Is it possible to take shallow depth of field photos with point-and-shoot cameras?

I have just bought Nikon Coolpix S6300. I want to take bokeh photograph. So, please tell me how can I set my camera to take bokeh photograph. I don't want to use any software to create bokeh photograph.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Its difficult to get good blurred backgrounds and bokeh with point and shoot cameras like the Coolpix S6300 due to their small sensors. You may consider switching to a point and shoot with a larger sensor and good quality lens like the Sony RX100, or even better, switching to a interchangeable lens camera like a DSLR or a MILC. Prices of entry-level DSLRs and MILCs have dropped considerably and cost as much as high-end point and shoot models. You can consider models like Nikon D3100, Nikon J1, Sony NEX-C3, Olympus PEN E-PL1 etc.

With your current camera, it will be difficult to get this done. At best, you can try this - switch to macro mode, go close to your subject (physically), keep the background at a considerable distance, focus and shoot.
