A new Nielsen survey says most kids age 6-12 want an iPad most of all this Christmas. Most adults would probably rather have that than a new sweater too.
The new Nintendo Wii U comes in second on most wish lists, and then the iPod Touch and iPad Mini.
The price range on those gifts is $199 for the iPod Mini, to $499 for the new iPad. There are reports that most households spend on average, between $500 and $700 on Christmas gifts. If you buy a couple of the hot electronics, you're already there!
