Right now, you can score a 23andMe DNA test kit at Amazon for just $149 (down from $199), and the best part? It'll arrive on time with expedited shipping. Phew! If Dad's been curious about his ancestry, there's no time like the present to give him what is arguably the most personalized gift money can buy — and you'll learn a little something about your heritage, too!

Dad simply provides a saliva sample using the at-home kit and sends it in. His results will be ready in about 6–8 weeks.

There’s a lot to love about this deal. The kit includes the standard Ancestry Service, as well as more than 85 DNA-based online reports on Dad's health predispositions, Carrier Status (a test that determines if he carries certain inherited conditions), wellness and traits with just one test. After taking the test, he’ll get reports on how his genes play into his well-being, how DNA influences his facial features, taste and smell, and where his DNA is from out of more than 2,000 regions in the world.

Who knows what he could discover? "I found my dad," said a five-star reviewer. "I'm a sperm donor baby. I followed the instructions, spit in the vial, and found my genetic father. Life is weird but good. Thanks 23andMe."

The kits were developed and designed by world-class scientists and medical experts, and they have a great reputation. It’s also a painless process: Dad simply provides a saliva sample using the at-home kit and sends it in. His results will be ready in about 6-8 weeks.

"No royalty in my family tree — just sheep stealers," says an Amazon shopper. "Better luck next life."

More than 28,400 Amazon shoppers gave this kit a perfect five-star rating, and Dad's sure to love it, too.
