Stocking Stuffers: Candles made in Stanislaus County smell good and travel well

pguerra@modbee.comDecember 9, 2013 

— We have enjoyed all of the “Stocking Stuffer” items sent our way this year, but we must admit we are a bit partial to those, such as today’s, that feature a bee in a starring role. Scoopy’s relative adorns a travel candle available at a rural Stanislaus County home and patio shop. Throughout the holiday season, we are offering suggestions of gifts for $20 or less, available at local merchants.

Name of the store: Ebb ’n’ Flow: Patio, Home and Garden

Item: Travel candles by TokyoMilk

Price: $12

Item description: Travel candle fans like them because they bring the smell of home to any far-flung destination. Of course, they also can be used at home, as well.

This is a perfect gift for: A traveler or fan of candles ... or bees.
