The survey found that technology is the top-ranked category for gift giving and receiving. This is true for both millennials and men this year.

And no matter who you are, the iPad tops everyone’s tech wish lists. Apple’s iOS tablet is the number one item, though no specific model was highlighted, whether it’s the iPad mini 4, the iPad Air 2, or the soon-to-released iPad Pro.

The iPad was also the top response (at 19%) among people planning to self-gift themselves a little something this holiday season.

Windows and Android Make a Strong Showing

Number six on this survey of holiday tech wishes is the Windows 10-powered Microsoft Surface. Again, no model was specifically mentioned, whether it’s the Surface 3 or Surface Pro 4.

Android is also represented, with the recently-released Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 appearing at number nine.
