New research from shopping website VoucherCodes.co.uk has revealed that the Apple iPad is top of the UK's Christmas wish list this year, with over a third – 37 per cent - of those surveyed wanting Apple's best selling tablet device.

In time for Christmas, Apple recently announced the ability to add a free personal laser-engraved message to your iPad via the Apple Store online. The company also operates a signature gift box service for an additional fee.

Apple took the top two slots in the survey with the iPhone 4 in second place with over a quarter – 27 per cent – of the vote.

Top 5 gadgets for Christmas 2010 according to VoucherCodes.co.uk are:
 
1) Apple iPad
2) Apple iPhone 4
3) Amazon Kindle
4) TomTom Sat Navigation
5) Sony Move

Microsoft's much-hyped Xbox Kinect controller free console took only 5 per cent of the vote.

"Dominating the top spots in our poll, Apple's products offer a multitude of functions without skimping on style," said Duncan Jennings, co-founder of VoucherCodes.co.uk.
