Here we go! Black Friday is upon us. From here on out it’s gonna be hard to be heard over the clanging of the jingle bells and the ringing of the cash registers. Before you’re overwhelmed by the holiday madness, do yourself and your family a favor: Pick up a 23andMe kit as a gift.
No matter who receives it—significant other, parent, or in-law—you’ll be giving them the gift of heritage, memories, and nostalgia. And that’s the kind of gift they’ll always treasure, and never forget.
Today and right through the holidays, you can take $20 off 23andMe’s Ancestry + Trait Service. Normally priced at $99, right now it’s just $79. This deal runs through December 2, so it makes the ideal last-minute gift. But you’d better order today, to ensure it arrives before the holiday rush.
For closer relatives, you may want to consider 23andMe’s Health + Ancestry Service. It digs far deeper, so it makes the ideal gift for loved ones. More than just ancestral heritage, you’re giving someone tools and information they can use to live a longer, healthier, happier life. It’s perfect for immediate relatives and good friends. But hurry! Through December 2 only, the 23andMe Health + Ancestry kit is just $99. That’s a savings of $100!
A 23andMe Ancestry + Traits Kit can provide detailed information on your ancestors and can trace lineage to over 1,500 geographic regions worldwide. It also includes a super-cool Family Tree Builder that lets the recipient of this amazing gift build his or her family tree to share with relatives.
The Ancestry + Traits Service (just $79 through 12/2) is the ideal gift for friends and co-workers because it’s not just fascinating—it’s fun. This kit offers all kinds of interesting genetic information, including over 30 reports that detail the recipient’s proclivity to things such as freckles, baldness, dimples, hair, and eye color. It’s fascinating stuff that goes way beyond family heritage.
23andMe Health + Ancestry Service
The 23andMe Health + Ancestry Kit—$100 off through December 2 only—is perfect for close relatives and loved ones. It includes all the above insightful, fun information—the Ancestry report, the DNA Relative Finder, and the Traits reports—but it goes much deeper into the person’s health and genetics.
The Health portion provides all sorts of detailed health information your loved one can use to live a happier, healthier life. 10 Health Predisposition reports* will outline if they’re particularly susceptible to issues like Type 2 diabetes or celiac disease. They’ll also get Carrier Status reports that let them know if they could potentially be a carrier for things like Sickle Cell Anemia or Cystic Fibrosis.
This vital information will offer a heads-up on health issues to watch for and be wary of, as you and your loved ones—and your children, your genetic heirs—get older. With information like this, they can take proactive measures to live a longer, healthier, happier life, such as altering their diet or exercise regimen. We can’t imagine anyone we truly care for not appreciating this kind of valuable insight into their genetic makeup.
