Calamityware is a small, eight-person, one-dog company headquartered in Pittsburgh. We love bringing the darkly whimsical view of our founder and chief monster-maker, Don Moyer, to life. Our products are high quality, meticulously manufactured items that make wonderful gifts for you and other weird-adjacent people in your life. Our goal is to make you smile.
All of my presents are the stuff of family mockery. Last year's artisanal pencils were shared with distant relatives, who all shook their heads. I think socks ARE romantic. Foodstuffs are compared with foodstuffs that are already in the house. When I watch the German submarine thriller, I am accused of buying the gift for myself. Every year, I fume about a double digit percentage of things in the world distributed by people like me who do not know what other people want.
But this time, I saw actual joy in my wife's eyes. We have filled the dishwasher with a spring in our steps because she wants to use the Christmas plates and mugs again. We are pretending to observe some less-familiar liturgical calendar so that we can keep calling now "Christmas". (This is being written on the first week of January.) We already loved the blue plates and mugs. When the holiday ware is boxed up, we will actually look forward to the race of time until some holiday is declared "close enough".
It is fun just to see how good all of this stuff is. Thanks!
This was the perfect gift. When shopping for the person who has everything, or has probably bought anything they really wanted already, you have to get them something that they might not buy themselves. They will come to appreciate this collection the closer they look, especially if they have a sense of humor or they appreciate yours. I couldn't think of what to buy. Then I thought; what would I like? And lo and behold, the Calamity Ware Christmas Collection. Especially funny (or ironic) since we've been having some real whoppers of bad luck here lately, but.... It Could Be Worse!
These are wonderful. I’m excited to have my mother, sister and daughter over for Christmas tea and cookies
These were exactly as advertised, of excellent quality, and are just funny and appreciated by everyone.
I bought the Things Could Be Worse Christmas Bundle as a gift. The recipients of the gift couldn’t say enough how much they loved it. Excellent gift.
The Christmas calamityware set is great Such a cute design. We got compliments every time we used it. We ordered it as a gift for ourselves , what a great choice!
I gifted the apron and two of the plates and mugs to my daughter and her wife for St. Nicholas Day. The first reaction was just thankfulness and then they took a closer look! They had so much fun with their gifts.
