Is your dad the person who’s impossible to buy a gift for? Whether he has everything, or is just picky about what he likes, we’re here to help. Father’s Day is very quickly approaching, so ordering a gift in the next few days is an absolute must. As of June 10, Amazon has some sweet pre-Prime Day deals on AncestryDNA and 23andMe DNA test kits, which could be the perfect gift for Dad. Read our guide to all the different versions and shop deals below.
If your dad has always wondered where in the world his ancestors came from, the AncestryDNA Genetic Ethnicity test would make a great gift. After activating the kit online and sending in an easy saliva sample, your Dad will find his family origins — across more than 1,000 regions all over the world. There’s also the possibility of finding your closest living relatives if they’ve also used an ancestry service. If dad really wants to build out his family tree post-DNA testing, he can subscribe to Ancestry’s online service, and get access to millions of photos and records, from birth certificates to marriage certificates, and more.
This kit goes a bit further than the basic genetic ethnicity test by also diving into your physical traits. Discover how your DNA may have influenced your appearance (like your eye color and hair type), sensory preferences (like whether or not cilantro tastes like soap to you), and more. You’ll get an up-close look at how these little traits have been passed down from your ancestors over time. Of course, you’ll still get an ethnicity breakdown and potentially find your closest living relatives, too.
If your dad is a health and fitness fanatic, this kit is the one for him. He’ll get an up-close look at his ethnicity across over 2,000 worldwide regions, start a family tree, and discover traits like how DNA might affect taste and smell preferences. There are also additional features that highlight health, including predisposition reports, wellness reports, and more — for a total look at how DNA influences basically everything.
