We’ve just launched YCGiftIdeas.com— a collection of clever and unique gift ideas from 60 Y Combinator startups.
Yesterday I was doing some last-minute online Christmas shopping for my dad (I got him an Airbnb gift card), and it occurred to me how many of the YC startups were making things that would make really neat gifts. But they needed to be centralized, so I began pinning them to a Pinterest board. It was so cool how varied and “one-of-a-kind” these products were. Smart watches and jewelry, DIY iPhone repair kits, handcrafted shoes, beauty products and fragrances, Watsi donations– there was something for most everyone there.
I wanted to share this collection with everyone, so I put together a web site. It’s a real v1– not perfect or complete by any means. But there are only 8 more days until Christmas, so I’ve scrambled to launch it and will continue to make updates/changes!
To YC alumni: if I’ve overlooked your product or you’d like a change, email me.
Thanks to Colleen Taylor for her wonderful writing and Strikingly for the quick and easy site building.
