Study Buddy?

ONIM Front Caffeine Study Buddy

Does this fit someone you know? A student heading back to school, or perhaps moving away to pursue further studies? Or a professional who is frequently upgrading their skills, striving to reach a new level?

Caffeine Is My Study Buddy is one of many fun mugs from the Our Name Is Mud line. We frequently get a case of the giggles opening new arrivals from this company. Dishwasher and microwave safe, they are easy to care for and hold a full 16 ounces of fluid – caffeinated fluid in this case.

ONIM Back Caffeine Study Buddy

This is just another fun idea to brighten someone’s day. Why not take it one step farther and add a few coffee packets, some tea, or hot chocolate to supply a bit of study buddy caffeine?

Of course we have tasty treats to accompany any drink as well, like biscotti, Poker wafer cookies, chocolates, fudge, nuts, candy… you get the idea. We’re positively teaming with potential.
