One in three presents bought online this Christmas will be technology-related - and kids will get most of them, according to a survey by Dell.
The survey discovered that games consoles (12 per cent) will be the most popular technology gift bought online, followed by computers (nine per cent).
Around a third of techie gifts will go to children, but spouses and partners also have a 13 per cent chance of getting a PC, printer, PDA or other technology/electronic gift.
More of the UK population is turning to the internet for shopping, with 26 per cent of the Dell survey's respondents saying they would definitely or probably shop online this Christmas.
Three-quarters of those who did not buy gifts online in 2001 are planning to do so this year.
"Christmas shopping online is more popular than ever. This could be because people are increasingly finding it easier and less stressful than the high street," said Simon Calver, general manager of Dell's UK home and small business division.
Online security was listed as a concern by only one in 10 people.
