Teenagers at Christmas

There are certain people who are always more difficult when it comes to finding a good thoughtful gift that they will enjoy. Generally teenagers, especially boys, are a tough lot, and if you’re trying to think outside of the electronics box doubly so.

When I was in high school I was pretty much married to my CD player so here are a couple ideas, and if these aren’t exactly right just spy on his or her mp3 collection and see what’s out there:

From Pieces to Weight – 50 Cent’s memoir recounting the story of one of today’s hottest rap artists and his rise from the streets to fame.

Keep Your Eyes Open – A photographic history of Fugazi, one of the most influential bands in indie rock / post punk.

Get In The Van – Tour Diaries from 1980-1984 written by Black Flag front man Henry Rollins.

The Vibe History of Hip Hop – From the Sugar Hill Gang and Grandmaster Flash all the way to the turn of the century.
