This post is all about amazing 19th birthday ideas to celebrate another year of life!
Congratulations! You’re turning 19!
I vividly remember how much I panicked on the night I turned 19. For me, turning nineteen meant that I was entering my LAST year of being a teen. And that was soooo scary. I felt like I was mourning the impending death of my teenage years.
But hey, don’t worry. I was being dramatic as HECK. Because guess what! Life only gets better from here. Teenage years were great. But when you enter your 20s, you’ll learn SO MUCH MORE about who you are and what you want out of life.
So go ahead and enjoy this amazing 19th birthday you’re about to have! I’ve compiled some super fun 19th birthday ideas that’ll hopefully help you brainstorm the activities you want to enjoy on this special day.
Super Fun 19th Birthday Theme Ideas

Recreate This Party Idea:
Birthday party photo booths are literally the cutest ever. On this special day, you’ll want to document every moment, and the best way to do it is by snapping tons of photos. If you have a Polaroid camera, great! Since they get printed out instantly, you’ll be able to gift the pictures to your family and friends as a nice memory.
Also, don’t forget to use photo props! They make the entire experience so much more fun!
2. Birthday Photo Shoot In Bed

If you want to feel like a literal princess on your birthday. This birthday idea will suit you perfectly! I mean, waking up with dozens of rose gold balloons floating around your bed? Nothing screams “bougie” more than this, haha!
3. Under The Stars Dinner Party
Recreate This Birthday Idea:
OMG! THIS IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! And I think I just might steal this birthday party idea for my next B-day.
String lights instantly make anything and everything look super magical and romantic. If you’re thinking about hosting an outdoor birthday dinner, definitely grab some of these string lights to decorate the space. I’m sure everyone will love it!
19th Birthday Ideas (Gifts)
1. Make Turning 19 Great Again Mug
I feel like 18th, 20th, and 21st birthdays always get more attention than 19th birthdays. So, just like what Trump would say, “Let’s make turning 19 great again!”
2. Fabulous Birthday Girl Gift Box
If you’re having a hard time figuring out what the birthday girl may want or need for her 19th birthday. Get a nice little birthday gift box for her. It includes a variety of beauty products like lip balm and manicure kit. And even comes with birthday cake chocolate cookies. So cute!
3. Ferrero Rocher Chocolate Gift Box
Ferrero Rocher chocolates are honestly great for any occasion. Christmas, Thanksgiving, Valentine’s day, birthdays, you name it. They’re tasty and wrapped in beautiful packaging, so you really can’t go wrong with gifting someone Ferrero Rochers. (Unless they’re allergic to chocolate or nuts)
Things To Do On Your 19th Birthday
1. Picnic At The Beach
A picnic at the beach is a perfect theme for a summer birthday party, but you can honestly make it work any time of the year. You can either have you and your friends bring food from home, or head over to Trader Joe’s together to pick out your favorite snacks, sandwiches, and drinks!
The best thing about having a picnic at the beach for your birthday is how inexpensive it is, and how you’re able to spend quality time with your friends and family while enjoying the beautiful scenery.
Also, don’t forget to bring a swimming suit and a beach volleyball to make the day even more fun!
2. Sleep Over With Besties
Who can resist a sleepover?! It’s literally the best activity to do on any occasion. On your 19th birthday, invite your close friends over and have an epic Netflix binge-watching night!
Wear your favorite pajamas, and order some delicious takeout food from your favorite restaurant. Or, you could even have a little cooking party with your friends and experiment with new recipes!
Who says that staying in for your birthday has to be boring! With board games, movies, delicious food, and awesome friends in your presence. I’m sure you’ll have yourself a night to remember.
3. Take Over The Local Rollerskating Rink
The best part about going roller-skating with your family and friends is watching them fall on their butts lol! Even if you don’t know how to roller-skate at all, you can still enjoy the thrill of experiencing something totally outside of your comfort zone!
Turning 19 is exciting! And by starting off your first day as a nineteen-year-old with an adventurous activity, you can set the tone for the rest of the year.
The only con to this birthday activity is that you might have bruises and sore joints the next day (if you end up falling a million times at the rink)
4. Coachella Themed Pool Party
If you have a pool in the backyard, throwing a Coachella themed pool party could definitely be a fun birthday idea to consider! Do you have any friends that would love to volunteer to be a DJ? If so, there you go! You have your first Coachella performance act ready.
This birthday party idea is perfect for hot summer days. Make use of this nice weather by inviting your friends over for an awesome pool party. Serve some refreshing ice-cold lemonades, Froyo, popsicles, along with some delicious hot dogs and pizza. I’m sure your friends would have a BLAST!
5. Have An Awesome Karaoke Night
Rent a karaoke machine from the party store nearby and host an epic singing contest with your friends and family! Decorate the living room with dazzling string lights and even a Karaoke disco ball to really set the mood. I’m sure this will get your family friends super hype and maybe even bring out their inner Beyonce.
6. Treat Yourself To A Spa Day
How long has it been since you last treated yourself? No matter what your answer is, it’s definitely time to treat yourself again! Because it’s your birthday, and you deserve it!
If a day at the spa is way outside of your budget, you could totally pamper yourself from the comfort of your own home. Create DIY masks with your friends and family and paint each other nails. Splurge on some fancy bath bombs and thoroughly relax while listening to your favorite music. Honestly! What a great way to celebrate your 19th birthday!
How do I celebrate my 19th birthday with my friends?
There are so many things you can do with your friends on your birthday! You could go on a birthday shopping spree together, picnic in the park, or have a cute sleepover!
You could also treat your friends to a day of pampering, with massages, facials, and mani-pedis. Whatever you do, make sure it’s something that you all enjoy. After all, birthdays only come around once a year!
Why is 19th birthday special?
Your 19th birthday is super special because it’s literally your last year as a teenager : ( So make the most of it! So that on your 20th birthday, you can look back and say goodbye to your teenage years with a smile on your face.
Live your best life and do everything on your ’20 before 20′ bucket list! Go skydiving, take belly dancing classes, or go backpacking in Southeast Asia with your besties!
Happy 19th Birthday! Have Fun!
