Need ideas for 18-year-old

My dh and I were invited to a birthday party for a girl at church who is turning 18. I know her grandma a little more than her. I don't really know her that well so am at a loss as what to get her. She was in a youth group that my dh had worked with in the past but all he tells me is that she likes to sing and wants to be a worship leader, and likes to do graphics for a newspaper. I also know she likes sports (track) from some pictures that she has given to others at church in the past. Any thoughts on gifts for her?

If you have a Christian book/music store near by what about a gift certificate for there? Or a department store geared towards teens like Deb's?

Thanks for the suggestions everybody. We don't have anything like Deb's here and Big 5 closed, along with lots of other mall stores. The gift card for the Christian book store was a good idea but I didn't get a chance to get out that way, so ended up going to Kohl's and got a bath set with lotion, shower gel and body spray that looked like it was for a teen. The party was this past Friday but it was a dinner outside in the evening and it got so cold that a lot of people left early, including us and it didn't look like she was planning to open her gifts because they were taken inside the house during the dinner.

So many people find it hard finding gift ideas but you can use websites like Ebay and Amazon and just type in a few keywords and see what's popular for the given keyword. These sites are great for ideas when you are looking for some one of a different age group or someone you don't know that well.

For Christmas I will be repeating my "Emergancy Kit" for my mid 20's neice and nephews filled with trial sizes of medicines, personal care items, laundry pods, etc. that I've been able to pick up for cheap or even free with a couple dollars for gas.
