My top picks from the Y Combinator 2016 Gift Guide


The well-know Silicon Valley startup accelerator Y Combinator has released their gift guide for 2016, and I’ll be honest, it’s pretty awesome. As you might expect, their gift guide features products and services from companies that went through their accelerator, here are some of my favorites:

VetPronto – think of Uber for veterinarians. A high-quality vet will come directly to your home to take care of your pet…because you know they have zero interest in going in the carrier.

Automatic – I’m a big fan of Automatic and use it myself. This is a great way to instantly allow you to become more connected with the onboard computer in your car.

BlueSmart – yes, it’s 2016 so it should be no surprise that “smart luggage” is a thing, and BlueSmart seems to be the leader of the category.

OneMonth – awesome service for anyone that wants to learn how to code, and do it in a month.

Nebia – while it’s not out yet, this is a pretty slick showerhead that creates ten times more surface area than a regular shower, at the same time it saves water.

There’s a lot more on the list than what I shared so feel free to take a look at the full list of YC gift ideas for 2016 here.
