My Must-Have Gift for the Whole Family

Amy recently wrote a post with gift ideas for the grandparents. One of her ideas was a DNA Kit. My kids are fascinated by their genealogy. My husband is Indian and and I am a mutt (Irish, Italian, Hungarian, some German and god knows what else. Some of the family tress get a little murky when you go back more than 100 years. We tried to tally the percentages one night but decided it would be fun to nail it down and get DNA Kits for my parents, me and my husband, and my kids.

There are several different kits, but after doing some research, they all provide the same results and are about the same price. They’re also available on Amazon prime so you should be able to get in time for Christmas:

23andMe $65, made Oprah’s favorite things list

AncestryDNA Genetic Test Kit $69
