Honey with an edge

This is one of the more unusual suggestions we have received for a Stocking Stuffers idea, but it’s pretty irresistible: Teresa Beaton of the band Mother Teresa & the Sinners said in an email, “We have joined forces with Gerald’z Honeybees and have our own line of honey.” Who wouldn’t enjoy getting a holiday gift of honey with a name like “Sinful Decadence” or “Divine Indulgence”? Throughout the holiday season, we are offering suggestions for gifts of $20 or less, available at local merchants.

Names of the merchants: Mother Teresa & the Sinners and Gerald’z Honeybees

Item: Jar of honey, or a jar of honey and a T-shirt

Price: $10 or $20

This is a perfect gift for: Who doesn’t like honey?

About the merchants: Mother Teresa & the Sinners is the 2013 Modesto Area Music Association Award-winning jazz and blues band. Gerald’z is a Livermore-based beekeeping operation.

Pertinent info: Website, You can order by sending a message on the band’s Facebook page, or call Beaton at (209) 277-5698.
