Help Spread The Word...

Our press kit offers assets located below that we hope provide everything needed to feature our products from The Manly Man Company and our non-manly brand Awesome Gifts Co., including: our origin story, logo, product photos, and videos. Don't hesitate to reach out at with requests for any other items or interviews to make your job easier.

What we offer

We make maped candied Bacon Jerky Roses dipped in dark chocolate and bouquets of Beef Jerky Flowers that are 100% edible, that are sealed and packaged in a custom branded box designed to enhance the experience when our bouquets shipped in pint glasses or beer mugs slide out and also to protect flowers during shipment.

We started this venture to solve a problem... there aren't any great guy gifts for all those occasions where flowers are appropriate but you need something manlier!   At some point on our quest to solve this problem the light bulb went off and our creation was born.... probably might have something to do with our brainstorm session snack choices of beer and jerky!

We thought our idea was cool... and a little bit crazy, which made it perfect!  We knew we liked it but never thought we would get as much attention and love for our products as we have received.  Our customers are incredible!!  We absolutely love our customers and that they have chosen us to help win their special gifting moments!!

Origin Story

The idea for the Manly Man Company came to Greg Murray after a simple conversation with his wife, for whom he had recently bought a bouquet of flowers: Why isn’t there a gift for men that’s equivalent to flowers? Yes, you can buy men flowers, but the practice isn't what you might call commonplace. The couple speculated that a bouquet of beef jerky might be the perfect stand-in. Soon after his wife surprised Greg with the very first iteration of what is now called “Man Bouquets”—sticks and sheets of jerky carved into the shape of flowers and roses, and presented inside a beer mug. Thus, the Manly Man beef jerky bouquets were born.

In January 2019 they launched a non-manly brand called Awesome Gifts Co., in response to overwhelming requests for bouquets anyeone can be gifted.
