer’s shop for new stock. You can nab a set of your own for only $26. Or if you’d like to check out other Star Wars goodies for your home, you may like the Death Star Cookie Jar or perhaps an R2-D2 Vacuum Cleaner.
