I've got about 50 coasters from Germany from oh, 30 or so years ago that my boyfriend's Dad collected whilst living there. I took half of his collection away from him with the promise of making something for his "man cave" out of them, instead of them just sitting in storage in a plastic bag.

The problem I have is that all the ideas I can think of seem a bit hokey.

Any ideas?

Sounds like a nice idea, but you didn't mention if they are paper coasters for drinks, beers, etc. or ceramic.  My husband is from Germany and we have both kinds. We have a lot of the paper ones from pubs, and what I did with them was decorate a big cork board and display them there. This way, we both have the memories and it is so cute on the wall above where we display our German Steins.

They are all paper coasters
