Teen boys have to be one of the hardest groups for gift giving. Your gift has to be cool, and unique, while at the same time be something that they really want. But when you get a shrug of the shoulders if you ask them for ideas, you are left with no option other than to take a guess.
In order to help you with the guessing game, here are some great gift ideas for teenage boys that fit into the cool, and unique categories.
Surprise the teen in your life with a magazine subscription. Amazon has dozens from which to choose, including Sports Illustrated Kids.

Written for teens, the SIK focuses on the achievements of athletes, not the less favorable coverage that the adult SI provides.
