In the eternal worlds of Lizzo, “I just took a DNA test, turns out I’m 100%…” Well, we’ll let you finish the lyric. One of our favorite ancestry kits, 23andMe, is 100% that gift — and it’s on sale just in time for you to complete that line at Thanksgiving.
We can’t help but drool over of all the juicy details this test can derive from a simple saliva sample. This kit from 23andMe can break down where your DNA is from out of over 1,500 geographical regions, including information on whether you have Neanderthal ancestry.
Besides coloring in your family tree, can also help you paint a more complete picture of your genetic health, with more than 10 health predisposition reports, more than five wellness reports, and over 40 carrier status reports. These include healthy lifestyle tips based on your specific genetic traits and dispositions.
This DNA test also makes a great holiday gift, and not just for the brother you’re secretly hoping was adopted. Buy it for your spouse, for your friend who wants to trace her heritage, or use it yourself to identify and connect with cooler, better relatives you had no idea existed.
