There’s a lot to love about this deal. The kit includes the standard Ancestry Service, as well as over 85 DNA-based online reports on mom’s health predisposition, carrier status (a test that determines if she carries certain hereditary conditions), well-being and traits with just one test. After taking the test, she receives reports on how her genes affect her well-being, how DNA affects her facial features, taste and smell, and where her DNA comes from from over 2,000 regions of the world.

Developed and designed by world-class scientists and medical experts, the kits have an excellent reputation. It’s also a painless process: Mom just gives a saliva sample using the home kit and sends it off. Her results will be ready in about six to eight weeks.
