Not sure what to buy for that teen guy on your list? Here are my top gift ideas for a teenage boy for this year. Get one for your boyfriend, your brother, your son, that handsome guy in the mirror, or any other teenage boys lurking around you this season.

1. Madden NFL 11

Stocking up on the latest Madden game is almost as timeless as football itself. Get your teenage guy the new version for 2011, with improved graphics and updated team rosters.

Buying a boy an article of clothing might sound like a no-no, but hoodies - especially primo ones from American Eagle Outfitters - are so universally worn and loved that you can't really go wrong with one.

Shuffles are so portable and easy to use, even guys who already have iPods could use one. They're especially useful for athletes who need a quick fix for playlists while they're working out.  The latest version comes with a clip and a VoiceOver button that tells you the song title and artist.

Perfect for the sports or music fan in your life, this scrapbook has room enough to store all the concert and ballgame ticket stubs - or even movie stubs - for all his teen years.

6. Caster Board

Caster Boards fall somewhere between modes of transportation and plain old fun. With enough practice, anyone can get good at riding them, but teen guys who are already into skateboards or extreme sports will probably get the biggest kick out of this.

7. Alarm Clock on Wheels

This alarm clock jumps off of your night table and hides if you try to hit the snooze button. That makes it cool, functional and devious - three qualities that teen guys can really appreciate. Pick one in a color that matches his room.

Teenage guys like to preserve their memories like anyone does, and if they can do it in a frame with an LCD screen, a remote control and a headphone jack, even better.

And finally, for all the musically talented time-wasters out there:  they're tiny drums.  That you play with your fingers.  And they come with a playback function.  What else is there to say?
