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 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.
