This periodic table mug has all the elements of a great gift for the coffee or tea-drinking intellectuals in your life. It’s available in 11 oz. or 15 oz. sizes and features a fully rendered periodic table graphic, complete with the catchy pun, “I use this mug periodically” spelled out below.

Marvel at the organization of the elements as you sip your morning coffee, or contemplate the processes and compounds that make such a beverage possible. In addition to the cheeky graphics, this mug is made with high quality ceramic with a glossy finish. It’s also microwave and dishwasher-safe thanks to the dye sublimation process, which bonds the image and graphics to the mug itself, rather than having them be printed on the outside of the glaze.

The periodic table mug, therefore, gets some credit for using chemistry to display chemistry, since the dye sublimation process wouldn’t have been possible without Mendeleev’s contributions to chemistry, including the famous periodic table of the elements.

The periodic table mug is great for coffee, tea or any other hot beverages. Available in clean black-on-white, this chip-resistant mug is an excellent gift for a science teacher, aspiring professor, or anyone who appreciates a good pun –especially if they’re also in any science or STEM career. It also makes for a comical graduation gift for the future doctors, chemists, biologists and other budding scientists in your life.
