When I start thinking about holiday gifts, I always try to find unique items that stand out to my friends and family. 23andme genetic testing is exactly that and a fantastic learning experience, too.


23andme Genetic Testing -A Unique Gift For All

I received the 23andme genetic testing to try out for this post, but to be completely honest, it’s something that’s been on my mind for a long time. I feel like my family is always saying things like “you’re 62.2% Italian and the rest Polish,” but who really knows? I’ve always wanted to take a concrete trip into my past and learn more about my ancestry and 23andme genetic testing is honestly the easiest way to do that for the entire family. And honestly, this family of mine is so inquisitive, it will satisfy so many questions I’ve been asked over the years!


This year, when it came to holiday gifting, I did things a wee bit differently for the people who are closest to me. I really focused on inspiration or learning gifts or experiences rather than the whole “more is more” approach. Our lives are filled with so many things that we don’t really need and I think it’s amazing to start off the new year knowing something new about yourself.

23andme genetic testing is a gift that’s truly personal and can give you a newfound appreciation and connection to those around you. After I tried my kit out (I will get the results at the end of this month!), my husband was so enamored with the process that I ordered one for him on Black Friday and it’s waiting to be opened on Christmas morning!


How does 23andme genetic testing work?

First, 23andme offers two different types of testing: ancestry and health + ancestry. You can do one or you can do both – it’s completely up to you and much easier than you would think!

You simply order your 23andme genetic testing kit online and follow the instructions for spitting in the tube, then mailing it back to their lab in the pre-paid package. (Hint: make sure you don’t eat or drink for 30 minutes before doing the test.) After 6-8 weeks have passed, you will get emailed your results and have loads of information about your ancestry right in your very hands.


I think it’s so amazing that this exists and I can’t wait for both my husband and I to get our results so that we’ll be able to sit with Branden (Blake’s a little too young for this kind of chat) and tell him information about what makes him the person that he is. This is honestly one of those gifts that you can’t put a price tag on, so if you’re searching for something extra special to gift this year – check out 23andme genetic testing and watch your family and friends be instantly filled with holiday cheer!
