What if we told you that there’s a pretty good chance that you’ll be getting a tablet from Santa for Christmas this year?

According to a study done by TechBargains, a website that aggregates online deals on electronics, tablets are the must-have items to get this holiday season. From over 1,200 customers that were surveyed, more than half said that they’re planning to purchase a tablet as part of their holiday shopping.

What’s the most desired tablet then? The survey reveals that over one-third tablet shoppers plan to buy the Nexus 7, with close to 30% choosing to purchase the iPad and 24% opting for the iPad Mini. The least desired tablets on the list were the Surface, Kindle Fire, and the Nook tablet.

So tablets are hot, great. But what are the odds that one will  mysteriously appear under your Christmas tree? According to the same survey, nearly half of tablet purchasers said they plan to buy the tablet as a gift for others, while only 34% plan to get one for themselves. Meanwhile, one in five plan to buy more than one tablets so they can make others and themselves happy.

We just have to ask now: Which tablet is on your holiday wish list?
