Santa’s Trek - Santa Star Trek stocking

If you've ever wondered how Santa manages to make it around the whole world delivering presents throughout Christmas before the kids stir, then this might well be the answer. Star Trek and jolly old Saint Nick have teamed up to deliver gifts at warp speed. Though we do feel that using the transporter to get presents down the chimney might well be cheating. We love this geeky stocking and the level of handcrafted detail on it is fantastic.
