I want to make a film night hamper for a family with girls these ages, any ideas of DVDs?

Cry baby, grease 1&2, mermaids or if they're brave then what about leprechaun?

Mama Mia

Hunger Games

Any Jane Austen dramatisations

Depends on their taste - I wouldn't do this as you could get it horribly wrong. My 14 yr old DGD loves the "In Betweeners" (it's a bit rude) and box sets of her favourite TV programmes "Outnumbered" - she also loves musicals but has probably seen them all - maybe find out what TV programmes they like to give you some clues.........

Some of the 80s Brat Pack films such as the Breakfast Club?

Yes to 80's classics!

I've bought 13yo Dd the naked gun, airplane, and mean girls.

I'd stick to films made before 2000 as less likely that they've seen them;

Legally Blonde
Clueless
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
13 Going on 30
Miss Congeniality
10 Things I Hate About You
the Craft

or try

Sunshine Over Leith

I agree with Mean Girls.

I think it's a tough one because, as NanaNina says, it's all down to personal taste. When I was 15, my parents bought me loads of DVDs for Christmas, such as Grease, Saturday Night Fever, some Meg Ryan boxset and a bunch other films I've forgotten. I've no idea what they were thinking because I hate Grease and always have! I, of course, was grateful but inside I was confused because I was into action and drama and horror.

I think if you can ask what they're into first then do that. And it also means you won't end up buying loads of DVDs they already have.

What about paying for a subscription to netflix instead? They'll be something for them all.

Pitch Perfect went down well in our house

BabyDubsEverywhere Wed 19-Nov-14 20:06:45

You really need to know what they like first surely? Would be a waste of time otherwise, at those ages pretty much anything could be on the cards. I remember being bought a load of chick flicks and teeny films when I had my first video player at 12, (insert 'old' emoticon here). Such a waste of cash, they were never even opened as totally not my thing!

Just ask their parents first smile

I was just going to suggest Pitch Perfect but it's already been mentioned.

How about:
Crossroads (crappy Britney Spears film)
Dear John
Bring it on
Dodgeball
Love actually
27 dresses
Hitch

They are all girly chick flick girls, thanks I have just had fun shopping on amazon for 80's films.
