Pack of four glass coasters, £4, Dunelm (0345 165 6565, dunelm.com)
Made form glass and designed to look like a thinly sliced cross-section of an agate stone, these will make a stylish addition to any table. Coasters like these from other homeware brands can often be quite expensive, so at this price, these are a real find.
