I’m probably one of the hardest people to shop for and I know I’m not alone. I’m willing to bet you have a few people on your holiday shopping list that are hard to shop for. So what do you get someone who is notoriously hard to shop for when you want something that they’ll love? How about a 23andMe Ancestry DNA kit. It’s the perfect gift idea for anyone on your holiday shopping list.
Holiday time is the perfect time to understand your connection with our family. A personal gift like 23andMe is the perfect way to learn more about what makes you unique and form a deeper connection with your family through your genetic information.
This is something I’ve been wanting to do for myself for the longest time. I’ll never forget when I was in about 4th or 5th grade asking my mom what our nationality was for a class project. I don’t remember the project or much else, but I do remember what she said: “I’m not really sure”. I’m not really sure. At the time I thought how do you not know but brushed it off and moved on to the next thing in my life after all I was only a kid.
But all these years later, those words still haunt me. Over the years as I got older I questioned more, talked to more family members and learned more about our mixed race heritage and what makes me unique. I don’t want to ever have to answer “I don’t know” to my kids.
In fact, I want to celebrate all our heritage and it’s one of the things I make sure to teach my kids. We talk about where we come from, our family history – all the Puerto Rican, Native American, German and Irish parts of it – and we celebrate it. I try to incorporate customs from each into our everyday lives so they know their history and who they are.
Now with 23andMe, I’ll get a more definitive picture of who I am and I can share that with my kids.
This is one gift that keeps on giving for years to come. I can’t wait for my mom to unwrap her very own 23andMe Ancestry kit this Christmas.
