Every year, you struggle with what to get for your friend who’s impossible to shop for. An AncestryDNA kit is one gadget even he doesn’t have.

The kit gives you a chance to talk about more than just his birthday and the year ahead, giving you a chance to open up new conversations and deepen your relationship with him.

For the adventurous 

Love to cook or travel? AncestryDNA users can take advantage of finding new heritage and ethnic regions by exploring different cuisines or countries. With your ethnicity estimates you can join in on the recent trend of heritage travel. You could even use your estimates to expand your cookbook! If you learn you’re part Indian, you can perfect the Chana Masala recipe you’ve been meaning to try. No matter what you discover, an AncestryDNA kit is sure to get you excited about history and the wider world you can relate to.

For the average Brit

Lots of Brits think of themselves as fully English, but a study by AncestryDNA revealed the average UK resident is only about 37 per cent British! According to the study, English people are largely Irish, French, and German in addition to Anglo Saxon. You might think you or your family’s English lineage goes back for generations, but you might find a surprise only your DNA results will reveal!

For family historians

Paired with the world’s largest online family history resource, this kit helps users identify common ancestors among genetic matches. An AncestryDNA test will point to new directions for research, link her with distant cousins, and open up new stories about her relatives.
