Teens are tough customers on the gift front. Pleasing them is not inexpensive, but here are five ideas to thrill even the surliest in the bunch.  To make sure we've got everyone on your list covered, we're posting a new gift guide every weekday from now until Christmas. See all of the  Gift Guides  to date in our archive.   Above: For music lovers on the go, the new  Mini Jambox  offers big sound in a small and stylish package. The pocket-sized Bluetooth-enabled speaker (measuring 6 inches by 2.28 inches by 1 inch) is available in a rainbow of colors and works with any device that has a headphone jack or audio line out; $179.99 through Jawbone.    Above: Consider a traditional Cornish Barefoot Belly Board for riding waves, wakes, and even snow. And it doesn't hurt that it looks good hung on the wall; £40 at the Barefoot Kitchen. Above: For the shutterbug with a nostalgia streak: the  Polaroid Instant Print Digital Camera  offers Instagram-worthy digital images and retro Polaroid instant prints. Available in white or black case for $179.99 at Amazon.    Above: If you're contemplating jewelry, put cutesy aside. This soft  Leather Wrap Bracelet  is made in Portland, Oregon, for Alder & Co., and is available in black pebbled leather (shown), as well as gold- and platinum-finished leather; $50 each.   Above: Appeal to your teen's inner mystic with a box of Wild Unknown Tarot Cards . Beautifully illustrated, the mysterious deck of 78 cards comes with a guidebook to start your soothsayer on a card-reading journey; $40 at Spartan. Above: Looking for a stocking stuffer? Consider the glass  BKR Water Bottle , dressed in a silicone sleeve in inspired colors. Based in San Francisco, BKR's philosophy is "clean design, clean body, and clean world." Leakproof and available in 21 colors, 16-ounce bottles are $28 each.  Need gifts for younger kids? Have a look at  Handmade Presents for Children .
