So, thanks to our handy round-up of the best smartphones for Christmas gifts on the market you should have that part of your Christmas shopping sorted. Now, though, you've got to think about tablets.
Everyone wants a tablet: they're easy to use, lightweight and portable, and more stylish than almost any laptop on the market. The trouble is the tablet market is even more confusing than the smartphone one, with manufacturers continually releasing new devices with the claim that their product is the one "true" tablet you need.
So, rather than spend hours in some high-street store having a seasonal Christmas worker young enough to still believe in Santa Claus try to guide you through the array of shiny devices available, let our guide, compiled by our own Three Wise Men, lead the way.
10. HP TouchPad
You might struggle to find a TouchPad as HP famously said it would stop making the device, leading to an almighty scramble to get hold of one as prices dropped to as low as £89.
However, this doesn't mean the tablet won't be available somewhere: eBay, Facebook market, Gumtree, tucked away at the back of some electronic stores in more remote locations. If you can find it, it's worth getting, especially if it's going cheap.
Because, despite HP dropping it faster than Usain Bolt running the 100 metres, it's a decent option. The webOS software offers a nice change from the ubiquitous Android interface and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.2GHz processor and 1024x768 resolution more than match other high-end devices.
Price: Between £89 and £250.
