If you are still scrambling for gift ideas, Y Combinator has some suggestions for you. The seed funding accelerator is out with a holiday gift guide featuring some of the products to come through their doors.

Kat Manalac is a partner at Y Combinator, and she joins Cheddar to highlight some of these gifts. First up is the Toymail. The stuffed animals are tech enabled, but do not feature a screen! Baker Machado and Brad Smith open up one of their own on set.

Manalac goes on to talk about the subscription services that are big this season and how it's a fun idea to get a gift that keeps on giving.

Manalac also gives tips on what Y Combinator looks for when they are taking in a start-up. She says passion and drive in a start-up founder is crucial.
