Koryu Books (http://www.koryu.com) just came out with a set of Kanji Mugs (http://www.koryu.com/store/mugs.html) with the Japanese characters for "bu" (as in "budo"), "ju" (as in "judo"), "ken" (as in "kendo"), and "jo" (as in "jodo"). I think these characters fit in very well in the aikido mindset. They look quite nice!

If you don't want to pay so much money, you can make mugs like that by yourself if you have an inkjet printer. There is a special transfer film available that lets you put any design on china, glass or metal. It works the same as with the t-shirt transfer films. After you have placed your design on the mug it is fixed in the oven. This is the only step that might need a bit of practicing to get the time right but in the end - you have your own and personal set of aikido / kanji /... mugs.
Another way for writing kanji on mugs are special china pens.

Have fun,
