Camera - Chances are good that a 19-year-old would really like a great camera. A digital still camera with a 5X optical-zoom lens and a 3-inch LCD screen might be just the thing. An optical stabilization and 1 GB of memory helps produce professional looking pictures. The camera should be light-weight and run on a rechargeable battery.


Portrait - Nineteen is the best age ever to have your portrait painted. Surely you want those flashing eyes, that firm jaw and that dashing nose immortalized on canvas. There are excellent portrait painters in every price range. You can find first class portrait artists through galleries and at art schools.

Telescope - A telescope gives you a fascinating bird's eye view of constellations and stars. Most telescopes today are computerized and many come with GPS to let you know your position in relation to the stars. The built-in software makes it easy to identify celestial bodies. A gift like this can provide years of enjoyment.

Jewelry or Accessories - Now here is a gift to bring a smile to the face of any 19-year-old. For a girl, a pearl necklace or a necklace of gold beads is a gift of simple elegance. Later you may want to add to this a pair of matching earrings or a bracelet. For a boy, a pair of gold cufflinks engraved with his initials might be exactly what he wants. Or, consider giving him a waterproof watch that shows the time, date and day and is equipped with an alarm.

Travel Radio - This is a great "friend" to bring along on a trip. It is a welcome companion when hiking, boating or traveling. An excellent travel radio includes an AM/FM radio, cell-phone charger, and flashlight. The radio should be hand-powered as well as run on batteries and electricity. This radio should be fairly light-weight and it should slide easily into a backpack or carry-on luggage.

There you have it: some top gifts for a 19-year-old's birthday. Remember that whatever gift you choose - food, a book, a camera, a calculator, a CD, or an adventure vacation - it will be a hit. Most of all, have fun at that 19-year-old's birthday party.
