All Britons want for Christmas are videogames and DVDs, according to a survey of the country's most wished for presents.

Superhero film Guardians of the Galaxy is the most sought-after gift this festive season, according to online retailer Amazon.

Hollywood blockbusters X-Men: Days of Future Past and Maleficent, inspired by the classic fairytale Sleeping Beauty, bagged the second and third spots.

Bookworms are most likely to want to settle down with the thriller Gone Girl, as the book which inspired a hit film by the same name is the fourth most-wanted present this Yuletide.

While videogames are also popular, with Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and Call of Duty: Advances Warfare - Day Zero Edition claiming the fifth and sixth spots.

The huge demand for merchandise from the Disney mega hit Frozen - the fifth highest-grossing film in Box Office history - shows no sign of abating.

Goodies inspired by the film appear in Amazon's 'most wished for products' lists across film, homeware, beauty and toys and games.

Xavier Garambois, vice president of EU Retail at Amazon, said: "Wish lists give a great insight into what's going to appear in millions of stockings up and down the nation this Christmas Day.

"For the second year running, Gone Girl appears in the most wanted chart, reinvigorated by the launch of the film, alongside the most recent releases in the Call of Duty, X-Men and Planet of the Apes franchises."
